Another month has already passed us by.  This meeting will be our Valentines Day meeting so we urge all of you to bring your significant other to the lodge meeting and enjoy a fine dinner.  A special thank you goes out to Brother Bob Matasich on a fine dinner last month.  Brother Rich did an outstanding job as master of the lodge on his first lodge meeting.  He looked like he has been doing it for years.  January was a busy month with several second degrees and also a first degree.  It was great to see all the people in attendance at the special meetings.  We can sure use the help on the floor.  If anyone is interested in helping out on the floor, we would surely accept your help.  Remember that we all need to help out in order for our lodge to continue to remain strong.  Freemasonry is a fraternity, so remember to help out and show your support for our new brothers being entered into or advanced in the craft.  Every Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM, we are at the lodge and invite anyone of you to come and learn or brush-up on the work to help out our fraternity.

On the 23rd of this month the pin club will confer a 3rd degree.  This is a police officer degree team and is very impressive to watch.  I invite all of you to attend this degree and be amazed at the fine work these men do.  Afterward we will have a snack and fellowship, so donít miss this awesome event.

Also, I would like to include a friendly reminder to remit your 2001 dues if not yet paid.  This will greatly help us out by saving postage and time in contacting you for this oversight.  If you wonder if you should continue to belong to the lodge, just show up at one of our degree nights and see the fine work and effort everyone puts forth on the lodgeís behalf.  I promise you will be impressed and will enjoy the fellowship.

Once again, if you have any questions for which I may assist you, please donít hesitate to contact me.  I promise that if I do not have the answer, I will find it out or direct you to a helpful source.  Always remember that feedback from you is always important, even if itís a complaint.  Without your input, we would not be able to improve anything or continue all the good things we do.
In closing, I would like to take this time to ask all of you to remember all our sick or injured brethren in the craft.  I look forward to seeing you at the February meeting.  Thank you and have a happy and safe month of February.

Sincerely and Fraternally Yours,
Michael S. Mammay Ė Senior Warden
