Hello again from the REAL NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, Fort Crook Lodge #250.
I must apologize for missing last months deadline for the Trestleboard, poop happens and my mind does not keep me informed as well as it used to!!
We have had a great summer time here in the Intermountain area and a busy one too. on August the 11th we had our annual picnic at the Intermountain Fair Grounds which was very well attended, great food and fellowship. At this event our Inspector Worshipful Tom Good and Worshipful Larry Hawthorne PM presented two worthy brothers with very prestigious awards. Worshipful Fred Urbanek received his Golden Veteran award for 50 years in Masonry. Our long time Tyler, Don Smith was presented the Hiram Award for his valuable service to the Lodge and Intermountain Community. Congratulations to both Brothers. Flowers were presented to the Ladies of both by Master of the Lodge, Worshipful Jim Crockett PM who also gave a Masonic Ladies Pin to each of the ladies attending the picnic. Along side of each Mason there is a wonderful woman to support their efforts.
On August 24 we initiated Brother Steven Powell into the Masonic Family as our newest Entered Apprentice Mason. Long Form Lecture was again delivered impeccably by none other than Worshipful Larry Hawthorne PM. Congratulations to Brother Steven. We are looking forward to your journey through the Degrees of Masonry.
Saturday August 24 was a special day for me as Master of the Lodge and a Funeral Master. I Officiated at Brother John McArthurs (a Diamond Jubilee 75 year Mason) Masonic Funeral Service in the morning and Initiated Brother Steven in the afternoon. The end of one Masonic Journey and the beginning of another.
We will again be providing parking assistance for the Pioneer Day celebration at the Fort Crook Museum in Fall River Mills on Saturday the 21st of September.
Our Lodge, through its members, has been contacted by two local men inquiring about how to become a Mason. We are actively pursuing their interest an hopefully they will petition for the Degrees in Masonry.
Well the weather is changing. Cooler temperatures are coming. Winter is just around the corner. Fort Crook Lodge is heating up. Degrees are coming. New membership is on the horizon. Stay tuned.
Elected annually at the November Stated Meeting, our officers work together for you.
