A problem has arisen between the United Nations and the Sovereign Grand Lodge United Nations Pilgrimage for Youth. We really
don't know the particulars of this but we do know a Cease and Desist order has been sent from the United Nations to the Sovereign
Grand Lodge. The Odd Fellows are to remove all mention of the United Nations or the initials U.N. from all of our material, By Laws, etc: The Grand Master of Missouri has formed a Cease and Desist Committee to implement this order. All lodges will be required
to review their by laws for any mention of the United Nations, any material includes manuals, brochures, pamphlets or any other item and destroy. All lodges will be required to insert into their By Laws a non-discriminatory policy provided by the S.G.L. and to
submit revised By Laws as soon as possible to the Grand Warden. Lodges will also be required to submit in writing that all material has been scrapped. There will be no U.N. Pilgrimage in 2018 and possibly longer, this program has been in existence for over 60-years. What happens with it we'll have to wait and see.
