Note; The 12th Masonic District Traveling Gavel. Check the 12th District Web-site Calendar for its location. It takes at least 5 five Brothers to take possession of it, a number of Lodges are after it so it may take more then five of our members.


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 and assessments payments in early so that I do not have the extra burden of chasing delinquent members. At present there are 5 members with-out their current dues card. Brother if you do not have a 2004 dues card you are delinquent.. I am basically a lazy person and I do not want to be required sent out a lot of correspondence to members regarding past due payments. 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.

In a previous Summons, I enclosed a Dues and Assessments Notice, A self addressed envelope for your dues remission. and a Draft of the proposed by-laws.


NEW WEB SITE — One of our Past Masters has set up a Web Site for Unity Lodge. If you have Internet access please take a look and give us your thoughts on the subject. Suggestions for additions are welcomed. http://unitylodge.hutchinsbrothers.com/



Masonic Thoughts

Procrastination is the grave in which opportunity is buried.

A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.

He said, "I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One wolf is the vengeful,

angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one."

The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?"

The grandfather answered, "The one I feed."

Only you can be yourself.

No one else is qualified for the job.

Character is doing what’s right when no bodies looking.


From the old records:

December 2, 1846. "The Brethren agreed to meet every monday evening, at our hall, for lectures and improvement: also whatever other business tending to the good of masonry that may come before them."



Attest: Karl D. Julian, Secretary     Mayo Cookson Jr., Master
