Greetings Ladies and Brethren,
What a great first Stated Meeting we had as a new line! Thank you so very much for all of your support. Your attendance is the reason we all work so hard and it’s so pleasant to walk into a fuller Social Hall. We nearly doubled our attendance in our very first month! We had 3 menu options, music, announcements in the hall, and to coin Rivian Fishkin’s phrase and credit her for her suggestion, we wanted to “come in with a bang” with Ladies Entertainment! Anna Madjeski did just that with a very well received Children’s Concert that turned out to be a hit with the Ladies! And let’s congratulate our Ladies Entertainment organizer, Nicki Weathersby, who was unable to attend, for good reason. Our Junior Warden, Josh Weathersby and Nicki had their first child, Zoe Olivia Weathersby! Congratulations!!!
If we can double the attendance in one month, I have no doubt we can triple it soon after. We have the numbers in our membership to do this easily! Our meeting went smoothly. We had a little bit of a late start, but we ended in a timely manner despite. There was a great energy in the room and we, the Officers, are motivated and pumped to work even harder to fill up those seats! In the month of March, we will be going to the always well attended Santa Anita Race Track and we are back on track with degree work! Thank you all and I look forward to seeing more of you!
Sincerely and Fraternally,
Worshipful Master Hollywood Lodge #355

It’s March “Master Mason” Madness everyone, which means we will have two brothers being raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason this month! The first ceremony will be on the 13th followed by a Second Degree Examination. The second ceremony will be the following week on the 20th followed by a Third Degree Examination. Come support your brethren by attending their degrees and celebrate their special night with them afterwards as we enjoy delicious meals prepared by our lodge caterer.
As usual, our Collegium Solvitur Ambulando will be held at 7:30pm on the 27th, when presentation will be given on the Charges of a Mason. This topic will center on the character worthy of the title, Freemason, and will be open to masons only, casual attire and refreshments will be made to order by our lodge caterer.

Wow! What a month. What an awesome event that Murdertopia Sweethearts Dinner was. Who saw that ending coming? And who would have guessed who really done it?? Our lucky winners, that’s who, and they deserve a hearty congratulations. Thank you to Wo. Sheldon Mowery for organizing a KILLER event! I hope to see everyone at our upcoming Stated Meeting Dinner. We are currently taking reservations, please, call or email to get your order in soon.
Did someone ask what is the Ladies Entertainment this month? I am glad that you asked……………….
According to my undisclosed sources the ladies are invited to participate in a St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Wear as much green as you can to show your spirit. Prizes will be awarded for whomever shows the most St. Patrick’s Day spirit and for the team that wins the St. Patrick’s Trivia Challenge. Enjoy the festivities while decorating cupcakes made by my lovely wife, Nicki.
I know I am really looking forward to a day at the races at the Santa Anita Park on the 22nd, so I hope you are too. Thank you to Brother Spyros Pappas for organizing a truly wonderful event. March is coming in like a lion so I am out like a lamb. Have a great month everybody!
your Junior Warden
