Brethren,

Well another spring has come and gone, hope you all took a moment to smell the flowers and not just let life pass you by. Stay tuned in to our website over the summer for summer events scheduled and unscheduled and other opportunities to gather together and enjoy fellowship over the months our Lodge is Dark.

From the Secretary,

Brethren,

As summer draws near I would like to encourage all of you to come join in summer activities starting with a call to assist our brethren in need. As many of you know PGM Bud Shead and may recall a couple summers back when we assisted him in some concrete work and yard work over a couple days and what a difference it made to him as well as the fellowship those of us fortunate enough to attend were able to take part in. I would like to start the summer with a yard cleanup there the first Saturday in June on the 4th of June at 8am till 1 when we will break for lunch and head home after. No concrete this time I promise, but the yard does need cleaned up and mowed and some light sprinkler repairs. Please let me know if you
can attend.

Brethren,

April 2016 is soon to arrive, plan to spend one night in lodge, whether its dinner or a stated meeting or watching a degree or practice degree, or some sort of educational program…. Your bound to enjoy your evening and catch up with your brothers. Who knows you may even learn something. In any case we sure would love to see you, so look over the schedule and plan on attending at least one night this month and remember what freemasonry is all about. As April brings warmer weather I will be setting the dates for this year’s Summer Pool Party and BBQ, with some changes in mind to add a fundraising twist to support various events for various masonic bodies that meet in our Henderson Temple. There will still be swimming and BBQ to enjoy by all, but we will add some items and/or raffles as part of the fundraiser. To help brainstorm and make this a success, text or email me your ideas.

Thanks

From the Secretary,

Brethren,

The Annual “Pete-Buell” Super-Bowl Party was cancelled due to a health emergency but will resume in 2017. If you haven’t gotten your annual dues in you may find an
extra letter reminding you to do so this month, and please try to get them back as soon as possible.

Also I will mail or email the form for allowing us to know your position either way on masonic rites at your funeral someday, all info will be kept strictly
confidential until the appropriate time. My Sad duty to report that the following brothers have laid down their working tools:

  • Michael Bergemeyer PM
  • Richard Abajian
  • Larry Fust

Finally a reminder that some HTA board members have some bylaws changes proposed for the fall and you should receive more info in April.

Brethren,

Dues notices have gone out and your prompt attention will ensure that the lights stay on and we can continue with our true purpose, making good men better. Also our annual Super Bowl Party is coming up and I plan to serve and plan next years event hoping to either build the event or decide if we should continue it. Hope to see some of you there and in lodge soon.

Brethren,
I truly hope the holidays were good to all of you. I think this year is going to be different and starting it out right…..To all of you Happy New Year.

The dues notices will come out in the next month, please remit them as quick as policy if it seems alright.

Now is the best time to let everyone know about the upcoming food fellowship and fundraising at the Super Bowl Party. This annual event is a lot of fun with good BBQ and drinks will have good food and prizes. I will be selling entry tickets this year and hope you will be able to make it.

Hope to see you soon.

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

I’m happy to report our lodge is doing fine ritual work this year and we are gaining members and affiliate members and growing as a family. I hope to see more of you in regular attendance. It was good to see brothers from Ireland, present at our family dinner in March, to know that a brother can travel half way around the globe and not just be welcomed by men he doesn’t know, but to be welcomed as family is the true treasure of our fraternity. I hope to someday visit their lodge.

Fraternally,

Mike Harris
Secretary

March is here already and the year is off to a great start, as I watch our officer line move forward with great ritual work, and lots of energy, I am excited to see what we accomplish as a lodge in the next few years. Come on down and help make lodge a great place to spend time with brothers.

Also for this months family dinner we will be delivering meals to widows unable to make it in as well as brothers who may be unable to make it for whatever reason. If you are a brother living in the area and are simply not able to make it to dinner but would like to visit with your brothers over a nice meal, please contact me and we will make it happen. If you’re an active brother and able to help deliver food for that purpose, please contact me so we may be able to split up and serve all those we can.

Fraternally
Mike Harris
Secretary
