March has proved to be a busy month! We initiated a new brother, raised brother Thomas to the sublime degree of Master Mason, and enjoyed a wonderful ladies night dinner for our stated communication (see photo). We have new degree work to perform, and the lodge is growing. We have one more MM degree to perform this coming Monday the 28th. Dinner will be served at 6pM and the degree will start at 7PM. In addition, our March Night Out on the Town will be at Bad Wolf BBQ on Williamson Road this coming Thursday. Please be sure to look out for your April columns coming in the mail soon. Included in this issue is a list of some upcoming Child ID programs. I look forward to seeing you Monday night for the degree and Thursday for our Night Out.
Rt. Worshipfuls, Worshipfuls, Brethren,
As we go forward into this year with the Child Id Program, I would like to meet with your Lodge Child Id coordinators and anyone else interested in the program (many of you have been instrumental in its success), Tuesday, March 1, at 7:00 P.M, at Pleasants Lodge. My goal is to look at our successes and our shortcomings and see how we go forward from here. In the two short years that we have kicked off the VACHiP here in the 22 district, we have provided over 1200 free kits to families, no small feat for a volunteer organization. If you can not make it please email or call me with any ideas and concerns about the program that you have. I am looking forward to working with you in continuing this program and making it stronger/better.
Please contact Wor. Duffy Ferguson at duffy_ferguson AT yahoo DOT com if you have any questions about our Child ID programs. I can not begin to thank him enough for the outstanding job he has done over the years towards making Pleasants Lodge the leader in the district for the Child ID programs.
On Sept 25th, Pleasants Lodge, brethren from the 22nd Masonic District, and volunteers processed hundreds of Child ID kits at Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke, VA. We would like to thank everyone who helped out to make the day a success!
