Master's Message
August, 2003
 

    Brothers,  

    Summer is quickly winding down! September will be here shortly and we will be back to two meetings a month.

    I want to thank everyone who gave of their time and donations to help us with the expense of repairing the ceiling in the lodge hall, we raised over a $1,000.00! We will get to it as soon as the heat in the lodge hall cools down a bit. The dinner we had in June for the fund raising went so well we are going to continue them into September and November. So help us continue this venture with your support and enthusiasm!

    Our Annual Picnic is August 17 at Sergeants Park. Good food, games and all around great fellowship. Please plan to attend. Starting at 12 noon!

    We are going to have a called meeting to confer the EA degree on two new candidates. We will start with Coffee & Donuts at 7:30 A.M. with the EA degree to follow. Come help us show why we are Masons to these new candidates.

    Don’t forget our monthly breakfast on August 3, 8am- 1pm!

I AM FREEMASONRY

    I was born in antiquity, in the ancient days when men first dreamed of God. I have been tried through the ages, and found true. The crossroads of the world bear the imprint of my feet, and the cathedrals of all nations mark the skill of my hands. I strive for beauty and for symmetry. In my heart are wisdom and strength and courage for those who ask. Upon my altar is the Book of Holy Writ, and my prayers are to the One Omnipotent God, my sons work and pray together, without rank or discord, in the public mart and in the inner chamber. Thru signs and symbols I teach the lessons of life and of death and the relationship of man with God and of man with man. My arms are widespread to receive those of lawful age and good report who seek me of their own free will. I accept them and teach them to use my tools in the building of men, and thereafter, find direction in their own quest for perfection so much desired and so difficult to attain. I lift up the fallen and shelter the sick. I hark to the orphans' cry, the widow’s tears, and the pain of the old and destitute. I am not church, nor party, nor school, yet my sons bear a full share of responsibility to God, to country, to neighbor and themselves. They are freemen, tenacious of their liberties and alert to lurking danger. At the end I commit them as each one undertakes the journey beyond the vale into the glory of everlasting life. I ponder the sand within the glass and think how small is a single life in the eternal universe. Always have I taught immortality, and even as I raise men from darkness into light, I am a way of life. I Am Freemasonry.
