May 20th was the Masonic Cemetery cleanup day we had ten brothers and family members show up to help. The place looks great! I would like to THANK everyone who helped. It was a lot of work, my back is still sore. On May 22nd the Job’s Daughters used their meeting time to go out to the cemetery and put flags on all the Veteran’s graves. What a great way for the young ladies to honor our Veterans.

Also on May 20th the Job’s Daughters held an initiation and official visit. We now have two new Jobbie girls, please be sure to welcome them and their families at our social events.

Grand Lodge is June 1st and 2nd I look forward to providing a full report with the next Trestle Board. Officers’ s please look ahead and plan to attend next year as this is a fun and educational event.

Hard to believe that it is already June and we are already halfway through the year. As you know we are going “dark” during the summer months. I believe those Brothers who want additional practice can make arrangements to continue with our Degree work through the summer and meet with their Instructors on other nights or outside of the Lodge. I know, speaking for myself, that this year has been busy is an understatement. Also, as you know we have an Outdoor Degree coming up in July and we have visitors from other Lodges visiting, so we need to make the time to make sure we have our degree work in order.
Besides that, enjoy your summer, spend this time with your family, Brothers and friends and get ready for a busy fall at your Lodge. 

And Meet,
On the Level

Fraternally yours,
Keith C. Trahern

Greetings Brethren,
I was fortunate enough to be a side-liner at a practice session for the Second Section of the Master Mason Degree, a few weeks ago, where we had Brethren to perform several parts and carrying on the tradition. This takes a considerable amount of memory and floor work to perfect. Well done, my brothers and thank you. As an imminent brother of our lodge once said, Free Masonry lives on.
We do not have any formal dinners planned for June, however, on stated meeting night, the DeMolay will be providing spaghetti dinner for the attending brothers.

"Just as Freemasons consider the north a place of darkness, so does the operative construction worker consider the north side of the building a place of shade." -Chris Smith.

And Act,
