"The magic in these Masonic rituals is very, very old. And way back in those days, it worked. As time went on, and it started being used for spectacle, to consolidate what were only secular appearances of power, it began to lose its zip. But the words, moves, and machinery have been more or less faithfully carried down over the millennia, through the grim rationalizing of the World, and so the magic is still there, though latent, needing only to touch the right sensitive head to reassert itself." - Thomas Pynchon


February will be quite active starting of course with stated meeting Feb 7th at 7pm and, yes there will be refreshments.

Next, Feb 14th, Valentine's Dinner. Because this is the evening that celebrates the true magic of life, so gentlemen don't let her miss out on smoked pot roast, mashed potatoes & gravy, veggies and desert. Sounds good, dinner is at 6:30.

We have degrees planned for the rest of the month starting with a Fellow Craft degree Feb 21st at 7pm. There are many words of wisdom in this one. Feb 28th after the officers meeting at 6:30 we will be doing an Entered Apprentice degree. Wouldn't it be amazing for the candidate to hear the rumble and clap of a lodge full of freemasons when being brought to light for the first time.

And Act,
