January 2018 Trestleboard

January 2018 Trestleboard

Greetings Brethren:

Thank you for electing me and the other Officers to serve you in 2018.   Together, we look forward to making this transition year a fun and active one for the DOERs of Herndon Lodge.  2018 will be our last in District 4 as next year we will move to become part of District 2.  While it will be hard to leave old friends behind, it also is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends.

Herndon Temple now reopened!

Herndon Temple now reopened!

Begining at 2200 hours on Monday December 18 through the morning of Tuesday December 26 the Herndon Temple will be CLOSED to all access.   The Social Hall will be emptied of all its contents so that the floor may be refinished and sealed.

Please remove any needed items before the 18th.   Current plan is for the building to re-open the day after Christmas.

Thank you to Brother Eric LeHew and David Ferhle for clearing out the Social Hall so that the floors could be refinished and to Brother Rob Martin for keeping a watchful eye on the work crew.   The work is underway!

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

Proving that not all fellowship is conducted at the Lodge, a contingent of Herndon, Freedom, and Treadwell Brothers and family travelled to Gettysburg to take in a production of “A Christmas Carol” presented by the Totem Pole Players.   This outstanding production of the play saw Ebenezer Scrooge redeemed of his inhospitable and miserly ways to come to the comfort and aid of his fellow human beings.   Afer the show, the travelling crew then called off to refreshment at the Dobbin House Tavern where the fellowship continued in grand fashion resplendent with toasts to the group and to the season.

Merry Christmas from Herndon Lodge !!
