June Trestleboard

June Trestleboard

Brethren –

Well, May was fun.  We pulled off a heavy schedule of degree work, fraternal visits, a Community Builder Award, and a Festive Board (pictures attached at the end).  At our Stated in May RW WO Harrison presented Wor Carroll Groff as a 50 year veteran.  Herndon Lodge presented Wor Groff with a 50 year veteran apron (something new the GLoV approved this year).  Coming up at the June Stated we will be visited by our District Education Officer and Instructor of Work.  I challenged the DEO to present a St John’s program different from those we normally see.  He accepted the challenge so come by to see the result.

Well April certainly had a lot of degree work.  In addition to Brethren observing a Centennial DeMolay Degree, the Lodge conducted Master Mason, Fellowcraft, and Entered Apprentice degrees all in one month.  Congratulations to Bros. Mark Santos and Levi Cleofe – our newest Master Masons.  And we still have more candidates for all degrees (a very nice problem to have)!

March Trestleboard

Brethren –

I’m late, no other way to put it, so let’s get right to it …

In February, we passed two candidates to Fellowcraft, Initiated one new Brother, and elected another for membership.  More petitions are coming in March so I’d like to repeat the plea from our LIW – WE NEED MENTORS AND CATECHISM COACHES.  It’s OK if you are out of practice, we can brush you up.

The year is off to a running start.  At our First Stated we welcomed Right Worshipful Greg Valker, Past Master of Olive Branch Lodge, but who was raised at Herndon. Despite some technical difficulties, RW Valker previewed an array of District 2 activities for the coming year: visits to Drive-Ins, the circus, Strasburg Railroad, and Tank Days at the Americans in Wartime Museum.  Stay tuned for details as events get closer.
