The holiday season is upon us and it is at this time of year we can look back on a year well spent and the year ahead of us. I ask each of you to reflect on your Masonic experiences over this last year. We have been a productive lodge and been happily busy. I hope that as each of you looks forward to the year ahead you look to help continue that work within the lodge. Each and every member of this lodge is an important piece of a large puzzle and without the members, officers, and Past Masters of our lodge we would not succeed as we have. Thank you for everything that you have done this year and will do in the future.

At this time, we also look to those we have promised to assist – those special ladies that are as much a part of our Masonic family as our brothers. A call to action went out at November’s stated meeting and I need help from you to reach out to our special ladies. Offer your assistance to them during this time of year so that they and the world see how Masons love one another through the fulfillment of that most important promise we made to each and every brother. Please reach out to me or any of the officers if you wish to help with this initiative and watch for new plans for our special ladies’ program in the next year. Those brothers who no longer toil in

the quarry rely on us to fulfill our obligations and look to those that they left behind.

Thank you again, Brethren, for your support this last year. Enjoy the holidays and please join us for our important Stated Meeting in December.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Tim Marotte W.M.

Of all the times of year, in my mind this month is the most meaningful. Surrounded by family, Brethren, and friends, we renew our faith and count our blessings. Regardless of the religion, race, or country from which we are borne, the Holiday season is a time of joining hands, thinking of others, and embracing our common heritage as children of one almighty god and inhabitants of the same planet. I learned this from my Dad, who was deprived of his Father at the age of eight. Grandfather was going about his work day just like any other, when he suffered a heart attack and was summoned to join the Great Architect of the Universe.

It was during the 1930s, and there was hardship everywhere. It was a time when food was scarce, war was approaching. My Grandmother, now a

widow with a young son (an orphan in those days) made the most difficult decision for a mother – she appealed to her Masonic family at Grandfather’s Lodge and her Eastern Star. Her prayers were answered when they arranged for my Dad to attend Girard College in Philadelphia – 200 miles away by rail. On a cold December morning, my father, 8 years old, was sent by train alone, and he was not to see his mother for 6 months, as was the school policy for new students.

The pain of that separation had a profound effect on my Father. This was most evident around Christmas time. Family was his joy, and he demonstrated it in every way imaginable for a man of his means. There was always one more friend to visit, one more gift to buy, one more trip to see the Great Wanamaker Organ, one more chance for my brother and I to tell Santa what we wanted. One more chance to give his family the Christmas he never had.

Those were simpler times, and I was fortunate to have had such an experience to emulate as I grew older. The world today is far more complex. Many things lay claim to our time, leaving precious little for thought and reflection. However, every year I take the time to pour a dram, light the tree, and contemplate where I have been,

and where I am going. It is always time well spent – my annual course correction.

My message this month is to prioritize some time to consider the many blessings that surround us – family, friends, Brethren, comforts of home, and the many freedoms we enjoy. Share those with every person who might not be so fortunate. Hold your families close, and tell them you love them. Enjoy the mystery of human Faith, the anticipation of Hope, and the warmth of Charity.

Fraternal blessings to everyone!

Brother Denehy has asked the Lodge for assistance with helping the organization of End Hunger for 68 hours. This organizations mission is to see that children do not go hungry when not in school. They typically pack 300 backpacks and send them home with the kids every weekend. Well Brethren, the Christmas school shutdown is about to occur, and we have been asked to assist in packing 300 backpacks with enough food to last through the holiday season. Brethren this is an awesome way to give back to the community.

We are set for December 16th at their location (noted below). We need four or five volunteers to meet at Aldi on Amherst street at 5 p.m. We will load up the food and take to their location, we should have everything ready for the full cadre of volunteers to be at 17 Airport Road (near Law logistics) off of Amherst Street by 630. So that is when those folks should show up. We need about 50 people. We should be done no later than 7:45 p.m. The teachers who distribute the food will show up between 7:15 and 7:45 to pick up their bags. We load them right into the cars. We might need to do a little clean up, like break down boxes etc, but we only need a few people to do that.

We will be reaching out to our Sisters and Brothers within the Masonic community to assist.

From the East

As you may have noticed by the lodge schedule, we have quite a bit of activity coming up to close out the year. It brings me great joy to see new brothers being initiated into our fraternity and to see our brothers progressing through their degrees successfully and the support from brothers on the sideline. Among the many activities we have scheduled for our lodge in November one of our most important fundraising and community service activities is coming up our annual turkey drive. The work we do in the lodge to make new Masons and deliver outstanding ritual is important, but the work we do outside of the lodge to enrich our communities is one of the greatest expressions of the tenets of our fraternity so please consider those in need as we move forward into the holiday season.

