~ October 2016 ~
From the East
What a great meeting last month with a great meal provided by our Senior Warden, Ken Ziehm and two of our newest Master Masons – Kevin Bailey and Ron Vincent. Thank you to all who helped cook and clean up!
It is always great to see the lodge room full and I want to thank everyone for coming out. From the feedback I received it sounds like everyone thought the programs were extremely beneficial from our SW, Ken Ziehm and RWDDGL Bob Porter presenting responsibilities and expectations of officers and members to RW Brother Gaskill who gave us another truly amazing story on the history of Rising Sun Lodge.
I am asking all members to try to make it to the Open House and our Stated Meeting in October, as I will not be around and our Brother Junior Warden will certainly need assistance. Please come out and support him during my absence.
Guy R. Martineau, W.M.
