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…. 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 12 6 members with-out their current dues card. Equals $660.00330.00 owing the Lodge, Brother if you do not have a 2006 dues card you have been and 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 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 Thought


If you re wise with your decisions,

good things are bound to come.The only thing that comes to us

without effort is old age.

--Gloria Pitzer–

There are two types of people — those

Who come into a room and say, "Well,

here I am" and those who come in and

say, "Ah there you are."

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.The only thing that ever sat

its way to success was a hen.


Your worst humiliation is only



Masonic Bits and Pieces.


Someone else’s momentary entertainment.

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

----Dwight D EisenhowerKaren Crockett---
