BREAKING NEWS: We were successful in capturing the 19th district traveling
gavel from Burlington Lodge Tuesday, April 28th. We are the third lodge to
capture it since the start of this contest in February. I am very grateful for the
willingness of my fellow brothers who traveled with me to claim this prize.
However, in the spirit of brotherhood, I don’t expect to keep it for very long.
Hopefully five or more brothers from another lodge will come to claim it. The
friendly competition encourages brothers to visit other lodges in the district
and learn something new in their travels. I am also proud to inform you that
the 19th district won the award for Best Grand Lodge of Instruction at the
Annual Grand Lodge Communication. It is a real honor to win this award as it
exemplifies your dedication to the craft.
Spring is in full bloom. As Mother Nature is shows us new growth of flowers
and trees as well as newborn wildlife, we as masons experience new growth.
Last month at the Annual Grand Lodge Communication, Most Worshipful
Anthony W. Montuori was elected as our new Grand Master. I had the
opportunity to attend the Masters Breakfast where he shared some insight on
his plans for the future of Masonry. One key point he made concerned
meetings. “They should be more than reading minutes and paying bills.”
Sound familiar? Another topic was that of guarding the west gate. We should
be particularly careful not to recommend anyone for membership unless we
are certain they will conform to our rules and guidelines. We won’t lower our
standards for the sake of more members. If we have good and wholesome
instruction, new members will seek us out.
When brothers come to us to learn, we want to make sure our lodge is
attractive and welcoming. Removal of rubbish and making minor repairs and
upgrades to our lodge will make our home new again. Our spring cleaning day
is Saturday, May 16th at 8:30 am. Whether its window washing, painting,
pruning or scrubbing floors, we need you! We’ll be there until 2pm but if
everyone pitches in a little, the work gets finished faster. The Regular meeting
is Monday the 18th. We want our lodge sparkling for the guests who come to
steal the gavel. Remember in masonry we only get out what we put in. I hope
to see you in the lodge soon.
