From the East – June 2016

Masters JewelBrethren,

As we enter the month of June, the Lodge has accomplished several milestones for the month of May. For all this I want to thank all the Brothers for their support & dedication to the Lodge and the Craft.

We celebrated Cinco de Mayo in traditional fashion with a dinner of Crafted South of the Border foods which was well attended by Brothers, Guests and several prospective men of our Community. Brother Andrew Bowen and Diane Hall chaired the effort in which they made the festive gathering memorable. Everyone’s appetite was completely “fulfilled.”

For those of you who were not aware why the dinner was served late, Diane had spent the weekend prior to the Lodge night, preparing all the food and it was delivered to the Lodge on Monday, late into the evening. On Wednesday, at 3:00 p.m. she was notified that the refrigerators had gone out at the Lodge on Tuesday and all food that was prepared was discarded. Food had to be prepared from scratch commencing at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, the night of the Lodge meeting. Apologies for dinner not being served timely, due to unfortunate circumstances. Thanks to Kim Read for preparing the rice at the last minute!

After the dinner, the stated meeting was convened and was well attended. Several petitions were read and accepted. All business matters were covered and the Lodge was closed for the evening after all business matters were acted on.

Mr. Johnny K. Nix and Mr. Erick J. Franco received their 1st Degrees and we all welcome each, as newly initiated Brothers into our Lodge. This is an exciting experience for each of the new Brothers and the members of the Lodge. Brethren reach out to welcome each of them to the Lodge and to this Great Fraternity. We look forward to your involvement and participation. Your journey will be one that each of you will find memorable and very thought provoking. Welcome!!

Sr Warden JewelGreetings my Brothers,

Masonry continues to grow and prosper in Anaheim. We are receiving numerous requests to join our Fraternity. Remember that if you are sponsoring a new candidate, be sure that they are somebody that you would want to sit in lodge with. The measure that I use is, “Is this someone I would be comfortable inviting to my home for dinner with my family.” If the answer is yes, I sign on the dotted line.

We have several events coming up. The Past Masters Night, The Great Smoke Off and Blood Drive, are but a few. Also I will be kicking into high gear our charity drive for Pasta and Sauce for the Motel Kids thru Catrina’s Club in Anaheim.

Congratulations to Br. Brandon Cook PM. on his selection to receive the Hiram Award. The selection is definitely one of highest quality and most deserving.

Don’t forget that we need help in the kitchen for Stated Meetings. Br. Andrew Bowen and crew could use some help. Remember “Many hands make short work of any task”.

Many of us attended the French 1st Degree in Glendale and it was well worth the effort to get there. A good time was had by all. If you get the opportunity to attend one in the future, by all means, do it, you will not be disappointed.

Also my brothers, don’t forget Our Youth Groups could use some help and support. They are the future brothers and sisters of our fraternal family. Don’t forget to check in on our brothers that are having health problems, a little brotherly love goes a loooong way.

See you in Lodge.

Fraternally yours,
Robb Morris
Senior Warden

Jr Warden JewelGreetings Brethren from the Station of Beauty,

A gargantuan thank you to all those who made May dinner a success! As you may have heard, there were a few issues with the refrigeration and disappearance of food, but overall I was pleased by the people who stepped up

This month is going to be very busy, and involves not one but two dinners. As always, I look forward to and deeply appreciate the assistance provided in puting these on.

Fraternally,
Andrew Bowen
Junior Warden
