Greetings from the East:

Since we had very little business to transact or discuss at our Stated Meeting on March 13th, we once again opened and closed in Short Form. The meeting was preceded by a great dinner prepared by our Ladies. I'm sure I don't need to remind you to let these Ladies know how much we truly appreciate the good care they take of us.

*** Our Sr. Deacon, Brother Michael Connelly is conducting a course in the use of the emergency defibrillator we purchased for the sole use of the Lodge. The first class was held on March 13th. The next and last class will be on April 10th at 7 p.m. Our ladies and guests are welcome to attend. ***

The Official Visitation of RWB Peter A. Braun, Deputy Grand Master of District 16, will take place at our Stated Meeting on April 11th.

Please, everyone, brush up on your ritual work. All officers are to wear tuxedoes. As you all know by now, we are still in the process of selling tickets for a Henry's'Golden Boy' .17 HMR Model H004V rifle. The proceeds of this raffle will benefit the Temple Board. The drawing will be held when all 500 tickets have been sold. We are still about 150 tickets short of our goal. Contact HWB Joel Reich at 541-251-3214 for your block of tickets.

WM Mike Cover has been vacationing. During his prolonged absence, I have assumed the gavel and have been presiding in the East. Worshipful Brother Mike has returned tanned and rested and ready to resume his duties at our April 10th Stated Meeting.
