Masonic subjects and is known worldwide as a great author and lecturer. I ask all brethren that are in
the area to please make it to this meeting. I assure you that you will learn a lot from this brother.
Our second stated is an open discussion meeting. We will be talking about various
Masonic subjects that the brethren might have, so if you have a question or want to share something to
the craft, please mark your calendars for June 16th. We are planning to have a triple Master Masons
degree on Saturday June 25 at 8 AM, please come out to welcome our new Master Masons.
My brethren, we are very lucky to have a new DeMoly chapter in the 54th Masonic

At our July 21st meeting, we are going to have the members of the Junior Order of
United American Mechanics. Their members will give a presentation of the formation, history, purpose,

August 27th is the One Day Class. Brethren, if you know anyone who is interested in
becoming a Mason, but their schedule won't permit them to advance the regular way, the Grand Master has
set aside August 27, 2005 as the day they can get all three degrees in one day. We will have this class
at Sharon lodge in McLean. All petitions have to be in by July 20th. This is a great opportunity to
increase our membership.
See you in Lodge!
