Others are asked to bring their favorite dish of salad, vegetable, or dessert. The dinner and presentation are open and we invite all masons, their families, and friends.



HELP WANTED
Every Masonic Lodge elects and appoints Masonic Lodge Officers to execute the necessary functions of the lodge's life and work.  Events leading to the upcoming Masonic year (June 27) require that two new Lodge Officers be appointed by the incoming Worshipful Master John Samuel.  Any man, regardless of his social, business, or economic position outside the lodge room, may aspire to be Master of his Lodge.  Consider serving your Masonic lodge as an Officer.  You will be glad that you did.
