Installation of your 2020-21 Grand Lodge Officers
In conformance with and under the authority of the Constitution and By-laws of our Jurisdiction, on Friday, March 20th, 2020, at the Grand Lodge building in Topeka, Grand Master Delmus R. “Dale” Morrow formally turn over the leadership role as Grand Master to Deputy Grand Master Anthony W. “Tony” Borum. Brother Borum was duly elected Grand Master at the previous Annual Communication in Wichita and has served as Deputy Grand Master since that time. M∴W∴ Morrow personally performed the installation. This installation that usually takes place as a public event was instead completed with only necessary attendees present. This was done out of an abundance of caution and to follow the recommendation of the Center for Disease Control. We will do our best to bring that installation to you as a recorded video.
Your current elected Grand Lodge officers, which includes Grand Senior Warden Mikel J. Stoops, Grand Junior Warden Michael D. Johnson II, Grand Treasurer B. Cole Presley, and Grand Secretary Tracy L. Bloom, will retain their offices until the 164th Annual Communication can be held, and the official election of officers takes place.
All 2019-2020 appointed Grand Lodge Officers’ terms ended on March 20th at Noon.
All 2020-2021 appointed Grand Lodge Officers’ terms will begin soon. Further information about this will be sent at the appropriate time.
