The October meeting is upon us and with it my last night in the East. I would be honored to have you join me for my final night.
Our September meeting was well attended. The Phoenix Lodge kitchen is back in business and provided a great meal for the forty Brothers that joined us as we hosted the South Shore Vo-Tec Scholarship evening. It was our first in person meeting without Zoom in a year and a half.
The Phoenix Lodge public breakfast was another success. Thank you to everyone that worked so hard to make this happen.
October will be a busy month for the Officers and members of Phoenix Lodge.
Our next Regular Communication is Thursday, October 7th at Phoenix Lodge. Dinner is at 6:00 PM. The Business meeting will open at 7:00 PM. This will be an Official Visit from our District Deputy R.W. Bro. Thomas U. Kenny and features a special presentation to a Brother. We will also be balloting on a candidate. You do not want to miss this important meeting.
Saturday, October 9th is the installation of 2021/2022 Officers of Phoenix Lodge. This is a public installation and will start at 1PM. R.W. Bro. Arnold M. Johnson will be performing the work of the day. Join us in congratulating our new line of Officers as they work their way to the East. They have worked very hard to prepare for this journey.
Sunday, October 10th is the Phoenix Lodge public breakfast. It has been said, this is the best breakfast in the Jurisdiction.
The Phoenix Lodge Blood Drive is scheduled for Saturday, October 16th . Our world famous Phoenix Lodge Clam Chowder and breakfast sandwiches will be available for all donors. Volunteers to assist the kitchen crew and to serve our donors are always welcome.
Also on Saturday, October 16th is our next Open House. Our last Open House was a great, fun-filled, and well attended event. If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining Freemasonry, please bring him by so that we can show him around and answer any questions he may have.
The next LOI is Thursday, October 28th and will be held at Cornerstone Lodge in Duxbury. R.W. Bro. Graeme Marsden will present “The Working Tools of a Colonial Surgeon”. It is an Open event, bring a friend. Attendance will be taken, it would be great for lots of brothers to come out and support Phoenix Lodge by taking the Attendance Award and the Officers Gavel.
As always, if you know of any Brothers who need assistance at home, transportation to Lodge meetings, or just need a call, contact the Secretary or myself.
Stay safe and healthy.

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.
