Worshipful Master’s Message


            What a wonderful stated meeting we had in March.  We received our DDGM for his official visit.  We honored our 60, 50 and 25 year members, and held a ballot for a new member.  The evening was topped off by great food prepared by Jan.  My thanks go out to Norm W. Voegler, III, who conducted a great meeting in my absence. 

            Our seat naming plaques are off to a good start, as we have received our first 5 orders.  We hope that this will be a successful fund-raiser for our lodge.


            The Masonic year is progressing in fine form, we will have several candidates to confer degrees on before we call off from labor for the summer.  We will be visited by Muskoka Lodge #360 from Canada on April 25th, during their visit we will confer a Master Mason’s Degree.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 PM.  Plans are being made to have our annual family picnic and fish fry.


            Our calendar and agenda is full.  We need you to make our plans complete.  Hope to see everyone in lodge.


In Brotherly Love,

David O. Whitlinger
