From the East

Happy Spring ! Even though we are only getting periods of warm days it appears we got off quite easy this year with the snow.

Congratulations to Iouri Starosselski who received the Crystal Cook award for his many outstanding performances in the kitchen in 2015. I would imagine he is in contention for 2016 as well based on his performances thus far. Anyone care to challenge him?? Thank you to Tim Marotte for doing an outstanding job lining up the talent in the kitchen for our stated meetings and coming up with this creative award.

Rising Sun continues to be busy almost every Wednesday with advancing new candidates. Officers please ensure you are working on your next potential stations, as if an officer in front of you is out you need to be prepared to step up.

We have scheduled these degrees and events far enough in advance and have posted them in the Trestleboard, posted them on Facebook and they should be on our website calendar. You should have ample time to schedule appropriately.

I greatly appreciate all the assistance from our membership on the sidelines and our Past Masters who have stepped up when needed.

This is our lodge brethren and it needs each one of us to step up and do something, anything, and to continue to improve so others can enjoy the same that we have ourselves.

If you have a topic of discussion for our stated meetings and would like to present it for discussion please give me a call.

“The secret of concentration is the secret of self-discovery. You reach inside yourself to discover your personal resources, and what it takes to match them to the challenge.”
― Arnold Palmer


 

ARE YOU A TRAVELING MAN?
I am a traveling man.
My journey is never ending.
I travel towards the East,
The source of all light.
The source of all knowledge.

I am a traveling man.
I wander a winding road.
With many twists and turns.
I know not what lies ahead.
I find new truth with every step.

I am a traveling man.
On a path from whose bourn no traveler returns.
The final destination is not the goal.
The goal is the odyssey itself,
And what I learn with every new vista.

I am a traveling man.
It is the only thing I know for sure.
My insatiable curiosity,
And desire for knowledge
Are my ever present companions on this trek.

Traveling.
Traveling.
Traveling.
Never weary
Never ending.
