Masons4Mitts has come to LA!
We are partnering with the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation and their Dodgers RBI Baseball program to provide mitts to deserving boys and girls in some of our most underserved communities. We expect a big year from our team – so let’s show them how Masons can support as fans, as well as members of our community. Our Masons Night at Dodger Stadium will be Monday, August 31st. Come support our Grand Master as he presents a check at home plate. Thanks for all you do!
From the East!…
As we near the halfway mark for the year, it seems we are finally back on track with our degree work and have something scheduled each week for the foreseeable future. Thursday is back to being Lodge Night again! I would like to thank everyone who came out to our first expanded Info Night in March. The turnout was nothing less than spectacular with about 20-25 attendees, half of which were prospective candidates. Also, I would like to congratulate the planning committee for their incredible work putting together last month’s Grand Marshal Reception. The event was a smashing success and everyone had a great time!
We still have many events to come for the second half of the year, but we need your help to pull it off. There are several events that do not have any committees assigned to them, so if you are interested in helping the Lodge organize an event, please contact me. Meanwhile, it sounds like we may have an impromptu motorcycle ride being organized by some of our two wheeling members soon. If you would like to join us as a rider or passenger, please get in touch with me.
From the West!…
May I have your attention please. Our lack of April showers certainly did not spring up any May flowers. But you should hug your mother anyway, especially on her day, or at least make her breakfast in bed or send her a card. Just let her know you’re thinking about her, it’s Mother’s Day.
While it might be a great month for a stroll in the park one day, May brings us another initiation on the 14th! That’s right, you heard me, Thursday night is Lodge Night once again. Your officers are even planning some Thursday night social events in the coming months, for the Thursdays that we don’t have degrees scheduled. So, please stay tuned for details, as they will be forthcoming.
Lastly, May 4th be with you!
From the South!….
Greetings Brethren and Ladies!
April 12th brought the 2015 Grand Marshal’s Reception to Hollywood Lodge. There was a great turnout with the majority of the Grand Line in attendance. The In-n-Out truck was a big hit with everyone! I would like to give a special thank you to a few people who helped make the event a success; Nicki Weathersby, Deon Williams and his eldest daughter Lindsey Jones, Daniel Navama, Walter McClain, Andy Munoz (a new prospect) and Wo. Kast Excelsior, Past Master of Culver City Foshay lodge number 467. All of these individuals assisted to keep the festivities running smoothly and deserve our gratitude.
We all look forward to seeing you for stated dinner and meeting. May stated will be held Thursday May 7th. Dinner will start at 6:30 PM followed by the meeting at 7:30 PM.
May’s CSA covers The Christian Mystery School and will take place on Thursday May 21st which is not the last Thursday. Please take note and prepare yourself accordingly. The time is still 7:30 PM and open to Masons only.
