Sept. 2018 Trestle Board

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.
