Note: Messalonskee in Oakland has at the present time the 12th Masonic District Traveling Gavel. Lets get our crowd together and go after it! It takes at least 5 (five) Brothers to take possession of it, a number of Lodges are after it so let’s hope Unity Lodge will turn-out in large numbers Five plus.


Brethren as of this date, Dues payments are still Nine hundred Thirty five Dollars behind, that totals Eighteen 18 of our brothers are not current. A notice of dues in the arrears and an Addressed Envelope is included with this SUMMONS, Please respond with your payment Thanks. If? You do not have a 2006 dues card you are in the arrears. From Your Secretary: Please help me keep the records straight by informing me of any change of address, change of status, etc. It also helps if you send your dues payments in early so that I do not have the extra burden of chasing delinquent members. I have sent out a lot of correspondence to members regarding past due payments and to date have had little response. Please have the courtesy to answer any correspondence that I send so there is no duplication of effort. Thank you to the Brethren who enclosed a donation along with their dues. If you need an application to give to someone you feel might like to join the craft, please obtain one from the Secretary or any of the Officers.

Masonic Bits and Pieces

Words of Wisdom

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken

Fan belt and a leaky tire.

Its always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to

Steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.

Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.
