Called Meeting Tuesday April 2, 2013

Tuesday night at 7:00PM is a Called Meeting for the purpose of hearing the Proficiency Examination in the 1st Section of the Entered Apprentice Degree.

Please come out and support this Brother in his work. He has recently joined the military and we are trying our best to get him through his work before he ships out to training.

Supper will be served at 6:00PM. We will practice the Fellowcraft Degree immediately following the proficiency exam.

We need help with making breakfast, setup of the lodge rooms, and clean up afterward. But more importantly, we need your blood donations. Let you friends and family know that we accept and welcome walk-ins. Remember: every donor can save the life of 3 people, and all of the blood collected at our blood drives is credited to the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.

We hope to see you at one or more of these events this week!

Upcoming Calendar

Brethren,
this Tuesday, 3/5/13, we will be holding an Esoteric Study Club. We will share supper at 6:00PM, then retire to either the Lodge room or Motley Hall to practice esoteric work.
We haven’t had an chance to hold a Study Club in a long while, due to all the degree work and practices we’ve had over the past few months, so this will be a great opportunity to dust off your esoteric skills and get back in the swing of things. We are hoping to have at least 3 more Brothers qualify for a GL of Texas Esoteric Certificate this year. Will it be YOU ? Practice makes perfect, so show up and we’ll work on it together, no matter what your current level of expertise. Individual instructors will be available, if needed.

Next Tuesday, 3/12/13, will be the March Stated Meeting. We are scheduled to have a guest speaker bringing a real-life story of organ donations and organ transplant surgery. Our Senior Warden will be running the Lodge meeting that night, so you’ll not want to miss the preview the next year’s Stated Meetings. Supper at 6:00PM.
