Tidings From The East
And like that gentlemen the year is halfway over. I think it has been a very successful year to say the less and a lot still going on. Brothers Dylan, Ben, Gustavo are continuing their journeys through the degrees. Brother McClarnon has completed his and will be proving up in his Master Mason degree soon.
The Farmer’s Market has begun, and we will be out on Saturdays from 7:30am-12pm, there is an excel sign up via email. WM, SW, and JW will be there most days with the help of Bros Alati, Thompson, Krishna. Please look at it and see if you can lend a hand in growing our lodge and possibly sell a few breakfast burritos.
We will possibly have FC and MM degree this month; June 19th a FC and June 26th a MM. As always Tuesdays practice from 6-8pm.
Upcoming events to put on your calendar: Flag raising, A2A parade, and a few dinners. Please feel free to join us, families and all. Any questions please contact W.M. Myron Bell; Jr or W.B. Hal Cottrell.
As always, Thank You for the support. Look well gentlemen and hope to see you later.

A Note From The Desk Of The Secretary
We are on a strong pace this year to see our lodge membership increase some. Even though we have seen 2 of our Brethren travel to that undiscovered country and three other deciding not to continue on with us in our good work. We’ve had one Brother reinstated after 30 years, another Brother demitted to us, one Brother raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason, and 3 more working their way toward becoming Master Mason. With the new proficiency requirements it takes a little bit longer to proceed to the next degree. However the hope it that this will encourage brother continue with us on the journey instead of letting their membership drop. I encourage every brother to assist me in bringing a new person to light in Masonry.
The May’s family outing at La Mesa’s was a huge success. We had over 50 people show up to share in good food and friendship. W.B Rick Baker, Br. Bill Pickle and myself came prepared with jokes and entertaining questions for the group. Even Bellevue’s Rainbow girl Abigail Pickle join in the fun of telling jokes. Keep an eye out for the next family outing in June and come join us. It promises to be a great time!
I hope everyone is making plans to attend the Lodge’s membership night on Sept 4, 2019. Dinner will be at 6 PM with a business meeting to follow. Most Worshipful Grand Master Bob Moninger will be attending along with Deputy Grand Master Ron Stites. We will be asking for RSVP in late July and August so that W.M. Myron Bell, Jr can plan on how many meals to plan on. Just as a reminder that the dinner is open to all Masons and their spouses or guest.

Happy Birthday To You All!
