Special Notice Masonic Experience – Traveling

Brethren – This past year on our trip back from Nova Scotia on Rt 9 we, (Dennis Webster, Roger Gaskill, Paul Bielawski and myself) passed a pickup truck with a Masonic Emblem in the back window and as normal exchanged Masonic Greetings with the Driver at about 50 mph.  About 5 miles down the road we suffered an unfortunate blow out of my rear tire and proceeded to pull to the side and began the process of changing the tire.  It was at that time the same truck pulled over in front of us and a Mason in true form jumped out of the vehicle and said, your in my town move aside and he jumped right in and helped to jack up the car and change the tire with the spare.  We had a great conversation about our trip to Nova Scotia and his lodge in East Machias, ME; Warren Lodge #2 which he sat in the West as current Senior Warden.  After hearing of our traveling adventure, he invited us to his installation which I agreeably said, we have been known to travel and would endeavor to make it up if he was elected and he should let me know as soon as he is.
In true form, he did on November 21st we exchanged a series of texts.  With that said, in honor of his true Masonic spirit several of us will be traveling up to East Machias, ME for Erik Guptill’s installation as Master of his Lodge.  Currently, about 7-8 from Rising Sun have expressed interest and also we notified John Albro Lodge of Nova Scotia and seeing it is the mid-way point between us it sounds like 4-5 will be attending from there.
What a way to experience the true masonic spirit !  We are known as travelers and in that we will embark on our trip Saturday morning of January 12th for Brother Guptill’s installation.  We are planning on staying the night as well and heading back first thing Sunday Morning.
If you have interest in attending please let me know asap so we can make the appropriate arrangements with the lodge and the hotel.

Time: Dinner 4:00pm
