Master’s Message – January 2018


Peace and Harmony,

As I write my first message, I cannot help thinking how our Lodge has grown over the last few years. We are progress not perfection as we continue moving in the right direction. I am inspired by the increased positive energy exhibited in our Lodge. Thank you W.B. Ray Siecinski for your tireless effort to keep us moving forward.

Looking to the new year, we have much to be thankful for. After welcoming Azure Masada into our home a year ago, our Lodges are working more closely with each other. Many of the area appendant bodies are coming back to our Lodge. Welcoming these brothers into our home will only strengthen our Lodge.

Our fraternity’s strength comes from each other. As Master Masons, we have brothers all over the world who are friends at first sight. Wherever we come from, we are like minded people who have taken the same oaths and believe in the same values. The opening of every communication stresses unity, peace and harmony. These qualities separate us from other fraternities and are the secret to out longevity and strength of our fraternity.

John C. Richards
Worshipful Master

Ten Master Masons, A Poem


Ten Master Masons
By: Anonymous

Ten Master Masons, happy, doing fine;
One listened to a rumor, then there were nine.

Nine Master Masons, faithful, never late;
One didn’t like the “Master”, then there were eight.

Eight Master Masons, on their way to heaven;
One joined too many clubs, then there were seven.

Seven Master Masons, life dealt some hard licks;
One grew discouraged, then there were six.

Six Master Masons, all very much alive;
One lost his interest, then there were five.

Five Master Masons, wishing there were more;
Got into a great dispute, then there were four.

Four Master Masons, busy as could be;
One didn’t like the programs, then there were three.

Three Master Masons, was one of them you?
One grew tired of all the work, then there were two.

Two Master Masons with so much to be done;
One said “What’s the use”, then there was one.

One Master Mason, found a brother – true!
Brought him to the Lodge, then there were two.

Two Master Masons didn’t find work a bore;
Each brought another, then there were four.

Four Master Masons saved their Lodge’s fate;
By showing others kindness, then there were eight.

Eight Master Masons, loving their Lodge’s bright sheen;
Talked so much about it, they soon counted sixteen.

Sixteen Master Masons, to their obligations true;
Were pleased when their number went to thirty-two.

So we can’t put our troubles at the Lodge’s door;
It’s our fault for harming the Lodge we adore.

Don’t fuss about the programs or the “Master” in the East;
Keep your obligation by serving even the very least.
