We have passed through that long tunnel and it sure looks good on this far side. Your Officers have hit the ground running, and are doing an excellent job at getting the Lodge back on track for all the in-person activities we hope to complete during my remaining term as your Worshipful Master.
In the month of July, we have seen several prospects gracing our halls, desiring to become Masons. We have also diligently been practicing for a First Degree for Mr. Randy Lehman on July 15th, with Bro. Junior Warden J. Rafisura sitting in the East! We may even see a double First Degree Proficiency on this special night. Please be in attendance, as we welcome our newest Brother into our ranks.
Soon after this 1st degree, your officers will quickly change gears and rev-up for Fellowship degrees in August. This will see your next Worshipful Master, Bro. Senior Warden Brian Ross sitting in that Oriental Chair in the East. It’s also our hope to see Second degree proficiencies later that same night.
It has been my hope that within my term as Worshipful Master, to do a traveling 3rd degree within the iconic “Mendocino Masonic Lodge No. 179”, situated on the beautiful Northern California coastal town of Mendocino. We are now in contact with their Principle Officers located in the Fort Brag Masonic Hall, to raise one of our
Fellowcrafts to the sublime degree of Master Mason on the Saturday, Oct 2nd, 2021.
Stay tuned for more info to come as we work through all our preparations, and please have a look at the Trestleboard Calendar to see other Masonic activities we have scheduled. It’s going to be a fantastic second half of the year and I look forward to seeing you all again as we practice our craft, welcome new Brothers, and share time with each other at these events.
In wrapping up, I would like to remind you that your Officers are always just a phone call away should you need anything or would like to share something with the Lodge. Our phone numbers and email addresses are easily found within this periodical, and on the Lodge website.
