From the East

Summer is upon us and that means great warm weather, family fun, and our last stated meeting before we go dark for our summer break. That means our Hiatus Feast, with RWB Larry Gullett’s famous pulled pork, casual attire, flip-flops, Bermuda shorts and Hawaiian shirts ! Please ensure you invite your family and our special ladies to this great meal and fellowship event – we will have a brief meeting to take care of some business for roughly 30 minutes then retire upstairs to enjoy each other’s company.

Thank you to Iouri for another great meal at our May stated meeting as usual he outdid himself again !

Thank you to those brethren that attended Grand Lodge and also the Nashua Assembly Fine #9 installation of officers! Congratulations to Maddy Going on her retirement as Worthy Advisor having served 7 terms! What a great job she has done revitalizing Rainbow in Nashua. Also, congratulations to the newly installed Worthy Advisor Jackie Desrosiers and her new slate of officers – I am sure we will see great things continuing to come out of Nashua Assembly!

Remember although we go dark, we will still have plenty of opportunity to get together this summer after our Hiatus Feast with a MM on June 22nd, the Nashua Fairytale Festival, the Fishing Trip and the trek up to Nova Scotia for our annual exchange !

If you know of any brother or special lady that needs assistance please let one of our officers know.

ECHOES
by Douglas Malloch

Fine men have walked this way before,
Whatever Lodge your Lodge may be;
Whoever stands before the door,
The sacred arch of Masonry,
Stands where the wise, the great, the good,
In their own time and place have stood.

You are not Brother just with these,
Your friends and neighbors; you are kin
With Masons down the centuries;
This room that now you enter in
Has felt the trod of many feet,
For here all Masonry you meet.

You walk the path the great have trod,
The great in heart, the great in mind,
Who looked through Masonry to God,
And looked through God to all mankind;
Learned more that word or sign or grip,
Learned Man’s and God’s relationship.

To him who sees, who understands,
How mighty Masonry appears!
A Brotherhood of many lands,
A fellowship of many years,
A Brotherhood so great, so vast,
Of all the Craft of all the past.

And so I say a sacred trust
Is yours to share, is yours to keep;
I hear the voice of men of dust,
I hear the step of men asleep;
And down the endless future, too,
Your own shall echo after you.
