From the East

Thank you to all the brothers who attended lodge, and cooked last stated meeting, as well as the people who cooked the meal for Eastern Star. 

Please take just 5 minutes out of your day to just reach out and communicate with a brother you have not seen in a while or might be new to the lodge.   Brotherly love , Relief and Truth are our foundation and if we are not talking with each other on a regular basis we are unable to  fulfill the promises we have made to ourselves and each other.  If there is anybody out there in need, or sickness please let us know so we can help if possible.

 

Sincerely & Fraternally

Kenneth E. Ziehm, II W.M.

A BROTHER’S HAND

When you’re feeling all downhearted,
And life’s hard to understand,
Say, it’s fine to feel the pressure
Of a Brother’s friendly hand.

Just to know he sympathizes,
Though he doesn’t say a word;
How it starts your courage climbing,
As your heart is touched and stirred.

With an arm across your shoulders,
And a grip you love to find,
How it makes you feel the bounding
Of the hearts of humankind.

It is just a little token
Of an ever growing band,
For there’s faith and hope and courage
In a Brother’s friendly hand!

Brother George B. Staff

Masonic Quotes By Brothers

AN IRISH MESSAGE ON STONE

In 1860, at Limerick, Ireland, there was found in a small chapel a stone dated 1517 with the following inscription:

“I will serve to live with love and care, Upon the level, by the square.”
