    Many of you have been here in the Wardens Chairs and have to write something for the Trestle Board. So what I am about to say might not surprise you. I thought and looked hard to add something and just thought “Man I have got nothing”. So I will add something a little more personal of “What is on my mind and heart”

As Masons we are to help distressed Worthy Master Masons but what does that really mean? I look around my life and I see many that are distressed. Financially, wives are sick, or the Mason themselves are sick, personal struggles and just overall general LIFE. Most men and Masons will not admit or divulge that they are struggling. Call it Pride, Honor, Old School or whatever. I believe we need to keep on the watchful eye for ways to help each other and still let them keep their pride and honor. I know I was raised to honor your parents and In general someone that is older than you. No matter how they act to keep our selves with in due bounds. Many times we look at society today and think that still is not the case, but I have been around enough youth to know that it is still there. Society has just gotten bigger and the kids that are disrespectful are just more prevalent. I just know I pray for our Lodge, the Masons and their families, Society, and our Country. Like I said, really didn’t know what to say, just had to say what was on my mind and heart. 

With that, here is a quote from George Washington
“Being persuaded that a just application of the principles, on which the Masonic Fraternity is founded, must be promoted of the private and public prosperity, I shall always be happy to advocate the interests of the Society, and to be considered by them a deserving brother.”

And Meet,
On the Level

Fraternally yours,
Keith C. Trahern
Senior Warden
