~ November 2017 ~

From the east 

Lodge activity was impressive in October with the annual visitation from our brethren in Canada. I want to be sure to thank Br. Larry Gullet for scheduling the visit and Br. Guy Martineau for hosting the cookout.  The comedy show was a smashing success, along with visiting all the district lodges and the planetarium in Concord, NH.

As you know we have an EA degree on Wednesday Nov 8, 2017 for the candidate we unanimously approved at our last stated meeting.  We will be performing this degree at Lafayette Bible Lodge on the 8th of November in Goffstown as part of the 2nd Masonic District Visitation schedule with RW Br. Robert Porter as the DDGM.

It was nice to see the sidelines full at the last stated meeting along with a few brothers who had not been in a while.  If you need a ride or know somebody that does please let us know and we will make arrangements to assist a worthy brother.  Brotherly Love may be what we do best as Masons, but it takes communication to make sure we enable ourselves to do the best job possible.  I look forward to seeing you all at our District visitation on the 29th of November and our stated meeting this month.

 Charity does not begin at home, it begins at the place of greatest need. 
 Charity should be given because it is the right thing to do, not for thanks, praise or medals.

Masonic open House 

Saturday, October 21, 2017

All are welcome!

200A Main Street, Nashua

9am – 3pm

The Nashua-area community is cordially invited to join the Nashua Masonic Bodies at the Masonic Building, 196 Main Street in Downtown Nashua, NH (elevator at 200A Main Street) on Saturday, October 21, 2017 to learn about the history and tenets of Freemasonry and its affiliated bodies.

All New Hampshire Masonic Lodges will be open on October 21, 2017 from 9 AM-3 PM as a part of the Grand Lodge of New Hampshire’s NH Statewide Masonic Open House.

Tours of the building will be conducted and members will be available to answer questions throughout the day.

Members of our appendant and affiliated bodies will also be represented, including Pilgrim Chapter No. 55, Order of the Eastern Star and Nashua Assembly No. 9, International Order of the Rainbow for Girls.

From the East

As a child growing up, my favorite characters on Sesame St were the loveable Bert and Ernie. The one character would always ask the other the one the same question over and over, and after what seemed to be an eternity of the same question being asked and answered with temperance, fortitude and justice the other character ultimately became Awnry ( No longer Ernie).

 Many brothers in our lodge have displayed Brotherly love, Relief and Truth and I want to thank and congratulate them for that display. Collectively I call this character BeRT.  The counterpart to this character is Awnry.  We seem to display both of these characteristics in our lodge. Masonry and life in general.  However, I would like to see BeRT being displayed more often as nobody wants to be around Awnry. 

The next time you see a problem in lodge or in your own life, remember people are seeing you as a Mason, and you may be the only representative they ever see. Remember the person you are dealing with may be experiencing a divorce, death, sickness or loss of a job. I hope on that day you remember you remember your oath to be BeRT and not Awnry.

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.”

  • George Cooper

From the east:

It seems like Summer started just a few short weeks ago, and we are now getting ready to go back to our September stated meeting in just a few short weeks.  The visitation season has already started and with RWDDGM Robert M. Porter at the helm we had a great time.  Thank you RW Brother Joe Beaumont for your services previously at the same position. We greatly appreciate it.
The brothers from John Albro lodge in Nova Scotia, Canada will be here to see us soon for a weekend of entertainment and brotherly fellowship in October.  We will be having a night of entertainment with a comedy show for $20 a person.
Over the summer we initiated two new brothers on their EA degree, and we are glad to have them working with Brother Gullett and Brother Webster as their mentors.
I am a strong believer in family first, so please make sure to take care of those who take care of you !
In Brotherly Love hope to see you at the next stated meeting.

Sincerely & Fraternally

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.

A BROTHER’S HAND

When you’re feeling all downhearted,
And life’s hard to understand,
Say, it’s fine to feel the pressure
Of a Brother’s friendly hand.

Just to know he sympathizes,
Though he doesn’t say a word;
How it starts your courage climbing,
As your heart is touched and stirred.

With an arm across your shoulders,
And a grip you love to find,
How it makes you feel the bounding
Of the hearts of humankind.

It is just a little token
Of an ever growing band,
For there’s faith and hope and courage
In a Brother’s friendly hand!

Brother George B. Staff

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

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.

From the East

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.
