February Trestleboard

February Trestleboard

Brethren –

I’d like to congratulate Bro. Ray Vargas and Bro. Slobodan Vasalic on being raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason. I would also like to thank all the brethren who took part in the degree and those who showed up to support our brothers. I counted over twenty brothers in attendance that night which is very good for a Called Meeting.

December Trestleboard

December Trestleboard

Brethren –

Well that’s a wrap.

I started the year thanking everyone for electing me, and I’ll end the year saying it again: Thanks.  It really was better the second time around.  I hope all of you got as much out of this past year as I did.  Thanks to all of you for all your help, and especially to the fine Masons who served as Officers this past year.  I couldn’t have done it without you.

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

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.
