From the Secretary:
We have received a formal letter from the Grand Master that Masons in this jurisdiction are to give no official support to an email circulating from a pseudonym "Hiram Abiff" regarding the Grand Lodge Building.
Instead, The Grand Master has sent a three page summary of findings and actions taken regarding the same to be read aloud at the next Stated Meeting. I intend to scan it in and email it to our electronic mailing list for you out-of-towners. The rest of you brothers ought to show up.
Our per Capita costs to the Grand Lodge were in excess of $4,500 but thanks to our brothers who have sent in their dues and a roll over from last year, we can handle this without serious impact to the budget for the year. Good job!
Do you have an event going on from which you would like to see photos posted to the website? Our Lodge Photographer, Mark K. Johnson 954-0206, might be able to help.

Greetings Brethren, near and far.
Brethren, it looks like the year is off to a fine start.
We have just conferred two Second Degrees, passing Brothers George Chardukian and Jonathan Blank to Fellowcraft.
A successful Officers meeting was held and your Lodge Officers contributed many ideas on exciting events for Marion McDaniel Lodge to be involved in this year.
Everything from a Chili Cook-Off for the chefs in our midst to an Ugly Tie contest in which the legendary necktie owned by our Worshipful Treasurer will be challenged and perhaps bested.
I urge one and all to be there for the fun.

Exhausted from coordinating the double Fellowcraft Degrees just held, our SW is taking a busboy's holiday for this issue.
(Yes, I know, but if you are familiar with his line of work, it makes for a good joke.)
Sincerely and Fraternally,
Charles R. Barnes PM

(Would have had something in but as I understand it, he wound up rebooting the credisfranz and resetting the hoploggen, apparently a very time-consuming computer business.
I would have helped but the Worshipful Master's Wife, Ann, has instructed me to NEVER open the back of the computer. I'm going to do it, I AM!, one of these days.
I want to see what happens if I stick a little screwdriver in that power supply thingy.)
Sincerely and Fraternally,
BR John C. Cayce
Remember, YOU Are The Lodge, Bring It Back HOME!
