This month, I hope to see us take further steps in the direction of becoming an Observant Lodge. Hopefully all of our Officers will be fully attired in Tails, White Tie & Vest along with white gloves. We should be looking sharp.
Our October Stated Communication is scheduled for Tuesday, October 21st. We will begin with a meal before the meeting. Dinner will be served at 6:30 PM and cost will be approximately $14 per brother. Menu will be emailed once it & cost have been finalized. As always, please contact our Junior Warden, R.·.W.·. Richard Torrey at 315-698-4315 or email@example.com by Saturday, October 18th with your reservation.
Dress code for this & all meetings is Tuxedo or dark suit. Our Meeting will commence at 7:30 PM with a 3 minute silent meditation in the Lodge Room before the Gavel falls to start the Opening.
Our primary item on the Trestleboard for that evening will be the presentation of Service Awards. Those eligible for an award should receive a letter from our Secretary, Gary Heinmiller, with an invitation and details about the evening. Please contact him at 315-622-1167 or firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know if you will be present to receive your award that evening. Remember to contact our Junior Warden, as mentioned previously to make your dinner reservation.
I remind the Officers that if you are not going to be present that you have to notify me and the Secretary in writing, preferably by email - in ADVANCE.
If any Brethren from other lodges would like to visit one of our Communication, I ask that you contact our Secretary in advance for details about our meetings.
