From the East
Your Lodge continues to be very busy as last month we had the privilege of welcoming our youngest Entered Apprentice.
We also held our Ladies at the Table event last Saturday. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was very well attended, and everyone had a great time. If you left hungry it was your own fault! Special thanks to everyone who helped to make this a very successful event – the cooking and serving Crew from Benevolent Lodge and other Lodges, the officers of Rising Sun, RW Larry Gullet, and of course, the wonderful women in our lives!
We will be visiting our brothers at John Albro Lodge this month. We will be leaving on May 24, and returning on May 27. We have a good sized contingent who will be traveling to the Great White North. If you are interested in joining us, it is probably not too late. You can contact myself, any Lodge officer, or RW Brother Larry Gullett for the details.
Thanks go out to everyone who helps to make things happen in our Lodge. There are many ways you can participate. Just ask myself or any of the other officers. We certainly need brothers on the sidelines, especially when we are initiating a new candidate. Remember without you my brother, there would be no Lodge. Hope to see you in YOUR LODGE soon.
Kenneth E. Ziehm II, W.M.
A MASON’S WIFE
From active Masons, resolute,
Our wives and families we salute;
We surely know the price you pay,
Who sit alone while we’re away.
No high degrees on you conferred,
In Lodge, your name is seldom heard;
You serve our cause though out of sight,
While sitting home alone tonight.
Masonic papers list our names,
Awards are given, fit to frame;
But yours is absent…you who strive,
To keep our fortitude alive.
You’re part of every helpful deed,
On your encouragement we feed;
Without your blessings, how could we,
Continue acts of charity?
And so, this poem, we dedicate,
To every Master Mason’s mate;
And offer our undying love,
Rewards await in Heaven above.
