You have passed your third degree exam and now you are a Master Mason.

So now what?

You have several choices in front of you.

1. Become an officer.

2. Become proficient in ritual work.

3. Move on to the other degrees.

4. Join one of the many other organizations only a Master Mason can join.

5. Or slowly fade away like so many do never to be seen or heard from, except for dues      time.

There are other options but these are the most prevalent.

If you make the fifth choice in this list you will never know any more about Masonry than you know right now. You will never be any use to the fraternity nor will the organization ever be useful to you.

If you stay with one or more of the top four you will learn how a group can act as a team. You will see how much more the team can accomplish than just one person alone.

This does not mean that we are not individuals. Masonry teaches free thinking and this can only be accomplished through self-sufficiency. A determination to be free from all types of restraints is preferred.

Free thinking will open up your thoughts, your hopes, your aspiration. You will be able to express yourself by using your head and embrace those ideas with your heart.

What all of this means is that you should:

Speak with your head

Listen to your heart

And always, always follow your dreams

Upgrading the Water Service to our Rental Trailers



Brothers, W:. Fullerton and W:. Rathman have rented a Ditch Witch and we will be putting in new main lines to give our residents in our trailers the water pressure that they deserve.

With the help of 6 or 7 Brothers this job will be completed on Saturday. The more we have helping the quicker the work goes and the lighter the load. Don’t make the assumption that “someone else” will be there. I know it’s Saturday but this job is very important, would you pay your rent if you couldn’t shower in the place you were renting? The rentals keep our Lodge financed!

We need “all hands on deck” to make this happen. W:. Paul and W:. Mark need our help to get the work of “Our Lodge” done. I’m grateful to them for spearheading this, lets do our part !

Please confirm with either W: Fullerton at 407-494-9062 or W:. Rathman at 407-902-1250.

I know I can count on you!

WM:. Orgaz
