Message from the East
I am writing this the day after our Table Lodge to celebrate our patron St John. What a great night of fellowship and Brotherhood. I was pleased to see just as many visitors as Widow’s Sons’ members. The Lodge owes a debt of gratitude to our JW Mark Chapman along with his wife Susan and RW Bill Bond’s wife Tracy for assisting with the prep and the clean up. We were honored to have President Teddy Roosevelt as our speaker and what a fine speaker he is. I want to thank our Grand Chaplin of the Grand Lodge of Virginia RW Jim Dickerson for putting on an interesting and certainly thought provoking Masonic Education program at our June stated meeting. In our July Stated I am pleased to announce that we will have Brother Greg Hosaflook provide the program for the night. It will be entitled "Field Artillery of the Civil War" I have seen brother Hosaflook put on two previous programs on Fire Arms and learned a lot. Please come out and join us July 20th at 7pm for this
Piedmont Stella Lodge #50 will be hosting a district "Bring a Friend Breakfast" at Worshipful Mike Skeens Bed and Breakfast The Rosebrook Inn on August 1st at 9:30am. If you know a fine Man that has had in interest in Freemasonry please feel free to join us. Last year was a success for not only our Lodge but also King Solomon's 194 and Piedmont Stella 50. If you have not been able to attend Lodge this year I encourage you to join us. If you feel like you may be "rusty" there is no need to be embarrassed. We are glad to assist anyone that may need a quick catch up on signs and passwords. The dress code from now till September will be "casual" attire. Polo shirt and dress slacks. No need for a tie or Jacket. Thank You so much for supporting not only me but also the Officers of Widows Sons Lodge.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
