Happy New Year,
A brief update of Golden Compasses Research Lodge.
Several of the officers, elected and appointed have had other obligations develop preventing them from attending the installation on January 16th, next Tuesday. As such I will need to cancel our separate installation meeting scheduled on the 16th. Again, NO INSTALLATION MEETING ON JANUARY 16TH.
Our next schedule Stated meeting is February 6th at 7:00 PM. At that time we will hold our stated meeting and closed installation of officers. I have spoken with Wor. Allmuth and Gomez who both agreed to adjust their calendars for us. Thank you brothers. This actually works out better for many of our officers as well. INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS WILL BE FEBRUARY 6TH AT 7PM.
Following completion of some minor business and our installation we will close lodge and move into the small dining room for a light meal and Festive Board. I have attached a flyer. Please feel free to share the flyer freely. This will be a fun event with brotherhood, toasting, and a wonderful presentation on how to conduct masonic research by MW Brother John Cooper III.
There is no cost however donations will be appreciated to help the lodge defray any meal expenses.
Typically Festive Boards are filled with celebration, fun, and the toasting of many. Please feel free to bring a wine of your choice to share. Fruit juice/Sparkling cider will be provided. After consultation with our inspector, this is permitted since the Festive Board will not be taking place within a tiled lodge and lodge business will be closed at the time of the Festive Board.
Brothers, we are looking forward to a fun evening of celebrating Masonic brotherhood similar to the days of a bygone era. Please RSVP so that we will have enough food.
Fraternally and Sincerely,
Brethren, we had our last Stated Meeting for the year of 2016 and it was a very productive meeting. We held the election of officers and discussed events for the upcoming new year. Worshipful Dusty Deryck discussed the results from Grand Lodge. We discussed arrangements for the installation of officers. Many more interesting topics were discussed as well.
On another exciting note. Grand Master Heisner’s theme for this year, “Celebrating 300 Years: 1717-2017,” honors the tricentennial of Freemasonry – the first grand lodge was established in England on June 24, 1717.
Please spread the word and let other lodges know that we are always looking for active members and visitors to our meetings and events. If you know anyone interested in affiliating with Golden Compasses Research Lodge they can fill out the application and form by CLICKING HERE.
We look forward to seeing you all at the Installation of Officers and the next stated meeting.
Fraternally Greetings, Golden Compasses Research Lodge
