From The East - February 2019

Greetings Brethren,

As February arrives we can look back at a great start to our year.

We’ve raised our first candidate of the year as Wor. Bro. Ted Cutts presided in the East as Brother Trevor Cutts received his Master Mason degree to a nearly full Lodge Room. It was a great evening as over 90 Master Masons were present.

Ted was one of 7 in the room who had raised their son – what a great Masonic Family tradition! Senior DeMolays played an important part in the evening as well.

The Fellowcraft Team was almost all Rocky River Lodge members like the old days. It was great to see so many familiar faces back in Lodge. We hope to see you often.

RWB Heib and WB Fletcher, DEO, were in attendance as we honored WB George Mason on receiving his 60-year pin. It was great to see George in Lodge.

As I write this our 43rd Breakfast in the Park will be Sunday. A perfect day is forecast – 20 degrees.

And our third annual range night with nearly 40 members and guests signed up was to have been held on January 31st.

On February 7th we will have an Officer’s Meeting at 700 pm and an Entered Apprentice degree on the 14th. We are moving toward our goal of 10 new Master Masons this year.

Inspection season has begun and we will be traveling to our neighboring Lodges in February and March.

our goal for the year.

Together they will demonstrate this process in the Fellow Craft degree. It should be a very educational program. Dinner will be at 6:30 pm and attire will be business suit

Thursday, April 18, we will be dark for Holy Week. Happy Easter! 

From The East - January 2019

Greetings Brethren,

Installation is behind us and as we move into the New Year we have a busy calendar. 

We Had an MM practice on January 3rd. On January 10th WB Ted Cutts will be in the east for a special MM. I know Ted has reached out to many of you about participating in this special degree. It will be an opportunity for many of you to bring back some of the Rocky River magic for Ted’s son. Dinner is 6:30 pm with Roast Beef. Please call Ted (216) 956-8940 or me at (440) 759-3261 to take a part. We would like to fill all the roles with Rocky River members.
