About this Trestle Board  

This is the first trestleboard for 2019 and several items, not usually found, are included.  We are including the 2019 Lodge Committees and the 2019 feed committees Listings. We hope you will read this newsletter and receive some inspiration and some insight to the lodge.  You may feel that our communication is not adequate.  In this vein we initiated the one call now program.  If you are not getting calls from the lodge and you wish to do so, please see the contact info in this trestleboard.  We only call if there is information to pass along about events affecting the lodge.

Brothers, the dues cards are in the hands of the secretary and are available. Remember dues are due and payable prior to January 1, 2019. Dues for the year continue to be $90.00. Living your life as a mason helps to keep masonry alive and well in the lodge, in the community and in our country where the qualities of masonry are so much in need.

You may pay your membership dues at anytime by clicking on the "Donate Button" on the bottom of each page. Once it carries you to our pay pal account, please enter the amount for your dues. Please remember when you are paying online to add a extra $4.00 to cover for transferring to our account from PayPal. Should you have any questions please contact Lynn Hill or Danny Davis.


Bro Claude Davis, WB Lynn Hill continue to need our prayers.  We lost two of our members this year.  WB Ken Tyndall, Past Master and Honorary member and Brother Edward Lee Small of Newport both passed in January 2019.  Both these families need our remembrance during this time of loss.  If you or if you know of a brother who needs our thoughts and prayers, please let me know.
