Time and Place

I wish to thank all the Brethren in attendance at January's Stated Communication, as well as, everyone able to attend the first degree initiation on January nineteenth. We have gotten off to a great start and we would truly like to grow the momentum into the coming months. I also thank our Brethren helping with the initiation, without your help, this would not have been possible or successful.

The February stated is on the 4th at 7:00 pm with dinner being served at 6:00 pm. This meeting will offer another perspective of George Washington's life as a Mason and perhaps we will have a couple more proficiencies proved.

Next, Ben Franklin #45 would like to give recognition and thanks to our visiting Brethren from Carson Lodge #1, WM, Chet Hayes, JW, Del Byassee, Historian, Avery Hadley and Washoe #35, PM, Bob Hall and PM, John Reed. With their help, we had a very nice initiation on the 19th and great fellowship afterwards, where our JW served up some very tasty root beer floats.

We are still having work and instruction every Monday at 6:30 and would like leadership from the PM's and help from anybody with the time to give an hour of their time. As always, I am available to provide transportation to and from any of our Communications. Try to give me 24-hours notice and call me at (775) 842-5876. Hope to see all of you soon, my brothers.