Our Lodge will be busy in the next month and a half and I encourage all brothers to participate as liberally as they can, a new brother’s initiation or raising is a once in a lifetime experience and that event is only enhanced by seeing the sidelines full. Please make every effort to attend as many of these important events as you can because your effort will create stronger bonds between the members of this Lodge.

Sincerely and Fraternally, Tim Marotte W.M.

The variety of scenes that Fall brings to the discerning eye is truly striking. As I write this, my backyard woods are illuminated by a bright sun and a golden rain of leaves. Although I personally dread winter’s cold and snow removal, I am taken by the beautiful gift of Fall, which is an acceptable trade-off. I now understand why my Father – and Brother – was so insistent that we travel yearly from New Jersey to New England. I never expected that I would move here permanently, but am now glad that I did. We just held the Masonic Open House and I think I can speak for everyone who participated that it was an interesting experience. We have done this for several years now, and I have noticed that the questions from visitors are becoming more informed. Perhaps this is a result of the media generally promoting our Fraternity in ways that naturally prompt people to do their research? In past Open Houses I fielded questions around esoteric fiction, alchemy, the “New World Order”, and hidden Templar treasure. The questions now revolve around our moral goals, compatibility with various religions, history, and our impact within the community. This is an important distinction. It demonstrates that the Fraternity is of interest to

thinking visitors, who are looking to participate in something practical, larger and more important than themselves. I came away from that day exhausted, reflective, and pleased. On a more practical note, one of the visitors was a descendant of one of Rising Sun’s founding officers. Melissa Lund is descended from John Lund, a Grantee of our original June 13, 1822 dispensation from the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire. She was in the process of cleaning out stored items, and brought to the Lodge a copy of the Rising Sun Centennial book published in 1922. Her comment was that this was an item that she knew we would value, and that this was its home. I was moved and thankful for her thoughtfulness. This gift will be placed in the second-floor library as a reference for anyone with an interest. Please do not remove it from the Library, but leave it there for others to read. In particular, pages 54-55 have what amounts to a direct charge from the Brethren of 1922 to those of 2022. I hope you will take their charge to heart as I have. It is a powerful message from our Brethren Past, traveling across the generations! I have also uploaded a pdf copy of the book to the Rising Sun #39 Facebook page should you like to download a personal copy.

My Brothers, enjoy the Fall colors, support each other, the Craft, and count your blessings!

Rich Johnston, PM, Senior Warden From the South

Earlier this month we held an impromptu Brotherhood night at Boston Billiards. We had a wonderful time just celebrating being brothers, without concerning ourselves with floor work, remembering our lines or signs. It was refreshing to just relax and enjoy being in each other’s company without obligation or requirements to do so. It was also a great opportunity to welcome newly made Masons as well as a few candidates interested in learning more about our brotherhood. We spend hours and hours and hours rehearsing and preparing ourselves to pass along light to others in our fraternity, but this event reminded me that we can spend too much time looking down at the position of our feet, and not looking up at the men in front of us. The purpose of Masonry is to take a good man and make him better. That’s not just accomplished only in the lodge room, it’s done in the kitchen, the dining room, in the local tavern, bowling alley and pool hall.

I’ve been a Mason nine years this month and have never been more excited about the future for Rising Sun Lodge. This is OUR lodge brothers, it’s up to us whether we merely survive or thrive and prosper. We have SEVEN new candidates or brothers looking forward to receiving their degrees over the next few months. While we have a lot of work ahead of us, and there is little question in my mind that they will receive good degrees. The question then becomes what next? After the degree is given, more light shared, and we remove our aprons, will we be a Lodge newly made Masons will feel a part of? Will we be a Lodge where they will be welcome and want to return and where they want to grow as men?

I’m proud of the Lodge, how we have grown and who we are as Masons, but to quote a famous coach we need to be sure that we are good in “all three phases of the game”. In this case not just attracting new members, and delivering solid ritual, but being a Lodge where brothers feel welcome, included and a part of something bigger than themselves.

It has been a busy and action-packed weekend of Masonry in Nashua and I thank every one of you who came out to support our exchange with John Albro and participated in any of this weekend’s events. This weekend started off with a fantastic Ladies at the Table, continued into an exceptional degree to raise 3 new Master Masons and ended with fellowship of the highest order at RW Bro. Gullett’s home. We were joined in Rising Sun by brothers from 8 different jurisdictions, including India and Germany, and we were able to witness ritual and degree performance of the highest caliber from our brothers to the North. I have not always had the opportunity to get time off from work or my other commitments to participate as I should have in past exchanges and my brothers, I will not make that mistake again! What I imagine most of us experienced this weekend is that Masonry that we always talk about, the brotherhood beyond the walls of the lodge where we get to experience the fraternity to its fullest potential.

