Out of the East

Brethren,

  I hope this message finds all in good health. It has been a whirlwind year, we have taken on a full year TOGETHER, and added two additional fund raisers to attempt to add funds to the line item for building maintenance, RESERVES.  We have had discussions about finances, because I believe we need to increase our dues, there are some that suggested we need to curb our spending, to date I have heard no input as to WHERE we could cut. We will be voting in January for a dues increase. 

 The dining room is looking great with the addition of new chairs, these chairs cost the Lodge NOTHING. I purchased the chairs, and a bunch of people chipped in to help pay for them, I wish to thank ALL that did this. I intend to purchase a plaque with the names of those contributors. Again at no cost to the Lodge. Be sure to look for this plaque in the dining room, in the near future. 

 I have enjoyed my year as your Worshipful Master, and want to thank my officers, And the active members of the Lodge for all their support and hard work. Together we have worked hard and had great fellowship while doing it. May the great architect keep you and yours safe and healthy.   THANK YOU, MY BROTHERS and SISTERS, for all you do.

Brethren

    As some of you have found, we now have some very nice chairs in our dinning 

room.  We received many compliments from our Rib Fest diners, 

as well as a few donations to help pay for them. Thank you for your help. 

    The Rib Fest went well, with the help of our usual volunteers and some of 

our new Brothers. And also, for the help we have received from some of our 

brothers from other Lodges. This made for less work for everyone, and we must 

thank them for their efforts. 

     We are preparing for upcoming Fellow Craft degrees and always welcome 

anyone who would like to participate in the degree work. We usually practice 

every Monday evening. Call our WM to check. 

     Our next monthly Breakfast will be Saturday, Nov. 10th. The attendance is 

beginning to pick up, with the Snow Birds starting to come home. Please come to 

our Lodge for breakfast and check out the new seating, and don’t forget, “all 

you can eat for 6 dollars”. This month the surprise entree is again “a 

surprise”. 

     These fund raisers are a lot of work and we don’t want to burn anyone out, 

so we need all the help we can get to make it easier on everyone.  

    Many Lodges have had to raise their dues to offset the rising cost of 

keeping the doors open, some more than $300 per year. These fundraisers have 

helped us keep our dues lower. 

     I hope to see you all at our next meeting. Until then, may God bless you 

and keep you and your family safe.

H. Roger Miller 

Senior Warden 

Freemasonry is not about how good of a man you are.... It’s about how good of a 

man, you want to be.

Out of the South

Brethren

 I am writing you from the south for the last time this masonic year. As the year closes and the holiday’s approach us, we still have a little work to do. We still need to help the Worshipful Master with the upcoming fish fry, and the last few breakfasts. Don’t forget to come out and vote in December, as we will be electing the new officers for the upcoming Masonic year. I wish everyone a Happy Holidays and God bless.
