WHAT IS A FREEMASON?

A Freemason conducts himself in society as if there were no laws - human or Divine, except those written in his heart by the finger of his Creator.  He kneels before the universal throne of the Divine in gratitude for the blessings he has received and humble solicitation for his future protection.  He does not disturb or mock the Religion of others.  He restrains his passions in a manner that will not injure himself or his neighbor.  He gives no offense, because he does not choose to be offended.  He contracts no debts which he is certain he cannot fulfill, because he is honest upon principal.

"The secret of Masonry, like the secret of life, can be known only by those who seek it, serve it, live it.  If cannot be uttered; it can only be felt and acted.  It is, in fact, an open secret, and each man knows it according to his quest and capacity.  Like all things worth knowing, no one can know it for another and no man can know it alone."  ~Joseph Fort Newton

FROM THE EAST

Brethren,

     I wish each and every one of you a Happy New Year. I hope to see more of the Brothers return to lodge and become more involved in its future. We had some administrative changes that slowed down the mailing of dues notices.  They will be mailed out the first week of January. I apologize for any inconvenience.

     Our stated will be January 16, 2017. The program will be on Masonic Etiquette. Lodge School will be on January 9th and January 23rd at 6:30 PM at Elmer Timberman Loge. We will have more dates in the upcoming months. I invite everyone that is able to attend. Our school has suffered a decline in attendance and we want to change that.

     February 20, 2017 is our DDGM's official visit. We will be preparing for that in the upcoming month and hope Brother's will save the date. Brothers, I ask again that you attend your lodge to support it and Masonry. It's nothing more than an empty building without its members. It's YOUR lodge, be involved in its future. I hope to see you very soon.

S&F, Wor. Joe Millirons
