OCTOBER’S PARTY

October gave a party;

The leaves by hundreds came –

The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,

And leaves of every name.

The Sunshine spread a carpet,

And everything was grand,

Miss Weather led the dancing,

Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,

The Oaks in crimson dressed;

The lovely Misses Maple

In scarlet looked their best;

All balanced to their partners,

And gaily fluttered by;

The sight was like a rainbow

New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,

At hide-and-seek they played,

The party closed at sundown,

And everybody stayed.

Professor Wind played louder;

The flew along the ground;

And then the party ended

In jolly “hands around.”

From the East 

Brethren,

Let me start by saying Thank You for all the assistance you have rendered to the lodge in the last year, it is truly appreciated. That being said, we have a large brotherhood here at Rising Sun 39 and in direct correlation a great need.  We need assistance in the following areas:  The Special ladies, turkey drive, the 200th anniversary committee and for the sick and needy in our group. I have been blessed by having a great group of brothers who step up to the plate as needed, but we can always use more assistance as many hands make light work.  If you are willing to help please let me know ASAP. The 200th anniversary of our lodge is rapidly approaching, and in order to plan for it we have started a fundraising initiative the $100 club, which is being directly appropriated to offset the costs of preparing for such an event.  Nobody like to talk about money, but if we just keep sweeping it under the rug we will never be ready for such a gigantic event in our lodge history.  As Master, I am a servant, not a dictator.  The lodge has directed me that they want to celebrate this event, and it cannot be done without some help.  If you want more information about the club please let any line officer know and they will be glad to assist.

Lastly, many of our elderly brothers seem to be in need of rides to lodge or maybe just an ear to listen and laugh with, please make it a point in your daily routine to be part of the solution by spending 5 minutes out of your day to look after a brother in need.

Thank You, and I look forward to seeing you in Lodge.

WM RS39 Ken Ziehm

From the East

The Summer months are now behind us, and we are moving forward with candidates and their degrees.  The Fishing trip was an excellent adventure and was a great recruiting tool for the lodge as we should be seeing a request to join our Masonic lodge from one of the people that went on the trip.  We can thank Br. Martineau for another successful trip where everybody caught a ton of fish and had a lot of brotherly love displayed between multiple lodges.

Now that we are back in the swing of things District visitations are in full swing, and are a great way to go see parts of the degrees being performed around District #2.  RW DDGM Br. Robert M. Porter is from your lodge, and it is important that we support him in all his endeavors.  The format has changed and is very enjoyable, and I always enjoy seeing brothers from the other lodges.

Our Special ladies were taken on the Mt. Washington on Lake Winnepesaukee thank to the efforts of Br. Peter Shulkin.  That being said he could use a hand in assisting the special ladies committee.

The 200th anniversary of our lodge is coming up in the next few years and we are looking for volunteers for the committee, please let me or SW Tim Marotte know if you are interested in helping.

Finally, please help us help you, by letting us know if someone is sick or in distress, so that we can try to make a plan and fulfill our oath of brotherly love.

I look forward to seeing you in Lodge soon.

Let’s Go To Lodge Tonight

My brother, let’s go to Lodge tonight

You haven’t been for years.

Let’s don our Lambskin Apron white

And sit among our peers.

I feel a kind of longing, see,

to climb those creaky stairs

I know it’ll be a thrill for me

to lay aside my cares.

We’ll meet the Tyler at the door

and though he’ll hesitate,

we’ll hear him say just as before,

Come in or you’ll be late.

I’d like to get out on the floor

Come on, let’s get in line

I want to face the East once more

And give the same old sign.

I want to hear the gavel rap

the Craftsmen to attention

and see the Master don his cap

a night without dissention.

So come! Pass up that picture show,

or your wrestling bout or fight

Switch off that TV set! Let’s go!

Let’s go to Lodge tonight.

From the East

First, Thank you to everybody, and more specifically Pilgrim Chapter No. 55, OES Rainbow Girls, Grand Lodge of NH, Past Masters, Brethren all, and my Family. I was a little awed at all the love shown and I hope to serve you well.

We are starting a new chapter, but let us remember that Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth are our foundation and we should be ever mindful in that pursuit. I would ask that in the next year you take 5 minutes out of every day and devote it to these three ideas, and just call up someone in your masonic family and connect with them in the way that only a brother can. The reason I am still here after all these years is that my top and bottom line signers and lodge officers would always call me before an event an invite me as a new mason.

