Past Masters Night

Past Masters Night

Our October Stated started off with a Beehive meeting, than a fantastic dinner prepared by Brother Justin Matthews.   In the Social Hall, we recognised and thanked the members of the Eastern Star that have fed us so heartily all year long and were treated to a wonderful Founder’s Day Program presented by MW Brother James Litten.   In the Lodge, we recognised and honored the Past Masters of Herndon Lodge.  These men served our Fraternity well and continue to support our Lodge.

Once lost, now found

Once lost, now found

Brother David Harrison pondered all the updates that had been made to the Lodge this year while sitting in the Marshall’s chair. From his vantage point he looks directly at the Treasurer’s desk and he pondered why we he had to see the storage space behind the desk that was only partially hidden from view by a curtain. This thought lead to an idea – build a wall that includes a pocket door to block the view. This lead to action – Brother David built the wall! To literally crown the idea, he incorporated a back lit stained glass sign that has hung in Herndon Lodge since we met in the Ames building 50+ years ago. Well done Brother David!

Social at Bad Axe Throwing

Social at Bad Axe Throwing

JoJo (and several others) took a try at an activity that doesn’t come up much in everyday life – axe throwing.   Passions were kept in check and the only worse for wear at the end of the event was the targets (and a few weary shoulders).

The crew puts on their game faces – no knowing what awaits them.

JoJo had an axe to grind and forgot to let go.

October Trestleboard

October Trestleboard

Happy Fall Brethren –

Fall is my favorite time of year.  The summer heat and humidity abates.  The changing leaves provide us with nature’s own color palette.  On a melancholy note, the days do grow shorter and baseball season does wind down with the playoffs.  Soon, All Hallows’ Evening will bring us an abundance of ghouls and goblins to trick or treat at our doors.  Herndon Lodge has been invited to join the District 2 Lodges on their float for the Leesburg parade the evening of the 31st.  WB Greg Valker is the point man should you care to participate.   Read the full Herndon Oct2018 TB.

Thank you Eastern Star !

The Herndon Chapter of the Eastern Star has been quietly very active in Temple activities this year.  They were there helping with the Lodge clean up, making breakfast for our Open House, and serving wonderful meals for the Stated Communications this year.  Other items that the Star handled that should have caught your eye, include new window treatments for all the windows in the Social Hall (including the bathrooms, kitchens, and Bailey room), re-upholstering several of the side chairs, especially noticeable are the 2 now red chairs in the West, and most recently – the addition of an awning to cover the ramp at the back of the building.

 

 

Thank you members of the Star!
