From the EastI

What a great September of events with our Rusty Nail and Past Masters Night, Salvation Army Applefest and our Stated Meeting.

It was great to see all the help we had at the Applefest and what a great time our brothers and significant others had with even a few of the kids helping out. Thank you to all that came out to support our lodge helping in the community. The Rusty Nail Degree was also a success. We had 5 brothers who hadn’t been to lodge in a while and were very appreciative of us hosting this event as a refresher. Since then we have seen a few of them back and I have been in communication with a couple others. Freemasonry is like a nice suit, maybe a little dusty when you haven’t worn it in a while, but still as comfortable when you put it on.

Thank you to all our past masters that continue to support our lodge and be as active as they are with all of the events they support, their advice and the things they do in the background that no one knows about.

We have our visitation schedule in full swing now. Please check out the dates and see if you can come out and travel with Rising Sun to support our District and its Officers ! What great fellowship we share and also receiving more light with illustrations and education on the Fellowcraft degree. All Master Masons and Fellowcrafts are encouraged to attend.

Last but certainly not least, we will be co-hosting the LOI on October 2nd. Please try to come out and show our support in full force for our DDGL and DDGM as well as our Grand Lodge – they have gone through tremendous effort to make these happen.

By Bro. Douglas Malloch

Men build a Road of Masonry
Across the hills and dales;
Unite the prairie and the sea,
The mountains and the vales
They cross the chasm, bridge the stream
They point to where the turrets gleam,
and many men for many a day
Who seek the heights shall find the way

Men build a Road of Masonry
But not for self they build
With footsteps of humility
The hearts of men are thrilled.
This music makes their labors sweet;
The endless tramp of other feet
The thought that men shall travel thus
An easier road because of us.

We build the Road of Masonry
With other men in mind;
We do not build for you and me,
We build for all mankind.
We build a road, remember, men
Build not for Now, but build for When,
And other men who walk the way
Shall find the road we build today.

Who builds the Road of Masonry,
Though small or great his part,
However hard the task may be
May toil with singing heart.
For it is something, after all,
When muscles tire and shadows fall,
To know that other men shall bless
the BUILDER for his faithfulness
