From the Secretary ProTem

My Brothers,

Again, we would like to stress the fact that we are having returned or undeliverable Trestleboards. We need to have you update your mailing address and e-mail address and phone numbers. This will enable us to be more efficient and not continue to be expensive to your lodge. Thank you.

Please let Brother Sam know if you can help in the kitchen and Brother Wayne if you can help with cleaning the lodge room. On Tuesday the 12th we will be visiting Ribault lodge to get their traveling Gavel, we will need at least 5 brothers to attend. Br. Sam Sheider and his degree team will be putting on a Fellowcraft Degree for 5 Brothers on the 16th, again if you can help with this degree please let Brother Sam know. At our second stated meeting we will be discussing upcoming legislation that will be voted on at Grand Lodge communication May 24th-27th. If any Brother would like to read the legislation please contact me or RW Frank for a copy. Please be on the lookout for information on a Lodge Steak night on August 22nd, details will be coming soon!

Finally I’d like to thank all the brothers that came out and helped with our day of yard work at a couple of our Past Masters’ houses, it was greatly appreciated.

Please keep all our brothers that have been ill in your prayers, most especially Br. Art Barfield, W. Richard Abdullah, W. George Montgomery, and James Gaskins.
