Greetings from the East:

On March 14th, we held our Stated Meeting. With Worshipful Brother Mike Cover and Worshipful Brother Steve Mathis away, it was my duty as Jr. Deacon to climb up to the podium in the East. We had very nice letters from three of our Garvin Scholarship Award recipients.

A special St. Patrick's Day dinner of corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, carrots, Irish soda bread and a St. Paddy's Day cake for dessert was prepared by our ladies. It was outstanding and we thank you.

Worshipful Brother Steve Pomerleau has done it again! He purchased a Henry's 'Big Boy Classic', Model H006 - .44 magnum/.44 Special rifle and gave it to us to sell raffle tickets. We have sold almost all of the tickets – well, I say we, but mostly WB Steve has sold almost all of the tickets himself. With all of his contacts and meetings he goes to, he sells to everyone. Tickets are $10 each. We will sell only 500 tickets. We have only a handful of tickets left. We plan at this time to hold the drawing at our December 12th Stated Meeting or sooner.

Call the Lodge (541-469-3454) and talk to Joel or leave a message and get your tickets. Hurry! They are going fast! Compliments of Henry Rifle Co., a key ring, mug and cap will be gifted to the winner of the raffle. M.W.B. Arthur L. Borland, Grand Master of Masons in Oregon will make an Official Visit at our Stated Meeting on May 9th. Our District Deputy, R.W.B. Peter A. Braun, will also be in attendance. They will both expect that we do a great job on ritual. When our Worshipful Master returns, he will be setting up some practice sessions. Everyone please plan to attend. Even if you think there isn't anything for you to do or your part is unimportant, you are wrong. If we are all doing the same thing and the one guy who didn't come to practice does it different, it is very noticeable.
