From the East – March 2019

Greetings Brethren,

Are you inspired by selfless acts of kindness from those that seek no recognition? Are you motivated by having fun and being around people that have the same values as you? Are you tired of all the politics you find in other clubs and fraternities? Well come on out and enjoy an evening with us! We have many opportunities for you to enhance your Freemasonry experience at Anaheim.

Starting with our Stated Meeting and a special dinner to celebrate the month of March. Everyone is invited to wear that special shirt, sport coat, or pair of slacks that brings out your “green spirit inside”! We will also be celebrating 50 years of masonry with Brother Warren Levy, as he will be presented his Golden Veteran Award on March 27. There will be a dinner at 6:30 for him and the ceremony will follow at 7:30. Come out and join us to celebrate this outstanding milestone in Masonry!

March 13 at 7:00 pm is a first degree for our Brother and Marshall Asad Qazi’s 3rd son to join the ranks of our ancient and honorable fraternity. We are all excited about him beginning his masonic journey here in Anaheim and look forward to everyone that can make it for this memorable evening with our brother and his son.

My last bit of news to report on for this month is, the officers of Anaheim Lodge have been meeting and coming up with some wonderful ideas for new fun events. If you have any ideas for fun times you think we may be missing out on, give me a call and let’s talk about it. I look forward to hearing about your ideas and seeing YOU at lodge soon!

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Kevin Stibich

From the West – March 2019

Greetings Brethren from the West,

Communication is a key tool to any successful team when used properly and effectively. Communication has an important role in everyday life; at home, at work, in a relationship, a gathering, sports, I can go on and on. Anything you can think of, there needs to be some kind of communication. Brethren, I want to bring this up for a few reasons; one, we have been tirelessly trying to put out the Trestle Board which is our best means for communication to all of our brethren. If you are not receiving the Trestle Board or know of someone that is not either by mail or email, please do not hesitate to reach out to me and I will make sure you get added to the distribution. Two, our communications may not only come from the Trestle Board, but it could be a text, email, or phone call. Sometimes these communications are sent merely as a reminder or an update and no response is required. Please try to remember when a question or inquiry has been sent to respond in a timely manner. Communication is a vital part of having a successful lodge. Communication via email is probably our best and most effective tool, and text is best used for individuals to ask a question or get clarification back and forth between two parties. Group texts are not recommended and tend to go on far too long with no resolution.

Let’s all continue to do our part in raising the bar when it comes to communication, as we strive to make Anaheim Lodge #207 the best choice for masonic friendship and brotherly relationships! 

Thanks for reading.

Fraternally,

Luciano Leon
