The holidays are almost upon us and there is still much to
do before the year ends. We have several things planned to close out the year
with and I hope we can have everyone there.
The Annual Past Masters and Awards Dinner is going to be
held on November 8, starting at 4pm at the Lodge. Come out and support our Past
Masters and brethren who have served the lodge for 25, 40, 50 years.
I attended Grand Lodge on October 19-21. There were
several things that occurred at Grand Lodge this year. One was a dues increase
and the continued decline in our ranks. Kentucky is now down to 47,000 plus
members from the high of over 100,000. Also, please congratulate Bro. Greg
Powell on his election to Grand Junior Warden.
We will again be having our Fruit of Labor Auction on Nov.
1 at 7pm. Bring any item that you wish that has been made to the lodge or
contact Leroy Smith to make the necessary arrangements.
Hope to see you all at lodge this month and come out to
support your lodge.
Donít forget our monthly breakfast on November 2, 8am-
1pm! Also, there will be a Country Dinner on November 23, 3-7pm.
WHY WE MEET
We meet for the purpose of admitting members to our fellowship, to instruct
them in the lessons and principles (of Masonry) and to strengthen each other in
adherence thereto, said George W. Speth, in a public lecture in 1892. We meet to
hand down to succeeding generations the knowledge and practice of certain
ceremonies, which we have ourselves inherited from our Masonic ancestors, and
the analogues of which can be traced in the remotest antiquity... Lastly we meet
to practice our three grand principles of Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.
