The Worshipful Master requests your attendance at our Stated Communication
June 5th, and June 19th, 2017
From the West
Greetings my brothers;
Hello, my Brothers, our Lodge had the privilege of raising 6 Brothers to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason May 13th, 2017. Support came from 7 Lodges in our district making it an outstanding Degree. Many thanks go out to all the Brothers who made this possible, and participated in the Degree. We have Daytona 270 Lodge to thank for lending the costumes for the Degree. This was awesome and made the Degree even more special for the new Brother Master Masons. As you all well know, the Lodge will be dropping down one meeting a month which will be held on the third Monday of the month. This will start in July and run thru September. The Eastern Star Chapter No 3 will be going dark July, August, and September. The Grand Communication is being held in Orlando and is open to all Master Masons. Your lodge officers have made you aware of the proposals to be voted upon, and are going to vote as you have indicated. The Grand Masters official visit is being held on June 24th in Sanford where our own Brother RH. Donald Tucker will be the new DDGM of the 13th district. He is hoping for a good turn out from our Lodge to show support. Worshipful Walter Layton presented Worshipful Bryan Bassett’s daughter with a check for the Melissa Bassett Scholarship in the amount of $2000.00, and one from the same Scholarship for $1000.00 for Kolin Scott Gallaway. The two scholarships were presented at new Smyrna Beach High School. I am hoping to go to New York to see my children and grandchildren over the summer, but the Senior Wardens chair will not be left unattended, nor the duties of my office. I will only be a phone call away. The heat of summer is here my brothers, and the schools are out. Keep a watchful eye out for our children as you travel.

Brothers, if your address, phone No., cell phone No., email address has changed or if you got a new email address or cell phone no. please contact the secretary with the changes. I’m a phone call away and leave a message with the change.
Update on Circumscribe: The year, 2017 was the last year the Lodge will be sending out dues cards. The dues cards will be through Circumscribe for the year 2018. So, all brother who have not signed up for Circumscribe yet, need to do so. If you want help I still have the information on the back of the Trestle Board and any Brother can call the Secretary’s office and leave a message with phone number for me to contact, and get you all registered. The change isn’t coming but is HERE for all of us. You will need an email address.
Even the Trestle Board will be sent to Circumscribe and will be mailed to the Brothers depending on your preference. But it will be a while before the Trestle Board is sent out by Circumscribe.

THE BUILDING OF THE TEMPLE
Continued: On October 18th, 1909, a motion prevailed to accept an offer from the Lowd family to lease the store building at the corner of Julia and Faulkner Streets for three years at $15.00 per month.
January through May of 2010 was spent in refurbishing the new Lodge room. Twenty-five yards of carpet and ten cuspidors were bought. Twenty-five dollars was paid on a “second hand” piano. The first floor of the building was painted and rented to the Foster Company for $12.50 per month. Biological Brothers F. W. Sams, Charles Sams and Murry Sams were all raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason at the same time on September 5th, 1910. There was no discussion regarding the building of a Temple recorded in 1910. Apparently, all plans to raise money had failed. The year 1911 passed in the normal business of the Lodge and it was not until September 4th, of that year that the building of a Temple came up. A Special Communication was called for September 12th. That communication apparently never took place, and there was no further mention of the subject in 1911. The Lodge closed the year with 75 Members.
