May Trestleboard

May Trestleboard

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.

April Trestleboard

April Trestleboard

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!

March Trestleboard

March Trestleboard

Brethren,

Another month come and gone; another successful Virtual Meeting for our shuttered Brothers at home.  Thank you to recently raised Bro. Matt Lang for reading RW Pobat’s LEO program on Valley Forge that complimented my program on the Washington Monument.  Both programs were well received and enjoyed by all who could attend.  I believe we will be able to continue with one more Virtual Meeting for March and see what transpires further in the spring.

February Trestleboard

February Trestleboard

Brethren –

As I reflect on the new month to come, I am tempted to write some anecdote about love and Masonic Relief and sprinkle some images of Valentine hearts into the calendar at the end of this Trestleboard. I’m tempted by the supermarkets filled with candy (so much for the January resolution to lose some weight!), and an urge to tell you all to spend some time with your loved ones. But I won’t as I never was good at such advice. However, I am going to share a story with you this month about my Father and Grandfather and my Family’s Masonic connections as it is timely for the month of February.

January 2021 Trestleboard

January 2021 Trestleboard

Brethren –

Happy New Year!  I hope this letter reaches you well and in good spirits as we end a very turbulent year.  My hope is that 2021 will soon see some return to normalcy in the Lodge, but until then we will continue to plan our events, and stated meetings knowing that the continuing COVID Pandemic will impact our executions.
