From the West – June 2019


We have a busy month of June ahead of us. This month, we have a first degree on June 12, for Mr. Mark A. Bullock, if elected. On June 19, we will be having a second degree for Brother Patrik Eskandari. In the past, I talked about giving our prospects a memorable degree. This is the time for us to make it happen. I want to invite all brethren to come on out and join us for the first and second degrees and let us give them a degree they will never forget.

On Monday June 3, we will be having OSI at Saddleback Laguna Lodge in Lake Forrest. OSI, if you did not know, stands for Officer’s School of Instruction. This is mandatory for ALL officers of the lodge to attend. Officers from different lodges in our district get together and learn about ritual, footwork, rod work, a little bit of history, and of course, we eat! Master Masons that are not officers are always welcome to attend as well, as it is a great learning experience.

Wednesday June 26, we will be having Masonic Education Night along with Candidate Night. We would like to have the Candidates come out and practice their proficiencies with us, we will be more than happy to help you and answer any questions you may have. This will be a great time for our Candidates to learn more about the proficiency and possibly stay for our Masonic Education Night. For our Masonic Education Night, Worshipful Carlos Diez, Past Master of Solomon’s Staircase Lodge #357 will be presenting. I want to invite ALL brethren to attend. We had a Masonic Education Night a few months back, it was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot about the first-degree symbolism that I had no idea. Masonic Education is important to what we do as a fraternity, and it helps to view Freemasonry in a different perspective as it goes beyond what we think the degrees are all about. There is a lot more to learn about degrees, symbols and rituals. Come out, support, and learn something new with us.

On June 29, we will be having a Masonic Service and Celebration of life to honor the passing of our Brother, Mentor, and Past Master Danny Whitherspoon. Everyone loved Danny; his presence always lit the room, and you cannot forget about the amazing lectures he would give. He was always about Masonry and had the knowledge to present at any given time. He has been called to the celestial lodge above and brighten the heavens. Until we meet again my friend. You will be dearly missed.
