Thursday, May 20, 2021: Stated Meeting

Twenty-six members and visitors attended Gulf Beach Lodge last night and enjoyed some wonderful Masonry!  Here’s what was accomplished:

  • Prior to the meeting the brothers wished W∴ Mark-Sawa-Szostak a happy birthday and presented him a cake and a hearty round of ‘Happy Birthday’.
  • Two first-time visitors were introduced, one from Gainesville, Florida, the other from Missouri.
  • Cards and/or flowers were sent to our sick and distressed brothers.
  • Brother Brian Marshall was presented his Master Mason Certificate by the Master (Photo above Left).
  • W∴ Chris Bates, sitting Master at R.T. Schafer Lodge No. 350 in Gainesville Florida, accepted a seat in the East with our Worshipful Master (Photo above Right).
  • A Petition was read for the Three Symbolic Degrees of Freemasonry.
  • The craft donated $150.00 to the Heaven on Earth for Veterans
  • Brother Tim Delaney gave Masonic Education on Ecclesiastes 12: 1-7, which was very well received.
  • R∴W∴ Howard Knapp gave the closing charge

Join us next week for an informal, casual and non-tiled meeting. The Master will give an over-view of the proposed Grand Lodge legislation.
