I apologize for missing last month’s meeting, but I just wasn’t feeling well before the meeting, and I felt it best to leave. I’m so thankful that we have great guys at Phoenix Lodge like R.W. Arnie Johnson, who stepped in for me at the last minute. Thank you Right Worshipful Brother Johnson.
I’d also like to thank Wor. Bro. Bud Mosher for working with Bro. John Dolim Jr and Bro. Andrew Souza on their lecture so that they could exemplify in open Lodge. It’s been quite a while since we’ve done that, and Wor. Mosher did a great job preparing them for that presentation. Thank you, and well done!
Our Mason/Knight Night on April 12 was another big success. Bro. Andrew Mihaley gave a very interesting talk on his work in the field of aviation that was enjoyed by all. We look forward to continuing our annual get-togethers with the Knights of Columbus for many years to come.
Please join us on Thursday, May 4th as we continue with the Fellow Craft degree on Bros. Crowley, Kmito and Medico. We are planning two meetings for June. Please plan to attend on Thursday, June 1 for our annual Haines-Skarbek Tool Scholarship Dinner and Election of Officers for the 2017-2018 Masonic Year, and on Thursday, June 8 for Past Masters’ Night when we will confer the Master Mason Degree on our three candidates.
Look forward to seeing you all there!
Wor. John McIntyre

BEHAVIOUR after the LODGE is over and the BRETHREN not GONE
You may enjoy yourself with innocent Mirth, treating one another according to Ability, but avoiding all Excess, or forcing any Brother to eat or drink beyond his Inclination, or hindering him from going when his Occasions call him, or doing or saying anything offensive, or that may forbid an easy and free Conversation, for that would blast our Harmony, and defeat our laudable Purposes. Therefore no private Piques or Quarrels must be brought within the Door of the Lodge, far less any Quarrels about Religion, or Nations, or State Policy, we being only, as Masons, of the Universal Religion above mention'd, we are also of all Nations, Tongues, Kindreds, and Languages, and are resolv’d against all Politics, as what never yet conduct'd to the Welfare of the Lodge, nor ever will.
