My term as Master is half over and I want to thank everyone for their support so far this year. We have accomplished many things and will continue to do so for the remainder of the year.
As the sun in the sky at meridian reaches its zenith for the year remember that we do not go “dark”. As Freemasons we never go dark. Although we may not see each other for several weeks, the light each of us emits will always reach the rest of the brotherhood. Think of the summer break as going on an extended refreshment. We are still a lodge and we continue to do the work we perform outside of the lodge room including charity, fun, and brotherhood.
Please continue to support our ongoing food drive for those who are less fortunate than we are. You may contact me or WB Jeffrey Rawley if you have donations to make. We will also have several social events over the summer break included in the Trestleboard & Dates for Your Calendar sections of this trestleboard. I hope to see you all there.
Freemasonry is an attempt to organize harmony, and therefore it is essential that all its arrangements for the promotion of concord should be of the most perfect character and most delicately adjusted. Whatever tends in the least degree to produce disagreement and discord, to cause a jarring and clashing among the elements composing the society, or any of its branches, must have a tendency to defeat the purposes of the institution, must in itself be destructive of the spirit of Masonry, and must be something foreign to that spirit, something not to be cultivated, but to be avoided by Masons
