From the East – April 2019

Greeting Brethren,

I can’t believe that April is already here! The officers of Anaheim Lodge #207 are working tirelessly on creating the remaining calendar for 2019 and working hard to prepare for their next steps in leadership at Anaheim.

Brotherly love is one of the principle tenets of Masonry and on this principle men from every country, sect, and opinion are united! It’s ok that we may not agree on politics, religion, and the numerous other topics that are discussed and shared on social media every day but please remember we are brothers of a fraternity that treat each other with respect and civility. It has become all too common for individuals on social media to gang up on people and endlessly badger them for having a differing opinion. This will not change their mind or their vote but will surely end that friendship. I ask all of you, don’t let this be you, make a difference and show everyone how Masons should act. Be the example of the person they wish they were! Be a MASON!

Remember that April is Public Schools month! Participate in a public education program at one of the area lodges or just get involved or volunteer at your own child’s school. Anaheim Lodge will be getting our public schools program started once again with a fund raiser pancake breakfast scheduled on Saturday August 17 with the proceeds to be directed to the Raising a Reader program of the California Masonic Foundation.

Fraternal regards,

Kevin Stibich, Worshipful Master

From the West – April 2019

Greetings Brethren from the West,

It’s spring time! This means a lot of things; the beginning of Baseball season, the weather changes (a little), flowers bloom, BBQ grills fire up, and the little snow we got this year begins to melt away. But no matter what season we are in, it’s always Masonic season, a season to do great things for ourselves, our families and our community.

During early spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt relative to the Sun, and the length of daylight rapidly increases. The Hemisphere begins to warm up significantly, causing new plants to grow, this is known as “Spring Forth”, giving the season its name. Spring also brings us holidays such as Easter, Labor Day and May Day. The worst part of spring for many people is that it’s also knows as allergy season.

Brethren, the reason why I’m bringing up spring is this; as the seasons change throughout the year, we have to ever remember that we too change, for the better in many cases; from improving in ritual as an officer to seeing life in a whole new perspective as a Mason. As our saying goes, Freemasonry makes good men better.

Thank you for reading.

Fraternally,

Luciano Leon

Senior Warden
