Master’s Message – February 2023


Our next Stated communication and dinner will be Wednesday February 8th – As per lodge tradition, it is our night to honor the ladies as we will invite the ladies and guests into the lodge room for our annual Valentines/Sweethearts presentation.

As the Rainbow girls will be joining us, the Feb Stated dinner will NOT include dessert (by design), however the Rainbow girls will be there  to  “auction” off desserts. We will be auctioning off both whole and by slice pies/cakes. The intent for the whole ones is to take home with you (or at least wait until after our Stated meeting to share). If you want, you can always buy a slice for another at your table. So be sure to bring some cash and/or checkbook.   During our Stated, the Rainbow girls will be giving the Ribbon Talk followed by a short presentation.  

I am also pleased to announce that the long-awaited Brunch will kick off on March 11th. This is Sunnyside’s normal Stated meeting date. At this meeting in March, it will also be the Grand Master’s Official Visit. The brunch is free and open to all members and bodies (including their families) that meet in our building. The brunch starts between 11:30 and noon, right after Sunnyside’s Stated meeting. Ladies normally meet at the lodge for fellowship around 9:30am. I do ask that Masons attending the brunch come to Sunnyside’s Stated meeting which starts at 10am.
