This month has seemed to just fly by. The lodge has been busy since our last meeting, with the Ronald McDonald Foundation, four investigations and the Spruce Grove clean up. May is looking to be another busy one.
The dinner we did for the Ronald McDonald house went very well. We had 11 members of Baseline out cooking and cleaning. We had nothing but compliments from all who enjoyed the meal. The feeling we all left with that evening is indescribable, best way I can put it is Faith, Hope and Charity. Thank you to all who donated at the last meeting. We were able to raise a majority of the funds for the dinner. A special thanks to W.Bro Ed McLean for organizing it and leading us all in the kitchen.
We have started the Spruce Grove clean up. With only five of us on the first night, we were able to get almost everything done. With only the big parks left we are hoping for more of an attendance so that our task will be finished up in one more evening.
In May we will be having two meetings. For our regular meeting we will have a full agenda. The agenda consists of election of officers, balloting on four applicants. Following the business part of our meeting, we have V.W. Bro. Peter Ebdon doing a piece of education on the linage of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite, from the earliest of times to the present day.
For the emergent meeting we will have Bro. Matt Demers, Bro. Lockyer and Bro. Newton being raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason. Please all come out and show your support.
As you all go about your days and life, always keep in mind that you are all Mason's. People look towards you as a role model and a leader.
ATTRACT WHAT YOU EXPECT
REFLECT WHAT DESIRE
BECOME WHAT YOU RESPECT
MIRROR WHAT YOU ADMIRE
