From the South – February 2019

Greetings from the South

Hey Brethren! Hope all of you are having a great start of the New Year! January Stated Meeting was a great success and had a great turn out. I would like to take the time and single out our Junior Steward Mason Washington for the amazing help he offered.

      February is looking to be as amazing as January. My wife and I will be working on a “Tour of Italy” dinner for stated meeting. Stated meeting will be on February 6th at 6:30 PM. Another event to look forward to is our Sweethearts Dinner on February 13th at 6:30 where we take time to show appreciation to the ladies of the lodge and especially the widows. We need to reiterate that we will always be there for them, that because  their husband completed his work and now resides in the celestial lodge above does not mean that they are not family. Come out and show your support!

Franternally,

Greetings from the East,

Brothers and friends be sure to join us for the fun and festivities in February as we take a little break. I apologize as I will be traveling for work but trust that Anaheim Lodge is in the more than capable hands of our Senior and Junior Wardens. I cannot possibly miss the opportunity we have to not only to honor the widows of our Brothers, but also our own sweethearts at the annual Sweethearts Dinner on Wednesday February 13th. This one you won’t want to miss!

This is just one of the programs supported by your annual dues payment to Anaheim Lodge. A portion of your dues is directed to the annual per capita payment we are required to provide the Grand Lodge of California and the remainder goes towards the annual budget of Anaheim Lodge. Each and every member is billed the same and if you feel as though your masonic experience is not being fulfilled, feel free to contact me directly and inform me what would enhance your masonic relationship. I look forward to seeing and talking with each and every one of you at a degree or event in the future.

Fraternal regards,

From the West – February 2019

Greetings Brethren from the West,

We have been quite busy at Anaheim Lodge 207 with degrees. Going into February, we are turning it down just a bit for this month. Stated meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 6th and we hope to see you there. For our brethren, we want to focus on Practice! Practice! Practice! Because like the old saying goes; Practice makes Perfect! I want to encourage our brethren, new and longtime members, to join us in our practice. However, it’s always recommended that our officers attend the practices. It’s always best to know the Due guard and Signs of all degrees for Master Masons or if you are a FC or an EA, its great way to know or learn how to properly give the Due Guard and sign of your respective degree. Practices are not only to make our ritual better, but it can also be used as a kind of Masonic Education. During practices, questions are always asked either about ritual or about the meaning of signs, emblems, etc. Mostly everything we do in the lodge room and everything you see in the lodge room has meaning, so attending our practices and our events are a great way to learn about them. Our practices are always going to be scheduled so visit our website, or check out the calendar in the Trestle Board every month to see when we have practice.

And as always, I want to encourage our Brethren to attend our events (such as the Sweetheart’s Dinner), stated dinners and degrees. Everyone is welcome to attend and remember, only Master Masons can attend all 3 degrees, Fellow Crafts can attend the first and second degrees and Entered Apprentices can attend only the first degree. All brethren, from the youngest Entered Apprentice to Master Masons are able to attend all stated meetings.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Fraternally,

Luciano Leon

Senior Warden
