Wausau Trestleboard
April 2016

Download a .pdf Version of the TrestleBoard here.

It was an exciting month of March. We welcomed a new Brother and had a very successful St. Patrick’s Day dinner. I would like to personally thank Barry and Shirley Diehl, Peter and Karen Rotter, Jesse Furrer and Quincy Kasper for the hard work they put forth in making this event happen and run smoothly. The collaboration of the MM degree with Mosinee Lodge went very well. WM Kevin Sorenson did an EXCELLENT job conferring. We also had two Brothers celebrate milestone birthdays last month. Kevin Schumann entered into his 4th decade of life and Jeff Traeger entered his 6th decade. Congratulations to both of these Brothers and may your next decade be better than the last!

We have another busy month ahead. There will be and FC degree on April 16th at 10:30 am for Brother Nathan Palmer. He has been working hard and is excited to continue his Masonic journey. Try to attend if you can to support him during his next step in Masonry. PM Dan Maguire will have a presentation on the Masonic youth groups during the second stated meeting. The annual highway cleanup will take place on April 27th. Please meet at Forest Lodge by 5:00 pm to help. We usually go out to dinner after the cleanup has completed for some additional fellowship. Also, Forest Lodge will be participating in the Memorial Day parade in Wausau. Following the parade there will be a “wing and cigar” party at Jesse Furrer’s Home. If you are interested in participating or can help please contact Jason Tidd. Enjoy the warmer weather that is coming and I look forward to seeing you in our Lodge.
