The first of October was Apple Harvest Time in Fortuna and your Lodge was at the Strongs Creek Plaza again this year to provide the “Children’s ID Program”. We processed a total of 150 young people this year. I wish to thank Bro. Duane Plant and my wife Eleanor for their assistance with the project. Again this year, the Joker Clowns provided entertainment for the little ones with their balloon art and colorful costumes.
Please Note: Contrary to what was said in the last Trestleboard, Eel River Empire Installation of Officers will be held on Demember 3, 2011 at 2:00 PM in the Fortuna Masonic Lodge at 922 Main St. Fortuna. It will be an open installation and everyone is invited to attend.
Bro. Mike Flockhart will be receiving his Mason of the Year award on October 25, 2011 at the Fortuna Masonic Lodge, 922 Main St. Fortuna. Dinner will be served at 7:15 PM with the program to follow. This award is provided by the Scottish Rite Body of Santa Rosa and as Mike was unable to attend the presentation in Santa Rosa, it will be presented by the Scottish Rite Valley of Northern California. This event will be in conjunction with their Feast of Thishri.
Richard H. Sweet, Secretary
