From the East

Greetings from the East,

My Brothers, the month of January is now history. In that history was our Installation of Officers and the loss of 3 Brothers who passed to the Celestial Lodge above. Brother John William Rogers passed on January 6th, 2018, R:. W:. Harry Rosenthal passed on January 11th, 2018. A Memorial Service was held at our Lodge for R.W. Harry Rosenthal on January 19th, and attended by over 40 Brothers and friends, Brother Seth Rye who had been our Musician and served as the Grand Musician for M:. W:. Steve Boring passed on January 12, 2018. A Memorial Service for Brother Rye will be announced to the Craft when we hear from the family. The loss of these brothers is heartfelt and serves to remind us how close we have all become. The officers have been working on the budget and have budget the money to complete the electrical project and other repairs to the Lodge Building that have been placed on the back burner for some time.  We are very fortunate to have Brothers that are willing to be officers and take on the responsibilities that go along with each position. I have been asked to have the New Smyrna Beach Fire  Department come and instruct our members on the use of the automatic defibrillator.  I am in the process of setting up a time for the Fire Department to come in and train us along with the Eastern Star. We are having practices on Wednesday evenings at 6pm for now along with Daytona 81.  They are practicing for a Entered Apprentice Degree, and we working with our new officers to get them more familiar with their positions. I am planning to have a Fellow Craft Degree on the 2nd meeting in March, 3/19/18. Practice will be starting for this degree soon and any Brothers interested in taking part in this degree should let me know or one of the officers of the Lodge. Brothers, be sure to put March 10th on your calendars, we as a Lodge are visiting The Grand Lodge of Florida in Jacksonville for a tour. We will be leaving New Smyrna Lodge at 9am and lunch will be provided by M:.W:. Lynn, the Grand Secretary, and all are invited. Our northern Brothers are also invited to come. Call or email the Secretary to let us know so M:. W:. Lynn has a count for lunch.

Mark E. King, Worshipful Master



From the West

Greetings My Brothers,

The month of January’s over and February’s upon us.  First things first …., It’s budget time. Your Senior Warden will be presenting the budget at our first Stated Communications in February. Next on the list, we’ll need volunteers to help repair ceilings in the closets upstairs and in the Easters Star’s office. By the first of March we will be replacing the two air conditioners in the kitchen. The Worshipful Master is working on getting the dishwasher repair. Let’s not forget our breakfasts this month. We need volunteers to help with this.
