Tidings from the West:
As you all know, next year is our centennial celebration. We will be having a celebratory dinner on February 25th here at the lodge. The Centennial Committee is working hard to plan this event which I know will be a very memorable one. We have come up with a coin which I will propose to the Lodge at our next business meeting for approval. The committee is looking at doing a fundraiser dinner to help raise funds for the initial purchase of the coins. The dinner is still in the planning stages and we hope to have the information out to you all shortly. I wish to thank Bros Ben Johnson and Jean-Marie Pijuan for heading that project up. The committee can always more ideas and help as we progress in the year.
Now a little Masonic history:

August 4th, 1753:
August 27th, 1920:

I hope you all have a safe and happy summer.
Timothy L. Stenner, Senior Warden
