No Meeting on March 19th

StairsBrother, take note.  We’ll have the first Stated Meeting on March 5th, but not the second Stated Meeting on March 19th.   Festivities related to the 159th Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge begin Thursday, March 19th and most of us will be in Topeka helping set up for the event.

The Grand Master, Michael A. Halleran, has proudly granted special dispensation for the “Grand Masters’ Own”.

Please join your brethren in Topeka for the Annual Communication.  If you haven’t registered, look in the last edition of The Kansas Mason for the registration information and get that done right away.  You won’t want to miss the biggest Masonic event of the year.

Change for Thursday, February 19 Stated

Brothers, Our work section for Thursday’s meeting is being postponed until a later date due to a funeral in the family of our Brother FC Mike Kwiatkowski. Our prayers go out to his family. Our normal stated meeting will take place at its normally scheduled time. We will open on the First Degree.

If I have a volunteer for refreshments please let our JW know. As a reminder we will be listening to the proposed by-law changes located for your convenience in the Kansas Mason magazine. Our meeting time has been reduced to this unforseen change. If someone has a well prepared education piece to share send me your ideas. Please remember to bring some canned food items to donate to those in need. Thank you.Master's Chair

Jerry B Osborne Jr., W.M.
