June Message from the East
June 2, 2015
We had our regular stated meeting on Tuesday June 2, 2015 and it was very well attended. Everyone enjoyed a fantastic Spaghetti dinner with frozen Sherbet for dessert. A big thank you to WBro Danny who prepared the meal. We had plenty to go around and I believe everyone enjoyed this meal.
Another great meeting, Thank you to all the brothers that attended, and a particular thanks to the officers, everyone did a great job and we continue to improve. I am trying to keep the regular meetings light but be respectful to the craft. REMINDER…Get in touch with a brother you know who has not been in the lodge lately and get them to come back. Sometimes we just need to let our lost brothers feel wanted.
After our meal the craft was busy setting the work:
June 16---Dark Night
June 23--- Dark Night (Practice Night)
June 30--- Fellowcraft Degree (proposed)
The Building committee will be meeting this month with a ne GC (hopefully) and we can get this project going. Project will not begin until after annual BBQ on June 27th, 2015
The Lodge will hold Fish fry in August to help raise money to offset some of the expense associated with our kitchen project. Stay tuned for more information. Your help will be appreciated.
***SELL,SELL, SELL***The date has been set for our annual BBQ…It is June 27th, 2015. Tickets have been mailed to all members. so be planning to buy and /or sell tickets. We need a lot of volunteers to make this happen, so please set time aside on your schedule to come down to the Lodge to help!

Now, let us pray for our Sick and Distressed and keep these brothers and family members in you daily thoughts…We offer this prayer:
Think, o God, of our friends and brothers who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard. Comfort him upon his sickbed, and ease his suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will. We therefore pray that You bless our friend’s and brothers with Your loving care, renew his strength, and heal what ails him in Your loving name. Thank You Lord for your many blessings and place your healing hand on those we name here and others in our hearts.
