Kernow Masonic News
 Issue No 8 September 2012
A while ago I was chatting with a couple who are not connected in any way with Freemasonry.During our conversation the gentleman, (a stalwart member of the British Legion), mentioned othercharitable organisations such as the Lions, the Buffs and of course Freemasons. I then proceeded toget on my soapbox and enlighten the couple on our work, part of which is the supply of Teddy Bears
to the various children’s facilities here in Cornwall. At the end of our chat, the lady went to her purse
and gave me a generous donation to help facilitate the supply of Teddy Bears. The gentleman couldnot stress enough how impressed he was with Freemasonry and said he would tell his fellow membersof the Legion how underrated our work is and what tremendous support we giv
e to Cornwall’s
community. How nice to know that we are not always treated with suspicion or doubt, but withgratitude and appreciation. Also, I am sure that by the time this Newsletter goes out, every member of his British Legion will have been made aware of what you all contribute to by being members of theFraternity.

Hair today gone tomorrow
s of St. Luke’s Lodge No. 5371
in Camborne attended a socialevening organised by the Master, W. Bro. Vivian Thomas and his Wife. Aftersaying goodbye to an old friend, W. Bro. Vivian sat down and to a cheeringaudience had his pony tail cut off by the Provincial Grand Master, which wascompleted with skill, dexterity, and dare I say, enthusiasm. W. Bro Vivianmanaged to raise the excellent sum of £737 for the 2013 Festival. Perhapsmany of us would be pleased to have that amount of hair to cut off in the firstplace !
Did you know... ?
That the mission count for Cornwall’s Air Ambulance so far has exceeded 23,000.
That the donations received from Cornwall’s Freemasons since the inception of Little Harbour at St.
Austell has exceeded £43,000.That the Christmas decorations and small presents for patients at the Emergency Department of theRoyal West Cornwall hospital in Penzance are all paid for out of the pockets of the nursing staff there.
A travelling gavel
Presented in 2008 to W. Bro. David Bray of the Three Grand Principles Lodge No. 967 by W. Bro.Jack Treganowan of the Copper County Lodge No. 135 (U.S.A.), the idea of the Travelling Gavel isto encourage visiting between Lodges in the Province of Cornwall. If five or more members from oneLodge arrive at your meeting, they are entitled to claim the Gavel. They then take the Gavel to theirLodge where it is held until another Lodge visits with five or more members and is free to claim it.When you claim the Gavel, add the date, your Lodge name and number to the travel document whichaccompanies the Gavel. This then shows how far the Gavel has travelled. At the present time theGavel is at Truro School Lodge No. 5630. Can
claim it ?
Openness continues
Cornish Acacia Lodge No. 8302 in Hayle recently demonstrated how well the spirit of openness in thecommunity is being received. Young men from the Boys Brigade were invited by W. Bro. Derek Ryder to visit the Masonic Centre in Hayle for a look around and a talk on the work we carry out inthe community. Following the visit a letter was received from Lieutenant Andrew Howell of the 2
Camborne Boys’ Brigade part of which read;
“It was a most interesting and enjoyable insight into
Freemasonry and we feel strongly that it is important for our youngsters to understand a wide rangeof organisations...everyone was struck with the level of support provided for charity and all that 
comes from within the membership...If you ever need a group of young men to help with an event,
 please do not hesitate to ask”
A praiseworthy effort by all at Hayle.Despite the atrocious weather our stand at the Royal Cornwall Show in June received a great deal of 
interest from visitors at the show. Going under the banner of ‘Freemasonry in the community’, our 
representatives received many enquiries from non Masons about our work, and an interestinginterview was given on Radio Cornwall by W. Bro. Roger Freeman. Such was the success thatconsideration is being given for another larger stand next year. Our particular thanks go to W. Bros.Roger Read, Tony Ward, Alan Odgers and Roger Freeman who put in so much time and effort for thisdisplay.
Pedal power rules
 The heavens smiled - for a change - on Saturday 30
June as W. Bro.Richard Knight, PPJGW, and his family/minders set out bright and early tocycle along the 12 mile Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow and back.A band of their supporters from the Molesworth Lodge were on hand to cheerthe
rider’s off on their long ride for charity.
Richard, who has turned 91 years of age, decided as the grand finale to hisyear as Master of the Molesworth Lodge No. 1954 for 2011/12, to leave hismark helping others not as fit or fortunate as himself. One of the charitiesclose to Richard
heart to benefit from the sponsored ride is ArthritisResearch; this charity will receive half of the near £600 raised on that day.Richard
other cha
rity is the 2013 Festival. Richard said, “
This will be agood way to boost the Festival Fund as it nears completion and as good a wayfor me to get fit
ter after the rigours of my year!”Also doing ‘wheelies’ were members of Cothele Lodge No. 2166
in Calstock who cycled from themost westerly Masonic Hall in Penzance to the most easterly Masonic Hall in Calstock.During the long journey the riders visited many Lodges along the way and raised over £1000.There then followed a Bar-B-Q which raised a further £696, all being donated to the Festival.A great effort by all concerned.
Any ideas ?
I have received a letter from Bro. Adam Reece of St. Piran’s
Lodge No. 7620 in Perranporth. Bro.Adam assists children with special needs by musical therapy, and I feel his letter will explain all
am hoping to raise awareness with regard to fundraising for the provision of music therapy in theSpecial Schools throughout Cornwall. The Council has cut all funding for the provision of music. Music is so important, in terms of learning, speech and communication. I am hoping to fundraise for the provision of music in special schools in Cornwall. If anyone knows of any venues that will host anight of live music please let me know, as any funds raised will go directly to the schools for the
 provision of music
Bro. Adam can be contacted by email at; adamreecemusic@yahoo.com
