From the East – March 2015

Greetings from the Station of Wisdom,

Masters JewelI’m proud of our lodge and I’m happy to report that we as an officer’s line are making real progress. Both of our Stewards have already confirmed their commitments and successfully delivered their respective charges. I’ve often heard that real leadership begins at the top, but I stand corrected in this regard and salute Brothers Leon and Munoz on their efforts. Even further, I’d like to thank Brother Reidy for his dedication at Tyler, as well as serving as clean up duty in the kitchen on the day of our Sweetheart’s luncheon. Who can forget the excellent meal of chicken wellington prepared by our resident Chef Brother Morris? I also thank the Read’s for supplying the brilliant red table cloths, Brother’s Ramos & Bowen for serving and lastly, but not least, the Porters, who consistently include those little extras like name tags and hugs at the door that we’ve all been accustomed.

From the West – March 2015

Greetings Brethren from the Station of Strength,

Sr Warden JewelI cannot believe that it is March already as it feels like we were just installed last week. We are having so much fun at the lodge conferring degrees and planning the events for this year with our Master making it so easy and smooth. We just hosted our Sweetheart’s celebration and had a good time seeing so many ladies at our lodge and learning that they are doing well. It was nice to see Brother Tom Horngren and his lady doing well. I spoke to Worshipful Chuck Ogden and he was in a good spirits and going to his doctor’s visits. This moth we had the officers of Newport Mesa Lodge visit us for a 3rd degree. Thank you my brothers for coming to our lodge.

This month is also the Orange County reception for the Grandmaster held at the De Molay Center on Sunday, March 8th at high twelve and I’m happy to report that our master will have the honor to escort the Grandmaster and his lady into the reception hall and dine with him at the head table. I kindly ask of all of our members to attend to support the Grandmaster and our Master for having this distinction. We will also need help setting the tables and cleaning the kitchen the night before. I want to congratulate Brother Garcia for his 3th degree and our new and youngest initiated Brother Saady Qazi.

From the South – March 2015

Greetings Brethren from the Station of Beauty,

Jr Warden Jewel“Top of the Morning to You!” Tis’ a grand time we have when we get together. Of course, Corn Beef and Cabbage is on the menu for stated meeting, with all the trimmings. Get your appetite sharpened. We have held several Degrees so far this year, and I am sure it is a good omen of things to come for our Lodge. The Sweetheart’s Luncheon appeared to be a big hit. Thanks to Bros Hugo, Andrew, Matt R. and all who helped to make it a success.

Our lodge is well on its way to becoming a Lodge to be reckoned with in our district. Membership is growing, and we are getting stronger in ritual. Look out here we come. I am looking forward to the Masters and Wardens Retreat coming up. I plan on learning a heap of good things to help my chair and our Lodge.

Robb Morris

Junior Warden
