Masonic Trestleboard

~ November 2017 ~

From the east 

Lodge activity was impressive in October with the annual visitation from our brethren in Canada. I want to be sure to thank Br. Larry Gullet for scheduling the visit and Br. Guy Martineau for hosting the cookout.  The comedy show was a smashing success, along with visiting all the district lodges and the planetarium in Concord, NH.

As you know we have an EA degree on Wednesday Nov 8, 2017 for the candidate we unanimously approved at our last stated meeting.  We will be performing this degree at Lafayette Bible Lodge on the 8th of November in Goffstown as part of the 2nd Masonic District Visitation schedule with RW Br. Robert Porter as the DDGM.

It was nice to see the sidelines full at the last stated meeting along with a few brothers who had not been in a while.  If you need a ride or know somebody that does please let us know and we will make arrangements to assist a worthy brother.  Brotherly Love may be what we do best as Masons, but it takes communication to make sure we enable ourselves to do the best job possible.  I look forward to seeing you all at our District visitation on the 29th of November and our stated meeting this month.

 Charity does not begin at home, it begins at the place of greatest need. 
 Charity should be given because it is the right thing to do, not for thanks, praise or medals.
