Message from the East
Memorial Day has past but I want to say thank you to all that have served in or armed forces and with a heavy heart the same to those that have lost their lives to protect this great country of ours.
June will be a very busy month with Degree work and our Table Lodge celebrating our patron Saint John. Table lodge will be Wednesday June 24th starting at 6:30pm. Our guest speaker will be former President Teddy Roosevelt. There will be a minimal charge of $5.00. Please contact our JW Mark Chapman to reserve a seat by June 19th. Agw123@earthlink.com. This will be a lot of fun and we plan on filling up our dining room so make your reservation soon.
June 15th is our Stated Meeting and we will be giving out four scholarships to deserving local high school students. This presentation will start at 6:30 pm previous to opening Lodge at 7:00 pm. Please make every effort to make it there to support these great students. The months of July, August and September we will have casual dress code for lodge meetings. Degree work and Table Lodge will still be coat and tie. We still have a barrel downstairs to collect food for the local food bank. If you are able please bring some canned food. I am looking forward to a great summer of friendship and Brotherhood!
Sincerely and Fraternally,
