Note: Messalonskee Lodge in Oakland, has at the present time the 12th Masonic District Traveling Gavel. Lets make the effort to get it at their next Stated meeting the 21st June; 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 payments in early so that I do not have the extra burden of chasing delinquent members. At present there are 12 members with-out their current dues card. Equals $660.00 owing the Lodge, Brother if you do not have a 2006 dues card you are delinquent.. I am basically a lazy person and I do not want to be required send 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.

Masonic Thought

If you re wise with your decisions,

good things are bound to come.

The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing,

because you think you can do only a little.

Be kind to unkind people —

They need it the most..

Masonic Bits and Pieces


No distance of place or lapse of time

Can lessen the friendship of those who are

Thoroughly persuaded of each other’s worth.



Masonic Bits and Pieces.

I would rather persuade a man to go along,

because once he has been persuaded he will stick.

If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared,

and then he is gone
