Greetings From The East
March 2005


As I look back in March, I can safety say that March came in like a lion and left as a lion.  I say a lion to represent the conviction and enthusiasm of our Lodge as we completed an Entered Apprentice Degree on March 4, a Fellow Craft Degree on March 18 and several committee meetings during the month.    

We also found time to visit our brethren at Pikes Peak Lodge #5 (Prince Hall Lodge) and also attended our Job's Daughter Bethel #23 meeting, as well as attending our stated meetings.  These activities are a good sign not only of the dedication of our officers but of the Lodge brethren who also participated in these various events.  

We gained new friends when we visited the Prince Hall Lodge, Pikes Peak Lodge #5, on March 15.  Worshipful Master Arnold Bell introduced us to his Lodge and we felt welcomed by the warn fellowship which resulted during and after the meeting.

Looking forward to April, our calendar is full of activities, with advancements through the Degrees of Masonry and a "Dinner and a Movie" on April 29 at the Masonic Center.  The movie is "National Treasure,"which will be shown in the American Room.  This is open to all, so please invite your family and friends to attend.      

I would like to introduce our Jr. Steward, Pat Quigley.  Br. Pat is new to the officers line and has accepted the responsibility of providing our refreshments on a weekly basis.  As you can tell by our fellowship during refreshments, our refreshments have been great.  Not only does Bro. Pat fulfill his Jr. Steward responsibilities, but he is active in the Masonic ritual work during various degree nights.

Fraternal best wishes,

Vince Anderson, WM
