Brothers, great job on the MM degree last night. We raised two brothers from our lodge and one from Sequin-Level Lodge 140.
The hard work and dedication really paid off. That was remarkable, and for sure we caused a good impression on the new brothers, and also on the visiting brethren. Can’t wait to do it again in the Fall, when we will have it in our lodge. Thanks everyone! I’m really proud of what we achieved !
Attached are the minutes of the last stated communication for you information. The next meeting is
this comming Monday, May 16th. Thre will be a presentation by Carl Anderson of Masionicare. A reminder.
The MM degree has been rescheduled as a dual degree with Sequin Level #140 on Thursday May 19th
at the Sequin Level #140 lodge. Dinner at 6:30 PM Lodge at 7:30 PM.
Don't forget the Easter Bunny breakfast see attached

My Brothers, tonight we will be initiating two candidates into Masonry. The candidates are Ede Santos e Alexander Jones. Alexander is only 18 years old and according to him this has been his goal for when he turned 18. Ede said he had the desire of joining masonry for quite a long time and now the time is here.
and I am just grateful for the privilege to be the one conferring the degree and making them Masons on the Equinox Day. Perfect day for a EA Degree, don't you think ?
Join us tonight and assist me in bringing these two friends into light in masonry.
Dinner is at 6:30pm, lodge at 7:30pm
Hope to see you there!

This is a personal appeal to roll up ypour sleeve and give the gift of life. I would normally lead by example here, but unfortunately I can't. Here's my story:
Back in my college days, I had a couple of good friends that would always go and donate when a blood drive came to campus. They insisted it was so they could go out for beers afterward and get a good buzz on. It wasn't until I was in my corporate work career that I finally got the courage to give it a try after lerarning that father-in-law was a 10 gallon donor. Fast forward a couple decades and I'm at ESPN lying on a cot next to the legendary Bob Ley, pretty cool, we're blood-brothers. Around that time the Red Cross started giving out free dunkin coffee coupons as an additional incentive to the standard snacks and sandwichs you get aftyer donating. I made it up to 8 gallons donated in 2011 and the following year suffered (and mostly recovered from) a major stroke. LIke at leasy 1 other lodge brother I know of, I'm on blood-thinners and no longer able to donate. If you can, I highly encourage it, remember the life you save may be your own, you never know when you'll need a pint (of blood that is!).
1- What is the reason that you keep going to Blue Lodge meetings ?
2- What is the reason you NO longer go to Blue Lodge meetings ?
Thanks in advance for all that participated !!!
