From the East....
Summer has passed us by and the end of the year rapidly approaches. We have survived an eclipse of the sun (to the best of my knowledge, Daren and Betsy are the only ones amongst us who viewed it in it's totality).
The largest crisis of nature has just occurred in Texas. (Everything is bigger in Texas, even floods.) There will be many severely damaged Masonic edifices throughout the region and many Brothers from our craft will have to rebuild their homes and their lives. You can help them out by donating to: Masonic Service Association of North America
September 8 we will be presenting the first of a three part series by Dr Jordan Peterson, entitled "Maps of Meanings". Daren promises that it will be thought provoking.
On September 16, we will be presenting the prestigious Hiram Award to one of our Past Masters, David Forsyth. We have been very honored to have had the pleasure to with Worshipful Forsyth. You have probably heard the phrase "Masonry makes good men better". This is because we have men like David around us. Please make a reservation to join us in honoring this distinguished Brother.
For those of you who joined us on the Dinner Cruise on the Bay, thank you. It was a very special night. For the first time, we actually sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge. In addition to our Lodge members and guests, we had the Master of Acalanes Fellowship Lodge and brethren from Burlingame and Marin Lodges and a brother who belongs to seven Lodges in San Francisco.
Sincerely and Fraternally.
Tim World, P.M.
