FROM  THE EAST

June 2010

My Brothers,

 Our first meeting in May as mandated by Grand Lodge Constitutions was the election of officers for the ensuing year. It is my honor and privilege to be elected Master again.

 Several years ago, in 2003, two lodges merged with the hope of forming, in time, a new stronger lodge. It was a new beginning, or if you will, a new foundation. Now seven years later, we have a lodge where brothers wait to get into line, help out during degrees, or support the lodge by being regular sideliners and coming to lodge for the fellowship. Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

 The second meeting of the month was a second degree. We passed five brothers to the degree of Fellowcraft.  I must tell you my brothers, it was a very special evening. W∴ Pete Lupo did a fantastic job in the East. Bros. Al Vargas and Josh Sundquist did a great job with the questions and answers. Bro. Andrew Lupo did his usual great job with the working tools as did W∴ Steve Miller with the charge. Bro. Michael Geller finished up his year as Sr. Deacon in great fashion and will now move on up to the Jr. Warden’s chair.

 My thanks to the brothers who also contributed by acting as conductors during the degree and also came down to the rehearsal. A very special thank you to W∴ Bart Forvath of Spartan Lodge who presented the ‘Middle Chamber’ lecture. To all of this my brothers there is something else I must add, dare I say it, the night was fun, yes fun. We all worked hard, very hard, to put on this degree and to do competent ritual, and excellent ritual it was, but it was the fellowship and brotherhood at the dinner before and the collation after the meeting that helps make our lodge a fun place to be on meeting nights.

 With each new brother raised, a new brick is added to that foundation. In addition to the five Fellowcrafts, we already have on the trestleboard for the fall, a new class of eight and possibly ten applicants. How tall will our lodge grow? As high as the heavens!  At this moment the sky is the limit!

 Our first meeting in June is awards night. It promises to be very special as we will be honoring several brothers for their many years of service to the craft. The second meeting of June, will be our annual installation of officers for the ensuing year. The  Installation will be a tiled meeting and I welcome and invite all brothers to please come down and support your lodge.

 May everyone  enjoy the summer. Have fun, but please be safe and I will see you all again in the fall.

 Fraternally,

Jay

FROM THE SECRETARY’S DESK

My Brothers;

 Your 2010 dues are due. As you know, dues are due on the 1st of January, each year. Included with this mailing are the 2010 dues cards for all members who have already made their payment for this year. If you do not yet have your 2010 dues card, please make an effort to send in your payment so that that your new and current dues card can be mailed to you.

 Another dues notice will be included with next month’s meeting notice for all those with dues still outstanding. Please make every effort to make your payment as soon as possible. Your dues are the lifeblood of the lodge and these funds are used to cover all of our expenses.

 If you feel there is an error on your statement, please contact the secretary immediately.


Tidings

W∴ Peter Lupo went to visit Bro. Peter Lukas and reported that he is not doing well. He is a resident in the Long Beach Nursing Home. W∴ Peter will visit him again this weekend and will report back to us. I’m sure that Bro. Peter would welcome a visit from any of his brothers.

 Congratulations to WSteve and Patty Miller, their youngest daughter will be graduating from college on Memorial Day.

 Congratulations to WStan and Ann Saffron who will be celebrating their 56th wedding anniversary on May 30th.
