FROM THE EAST

Brethren,

We celebrated our annual visitation (49 years) with our Brothers in Rossville, Ga. a good time was had by all. Our Brothers arrived Sept. 24th and we're treated to a reception that evening for fellowship. The morning of the 25th the Brothers were treated to a breakfast at the lodge, thank you Junior Warden Mark Caldron for a wonderful breakfast. The Brothers then visited the NRA museum, the George Washington Masonic Memorial, had dinner and finished the night at the Iwo Jima Memorial. The Brothers from Ga. had a great time and invited us back down to Rossville, Ga. for  2017. This will be 50 years of visitation between our two lodges. We will have dates for this visit decided by March, to allow everyone an opportunity to plan and schedule for this event. Finally, I would like to remind you we have elections coming up in November and December I encourage all Brothers to attend our stated communications. This is your lodge be involved in its future.

S&F, Wor. Farley Warner

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