Again Thank You all, See you at the next stated meeting, and if you know of someone in need or distress please let a line office know. If we don’t know, we can’t help!

Fraternally,
Kenneth E. Ziehm II, Worshipful Master
Attest: Brian J. Smith, PM Secretary

The Masonic core principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth

Freemasonry instils in its members a moral and ethical approach to life: it seeks to reinforce thoughtfulness for others, kindness in the community, honesty in business, courtesy in society and fairness in all things. Members are urged to regard the interests of the family as paramount but, importantly, Freemasonry also teaches and practices concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need. Freemasonry has at it’s heart the three core principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.

Brotherly Love. Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and will behave with compassion and understanding to his fellows.

Relief. From earliest times Freemasons have been taught to help those in distress without detriment to their dependents, and to give their support to outside charities.

Truth. Freemasons strive for truth both in their view of themselves and in their dealings with others. Masonry requires high moral standards and its members endeavor to uphold these principles in their public and private lives.

What a great meeting last month with a great meal provided by our Senior Warden, Ken Ziehm and two of our newest Master Masons – Kevin Bailey and Ron Vincent. Thank you to all who helped cook and clean up!

It is always great to see the lodge room full and I want to thank everyone for coming out. From the feedback I received it sounds like everyone thought the programs were extremely beneficial from our SW, Ken Ziehm and RWDDGL Bob Porter presenting responsibilities and expectations of officers and members to RW Brother Gaskill who gave us another truly amazing story on the history of Rising Sun Lodge.

I am asking all members to try to make it to the Open House and our Stated Meeting in October, as I will not be around and our Brother Junior Warden will certainly need assistance. Please come out and support him during my absence.

Remembering September

Whenever September comes around
There’s a difference in the air

It’s hard to fathom what it is
You just somehow know it’s there

It may be days that are cooler
Or the activity of different birds

But there’s an exciting anticipation
That’s difficult to put into words

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas
The upcoming holiday cheer

It may mean the closing of summer
Or the nearing end of another year

No matter what the reason
We have cause to remember September

September – by Hilaire Belloc

Lo! a ripe sheaf of many golden days
Gleaned by the year in autumn’s harvest ways,
With here and there, blood-tinted as an ember,
Some crimson poppy of a late delight
Atoning in its splendor for the flight
Of summer blooms and joys­
This is September.

Summer is upon us and that means great warm weather, family fun, and our last stated meeting before we go dark for our summer break. That means our Hiatus Feast, with RWB Larry Gullett’s famous pulled pork, casual attire, flip-flops, Bermuda shorts and Hawaiian shirts ! Please ensure you invite your family and our special ladies to this great meal and fellowship event – we will have a brief meeting to take care of some business for roughly 30 minutes then retire upstairs to enjoy each other’s company.

Thank you to Iouri for another great meal at our May stated meeting as usual he outdid himself again !

Thank you to those brethren that attended Grand Lodge and also the Nashua Assembly Fine #9 installation of officers! Congratulations to Maddy Going on her retirement as Worthy Advisor having served 7 terms! What a great job she has done revitalizing Rainbow in Nashua. Also, congratulations to the newly installed Worthy Advisor Jackie Desrosiers and her new slate of officers – I am sure we will see great things continuing to come out of Nashua Assembly!

Remember although we go dark, we will still have plenty of opportunity to get together this summer after our Hiatus Feast with a MM on June 22nd, the Nashua Fairytale Festival, the Fishing Trip and the trek up to Nova Scotia for our annual exchange !

If you know of any brother or special lady that needs assistance please let one of our officers know.

ECHOES
by Douglas Malloch

Fine men have walked this way before,
Whatever Lodge your Lodge may be;
Whoever stands before the door,
The sacred arch of Masonry,
Stands where the wise, the great, the good,
In their own time and place have stood.

You are not Brother just with these,
Your friends and neighbors; you are kin
With Masons down the centuries;
This room that now you enter in
Has felt the trod of many feet,
For here all Masonry you meet.

You walk the path the great have trod,
The great in heart, the great in mind,
Who looked through Masonry to God,
And looked through God to all mankind;
Learned more that word or sign or grip,
Learned Man’s and God’s relationship.

