Forest Lodge had the pleasure of welcoming three new good men as Brothers into our Fraternity last month. They are each excited to be Freemasons and are already studying hard to further themselves in Masonry. WM Brian Miller of Mystic Tie #280 of Ladysmith Wisconsin won the “cheesy mustache” contest put on by the Grand Master, Don Hensiak. On March 18th at 9:30 am the Grand Master and some of his officers will be cooking a “cheesy breakfast” at the Mystic Tie Lodge as a result. It looks to be a fun event and if you would like to attend you can RSVP with Brian Miller or District Deputy Mark Steckel, a $10 donation is requested. There will also be a Master Mason Degree at Island City Lodge in Minocqua on March 11th at 9:30 am. I encourage you to attend and help make this day as special as possible for our Brother.
We will be having a Scottish Rite Appreciation night on March 15th with a Corned Beef Dinner. Prior to the dinner, we will be having a special presentation of the play “Defense of the Ruffians”. On March 29th there will be a Scottish Rite Mini Reunion held at Forest Lodge. I am a Scottish Rite Mason myself and I think very highly of the organization. I am very proud to be a member. If you would like more information about the Scottish Rite Mini Reunion or how to join, please contact Rick Schnabel or Joe Barlow.
I look forward to seeing you in Lodge,
