The Worshipful Master's Gavel

Greetings! Hello my Brothers.

As the shadow of our year grows longer, it is again time to begin discussing Grand Lodge Resolutions, The Holiday Season and the Masonic Town Hall Meeting. The G.L. Resolutions will be read at the Stated Meetings in October and November. Our Lodge will vote at the November Stated on the Resolutions so it may be carried to the Grand Lodge Sessions. The best way to ensure a successful Holiday Season is to plan, articulate and execute. Please be sure to speak with our S.D. Dennis Ashley regarding children at the Christmas Party and also J.W. Tony York regarding the Thanksgiving Pot Luck. By working together we will make certain this Holiday Season is remembered as being filled with Fellowship and Cheer.

Our Grand Master has expanded the Masonic Town Hall Meeting to include all Master Masons, Fellow Crafts and Entered Apprentices. Please plan on being at the Henderson Masonic Temple Building on Saturday, October 10 2015 at 10 A.M. so that you may participate in this important event.

In closing let me thank all of those who made the chili, ate the chili cleaned up after and set-up before or after for our Annual Chili Cook-Off. This is always a great event and this year was absolutely exceptional. A big SHOUT OUT to Betty Snowden who yet again amazes by adding those thoughtful touches that make everyone smile and feel welcome.

Fraternally, Patrick Welsh W.M

Greetings from the West

September went by in a flash. We had the honor of welcoming a new brother into Freemasonry and we will be able to do so again in October. As this year comes to its end officers should be ready for their next chair during degrees. Everyone has done such a great job thus far. Please contact me if anyone would like to work on degree work. During this month’s stated meeting we will be reading and discussing the Grand Lodge resolutions for the first time. Please make sure you can attend this meeting to help Mt. Moriah come to a well informed decision before voting in November. I look forward to sitting with you in lodge.

On the Level, Eric Holder Senior Warden

Brethren, I bring you Greetings from the South

Is it possible that October is already here? The year has flown by and we have reached the last full month of lodge events before the holiday shortened lodge events of November and December. On October 7th, we will be having Food & Fellowship at 6:30pm prior to the Stated Meeting. The “Food & Fellowship” menu is Cheeseburgers/Hamburgers, fries, chips, salad and dessert. We look forward to seeing you; please arrive early, as I have to stop serving food at 700 so we can get into Lodge on time. Our next family dinner will be October 21st and we will be having meatloaf, mashed potatoes, vegetable, salad, bread and dessert a special dish prepared by a special guest chef. I hope that your October plans include the lodge as we seek continued Fellowship.

Fraternally, Tony York Junior Warden

Brethren, as we get prepared for the upcoming holiday season and the end of our masonic year I’d like to encourage you all to come out and visit lodge. Whether you attend a stated and exercise your right to vote and have a say in lodge affairs, charitable good, or regular business, or you choose to bring your family down for our fellowship dinners and just enjoy an inexpensive night out with old friends and brothers along with their families and yours just to enjoy company of our fraternity. Or if you like to witness candidates and brothers go through degrees as they grow in masonry or observe the great ritual work happening, or even get involved in our charitable outreach programs, whatever it is GET INVOLVED. We would love to see you and we are able to do more through active membership. Hope to see you soon.

Fraternally,

The Secretary