To him who sees, who understands,
How mighty Masonry appears!
A Brotherhood of many lands,
A fellowship of many years,
A Brotherhood so great, so vast,
Of all the Craft of all the past.

And so I say a sacred trust
Is yours to share, is yours to keep;
I hear the voice of men of dust,
I hear the step of men asleep;
And down the endless future, too,
Your own shall echo after you.

From the East

April Showers have been scarce but Rising Sun is raining candidates and degree work. We are looking for individuals to learn the emblems for the MM degree history as we used to do in the past. If you are interested please see Larry Gullett or Jon Bibeau.

Congratulations to our 2 newest Master Mason’s Alexander Durden and Costin Barbu. We invite each of our newest Master Mason’s who have been raised in the last year to join us at Grand Lodge – it is the usual custom of the Grand Master to greet the newest members of our great fraternity.

To all – please consider making the venture up to Nova Scotia this July. We are in need of assistance and it would be great to have a wonderful showing in support of the fellowship we have shared for over 10 years with John Albro Lodge and our great friends there.

Finally, as Master and as a Member of Rising Sun, I find it incumbent upon me to challenge each of you to find a way you can assist your lodge. There are many tasks, duties, rituals and fundraising that needs your help. The benefits you and I have experienced in the degree work and fellowship are the direct result of sacrifice of those who sat in our seats over the past 194 years. What a great tradition !

THE LIVING TEMPLE
The Canadian Craftsman – March 1898

Rich was the Temple framed of old,
Of Hermon’s cedars, lined with gold,
By princely architect of Tyre:
And bright the flames of sun and fire,
Built many an hundred years ago,
In Ind or Western Mexico.

By fabrics formed by human hand,
Though they in noblest grandeur, stand
On lofty pillars, rich and rare.
Of burnished gold, can ne’er compare
With living temples, pure and fine,
Built by the Architect Divine.

Let us, who live in latter days,
To God a nobler temple raise,
With cornerstone deep laid in youth.
While knowledge, temperance and truth,
In all their fair proportion bind
That noble temple of the mind.

Let fortitude the basis be
And high resolve the plethory;
The stones shall be of reason’s proof,
Celestial love shall form the roof,
And prudence at the threshold stay
To drive each vagrant guest away.

Within shall seven pillars shine,
The purest product of the mine;
Religion, honor, gratitude,
Nor shall the moon and stars by night
Withhold their kind and needful light,
That your work may be finished here
When the Grand Master shall appear.

Happy Spring ! Even though we are only getting periods of warm days it appears we got off quite easy this year with the snow.

Congratulations to Iouri Starosselski who received the Crystal Cook award for his many outstanding performances in the kitchen in 2015. I would imagine he is in contention for 2016 as well based on his performances thus far. Anyone care to challenge him?? Thank you to Tim Marotte for doing an outstanding job lining up the talent in the kitchen for our stated meetings and coming up with this creative award.

Rising Sun continues to be busy almost every Wednesday with advancing new candidates. Officers please ensure you are working on your next potential stations, as if an officer in front of you is out you need to be prepared to step up.

We have scheduled these degrees and events far enough in advance and have posted them in the Trestleboard, posted them on Facebook and they should be on our website calendar. You should have ample time to schedule appropriately.

I greatly appreciate all the assistance from our membership on the sidelines and our Past Masters who have stepped up when needed.

This is our lodge brethren and it needs each one of us to step up and do something, anything, and to continue to improve so others can enjoy the same that we have ourselves.

If you have a topic of discussion for our stated meetings and would like to present it for discussion please give me a call.

“The secret of concentration is the secret of self-discovery. You reach inside yourself to discover your personal resources, and what it takes to match them to the challenge.”
― Arnold Palmer


 

ARE YOU A TRAVELING MAN?
I am a traveling man.
My journey is never ending.
I travel towards the East,
The source of all light.
The source of all knowledge.

I am a traveling man.
I wander a winding road.
With many twists and turns.
I know not what lies ahead.
I find new truth with every step.

I am a traveling man.
On a path from whose bourn no traveler returns.
The final destination is not the goal.
The goal is the odyssey itself,
And what I learn with every new vista.

I am a traveling man.
It is the only thing I know for sure.
My insatiable curiosity,
And desire for knowledge
Are my ever present companions on this trek.

Traveling.
Traveling.
Traveling.
Never weary
Never ending.
