We had a great night during our May meeting.
The officers did a great job helping two good men take their second step in Freemasonry and the star of the show was our Senior Deacon, Bro. Bob Terman who did a fantastic job with the Middle Chamber Lecture.
Thanks to Bro. Bobby McDermott our first Phoenix card night took place in May. Brother Bobby is also planning a Phoenix bowling night, and he will keep you posted as it is firmed up.
We are also planning on having a day of fishing and grilling at the Rainbow camp in Hanson. The day will start with some great fishing and end with a barbecue.
If you are interested, please email or call me directly. We already have several boats, canoes and inflatables, and for those who don’t want to venture out on the lake you can fish from the shore or man the grill. If we have enough guys, we can have prizes for the biggest fish and for the most fish landed so please shoot me an email if you would like to join us. I promise you it will be a great time!
In addition to our regular meeting we hosted the Knights of Columbus on May 8th and our monthly Mother’s Day breakfast, where moms eat for free, on May 12th. Both were hugely successful.
June will be very busy as we have two meetings scheduled. The first meeting will include our annual scholarship dinner, voting on elected officers as well as raising one candidate by the officers of “The” Phoenix Lodge. The second meeting will be our annual Past Masters night where we will raise two candidates.
Please continue to support Wor. Don as well as Phoenix Lodge by coming to Lodge of Instruction. The speakers at LOI have been very informative and I don’t think one brother walks out without having learned something new. They have really upped their game.
We are all extremely proud by the support our members show the district, and many men from other lodges have commented on the turnout of Phoenix brothers. We are indeed the premier lodge in our district, and I could not be prouder.
Temperance Fortitude Prudence Justice
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.
