The Secretary’s Desk

Brothers,

I want to thank you all for the vote of confidence in me to fill such great shoes as our past Secretary, Worshipful Brother Will Sanders has done for so many years.  Please keep him in your prayers along with his wife and family.  Our past secretary is not in good health at all and he needs our prayers!

Just as a “head’s up!” I recently had to suspend three brothers for non-payment of dues, which I hated to do.  Please Brothers, during the year please do not neglect to pay your 2020 dues.

Also as a reminder, please note the dates we have listed on our Lodge calendar.

We have five candidates we are investigating now, and we have four other petitions out for other candidates that are seeking admission.  What a great way to start a new Masonic year!

Fraternally,

W⸫ Bill Watson, PM

Brothers,

The year is starting very good with four new Master Masons and two new Fellowcraft.  It would be great if you could put Duval Lodge on your calendar and attend some of these meetings.  Let us hear from you!  Come and support the Lodge and our new brothers!

Yours in Faith,

W⸫ Willard O. Sanders, PM

My Brothers,

So far we are having a very good year!

We have four Entered Apprentices coming along and we will have three new Master Masons raised this month. They will be raised at Arlington Lodge on 25 April, 2017. Please come have dinner and enjoy seeing your new brothers raised.

On a not so good note, we still have brothers who have not paid their dues for this year. Late notices have been sent. Your Lodge dues pay to keep the lights and water on, along with other bills when due. Please remember you Lodge and your obligation.

Become active in your Lodge and you will be surprised how good you will feel.

Yours in Faith,

W⸫ Will Sanders, PM

My Brothers,

There are two things essential in the proper running of your Lodge: dues and bodies in the seats at every meeting.  Without your timely payment of dues, we cannot pay our fiscal obligations.  Without you in the Lodge, we cannot properly maintain Lodge business.  If you have not as yet paid your 2017 dues, please do so at your earliest convenience.

On a somber note, as reported in the last Trestle Board, we lost two of our “50 Plus” members to the Celestial Lodge.  I ask the brethren to pray for us all.

Please come, fill a seat and enjoy the fellowship!

I hope to see more of you in Lodge!

Yours in Faith,

W⸫ Will Sanders, PM
Secretary
