Masonic Trestleboard

~ November 2018

From the East


In the troubled world we live in today it is very easy to forget about all the good things we have in our lives. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, let’s all take a moment to reflect upon the numerous blessings bestowed upon us by our Divine Creator. With Monday November 11 being Veteran’s Day, we should also reflect upon the many sacrifices made by the brave men and women of our armed services. It is their precious blood that allows us to live in our great country, and enjoy the blessings of freedom and liberty, which it can be all too easy to take for granted.

We will be continuing our annual tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving at the Lodge on Thursday Nov 22 at 2:00 pm in the dining hall. It will be a magnificent turkey dinner with all the fixings. There is no charge and everyone is welcome. To ensure we will have enough food, please make reservations with RW Brother Larry Gullett. His e-mail is You can also contact any lodge officer and they will pass along the word.

One final word Brethren; please remember to keep RW Brother Joe Beaumont in your thoughts and prayers as he is facing some current health issues. Let’s all hope and pray for a speedy recovery.

 Charity should be given because it is the right thing to do, not for thanks, praise or medals.

In last month’s Trestleboard we announced the establishment of the $100 Club. This is a fund set aside to help with the costs of celebrating the 200th Anniversary of the founding of our Lodge !! That is quite an achievement, and one we can all be very proud of. For a donation of $100 you not only get to help the Lodge with this celebration, but you will get your name on a commemorative plaque to be displayed in the anteroom. You do not have to pay this all at once, but can do so in installments. There are further details and payment options available on our website:
