June 2012 Trestleboard

Wausau Trestleboard
June 2012

Download a Word Version of the TrestleBoard here.


We have had fantastic first half of the year with a number of degrees conferred, new brothers posted and becoming active. Our District Deputy Grand Master, John Tilley, even pointed out the young average age of our active members. We’re truly blessed as a Lodge and a band of Brothers, and I’m very proud of my young and active Lodge as well as the “more experienced” Brothers who made it possible. And yeah, I’m one of the “more experienced”, although still young, I’ve been a Mason for 30 years.

But degree work, while important, isn’t everything. Our Lodge needs to take a breather and have some fun this summer that doesn’t involve degree conferrals. We will not go dark per se—we will not have any stated communications in July or August but we will confer FC and MM degrees as needed for those already in-process. We will not confer any EA degrees until after our September stated meeting because that’s the next time we will be able to vote on a petition.

Here are some of the activities in the planning stage for this summer—a Wednesday night at Concerts on the Square, a Woodchucks game at Athletic Part, a family picnic, and maybe some other fun events. I don’t have dates for any of these yet but please stay tuned and check out the Wausau Masons website: wausaumasons.com. Hope to see you this summer!

Yours truly in Peace and Harmony,
Dan Maguire, WM
