Spring is finally here and with the improved weather I hope
everybody can come and visit our Lodge. April brings many
visitors to our Lodge; DDGM John Jackson will have his official
visit April 10, 2003 and on April 24, 2003 Charlie’s Angels will
raise our last Fellow Craft to Master Mason.
We have received a
new petition and will vote April 10, 2003. If it's accepted I hope
to have a First Degree May 8, 2003. May
22 will be Past Master Night in the East. If your health
permits please show the support for your Lodge and support your
officers in the up and coming months.
Reminder - if you have forgotten to pay your dues,
please contact the secretary. Steve is shy and doesn’t want to upset
anybody. But don't show up in June without your new dues card
because the Tyler will guard the Door, and he has a big sword."
sorry to say that this month we have to report that two of our
Brethren have gone this way before us. Brother William N. Wedemeyer
was called from labor along with Brother Roy E. Partenheimer.
Unfortunately the family did not contact the lodge till late the
night before the funeral, so no Masonic service was provided. Bro.
Roy Partenheimer Masonic Service was provided by his Grandson Wro.
Bro. Keith Tomazi. I am sorry to say that I did not have the
opportunity to know Bro. Wedemeyer, so I am unable to speak of his
Masonic history. However, I did have the opportunity to know Bro.
Partenheimer, and I am proud to say that he was truly a fine
gentleman and one who did exhibit the true ideals of Masonry.
