MASONIC SERVICE AWARDS

As we close the book on Masonic Year 2009-2010 it appears we will celebrate in October this year the Masonic Birthdays under the Grand Lodge 50 Year Masonic Service Award Program We have not had the opportunity to verify all of these but it appears that we will have one 65 Year member, four or five 60 Year Members and about seven 50 Year Members. When the Grand Lodge approves the awards, we will publish the names in our bulletin.

God is like TIDE. He gets the stains out that others leave behind.

Little Larry’s Kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police station where they saw pictures tacked to a bulletin board of the 10 most wanted criminals. One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the photo of a wanted person. “Yes” said the policeman, “ The detectives want very bad to capture him.” Larry asked, “Why didn’t you keep him when you took his picture.

Larry watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face. “Why do you do that, Mommy?” he asked. ‘To make myself beautiful’ said his mother. After a few minutes she began removing the cream with a tissue. ‘What’s the matter are you giving up?’ asked Larry.
