June Message - 2012

Greetings Brethren,

My brethren, first I want to congratulate our newest Master Masons:

Tom Hill
Fred Stark
Micah Anderson
David Fonseca

Please give them a warm welcome. They have been at lodge every stated meeting working on their degrees.

Gerald Fryda was at lodge to witness his son, Dean be initiated an entered apprentice. Congratulations to both
We also passed Brother Robert Bayer to Fellow Craft.

April and May went by very quickly. The brethren were in their tuxes every Thursday night. I would like to thank Chris Goodwin who was able to fill all the positions for all the degrees each time. I would like to thank the brethren for their joyful assistance and a special thanks to brethren that learned a new role to cover the different parts of the degree.

If you would like to learn a new part in a degree, just give me a call. We can get a skilled brother to work with you to ensure your success.

Summer is just around the corner. During the summer we will be having the Wisconsin Dells Trip, a golf outing and picnic at the Milwaukee Zoo with the Scottish Rite.

Mike Gorgen, PM, as set up a block of 10 rooms at Great Wolf Lodge for the McKinley Lodge Dells Trip on August 25 through the 26th. Cost is $151.99 for a room with Two Queen Beds and a pull out couch. This will give you 4 water park passes. Reservations need to be made by June 25th. To reserve do the following:Call 1-800-559-WOLF (9653). The group reservation is #1208MASON1.

When we return from summer we will be having our annual corn and brat roast. Ken and Mike have graciously volunteered their grilling skills. We than will be celebrating the 25, 50 and 60 year anniversary of some of our brethren. It would be extra special to have everyone be a part of these events.

For those of you that have not been at lodge in a while, stop on by. We donÃÕ care if you have been gone for two meetings, twenty meetings or two hundred meetings, you are our brother and we would be glad to see you again. If you cannot stop by, than send us a letter and let us know how you are doing.
