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. 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 2 members without a 2006 or 2007 and 9 members without a 2007 dues card. Equals $715.00 Brother if you do not have a 2007 dues card you are delinquent..

Seeds of Belief: Attitude is Everything
Your attitude is either the lock on or key to your door of success.
Its not what you are that holds you back, its what you think youre not.
A smile is the light in your window that lets others know there is a caring person inside.
The most important three words you can say to yourself: "Yes I can!"
If you believe you can you probably can.
If you believe you wont .you most assuredly wont.
Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
Masonic Bits and Pieces
Unless you change how you are, you will always have what youve got.
Life is a unique combination of "want to" and "how to,"
and we need to give equal attention to both.
The most important question to ask on the job is not "What am I getting?"
The most important question to ask is "What am I becoming?"
