April 2012 Trestleboard

Wausau Trestleboard
April 2012

Download a Word Version of the TrestleBoard here.

We had a great combined degree effort with Virginia Falls Lodge to raise their Brother Gary Erickson to the sublime degree of Master Mason on March 21st.  Between the two Lodges, we had more chairs (officers and sidelines) filled for a meeting than we’ve seen in quite a while and it was great to combine work with the brothers from Merrill.  So what does April bring?  Br. Jeff Treager’s MM degree on Friday April 27th, plus an FC degree and maybe one or two EA degrees.  So to fit this all in, we’ll probably have an extra meeting on the 2nd Wednesday in April.  Stay tuned.

I want to give a special pat on the back to our Junior Warden and Stewards for keeping us well-fed so far this year.  The food has been great and we really appreciate their efforts both in preparing the dinners and for cleaning up afterwards.  We also enjoy the time this gives us all to build our Masonic friendships and brotherly love.

Don’t miss out on the food, fellowship or the great degree work!  See you in Lodge!

Yours truly in Peace and Harmony,
Dan Maguire, WM
