Happy Fall, Brethren!
Lots going on the next few months, Brethren. Up there on the list is some long-needed renovations to the Lodge interior, focusing on the restrooms and public spaces – Men’s Room, Foyer, Fellowship Hall and Dining Room. We are scheduled to start some of the work soon, so stay tuned for progress. We hope to be complete by the end of October, so be sure to come to the November stated meeting. I can’t guarantee it will all be done by then, but we’ll sure try. Additionally, the Women’s Room is being remodeled by the O.E.S. at their expense.
Speaking of our November stated, we will be welcoming Brother Larry FitzPatrick, former Grand Orator, who will offer up a little enthusiasm on being an Entered Apprentice Mason. Don’t miss it – Larry always puts on a good talk. We will be opening an EA Lodge in November so all EAs are encouraged to attend. Even old crusty Master Mason’s have been enthusiastic about Brother FitzPatrick’s EA talk. December’s guest speakers will be from the Salvation Army, but more on that later.
Thank you to all that supported our 1st annual Lamar Scholarship Award raffle. With the combined efforts of Richardson Masonic Lodge and their friends and family that helped we were able to raise $5,100 (unconfirmed) of which $5,040 will go directly into the Scholarship Fund.
