I hope you’ve all had an excellent week. It was finally nice to see 50 degrees on the old thermometer; spring can’t get here fast enough if you ask me.
The family of Brother Cliff Stark has contacted me. They are planning on a graveside service for him on Saturday, 17 May. They have asked the Lodge to conduct a Masonic service for him at the cemetery. Steve Farner of Smith & Walker is handling the arrangements. I will update you as soon as the plans are finalized.
WB Chris met with both the Woodstock Fire Marshall and Chief this week. It’s been some time since the building was inspected and found to be in compliance. The inspection raised several issues that need to be addressed and we have already remedied a few of them. The balance of the hit list will be taken care of over the next few weeks. Thank you WB Chris for handling this.
This past Thursday evening we had a great planning meeting for the upcoming New England Brotherhood Night. I’m very happy that a plan is in place and am looking forward to the event. If you’d like to help either with the prep on Friday or the remaining prep and service on Saturday please let me know and I’ll put you on the list.
The final details of the Lodge trip to the GWNMM have been worked out and an email has been sent to those who will be traveling, thank you Brothers for participating in this historic trip.
Our next Stated Communication will be this coming Saturday, opening at 10:00am. There will be a speaker from the Connecticut State Police joining us to discuss personal safety and crime trends in our area. Lunch will be served at the conclusion of the meeting consisting of corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots and dessert.
Looking forward to April, our Spring BBQ will be held on April 26th. We will need to prep and smoke in the coming weeks for that event. Please let me know if you’re available to help.
