From the East!…
February has arrived! Last month marked the beginning of the new year and many plans were laid out for the rest of the calendar. Now it’s time to put those plans into execution. I’m truly humbled by the outpouring of support for making this a great year. I would like to thank everyone who has volun-teered to serve on committees, boards, coordinate events, help with administrative functions or dedi-cate their time and energy for the benefit of the Lodge and its membership!
I am reminded of a quote from one of our brethren that:
“Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
Bro. Henry Ford, Palestine Lodge No. 357 F & AM

Grab your groundhog and get close to a loved one, because it’s February!
This month brings us many things; Days for Groundhogs, Valentine’s Day of guaranteed greeting card sales, Dinner for Sweethearts and Nights full of Information, but alas, degrees and examinations are not among these things. That’s right folks it appears Hollywood Lodge will be dark this month, but do not fret as we have plenty in store for our membership to keep us busy this month. Our Junior Warden has already brought you the social events for this month. It is my esteemed pleasure to inform you that Masonic information night is Tuesday, February 24 at 7:00 PM. This months CSA will be held on Thursday, February 26th at 7:30 PM. The subject will be Reincarnation and Biocentrism presented by this year’s Master of Southern California Research Lodge, our very own Hollywood Lodge Organist, Bro. Douglas Russell. Thank you very much.

Greetings Brethren and Ladies!
In January the lodge officially started the new Masonic year with our first stated meeting in our new chairs. Our officers began their qualifications cycle on the 20th and last but not least our first event was held at Corbin Bowl on January 24th with a bowling and karaoke party paid for by the lodge!
The installation was a great success and an awesome start for Worshipful Haig’s year. I have no doubt that it will continue to be.
February stated will be held Thursday February 5th. Dinner will start at 6:30 PM followed by the meeting at 7:30 PM. Ladies entertainment will consist of various board and card games.
Annual Sweethearts Dinner!!
Mark your calendars! February brings us the annual Sweethearts’ Dinner! This event will be held in the lodge dining room on Saturday February 21st starting at 6:30 PM. This event is a murder mystery dinner put on by Sharpo Entertainment Productions who always puts on a great show. This is great way to spend the night with someone you love.
