From the East: While we are dark for Labor Day, September brings us several fun events. There will be a Golf Tournament on September 12th at the Jacksonville Beach Golf Course. The proceeds will go toward the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory and the Grand Masters Homecoming. The tournament is still in need of players, sponsors and workers. If you can fill one or more of these needs, contact RW Rudy Boatright. We will host a Family Picnic on Saturday, September 17 th. Hot Dogs, hamburgers and drinks will be provided. Please bring a side dish or dessert and your family and friends. We could also use some outdoor games and activities for the kids. We will be hosting a Widows Luncheon on September 21. Lunch and Music will be provided. There will be a band playing for the event. The Widows Committee could use some help locating some of our widows. If you know of someone that needs to be added, please give one of them a call. We will have an EA Degree on September 26. Richard Bilyard II will be sitting in the East so please help him out with filling the degree team positions.

Secretarys Corner
Well, after I didnt talk about past due dues last month I received six dues payments in the mail. I guess I wont talk about dues again this month. There are still unpaid dues for 2011 but I guess those members dont read the Trestleboard. We are quickly approaching the mail out of the dues notices for 2012. Dont be left out! I still havent found any candidates to be Secretary next year. I hope that we dont have to experiment with a Lodge who has no Secretary. I dont think that would really work very well. We have several candidates for the Three Degrees. I hope we can catch up with them all at the Sept. 26 EA Degree. It would be great if we could find some more Brothers who would step up and help with some of the degree work. We especially need catechism instructors and tutors. There is no better way to learn the work than to teach someone else. It really doesnt take much time and it can be very rewarding. I have changed my primary email address to The old address will still work for a while but I prefer you use the new one. Charlie
