The July meeting did not see a lot of business. We did have exams returned by our newest Master Mason and Entered Apprentice. Bro. Bell also gave his as well, wanting to have the experience even though he went through the one day class. The trustees contracted to have the sidewalk replaced at the lodge and we now have a nice ramp up to the front door. We also decided to have pancake breakfasts on July 26 and August 2 at the campgrounds at Stonelick lake. They will run from 8 to 10 AM. We are also going to have a Fellowcraft degree at 6:30 PM prior to our next stated meeting. Also, we are planning to have our annual outdoor raising (weather permitting) at 10:00 AM for our stated meeting September 20.

At the June meeting, in addition to the regular business, it was reported by the trustees that they had contracted with a fire extinguisher company to replace and take care of our fire extinguishers to help us meet the requirements of our insurance. They also reported that they had decided that instead of trying to repair the sidewalk out front they will make a ramp up to the front door. This will also help with our insurance.
The awards, widows and family night was a success again this year. There were between 40 and 50 people that attended. There was plenty of food and some awards were presented. Although our 50 year plus members could not be there we did present Bro's. Doug Schmees and Mike Howard 25 year pins. The secretary was also awarded the second John McCollum service award, which is quite an honor. Thanks to Bro. Gene Bell for the pictures below.
