From the East – October 2013


Though we have been dark for July and August, we have been very busy and you will notice obvious changes to our Temple!

First and foremost, our by-laws change was approved and so our Stated Meetings will now be on the 2nd Mondays of every month and our Called Meetings will be on the 4th Mondays. So, coming back from being dark our first meeting was Monday, September 09th. With a ton of business to attend to, the meeting went pretty late, but was a resounding success. On Thursday, September 12th, Brother John Nagy again hosted the Building Better Builder’s Workshop and went over the Entered Apprentice Degree. He will have another workshop covering the Fellowcraft Degree and then still another covering the Master Mason Degree with dates to be announced. Whichever the dates, food will be served at 6:30 pm and the workshop will begin promptly at 7 pm. On Saturday, September 21st we will had breakfast beginning at 7:30 am and another very successful coin and stamp show. The show prior was on March 3rd was also great success. These shows are proving to be a great way to showcase our Lodge within the community as well as raise money. We will have another breakfast at 9 am on Saturday, October 19th. There will certainly be degrees coming up and we will make announcements accordingly as those plans come to fruition. All of these activities will ultimately help to strengthen our Spiritual Temples and I hope to share in fellowship with you all in these experiences. Our Lodge Temple has also undergone some noticeable upgrades.

The building has received some new additions that I think everyone will notice immediately upon entering and now boasts a new Secretary’s Office that looks fabulous. We have been very fortunate to have gotten the help of a great many Brothers and their families to make all of this come together so smoothly. All of the time and effort and most of the materials and other items were donated to these projects. It was a very fun and fulfilling experience as 13 of us came together for a common cause. Our motivation and Teamwork was evident and infectious! I believe that overall, we will become better organized and will enjoy more fellowship as a result of these changes and I am sure that The Craft will agree.

Come out and check out the new additions to our Lodge!


Scott Mitchell, Worshipful Master
