Worshipful Master Judemayer Medena

June 2022

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE the lodge will be discussing and voting on the scholarship fund at our first meeting in June (06/14/2022)

Brothers, there has been some concern and discussions regarding the status and future of a lodge scholarship fund (former Judd Lewis Quarry scholarship). These discussions have ranged from the possibility of establishing a committee that would be held strictly responsible for administrative duties and all that it includes, to entertaining the possibility of winding it down and the appropriate method of dispersing the remaining $4,800.00 in the account for higher education 
 
By way of background, the scholarship was started by a few brothers of Frederick No. 14 in mid-1980s under the lodge’s social group, the Judd Lewis Quarry. Initially, the scholarship was limited to children of members who resided in Plainville and entering their second year of higher education. The scholarship was later expanded to the children of all members of Frederick No. 14. Following the merger of Fredrick and Franklin, it was expanded to include Plainville High, Bristol Central, and Bristol Eastern. Significantly, the scholarship has not been awarded in eight (8) years due to a lack of applicants, advertising, and no one willing to take on the administrative duties.  
 
There is nothing in the bylaws of the lodge or in the Judd Lewis Quarry bylaws referencing a “scholarship.” However, these funds were raised for the scholarship, and accordingly cannot be transferred to the lodge’s general operating expense fund.  Therefore, to explore our options and avoid any disharmony amongst the craft, I am asking any Brother who seeks to comment on the scholarship fund should attend.

If you are unable to attend, please send your written comments to the lodge secretary so they can be read into the record.   COMMENTS
 
If you have any questions regarding the fund or seek additional information prior to the meeting, kindly direct all inquiries to  the secretary    INFORMATION
