California masons’ partnership with raising a reader has brought crucial literacy training to nearly 600 classrooms – and we’re not close to done yet!
Last Sunday, October 21, Most Worshipful Brother Stuart A. Wright was installed as grand master of Masons in California. We look forward to a year of growth and prosperity under his leadership, inspired by his theme: “Freemasonry… the difference is you.”
If you’ve been seeking an excuse to see the country, there’s no better time than the present. The lens of Freemasonry offers a fascinating perspective!
The Brethren continued to support our Youth Groups, again your Master, Brothers and families attended Job’s Daughter, Rainbow Girls and DeMolay meetings in April. Please come and support these fine youth organizations.
The Brethren continued to support our Youth Groups, again your Master, several Brothers and families attended Job’s Daughter, Rainbow Girls and De- Molay meetings. We need you there! Thank you to all Consuelo Brothers and Families attending the DeMolay Officer Installation. The installation was well done and interesting.
This $2500 scholarship is being offered to the 2018 graduating seniors from the Escondido Union High School District; Escondido High School, Orange Glen High School, San Pasqual High School, Del Lago Academy, and Valley High School.
My Brothers, thank you for the opportunity to enter your service for 2018. I am both excited at the possibilities and humbled by the magnitude of the responsibilities as Master.
My Brothers, the end times are here! Well, for me as Master of the Lodge, that is… Elections are upon us at this upcoming Stated Meeting on November 16th. Make sure you attend and support my successor, Brother Ross Douglas for Master in 2018, and all the other officers as they advance or are appointed!
When the pressures of recession
Make us concentrate on greed,
Take heed, a Worthy Mason
Cares about another’s needs.
This month I thought I’d share an interesting thing that has happened to me TWICE this year… wherever I go I’m wearing something that identifies me as a Master Mason. Whether it’s a shirt or my usual go-to, a hat, I make it clear that I’m a Mason.
As we approach the “Dark” month of August and begin to close out this year, I humbly look back and reflect on some great candidates and some even greater ritual! The officers line has really answered the call to excellence and I sincerely hope to see more of you in attendance as we finish up the ritual work for the remainder of the year! I am happy to announce that Brother Jim Forster was chosen as our Mason of the Year!
This month I will offer for your contemplation this old poem by Brother Bruce H. Hunt.
