Master’s Message – April 2023


Our next Stated communication and dinner will be Wednesday April 12th with dinner beginning at 6:30pm, Stated at 7:30pm

Our first joint Brunch with Sunnyside kicked off on Saturday March 11th and was a huge success. It was well attended; all bodies who meet at the building were represented. It was also the Grand Master’s Official Visit to Sunnyside and by the end of the day, not only did we leave with full bellies from the awesome brunch and great Fellowship provided, but Washington 46 absconded with a Travelling Gavel.

Another huge success was our hosting of the Basic School of Instruction which was taught by RWB Eric Young and WB Bill Taylor. It was well attended by several lodges and several brethren read for their Basic Proficiency cards.

Our next scheduled visitation will be across the pond at Washington #4, Thursday May 4th with dinner at 6:30pm and the Stated commencing at 7:30pm – rumor has it that there may yet be another Traveling Gavel to obtain. This visitation is open to all members and officers. The location is: American Legion Hall 4607 NE St. James Blvd, Vancouver, WA. Contact me if you need a ride or prefer to carpool.

The Sunnyside Merge is still ongoing. Committees from both lodges have been formed with discussions upcoming. The plan is to read the Resolution in June and vote/adopt in July. More details will be communicated when known.

Torchlight Program or Ritual Practice: Occurs every 3rd Wednesday at 6:30pm.
