Well, here we are, the first quarter of 2011 is gone. Where did it go??? Last month we announced that the third Wednesday of each month would be fun night in place of ritual practice. We seem to have some great hunting story tellers and card sharps in the croud. Of course I belong to neither croud. If you would like to join us, we meet in the dining room of the Lodge at around 7:00 PM and leave when everyone runs out of wind. All members and visitors are welcome to join in. Visitors need not be a member of the Lodge, bring a friend. We need some new blood to spice up the action. We would also encourage anyone to make a short presentation to the group concerning any hobbies, picture presentations, video presentations, Masonic History or history of the local area, or anything else of interest. No dancing girls please.
Please mark our next stated meeting, April 9, 2011, on your calendar. Not only is it stated meeting night, but also we will be honoring Bro. Frank C. Cope III with his Golden Veterans Award commemorating his fifty years in Masonry.
By the time everyone receives this, all of the hunters at the Annual Masonic Pheasant Hunt will have slew all of the clay birds and downed all of the wily pheasants unlucky enough to be in the near vicinity. We will look forward to the stories and pictures of the event.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all and a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow.
Rich Sweet, Secretary
