September Message - 2013

posted Sep 25, 2013, 6:56 PM by McKinley Lodge
Greeting Brothers and friends,

It is hard to believe it has been two months since I wished everyone a safe and happy summer.  I hope that all enjoyed the great weather we experienced this season

The cornerstone plague donated by Bob Kappel, PM is installed.  Take a look at the bronze plague as you enter the building and thank Bob for this generous gift. 

The new altar donated by the Acadia Chapter of the Eastern Star,was delivered in July.  Don Haas, PM brought the new altar into the lodge room.  It looks beautiful.  The Altar is in memory of Marion Redding.

Prior to going dark the lodge initiated Keith Egelston as an Entered Apprentice.  Josh Young was passed to the degree of Fellow Craft.  Be prepared for a Master Mason degree and Fellow Craft degree in October

As we come out of the summer recess, there is work and enjoyment to be had in the lodge.  As you know we start off with our famous Corn and Brat night, remember that the dress code for that night is Hawaiian shirt and slacks.

The awards ceremony is at our second stated meeting September 19, 2013.

Some will be looking at the blue calendar and wondering what is the fund raising dinner on Friday October 18th.        At the time, there was discussion of having a fish fry or spaghetti dinner.  There were some good arguments made for the spaghetti dinner but in the end the fish fry won out.  So Friday October 18th will be our “World Famous Fish Fry.”

Ladies at the Table is right behind the Fish Fry on November 2nd.

I will then end my second term as Master with Dinner with Santa, December 5.

See you all soon at our September meeting and get ready to head into a very active

Fall at McKinley Lodge.
