In the September Trowel, you received a dues notice for 2015. Dues are due one more time before the Endowed Memberships kick in. After this time you will not have to pay dues anymore. Please pay ASAP or you may lose your Endowed Membership.
To date I have received dues for 96 of the 121 Master Masons in Good Standing. That is about 79%. If you have not done so already, please send in your dues ASAP. I don't want to have to suspend anyone for Non Payment of Dues. Thanks.
We have finally arrived at the point in time when we will vote on the merger with Norwood Lodge. This has been a long and sad journey for Hyde Park. We have long been a proud lodge with rich tradition. We have had strong leadership from those who have served as officers and have had many brothers who have distinguished themselves in their service to their country, their communities, and their fellow man. We need to remember that as we move forward and we should not flag in our duties as Masons. As we become brethren of Norwood Lodge or whatever lodge you may prefer, we should continue as we have in the past and be proud members of our new lodge.
We will have elections on Tuesday and we must pay our dues to Hyde Park for a final time. There will still be work to do as we have one candidate with another waiting in the wings. And we will have the duties incumbent on us as we conclude our final chapter as Hyde Park Lodge.
As I was 22 years ago, I am humbled that you have selected me at this time and hope that I have served you and Hyde Park well. I thank all who have taken it upon themselves to help me, from my lodge officers to those who have attended and taken part in our lodge. God bless you all.
Karl P. Power, PM, Worshipful Master
Let me see if I can explain this Merger Procedure one more time. When we merge with Norwood-Winton-Carthage Lodge #576, we will ALL be members of that Lodge. At that time your Endowed membership moves with you to the new Lodge. A merger is the ONLY time you can move an Endowed membership. If, after the merger, you wish to demit to another Lodge, you can do so. You must request a demit from Norwood-Winton-Carthage Lodge #576 and take that demit to the new Lodge for a vote. You have 60 days from the date of the merger to move your Endowed Membership to the Lodge you demit to, but ONLY after that Lodge has accepted your demit. You must write a letter to Grand Lodge requesting that your Endowed Membership be moved from Norwood-Winton-Carthage Lodge #576 to the new Lodge within 60 days of the official merger date.
Any questions, please call me at (513) 769-7070
