Brethren,

Welcome to summer brothers, let’s hope the days are warm, the evenings are cool, and it only rains at night. That doesn’t sound unreasonable to me.

This month we will be giving a Third Degree to our new Brother.  If everyone that is available comes out to watch and welcome, it would really go a long way toward showing our candidate we are a supporting group.

Speaking of being a supporting group and forgive me for having to get a little serious, our lodge has sadly become a little stale.  At most meetings it is the same base group of men coming out, most of them past masters.  We are getting close to crisis mode for officers coming in and going through the chairs.

 I/we are asking, nay pleading, please, we need some good men to come in and step up, become more active.  We need good men to come in and work toward leadership positions, work toward bringing in new members, be active and supportive of the Fraternity.  This Lodge belongs to all of us, we all need to put in some level of effort.

 If that effort cannot be to work toward going through the chairs, then can each member that is physically able please take some raffle tickets to sell so our fundraisers can be profitable, and we can be philanthropic as well as keep the lights on.

 We will be doing two (2) fundraisers this year, the present Gun Raffle, and a Pig Raffle in the fall.  If anyone would like to get some tickets to buy or to sell, just reach out to any of us, and we will get them to you.

Thank you for at least considering these requests, and as we go dark for July and August, I wish you all a great summer!

 PS: Our incoming Senior Deacon, Charlie Knapp, will not be able to take his seat for a few months while he recovers from surgery.  We wish him speedy recovery.  If any brother wants to volunteer to fill his seat in the meantime, that would be swell!  Let us know.

 

Being neither a Christian nor a Jew, a Muslim nor a Hindu, being  a Democrat nor a Republican.  Being black, white, Hispanic, Asian, nor Indian.  Being rich nor poor, has anything to do with me amongst my brethren behind this door.  Only my trust in God, the faith in my brothers, and the charity given to mankind because of my actions matter in this place.

I AM A FREEMASON
