The July 2012 issue of The Columns is now available and ready for download. There was no June issue this year. In lieu of publishing The Columns in June, the Lodge opted to place the ad in the Trestleboard section of the local paper as required by the Methodical Digest.
Please note that if you receive email notice of the July issue, you will not receive a copy via US Postal Service mail. Use this link to download: July 2012 Columns

The Pleasants Lodge website recently underwent a mini-makeover. In addition to the new design changes, several sections were added to provide more information about our lodge history, appendant bodies, and past masters. We will continue to provide more information as time permits and hope you enjoy the new content.
Starting 2/19/2012, Pleasants Lodge will send out a weekly email newsletter to the lodge mailing list. The newsletter is not meant to replace “The Columns,” but rather to supplement it. If you have any news, announcements, or other content for the lodge, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The combined February and March columns are now available:
Please be sure to read about the upcoming events such as our February family night out on the town. We look forward to seeing you soon!

In closing, please note that our December 5th officer meeting and ritual school is being replaced by a fraternal visit to Taylor Lodge in Salem. Their stated communication is opening at 6:30PM to allow time for elections and installation of officers.
