To the Brethren of Old Colony Lodge
Happy May to all my Brothers, I hope this communication finds you well. I cannot believe that we are already at this point in our Masonic year. This past month we passed two more brothers to the second degree and elected two more gentlemen to start the degrees.
May 4th will be our annual cigar dinner, this is an event I look forward to each year and I hope that it goes well and that we are able to put together at least one scholarship for a deserving High School Senior.
During the month of May I am planning on having Old Colony continue our lodge visitations to the following two lodges:
- Daniel Webster Lodge – Marshfield – Lodge opens at 6:15pm on the second degree and
dinner is at 7pm.
- Brainard Lodge #102 - Connecticut – More details to follow, we will carpool from Old
I thank you all for joining me on these visits. They have been a great experience in spreading the cement of brotherly love and affection.
On Easter Sunday, Old Colony held a blood drive that brought in 17pints of blood for the American Red Cross. We are going to try and set up another for the fall, hopefully we will be able to far surpass this number then.
On Wednesday May 29th the Worshipful Masters Association of Southeastern Massachusetts will be meeting at the Old Colony Masonic Building. Old Colony will be running the bar for this meeting during their dinner and social period. I would like to have at least two brothers volunteer to work the bar. This is a good fund raiser for the lodge. Please contact me if you are interested.
Last but not least, we will be doing the third degree for our newest brothers at our June Meeting. This will be a past masters night, I will be reaching out soon to ask any available past masters to help us on what will be a great night.
