Congrats Bro. Mendiola – Father of TWINS!

Mendiola TwinsBrethren, stretch forth your wallets and assist me in welcoming home Brother Mendiola’s twin baby boys. They were born on Sunday, October 5th and are doing well at home. Brother Charles is registered at Target and you can find his registry by either searching his name or going to:



California masons are working hard to support our veterans. Brother Mike Selix is a committee member and is doing a yeomen’s job coordinating and serving meals on major holidays to vets at the hospital and recovery center. They have been very well received by those vets yet the need is still great.

Many have willingly volunteered to serve and to protect our freedom and way of life. By doing this they have put themselves in harm’s way and many have returned physically and sometimes mentally injured and the pain is real yet we have received the benefits of their contribution.

There is an immediate need for funds to put these meal programs together. Much is donated but there are still major expenses and now you can help. A donation jar will be available at our stated meetings for individual voluntary contributions and we can make our gratitude known by dropping a contribution in the bucket as we check in. Won’t you help by contributing to help make this program even more meaningful for those brave souls who have given so much?

~Brother John Elwell

Masters JewelGreetings Brethren from the Station of Wisdom,

It is with a lot of Civility that I thank those who have been at my side for the last year. We have had a few bumps in the road but the lodge has been able to go slowly over those bumps and keep on the road and not hit any trees. I wish to thank my Lady Jennifer for all her assistance this year, and also Agnes Porter for her help with the Stated Meeting Activities, Thank you to Brother John Porter for being at most of the Stated Meetings with her to collect the Dinner donations, Worshipful Merritt Read for always reminding me what is supposed to take place and when, Brother Brandon Cook and Brother Rob Morris for being very supportive in most everything I wanted to accomplish this year, including getting the web page back up and running properly. To Worshipful Phil Collins, what can I say to you for putting our Trestle Board together every month and helping me get it out even when you were in the hospital. Read the rest of this entry »
