By Lyman Penning — Jr. Warden
As I am writing this article, I am getting ready for our visitation to Volcano Lodge. Also, I am working on the ritual for the Ritual Competition that will conclude in Fresno on Saturday, September 30th.
Regarding the Ritual Competition, I do not know yet as to whether I am going to Fresno to compete in the final rounds. The top four winners in the Division Level will be competing in the final session. I have not been notified yet, but there is still a chance that I will be in Fresno. The winner of the final round will be recognized at the Grand Lodge Annual Communications. Stay tuned for more details.
In addition to our Stated Meeting Dinner on Thursday, September 7th, Brian Ross will be receiving the Hiram Award the following week on Thursday, September 14th at 6:30 PM. Please get Stated Meeting reservations to me by Thursday August 31, 2023 (Perry Klahr will be on vacation), and make Hiram Award reservations to Brian Ross at (510-331-6935) by Thursday, September 7th.
Finally, our next District School of Instruction will be held in Pleasanton on Tuesday, September 12th. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 PM with the school following at 7:00 PM.
See you in Lodge everyone
