August Trestleboard

August Trestleboard

Greetings Brethren –

July started out on a slow note as the Lodge room was closed for repairs.  The repair work is now complete and all items were returned to their proper places in time for our July Stated.  Thank you Bro Rob Martin for making that happen!  Photos of the Lodge room before, during the repairs, and after are on the Lodge website.    Read the full Trestleboard here: Herndon Aug2018 TB

July Trestleboard

July Trestleboard

Greetings Brethren:

In June, we took a break from degree work and instead focused on our youth and social activities.  Bro Brian Coleman did a great job supporting our activities at the Herndon Festival.  The DeMolay and the Bethel both installed new officers for the upcoming term – congratulations to Master Councilor Carter Gill and Honored Queen Lexi Marsh for taking on roles of responsibility within their groups.  Together with Freedom Lodge, we enjoyed great weather and better fellowship at our Lodge picnic.  At our Stated, Bro Rob Martin provided a reminder of the importance of donating blood (blood drive on the 27th) and WB Don Gauger provided an informative program regarding St Johns Day.  We concluded the month with a fraternal visit to A. Douglas Smith Lodge of Research.

June Trestleboard

June Trestleboard

Brethren –

May was another active month for Herndon Lodge.  In separate Called Communications, we initiated a new member and on Memorial Day, we raised Bro Brad Morrell.  It is quickly becoming a tradition to sink your teeth into; Bro Morrell and his family provided a great dinner before his raising.  Please welcome Bro Brad to Lodge when you see him.

May Trestleboard

May Trestleboard

Greetings Brethren:

The Temple is really shaping up.  We started the month with a Temple clean up and repair day.  The Bethel, DeMolay, Eastern Star, and many Brethren pitched in to clear out the storage and the kitchen areas, make repairs and paint in the Lodge room, and clean anything that was not moving.   Pictures from the day’s work are posted on the Lodge website.   Special thanks to Bros David Harrison, Brutus Cooper, Chris Pendleton, Rob Martin, Brian Coleman, Rob Worthington, Howie Snowdon, Bennett Corrado, and Jim Dietzel for your time and energy supporting this effort.   Thank you to the OES for the new blinds in the Social Hall and Bailey room.  We are not done quite yet.  In the Lodge room, plans are underway to repair and paint the ceiling damage caused by an AC leak and to repair the wall cracks started by the 2011 earthquake.

April Trestleboard

April Trestleboard

Greetings Brethren:

Spring has finally sprung.  We have made it past the equinox and are adding about 2 ½ minutes of daylight as each day passes.  Herndon Lodge was busy during the cold winter months.  In March, we had a dozen Brethren attend local DLCs.  Herndon exemplified the EA degree at the CA Sinclair Area School.  In separate Called Communications, we raised Bro Adnan Hadrovic to be a Master Mason – congratulations Bro Adnan – and initiated 2 new Brothers at the end of the month.  We also squeezed in a fraternal visit to Freedom Lodge to help them raise Bro Lee McPeak.  Congratulations as well to Kathy Rutter – Herndon OES Chapter’s newly installed Worthy Matron.
