July Trestleboard

July Trestleboard
Brethren –
Being a history teacher, the Fourth of July has special meaning for me; I get to share my love of history and Americanism with my students and studying the American Revolution and Early Republic Periods with my students is always one of my favorite topics. The opportunities to discuss some of our Founding Fathers (and for us as Masons, Brothers) is always a guilty pleasure of mine knowing the connections I have to such famous men of history. I hope you too take some time to consider the significance of America’s Independence Day as we celebrate our one hundred and forty-fifty birthday! That is the topic of our Masonic Education Article this month: Masonry and Independence Day and comes to us from the 1924 Short Talk Bulletin. It is an extensive evaluation of Masonic values considering Independence Day immediately after World War I, and despite being published nearly 100 years ago, it still resonates with Masons today. I hope you enjoy.

Brethren,

I hope this mailing reaches you all well and refreshed from the long Memorial Day weekend.  Wither it was spent time with family at a cookout or friends at a picnic I hope you gave pause to remember the thousands of men and women who have given their lives in the service of our great nation.  We especially remember those Brothers who have and are serving in our armed forces.  Thank you for your service.

Brethren –

Last month I did a hard copy of the April Trestleboard. I hope you all received it. I wanted to mix up the digital world we’ve been engaged in for so long with a little tangible connection to the Lodge. Please let the Secretary or I know if you didn’t receive it; we may need to update our mailing records for you.

Brethren –
Spring has finally spring at Herndon Lodge.  As I write this, the daffodils are just starting to poke out of the ground, and the Dogwood trees in front of the Lodge are starting to bud and will soon burst forth with color.  It is good reminder of the “fresh” start that Spring normally means.  Our Senior Warden has some thoughts on that matter in his “From the West” section you might want to check out.

“Drive-by” Canned Food Drive

“Drive-by” Canned Food Drive

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

On very short notice (the next endeavor will have more lead time) the Masonic family came together to donate 431 pounds of much needed supplies to needy area families.

Special thanks to BRETT!, Jason, Jennifer, and Cindy for handling the collections and delivery to the Pantry.

We’ll do it again! This coming Saturday morning (September 26), Herndon Lodge will be accepting non-perishable food donations for the benefit of The Pantry at South Lakes High School.

Please enter the Lodge parking lot via the Grace Street entrance and drive to the rear of the building where Masons will be standing by to accept your donation.  Operating hours are from 9AM until 11AM on September 26.

Thank you in advance for your support of this worthy charity! Let’s see if we can double up the last donation!

Donations rolled in from Herndon Brothers, Herndon OES members, and Brothers from Freedom and Hamilton-Thompson Lodges as well.  Brothers Axel, Brett, and Micheal sported their Lodge masks to collect, sort, inventory, and deliver the donated goods.   Amy and the others at the SLHS Pantry were very excited and appreciative to receive a pickup truck load of food and other items to support the many people in need that accept the Pantry’s aide.

The donation by the numbers… 47 pounds of rice, 30 cans of soup, 124 packages of pasta, 93 cans of veggies, 55  toiletry items.    All together, 538 pounds of goods were donated to help others in need.

Thank you for your generous support and especially to the Brothers that manned the “drive-by” lane!