The important thing to understand about this weekend’s event is that it does not require a busload of brothers driving across international borders. While our exchange with John Albro has built unbreakable bonds between our two lodges there are lodges within our district and our own state that we

should be seeing more often and we shouldn’t need the excuse of the exchange to pursue that fellowship that we experienced this evening. If anything, the overwhelming success of our Masonic exchange with John Albro should impress upon you the strength of our bond and you should experience that bond as often as possible by visiting with our brothers in this district. Visitation season is upon us, take advantage brethren.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Tim Marotte W.M.

From the West Richard L. Johnston PM SW

As I write this, we are spinning up our September Lodge activities. The summer ends in only a few weeks and now we are looking forward to an exceptional and busy Fall schedule that the Worshipful has planned. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again at Lodge – not so much to the approach of Winter! The Trowel is a publication of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. Recently there was an article discussing ‘Internet etiquette’. We are so connected electronically these days it’s hard to find a family that doesn’t participate on the Internet through Facebook, Instagram, instant messaging, emails and Snap. All of these means of communication are new commodities within the past 30

years. As it is with all things new, people adopt and learn how to use them in different ways. Setting aside the technical issues, one cultural challenge is how people conduct themselves when using these media. It is easy for a person to hide behind an electronic screen. There is no eye-to-eye contact, it’s difficult to convey or read feelings, and our self-control mechanisms are blunted. There are good reasons why most companies have social media rules of conduct, among them the specter of legal liability, privacy concerns, and damage to their brand. As Masons, we must also be concerned. Our ‘brand’ is one of high moral character and self-improvement. Because there is essentially no privacy, each Mason owes it to himself and the Fraternity to ensure that what is posted on the internet conveys the best image of their character. None of us are angels (yet), and we have all had times where we have acted out of impulse or anger. But there is a line beyond which many posts cross into questionable territory, and this line is constantly being pushed further. I urge everyone who is a Mason, to listen to the monitor within, temper your on-line conversations, and promote the type of a strong moral man that represents our Craft favorably. I also urge us to self-police each other by whispering good counsel into a Brother’s ear when we see poor conduct on-line. Remember, friends, family, and non-Masons all know that you have it in yourself to improve, and to strive to be an exemplary Freemason at all times!

From the South: John C. Woodrow JW

When I first visited Rising Sun Lodge a brother who was showing me around said that the difference between Masons and other organizations was that was Masons kept their word. That struck me as being something important; simple and profound. The purpose of Masonry is to take a good man and make him better to strive to take a rough ashlar and make it true, square and perfect. It’s the foundation of our Lodge and I would argue a foundation of Free Masons expressed in our oaths and obligations. Are you a man who gives and keeps your word? Are you doing your part? On my way to Lodge this past Wednesday it dawned on me that I had not confirmed, I had not followed up with the brothers who said they would cook at our Stated Communication. My mind was racing as I drove into Nashua, thinking what if no one is there, what back up plan do I have? But my worry was wasted energy and as I got off the elevator on the fourth floor I smelled a delicious meal being prepared and two brothers who promised months before

to cook in the kitchen putting the final touches on our evening dinner. We have to all be accountable to each other as brothers and I am delighted to see this more and more in our Lodge, brothers showing up where they said they would be, when they said they would be there, fully prepared and ready to go, as well as additional brothers showing up just to help out in case they were needed. We can do better but we are making progress. Our Lodge openings and ritual is being performed at a higher level by brothers keeping their commitments to knowing their ritual and helping to set the standard for others. I see new men, potential brothers showing up for dinner, and to find out more about our Lodge and the activities we have are becoming better attended. And yet, we have more work to do as too much of the burden is still shared by too few brothers. We forget sometimes that it’s not about the task itself, not about picking up trash, setting up tables, doing dishes, cooking or cleaning- it’s about the camaraderie, the brotherhood and the shared experience of being part of something bigger than ourselves, an organization that strives to take good men and make them better. As you were told when you first asked about becoming a Mason, you get out of it what you put into it. To get the full benefit of being a

Mason you have to show up, participate, be accountable, make a contribution, and do your part, whatever that means for you. I invite you to join us if you haven’t been to Lodge or a Lodge event in a while-you’ll meet some honorable l brothers, doing good work, who share the same values and are striving to become better men.

The following pictures are from our Ladies of the Table held during our exchange with John Albro Lodge # 122 from Nova Scotia. She said yes.
