                                         Strategy Report

In accordance with GMR-2014-01, the Board of Trustees of the Masonic Home were directed by the Craft to
prepare a plan for an exit strategy for the closure of the Masonic Home within six months and to include what
assets should be sold, or kept, and what should be kept, and how to properly shut down the Masonic Home. The
Masonic Home Trustees provided a “Contingency Strategy” in December of 2014, and a revision of this
Contingency Strategy on April 20, 2015 (Revision 2). The Contingency Strategy (Rev 2) was printed in the
Advance Proceedings and in the Montana Freemason Magazine.

On May 5, 2015 a Third Revision (Rev 3) of the Masonic Home Contingency Strategy was provided. The
Advance Proceedings and the May Issue of the Montana Freemason Magazine had already been printed. The
President of the Masonic Home Corporation Board of Trustees, David Nielsen asked that Rev 3 of the Masonic
Home Contingency Strategy be made available. Accordingly, the Grand Secretary revised the “online” copy of
the Montana Freemason Magazine to include the Third Revision of the Masonic Home Contingency Strategy.

Therefore if you wish to read the Third (and final) version of the Masonic Home Contingency Strategy
developed in response to GMR-2014-01, please go to the Grand Lodge Website, www.grandlodgemontana.org
and on the right sidebar select “Montana Freemason Magazine” and under 2015 select “May”.
