To the Nobles and Ladies of Sudan Shriners,


I come to you today with a distressed and broken heart with news concerning our Spring Ceremonial hosted by our wonderful and dedicated friends at the Johnston County Shrine Club. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has devastated our country as it has the world. This same devastation has trickled down into our personal lives as well as our Masonic/Shrine world. I feel that I can’t wait any longer to make the decision, so after many hours of consideration, I have decided to cancel our Ceremonial. I can’t predict the future and there is no way that I can say that this virus will be behind us by May 15th. I want everyone to have time to cancel any reservations they may have already made. I hope and pray that you are all staying safe and healthy and we can soon get back to normal.


Fraternally Yours,


Allen Buddy Brown

Potentate Sudan Shriners
