Worshipful Master’s Message

 

Greetings My Brothers,

 

As I prepare for our June Stated Meeting I can’t help but think that the year will be half over.  We have a great evening planned for June 14th.  It will be family night with a picnic meal of grilled hamburgers and hot dogs.  Be sure to bring your family and enjoy the fellowship of our Masonic members.  We will also be honoring our 50-year members, we will be presenting these brothers with their pins so that their families can participate in this joyous occasion.

I have appointed a committee of experienced brothers to investigate the possibility of increasing our dues.  This is news that no one wants to hear, but it has been 8 years since our last increase and our expenses keep rising.  This is an involved process and will take some time until we get all the approvals processed. It will also require a by-laws change.  Our goal is Hall Association Quarterly Meeting

The Hall Association will have their quarterly Board of Directors meeting at the North Hills Masonic Centre on Wednesday, June 7 at 7:30 PM.to have a balanced budget so that we can operate #716 in a manner that you have been accustomed to.  We owe it to ourselves and to the Masonic Fraternity to protect out investment for generations to come.

At our June meeting we will call off from labor for July and August.  In the month of June, we still have several degrees to conform.

Don’t forget June 14th is family night.  It will not be complete if you are not with us.

 

In Masonic Brotherhood,

 

David O. Whitlinger

Worshipful Master
