On August 21st My
family and I went up North to the Masonic home festival. We enjoyed ourselves, and the
grounds are really beautiful. If there are any Brethren that have never been to Franklin,
IN to visit the Masonic Home it would be worth your time to make a visit to the
facilities. They had a lot of arts and crafts as well as Masonic relics.

oyster stew and chili on past masters night. This is a Newburgh Lodge tradition.

Looking From The South
Garry Bradley, Junior Warden
are at the stage of the year again, when we begin to look around and question, "Where
has the time gone?" It is hard to imagine that it is already September and that in
just a few days it will be a new year. There will be many opportunities in the coming year
for you to get involved in your lodge. Some of these opportunities will be large, such as
filling an officers position. Many more will be less demanding, attending the stated
meetings to help conduct the lodges business, attending degree work, especially for
someone that you may not be acquainted with, to support the Craftsmen that are confirming
the degree. These are important things that you can do. Perhaps you will take the time to
become proficient in one of the lectures of the degrees and share in the work. All of this
can be very rewarding for you as an individual and helpful to the officers and the lodge.
As we ponder where we are and where we are going let me take this time to ask you a
question, "What do you plan to do in the coming year?"
Looking From The East
month of September is ending. We have been active in Lodge the most of this Year. There
has been a lot of good that has come out of this year. The one that I would like to bring
to attention is that our Senior Warden Randy Beem had a liver transplant and is doing
great! I personally want to Thank Randy for all the support and work that he has
contribute for Newburgh Lodge. We will be putting a new kitchen floor in soon. This comes
from all the work and support of all the brethren that came out to the Prime Rib Dinner.
Make a commitment to yourselves to attend one of the remaining dates on the Planning
Calendar. You may see a brother that you havent seen in a while or you might get to
see some of the changes that we have made to the Lodge. Congratulations to Charles
Milligan, he has transferred to our Lodge. Hope to see you in Lodge Charles. Please visit
the Newburgh Lodge web site at http://www.mastermason.com/newburgh174/ The site gives
other information such as the dates to all the degree work that we plan as well as all the
other activities in the works.
See You In
WM. Paul E. Rainey
