I just received notice that Brother Roy Glendon Ard entered the Celestial Lodge on July 6, 2015 in Oklahoma. Brother Ard, 90 years old, lived in Willcox, AZ. He was very active in the community serving on the Willcox City Council for 10 years. He also served as Vice Mayor 2004 - 2006. His funeral notice is attached.
With permission from the Worshipful Master Dale Clark, Willcox Lodge #10 will conduct a Masonic service for Brother Ard -- Saturday, August 1, 2015 at the Willcox United Methodist Church beginning at 10:30 AM.
Rest In Peace Brother Ard.

WB Dolan Campbell is in Tucson Medical Center (TMC) anticipating gall bladder surgery tomorrow (Tuesday July 28th). He may be in room BC 2210, not real sure. His son, Grant, and his sister, Vernis, are with him. I'll keep you informed as more information becomes available.
While Safford Lodge 16 is dark for the months of July and August we do have some work to accomplish and some social time to schedule (mark your calendars):
A Fellowcraft Degree has been scheduled for Monday, August 3rd at 7 PM.
And a social time, that we will call "The Cosmos Night," (pot luck dinner - Lodge furnishing the main course) has been scheduled for all Masonic groups and the public for Tuesday evening, August 25, at 6 PM.
WB Philip Rhea and his new bride, Cynthia, will provide music for the occasion and WB John Ratje will provide a PowerPoint program on Astronomy in the Southwest with a brief (faster than light) tour through the Great Architect's Universe.
Family and friends are invited. We might even have time for Brother Benjamin Franklin, one of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, to talk with our newly passed Fellowcraft Brothers (degree on August 3rd). Plan to join us for a great time of fellowship.
Our next stated meeting will be at the usual time: Tuesday, September 1st, at 7 PM.
Clara and Bonnie, we hope the Order of Eastern Star and the Daughters of the American Revolution can join us for the evening festivities.
Have a great summer...
