From the Editor:
On the website there is a link for submissions for events please use this to have items added to the calendar. I would like to limit the items to events directly related to our organizations. If we have a website for a particular group such as blue lodge. it can have separate calendar for event that are afar. I Plan on adding a book review section on Masonic books, anyone that would like to write a book review let me know. A Poem a month and a Joke a month section as well. Over the summer I plan to revamp this trestle board into a PDF file. Please check it out the web address is: http://www.mastermason.com/St_helens_AFAM/index.htm
I will have copies at all AF&AM stated meeting and one posted on the bulletin board.

May 31st Officers Meeting
From the Eastů
The district deputy's official visit will be on may 3rd at which time he will present
A fundraiser is a priority as we will start drawing on our reserves soon. Jim Ziegler is still working on the WiFi tower, which if it comes through, will help. I also think that a fundraiser that actually gets some bodies in the building that are non-masons will raise our visibility in the community and aid our coffers.
see you at the meeting on the third.
From the West...
Well the year is starting to close, only this month and next till we go dark. Assuming I move forward, I have some great Ideas for community involvement. My goal for next year in this order is:
- Finding ways to get St. Helens interested in Masonry
- Finding ways to generate money for the building and projects
- Growing our youth programs trying to restart Demolay in
- And lastly have fun as a Masonic family
I hope that everyone in Shrine, Eastern Star,
I have put into works plans for a Relay for Life dinner. The Idea is to help Relay for Life and make some money for the building fund. This is a great way to get the community into the building. We are hoping to start doing some breakfasts and other events soon.
