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 20th September; 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. … 2006 Dues Cards are available…. I am basically a lazy person and I do not want to be required to sent out 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 Thoughts

Everyone has a photographic memory, but

Some of us haven’t figured out how to load

The film.

They say that age is all in your mind.

The trick is keeping it from creeping

down into your body.

--Katharine Hepburn--



Masonic Bits and Pieces


I like deadlines, especially the

Whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a

Blank sheet of paper until drops of blood

Form on your forehead.
