OK, June is over but there’s plenty of summer left to have fun and fellowship with your Masonic brothers! A few of us just got back from an EA degree in Rhinelander. DDGM Joe Barlow conferred the degree and Mosinee lodge was also represented along with a sitting WM from a lodge in Ontario. The degree was very well done and the root beer floats afterwards were welcome in the heat. Forest Lodge delivered the traveling gavel to our Rhinelander brothers.
Barb and I are delving into some operative masonry this summer, building a stone retaining wall in our back yard. I may be Master of a speculative Lodge, but I am an EA, a bearer of burdens, in this project. Barb has a firm grip on the Trestleboard.
Please join us for some or all of the events on the calendar below. There should be something for everyone, and, we look forward to seeing each of you at one or more of the events. With the exception of the Lodge meetings and degrees, all events are open to Masons of any degree, family, widows, and friends. Have a great summer and we’ll see you soon!
Yours truly in Peace and Harmony,
Dan Maguire, WM
