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!

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!

Eagle Project

Eagle Project

SD Eric LeHew moonlights as a Boy Scout.  He brought Scout Michael Gloss and his Eagle Scout project to our Lodge.  Michael (and team) refreshed our side porch – scraping and painting all the trim as well as the trash enclosure (which was a separate Eagle project) and installed new screen doors.  He even built us a bench that has been placed on the porch to rest our weary bones.  Thank you to Michael and his team!

Spring Clean Up | April 7

Spring Clean Up | April 7

The weather kept us indoors, but plenty of hard work was done to clean up and repair items around the Lodge.   Thanks go out to the Jobies, DeMolay and Eastern Star for their support.   Also to Brothers Bennett Corrado, Brutus Cooper, Chris Pendleton, David Harrison, Rob Martin, David Twigg, Rob Worthington, Jim Dietzel, Eric LeHew, and WO Harrison for their time, energy, and dedication to the Lodge.

 

 

 

 

 

Spring is in the air.   One day soon the cold will break, the flowers will bloom, and the sun will warm us all.

To prepare for that, plan to to help on April 7 for the Temple clean up day.    The Town will hold its pick up everything the following week so this provides us a grand opportunity to clean out, refresh, and renew.

Some have already started.   The Eastern Star has replaced the curtains (hung in the Fellowship Hall in 1987) with new blinds.  Thank you very much for this change!     

 

 

 

 

Brother Rob Martin has taken charge of his area – cleaning and organizing the Tyler’s position.   He even shined up the door knocker!  

 

 

 

 

Bro David Harrison replaced the failed light at near the sidewalk – bringing light thru Masonry!
Crews will be working on the 7th both inside and outside the Lodge.   Please come to lend a hand.
