Dear Brethren,


These will be our final two meetings of the 2022-2023 Masonic Year, and I’m amazed at how quickly the months have passed.  We have raised some new Brothers, and lost some dear old friends, but through it all, Phoenix Lodge remains steadfast.  We’ll have some time to rest and refresh during July and August, and then look forward to another new Masonic year beginning in September.  


Our first meeting on Thursday, June 1 will be preceded by our annual Haines-Skarbek Scholarship Dinner.  Two scholarships will be presented to South Shore Vocational Technical High School students who are set to graduate and go on to do great things in their careers.


I have decided to begin the Degree Work on our next three candidates in June, and then we’ll have their Second and Third Degrees in October and November.  I hope you’ll join us on Thursday, June 15th as we get them started before we go dark for the summer.  


I want to say a special thank you to Bro. Troy Santarlasci who organized and held a CPR/AED training class at Phoenix Lodge in May.  Quite a few Brothers took part and it’s good to know we have so many men trained and prepared should the need ever arise.   


Our Mother’s Day breakfast had over 100 customers on a nice, sunny Sunday.  This has been a very successful year for our breakfast, and we have one more coming up in June.  Please join us on Sunday, June 11 whether eating in the dining room or joining us in the kitchen for some great fellowship.  


Thank you all for your terrific support this year.  I wish you a healthy and happy summer.


Fraternally,

Wor. Robert V. Terman

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.
