Update from the Worshipful Master
Updated: August 21, 2020
It’s hard to believe, but we are past the halfway point of the year, and the dog days of summer are waning. As we look to the latter half of the year, let’s focus on the work ahead of us.
The DGM Roast Committeeis is working hard to raise funds to assist our own RWB Jan Giddens during his upcoming year as Grandmaster. In September we are hosting a Yard Sale at the Lodge on Sept 5-6, 12-13, and 19-20, and we need your help. If you have items to donate, see the flyer below for dates and the list of items we can accept. If you can help selling and manning tables, contact Brother Don Beckwith to volunteer.
Furniture (must be easy handled by 1 person), pet supplies, bed & bath, kitchen items, home decor, small electronics & appliances, office supplies, personal care items (air purifiers, hair dryers, etc), books, exercise equipment (no treadmills or heavy pieces), sporting goods, arts & crafts, toys & games, luggage, holiday items, baked goods
Clothing, jewelry, fabric, large furniture, mattresses, box springs, drop-side cribs, car seats, VHS tapes, 35mm cameras, fax machines, printers, large appliances, tower computers, keyboards, CRT computer monitors, tube TVs, ceiling fans, overhead light fixtures, tires
Also in September, we are pleased to welcome the Grand Secretary, Van S. “Mac” McGee to the Lodge for our September 15th Regular Communication.
It continues to be a difficult time for our state, country and fraternity, and in spite of the pandemic threat of COVID-19 still lurking, we cannot give in to fear & let it immobilize us. Please continue to keep the Grandmaster and all of the Grand Officers in your prayers – they need your support now more than ever.
Keep an eye on the Trestle Board & Lodge calendar on the Website. I am updating it with the latest plans for the Lodge, as well as any upcoming needs.
We have many activities to finish out the year strong, and I look forward to seeing you all there!
Stay safe, healthy and well Brethren.
Jay Finch, Worshipful Master
