From the East:
Hello to all our Brothers, from New Smyrna Lodge No.149. What happen in September? Well the best thing that happen, was our own D.D.G.M. Glen E. Good, was in the Lodge for his Official Visit to his Home Lodge. There were thirty two (32) Brother Master Masons in the Lodge room to hear him deliver the M.W. Grand Master’s message to the Craft. Thank you all for coming out to show support to R:. W:. Good. We took care of a host of items that needed to be cleared up from Aug. & Sep. We have 5 new men, ready to become E.A.’s coming up soon. We talked about the upcoming M.M. Assoc. Golf Tournament on Nov. 14, 2020 (if you have not signed up yet, it is not too late to do so.) Also, we are working hard on getting ready for our M.M. Outdoor Degree. on Oct. 03, 2020. Please try to come out for this one. You will love it. $10.00 donation and you get food with that also. You can call W:. Brother Will Dishman, for information on both events. at 407-446-2213. We are planning on conferring a F.C. Degree on our 2nd meeting in Oct. 10/19/20. Have you seen our new fire escape? Take a look at it the next time you’re out this way. It looks great and a great job was done on it. That is about it, my Brothers. We Welcome all our new members from Halifax 81.
Come visit your new Lodge.
Till the next time.

FROM THE WEST
Greetings from the West,
If you are unable to drive and would like to come to Lodge let me know. I will see about getting you a ride to the Lodge and home.
Fraternally, Henry Davis, Senior Warden
FROM THE SOUTH
Hello, form the south my Brethren and it has been so great getting back to the brotherly love business that we love so much! I so look forward in working with our new brothers from Halifax and I suspect our new year will be even better as the COVID virus stabilizes. I must say under the direction of our new leadership in the Grand Lodge, our Worshipful Master, and officers we have continued to make this an amazing lodge.
- At our last meeting we elected to move forward with the window replacement of the lodge. There is a 12-14-week delay in the start due to COVID. They also agreed to stage the work, so not to interfere with lodge business.
- We are currently looking into and accepting quotes for replacement of the fire escape door and the surrounding fire rated windows.
- No reported problems.

Brother, due to the merger the dues notices for 2021 will not go out until after October 15th, 2020. The NEW total amount with the donations will be $147.30. The increase is due to the per capita payment to Grand Lodge that was increased $5.00. Letters went out the 1st of October to those Brothers who have not paid their 2020 dues. For those of Halifax Lodge 81 who have not paid your 2020 dues the dues amount will not change until 2021.

New Smyrna Lodge received an email from the Grand Lodge of Florida about an elementary school in Volusia County that needed a new American Flag. New Smyrna Masonic Lodge looked deep in our cabinets and found an American Flag to donate to Pathway Elementary School. Below is R:. W:. Chase and A. J. Winterwerp presenting the flag to the principal of the school.
LODGE HISTORY CONT:
In 1945 Degrees conferred and reinstatements were numerous. The National Department of Defense and Transportation prohibited any meetings of more than 50 persons, consequently the Grand Lodge Communication was canceled. The Sale of $100.00 Life Memberships was terminated on September 1st, 1945, and the money was placed in the “sinking fund.” Eight had been sold. A new roof was installed on the Temple at a cost of $1,325.00. The State Comptroller notified the Lodge that if it continued to rent the Temple for commercial purposes its property tax exemption would be lost. On June 14th, 1946, the Lodge celebrated its 50th year anniversary. Membership was 205, the highest in history to date. Motions prevailed on June 17th, 1946 to raise the fees to $25.00 for each Degree, and that military personnel would again pay dues effective January 1st, 1947. A motion prevailed that the Lodge cash all its War Bonds and pay $3500.00 on the mortgage. TO BE CONTINUED.
