THE WIDOWS SONS MAGAZINE WELCOMES
THE GRAND CHAPTER OF SUFFOLK
The newest members of the Widows
Sons Masonic Riders Association is the Grand Chapter of Suffolk,
England. The charter was issued on March 22, 2014. A formal
ceremony will be held in the near future where the Officers will be
sworn into their offices and a printed charter will be given to them.
Please visit the website for the Suffolk Grand Chapter at: http://widowssons.ws/suffolk.
A second chapter in Suffolk has began forming. The spirit of the Widows
Sons Masonic Riders Association has spread across UK, with chapters of
Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association also forming in Ireland and
The Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association's primary purpose is aiding
and assisting widows and orphans of master masons. If you are a UK Mason
who desires to aid and assist widows and orphans of our brethren, we
want to talk with you about starting up a chapter in your area.
Each Masonic jurisdiction in the UK will have a Grand
Chapter of Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association. The Grand Chapter
governs the affiliate chapters it charters in its Masonic jurisdiction.
Each Masonic jurisdiction is autonomous of one another, but all are
chartered under the auspices of the International Widows Sons Masonic
Riders Association. There is no governing board in the UK, and no
chapter shall have any voice of vote in the business of another chapter.
A representative of the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association Executive
Council has been appointed so chapters in the UK will have proper
instruction in the following of the goals and intentions of the Widows
Sons Masonic Riders Association.
THE INTERNATIONAL WIDOWS SONS MASONIC RIDERS ASSOCIATION IS NO LONGER
AFFILIATED WITH THE FORMER WIDOWS SONS MASONIC BIKERS ASSOCIATION OF
GREAT BRITAIN. ALL UK CHARTERS WERE REVOKED IN JANUARY

MASONIC RIDERS ASSOCIATION. THEY PRESENTLY HAVE A LETTER DRIVE TO
SOLICIT DONATIONS FOR THEIR CHARITIES FROM THE LODGES IN ENGLAND UNDER
OUR NAME OF THE WIDOWS SONS. PLEASE BE
ADVISED THAT THE INTERNATIONAL WIDOWS SONS MASONIC RIDERS ASSOCIATION'S
FUNCTION IS TO RAISE FUNDS TO AID AND ASSIST WIDOWS AND ORPHANS OF
MASTER MASONS. WE
DO NOT NOT SOLICIT FUNDS FROM MASONIC LODGES OR ANY OTHER MASONIC
BODY, WE CONTRIBUTE 51% OF THE FUNDS WE RAISE TO OUR WIDOWS SONS
GRAND CHAPTER'S WIDOWS AND ORPHANS FUND, OR OUR GRAND MASTER'S
WIDOWS AND ORPHAN'S FUND. THE ONLY CHARITY SET IN CONCRETE FOR THE
WIDOWS SONS MASONIC RIDERS ASSOCIATION IS THE FUND FOR WIDOWS AND
ORPHANS OF MASTER MASONS. DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO ANY REQUESTS FOR
