This Dispensation is in effect immediately, and will remain in effect until March 7, 2015.

A Stated Communication may be omitted at the discretion of the High Priest after appropriate authorities have issued warnings advising motorists to remain off the highways due to hazardous driving conditions.

High Priests are advised that prior permission of the Grand High Priest is not necessary when deciding to omit a Stated Communication due to inclement weather of hazardous driving conditions.

Your Grand High Priest wants ALL Companions to be safe when attending a Stated Communication so monitor your local weather conditions and if you feel that omitting a Stated Communication is necessary please do so and notify your local Companions as early as possible.

Your minutes may reflect the fact that a Stated Communication was not held due to inclement weather pursuant to a Dispensation issued by the Grand High Priest.

With fervency and zeal,


M:.E:. Piers A. Vaughan
