This is a friendly reminder that our quarterly Golden Compasses Research Lodge stated meeting will be this coming Tuesday evening, May 1st at 7:00 PM. We are meeting at Natoma Lodge in Folsom.
We will conduct a short business session opening on the first degree. After closing lodge we will retire to the small dining room for discussion of our paper (please see attached) while enjoying dinner. Please feel free to bring your favorite drink to enjoy over dinner and during discussion. Soft drinks will be available.
We will have a casual discussion about the attached paper, "Symbol of the Seven Stars". Please consider preparing for this discussion through conducting a little research of your own about the "seven stars". A simple Google search will produce a good number of sites for you to look through. The discussion will be casual and open to both content, quality, and format of the paper. The objective of the evening is to exercise our critical analysis of research to better help us when we are reading original research and/or conducting our own.
Looking forward to the evening brothers and I hope that you can make it. I have added a few quests to our email list. Please shoot me a quick RSVP so I know how much food to purchase. There is no cost for the dinner however a donation is appreciated to help the lodge offset the cost.
Fraternally and Sincerely,
Master Golden Compasses Research Lodge.
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,
