Greetings from the East!
I hope Summer has been treating everyone well. I can tell that Fall is approaching as my Masonic calendar is starting to fill up.
First off, I would like to thank all the Brothers that attended Brother Richard Trabert’s funeral and Celebration of Life on Friday, July 30th. It was great to see everyone there and to be able to pay a final farewell to our Brother.
Our plans for the Masonica event on August 28th are all coming together. The speakers, dinner and play are all taken care of, but I know that there will be some last-minute details that we will need help with. If you are available, please reach out to me directly and I’ll put you to work. Also, please reach out to Brothers from other Lodges to let them know about the event. There is a link on the website to RSVP ( http://www.denver5.org/masonica/ ). There is no cost to attend the event and with the attendance capped at 100 people, you will want to make sure that you get signed up!
I’m happy to announce that the Denver Consistory is going to be having a Fall Reunion. This Reunion will take place from November 18-20. If you don’t know what a Reunion is, this is the event that takes place twice each year to confer the Scottish Rite degrees. It is open to all Master Masons in good standing. There hasn’t been an in-person Reunion since the Fall of 2019 due to the pandemic, so it is exciting that this event will be moving forward. If you have any questions about this, you can reach out to me directly.
As I have been laying out the calendar for the remainder of the year, we are going to be doing a lot of degree and proficiency work, so grab your clear text, go sit in the hammock and get to studying. We have a large group of proficient EA’s that are all eager to get passed and raised before the end of the year.
