Greetings Brethren,

 McKinley Lodge would like to congratulate, Jennifer Niggemeier. Jennifer just completed her year as the Grand Bethel Honored Queen for JobÃÔ Daughters in August. Jennifer is also a Past Honored Queen from Bethel 53, which meets at McKinley Masonic Center. Her whole Bethel is very proud of her and the work she accomplished. She is now a freshman at Ripon College. For more information on JobÃÔ daughters please contact Barbra Pasholk (262-679-1590).

McKinley Lodge would like to wish McKenna Nerone all the best as she participates in the National Miss Pageant, which helps to teach leadership, confidence, public speaking, as well as provide her a scholarship for college.McKenna is Brookfield DeMolayÃÔ sweetheart.

The corn and brat night was a huge success. Mike Gorgen PM husked 72 ears of corn and grilled 72 brats. James Stone and James Lovett PM helped in the kitchen and helped serve.

We had a presentation on the York Rite thanks to Joe Balint.

We had our awards banquet. We awarded 25, 50, 60 and 65 year certificates. Thank you brethren for your labor for the craft.

 The Packer football game has been moved to October 7th at noon. We will havepizzas and soda. The Packers play the Indianapolis Colts. Go Pack Go

 We will then be entering October with the World Famous Fish Fry, on Friday, October 19. This year we will be trying a "Drive Around" for our takeout orders. We are going to position a brother out front to take orders. The carry out orders can be picked up at the kitchenÃÔ back door.

 Get ready for November, because it is time for Å­adies at the Table Ken Gorgen, PM. has a delicious meal in mind. The topic for this table will be Masonic Presidents Wives. 

We had discussion on the proposal for the directory. The brethren would like to keep moving forward to get it accomplished. The brethren are working on getting a template and questions together. We are going to try to contact some brethren by phone and then by mail or email. I would like to thank Tom Hill, Micah Anderson and Ryan Mayrand, PM for charging ahead with this initiative.

We are looking for a Past Master to preside over the lodge for our 100thyear. Please contact Todd Jaremko if you are interested.

We are also, looking for an individual to chair a fund raising committee.
