Note: Neguemkeag-Vassalboro, has at the present time the 12th Masonic District Traveling Gavel. Lets get it It takes at least 5 (five) Brothers to take possession of it, a number of Lodges are after it so lets hope we can get enough Brethren, it may take more than five.


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. ….2007 Dues Cards are available…. And was due by the 1st of January 2007. I am basically a lazy person and I do not want to be required to send out a lot of correspondence to members regarding past due Dues payments. Begging a Brother to pay his dues, is not pleasant - is time consuming and costly. Please have the courtesy to answer any correspondence that I send so there is no duplication of effort. Thank you to the Brethren who enclose a donation along with their dues. At present there are 3 members without a 2006 or 2007 dues card. You are now two years in arrears. Equals $330. owing the Lodge, Brother if you do not have a 2007 dues card you are delinquent.. For an application to give to someone you feel might like to join the craft, please obtain one from the Secretary or any of the Lodge Officers.

Masonic Thoughts

From the Treasury of Quotes

Look at everything as though you

were seeing it either for the first or last time.

Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.

Betty Smith

There are two ways of Spreading Light -

To be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.


Masonic Bits and Pieces


We were born with our eyes closed

and our mouths open, and we spend

our whole lives trying to reverse that

mistake of Nature


If you don’t want to get tackled,

Don’t carry the Ball.

From the old records:

On Jan. 8th, 1852 a candidate who had been balloted on favorably was allowed to withdraw his petition and get his $3.00 deposit back "for the reason that there has been a Lodge organized in Frankfort since said petition was handed in to this Lodge."

The D.D.G. Master Washburn and the subordinate Grand Officers publicly installed the officers after the brethren had "retired to the Academy and listened to an able address from Brother N. C. Fletcher of Belfast." An interesting note is that a committee was raised to select the appointed officers.
