From the East 
    
Brethren, I apologize to all for the mix up in the February

Trestle-board where some of the pages were printed upside

down. That was an error on my part and not the Crescent

Shrine who prints the trestle-board for us. I failed to print out

a copy of the PDF file before sending it so I did not catch that it had not been formatted correctly for printing, a problem that you cannot catch by viewing the PDF file on the computer screen. Also, those of you receiving the printed version of the trestle-board are receiving it a bit late because the people who do the printing at the Crescent Shrine are on vacation and not getting back until March 7th so the printed version will not go out until approximately March 9th.

     I am writing this just after our Fellowcraft Degree and I have to say that attendance was very disappointing. Excluding the assistant Marshals there were only five brethren on the side line, plus one visitor. I realize everyone is busy and sometimes getting properly clothed and going to Lodge for a meeting or a Degree after work does not always seam appealing , but we should, as Masons, be willing to support the candidates, the officers, and the Lodge on Degree nights by coming out. I am still looking for a couple of non speaking Craftsmen for the Master Mason Degree on March 27th so please let me know if you are willing to step up and assist in “bringing these candidates from darkness to see the Light by which Master Masons work”.

     This month is our Official Visit by the District Deputy Grand Master, RW Henry P. Fratz. We need everyone out to support the officers of the Lodge and assist with the requisite ritual work being exemplified. The DDGM has asked us to exemplify a ballot for membership and the fist half of the Master Mason Degree. This works out well for us since we will have actual candidates to ballot on, and we will be conferring the MM degree on four candidates the following Thursday. 

     The Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of New Jersey is scheduled for April

22nd—24th. As most of you are aware there is a tradition here at Beverly-Riverside Lodge where the Worshipful Master hosts a dinner at a local restaurant in Atlantic City that is open to any member of the Lodge who would like to a3end. The cost of the dinner is paid for by the lodge. In the past we have one or two come down to join the officers who are already there for the annual communication. Attendance is typically limited by the fact that it involves making the drive down to A.C. and back. This year I want to try something that hopefully will make the dinner more accessible. Brother Dave Lynch has a business that runs a bus service for a variety of events and I have spoke to him about hiring one of his buses to take Lodge member

down to the dinner and bring them back. Pickup would be at the Lodge (and possibly also at the Masonic Home if that would be a convenient location for enough people) and the bus would take the brethren down to the restaurant then then bring them back. The cost of the bus, while very reasonable, is not free so more than likely it would be necessary to charge a fee per person - probably $10 to $15. The bus only holds 15 passengers so if you would be interested please contact me directly via telephone or email (see page 11 for info). There will need to be enough interest to make this a viable idea so if I do not get enough of a response I will have

to cancel it.

     Under upcoming events there are a number of things going on that you should have, or put, on your calendar. March 15th is a Lodge cleanup day. The Hall Trustees will be out along with the members of the Fellowcra5 Club to do some cleanup and maintenance in preparation for the St. Patty’s Day party on March 22nd (and to take care of some general items that need to be addressed). Please come out and give us a hand on the 15th —and then come out for the St. Patty's Party! On March 19th the Medford Chapter of OES is holding their Master Mason Night. Dinner will be served at 6pm, the meeting is at 7:30pm, and afterward a professional belly dancer will provide the entertainment. Please join me in supporting Medford Chapter OES as  they host an evening to recognize Master Masons. And don’t forget about our Lodge

Soup Night fundraiser for our education award fund. I am really hoping that many of you will come out and bring your families and make this and make this night as much about fellowship as about fundraising. I am encouraging those of you who do not make it out to Lodge meetings or degrees very o5en to see this as an opportunity to come out and be part of your lodge, to break bread with your brethren while supporting our education award efforts. Please brethren, put this event on your calendar and join us for an evening of good food and fellowship with family and friends.

     Finally brethren, I leave you with a reminder that the announcements of Regular and Emergent Communications that are published in the trestle-board are all a ‘regular summons, coming from a regular and duly constituted Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons - govern yourself accordingly.

     Sincerely & Fraternally,

     Ricky D. Stoneking, WM
