April is upon us and yet there is still snow on the ground. There are a number of events to take note of for this month.
First, on April 2, 2014 at our regular stated communication we will have a Wild West night where the brothers are asked to wear their favorite Western wear or cowboy wear. I will even dispense with the rule against wearing head coverings by the brothers so that you may wear cowboy hats if you wish. We will also take the opportunity to invite members of the Wausauken Indians Shrine unit to attend and promote the Wausauken Indian’s Potentate’s party scheduled for April 26, 2014. The potentate’s party is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Shrinedom and share fellowship with those brothers who have joined this Masonic organization.
The Scottish Rite Spring reunion is being held on April 5 and May 3rd with members of Forest Lodge participating in many of the degrees. This is another terrific event by another Masonic fraternity that many of the brother’s from your Lodge participate in and I encourage you to attend if you are a member and consider joining if you are not yet a member.
Additionally there is the Feast of the Pascal Lamb, which is scheduled for April 13, 2014 at the Wausau Masonic Center. There is additional information in this bulletin and I encourage the brothers to participate in this event as well.
Finally, I think that Forest Lodge usually does highway cleanup on our stretch of County Highway N in April but this year, given the snow depth I believe that we should wait until May.
