We find ourselves in March already. Just think only 294 day left until Christmas! Where does time go? The dues have been coming in at a slow pace. We have 36 members who still owe for 2020 and 11 that owe for 2019. Please check your dues receipt.
I attended the Secretaries Retreat on the 7th, 8th and 9th. I learned a few thing and I learned some of the new programs that the Grand Lodge in planning. The California lodges are 95% computer dependent. Technology is starting to pass over old-timers like me. This is my 43rd year as a lodge secretary. Where does time go?
On Saturday April 4th I will receive my 50 year pin. I would like to see you at the dinner that the lodge is planning for me.
We picked up a few new members, two for affiliation and one for the degrees. As of this writing we have 233 members. Last month I reported Brother Norman Shrader as having passed away. I got a notice from the U.S. Postal Service that he had died. Turns out Brother Shrader called me and I was informed that he is alive and well. Sorry about that Brother Norman!
It looks like the lodge will hold two second degrees. Here is a chance for you to come out and witness the very fine work your officers
