October Trestleboard

October Trestleboard

Brethren,

September was a busy month again for our Lodge.  We had lots of excitement and activity, including a Blood Drive, Herndon hosting the Ken Shelton School, and a return to “normal” with a dinner by the Order of the Eastern Star at our Stated Meeting and a great program by Brother Dan Hrinko.  I purchased a copy of Brother Dan’s books and they are in the Bailey Room Library for your enjoyment and education.  Please feel free to check them out of the Library.

August Trestleboard

August Trestleboard

Brethren,

I hope this letter reaches you well as we begin our slow slide towards the end of summer.  Honestly as I write this, I refuse to call it “August 1” but rather “July 32nd” because for a teacher the start of August means the inevitable “back to school” season.  I look forward to being back with my students, but don’t want to acknowledge that fact just yet!  So hopefully this month we can continue to see some “summer fun” at Herndon Lodge.

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.
