MESSAGE FROM OUR WORSHIPFUL MASTER  

My Brothers,
 
Good day to all! We are about to enter upon an event that will impact not just one but all of us. 
 
Attached you will find the US Navy Norfolk forecast for Hurricane Matthew and the Spaghetti's of all the Global Models. The US Navy forecast has been the most accurate of all the models to date. The probability is fairly high that once the system passes; most individuals will fall into the trap of complacency and forget that a majority of the models show Matthew coming back for a return engagement as a tropical depression. 
 
Many of us have been through this before and either bit the bullet or dodged it. I ask that we all take a moment and reflect upon our situations and remember we are a family and here to assist and help all through this time. 
 
Please keep all our Brothers, their families, first responders and their families, and those who may have lost everything or paid the ultimate price in your prayers.
 
Fraternally,
 
Bill Simone, WM

Brethren

Mentoring this evening(Aug 25th) is cancelled.

The original intention of having mentoring as a regular event was to provide new initiates with masonic education and summary of the degree they just went through..it was also on the schedule to provide some additional learning for any brothers who wanted to attend… Attendance this summer has been extremely light and we don't have any recently initiated passed or raised brothers… With that said we will try the mentoring night again within a week of the next degree to capitalize on the material being fresh in the initiates mind…

The next few months is a good time to tinker with the schedule and see want interests the brethren most.. We all know every element of the masonic journey for all of us is different and lodge leadership will try and find the best balance for the craft..
Thank you have a great weekend

Fraternally,
 
Jeffrey Gamm SW

LINCOLN MEMORIAL PARK CLEANUP

May 21st, 2016    8am – 2pm
3001 NW 46th Street, Miami, FL 33142

 

 
 

 
 

Lincoln Memorial Cemetery presents us the opportunity to exercise the grand Masonic lesson of Charity, a principal tenet of our fraternity.

The cemetery is a historical location that was established in 1924. It was the only location from the Palm Beaches to Key West, where African Americans were allowed to be buried during that era.  It is considered the resting place of an estimated 1 million individuals, many of which, were influential to the community. It is certainly a great possibility that many resting there are connected to us through our unbreakable chain of unity. The now 92 years old cemetery is in need of a considerable amount of repair, from weed pulling and painting, to replacement of name plates. The office building itself needs ceiling tiles, new toilets, and doors. However, we can only attack one thing at a time.

Masonry is truly for the community and not just for its members alone.  I am humbly calling for your assistance to roll up our sleeves and show our dedication to the community.
