From the EastI

I certainly hope everyone had a great summer as it nears its end. The lodge has been busy since our Hiatus Feast in June with an EA Degree for two new brothers. Welcome Everett Law and Mark Edgett. The lodge has participated in many fun community events this summer with our 6th year at the Nashua Fairytale Festival, our Nashua Masonic Family BBQ at the Gullett’s, fundraising for Veterans Count with a fun event at the Nashua Silver Knights, and also our Annual Deep Sea Fishing Trip.

Thank you to Tim Marotte JW, for arranging the family BBQ, Paul Bielawski JS, and Jon Bibeau JD, for orchestrating the Nashua Fairytale Festival, Ed Waible and Paul Bielawski for your help and ideas for the Nashua Silver Knights, Brian Anderson for your assistance at with the Silver Knights evening, Peter Shulkin and John Woodrow for arranging the Special Ladies Brunch Cruise in combination with another lodge event, and to the many brethren that came out to help, support and attend all these events !

Special Thanks to Roger Pellerin, Peter Shulkin, Steve Trachtenberg, Tref Sage, Ed Waible, Brian Smith, Larry Gullett, and all the others that came to a brother in need who needed some moving done.

We have a busy fall season coming up with our Rusty Nail night, which we will also be honoring our Past Masters at the dinner and observing the 14th anniversary of the tragic day of September 11th. We also have our visitation season starting in September.

I am very proud of our lodge, our officers and our members that continue to help our family thrive. We as officers are here to server our lodge and its members not the other way around. Our efforts today will allow Rising Sun to prosper far after we are gone.
