Brother Colter Hostek is moving to Jackson California and is resigning from our officer’s line. Colter has worked extremely hard and was ready to move up to the Senior Deacon chair. We will miss having Colter at our stated meetings and our practices, it has been my honor and privilege to work with Colter since he joined our lodge. Best of luck young man.
Congratulations and a huge THANK YOU to brother George Sims who stepped up to take Brother Hostek’s place in our officer’s line. Brother Sims recently joined our officer’s line as Junior Steward and has been studying hard during this pandemic. Brother Sims will be ready to hit the ground running when our meetings resume.
More good news, we will have a couple of applications for membership when we return to our meetings. Also, we have a few Brothers who have been cracking the books while this flu thing is going on. Brother Michael Allen is ready to do his EA proficiency, Brother Peter Durgen and Brother Tyler Wilson have been working on their respective proficiencies. Brother Joe Grover has been working on his Master Mason proficiency. Congratulations to you all for your hard work during these strange times.
All your officers will be working in advance stations when we return. (That makes me working on the “retired for the second time” position.
I apologize there is not that much to report, if you know of someone in our lodge who needs assistance or needs someone to talk to, please let me know.

From the Hallboard
Herbert "Tom" Tompkins, PM - President
Greetings from your Hallboard,
Your Hallboard had our first Zoom Meeting and it was a success. Even though there are no meetings at our lodge, there are a few housekeeping items that your Hallboard needed to discuss. The lodge is not charging any of our tenants rent during this flu situation, however, there are still bills that need to be paid. The Hallboard is looking into getting a commercial disinfectant sprayer so the lodge, bathrooms, dining room, kitchen and patio can be disinfected after each use.
The upstairs library is looking to have new carpet and a computer installed. Also, the possibility of extending the heating and air conditioning duct work to include the upstairs library. Secretary Bob Jackson will be getting prices on resurfacing and relining our parking lots to be completed after August 15th.
There are still folks getting in our back-parking lot over the dumpster and then jumping the fence. We need to address this issue soon. (Electrified razor wire comes to mind)
Hopefully, we will be able to meet again soon.
