Happy 4th of July

Being persuaded that a just application of the principles, on which the Masonic Fraternity is founded, must be promote of private virtue and public prosperity, I shall always be happy to advance the interests of the Society, and to be considered by them as a deserving brother.
Brother George Washington

Everybody really knows what to do to have his life filled with joy. What is it? Quit
hating people; start loving them. Quit being mad at people; start liking them. Quit doing
wrong; quit being filled with fear. Quit thinking about yourself and go out and do
something for other people. Everybody knows what you have to do to be happy. But the
wisdom of the test lies in the final words: If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye
do them.  – Bro. Norman Vincent Peale  

Quote of the Week

Quote

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails Daring Greatly so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

– Bro. Theodore Roosevelt
26th President of the United States
