November 2020 Trestleboard

Pablo Colomban Events, Master's Message, Trestleboard Tagged

Revised October 30th, 2020

October has been a great month for Denver Freemasonry!  At our first stated communication, we initiated three new brothers in our fraternity.  Many thanks go out to the brethren that participated in the degree work that made the evening a success!  On October 10th we held a charity 5K Run/Walk and Food Drive at Sloan’s Lake in the beautiful fall weather.  Almost 20 brethren, prospects, and family participated and we collected 430 pounds of non-perishable food that we donated to Soldier’s Angels, a non-profit organization that distributes food to needy veterans.  The bulk of Soldier’s Angels work comes around the holidays, so stay tuned for another volunteer opportunity for us to donate our time to help this worthy cause.  I want to recognize Brother Tim McDowell for his efforts putting together the event and finding the veterans charities for us to support this year!  At our second stated communication, we voted on amendments to the Denver #5 by-laws.  Five amendments passed and one was withdrawn so that the Scholarship and Education Committee could refine the amendment and resubmit it to the lodge.

We continue to have an average of 10 prospective members at each of our dinners, which means we’ll have several more initiations to perform over the next 6 months.  That also means we have a great need for brethren to volunteer additional time to be mentors for these new members as they journey through the degrees.  Our posting program continues to be one of the best Denver; however, it takes a lot of time to teach and mentor and the more seasoned Masons we have that can volunteer some time on Wednesday nights, or even to do phone posting, the more we can take off the shoulders of the Posting Committee.  Please contact James Bechtel if you’re interested in helping out with posting.

Due to the increased Covid-19 restrictions, we must wistfully transition our meetings to virtual format for the month of November. We will continue to monitor the situation and transition back to in-person meetings as soon as possible.

Our next virtual communication is on November 5, 2020 at 7:30 pm via Zoom.  This lodge meeting is our annual Heritage Night celebrating the first lodge meeting held in Denver on November 3, 1858.  We will have a guest speaker, WB Patrick Dey, who will be giving a presentation on MW Lawrence N. Greenleaf who was Worshipful Master of Denver #5 in 1866, 1868, and 1869, and Grand Master of Colorado in 1880.  Please RSVP to receive the Zoom meeting information.

Our second virtual communication is on November 19, 2020 at 7:30 pm via Zoom.  Stay tuned for more information.  Please RSVP to receive the Zoom meeting information.

Posting in person will be on a limited basis in order to comply with current restrictions.  Please contact James Bechtel for scheduling.

I pray the Grand Architect of the Universe will guide us through these uncertain times and return us to normal in the near future.

Fraternally,

Kevin Trabert

Greetings from the East,

I continue to be amazed by the quantity of prospective members showing interest in our fraternity.  At our last stated communication, we had 11 prospects join us for dinner (3 of whom have been elected to receive the degrees of masonry).  This proves that even with all of the madness in our society today, there are still men of high caliber that are seeking knowledge and truth and posses a desire to be part of something bigger than themselves.  Although, I shouldn’t be surprised since Freemasonry has thrived for centuries, surviving pandemics, revolutions, world wars, political movements, etc.  I encourage each of you to spend some time with our prospective members sharing about your masonic journey.

During the business meeting at our last stated communication, we caught up on minutes, voted on one petition for membership, and received an update from the Library, Archives & Antiquities committee about our project to digitize our archives.  For education, MWB Claud Dutro gave a presentation on the National Sojourners after which the lodge voted to donate funds to the National Sojourners’ program to send high school students to attend the Youth Leadership Conference at Valley Forge.  The lodge additionally voted to donate funds to Vet Expeditions, a non-profit organization that enables veterans to overcome challenges from their military service through outdoor leadership and community.  Our donation will enable as many as 30 veterans to attend a weekend expedition in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  The lodge also voted to support the Colorado Veterans Project virtual 5K race and food drive.  More details will be published soon, but the 5K walk/run will be open to all lodge members, family, prospects and friends on October 10, 2020.  The lodge will cover the cost of the race; however, we encourage each participant to donate non-perishable food, which we will deliver as a group to a local food bank.

At our next stated communication on September 3, 2020, we will have a discussion on the Landmarks of Freemasonry, hear proficiencies, and discuss more about the Colorado Veterans Project virtual 5K.  Please RSVP for dinner to Brother Michael Rotert, SW.  I hope for a good turn-out for the discussion on the Landmarks as each of us will have different ideas and opinions on the subject.  Additionally, this will be the last meeting for members to submit proposed changes to our bylaws so that we can have 30-day written notice prior to the vote on October 15, 2020.

On September 17, 2020 we will be conducting an Entered Apprentice Degree for three new members.  We would love to have a great turn-out for the degree!  Please RSVP for dinner to Brother Michael Rotert, SW.  If you would like to participate in the degree, please email Brother Michael Rotert, SW.  We will have a practice for the degree on Wednesday, September 9 at 6:30 PM at the lodge.

On September 26, 2020, Kiowa Lodge #116 will be holding their annual Outdoor Master Mason degree.  I’ve challenged two of our newest Fellowcrafts to become proficient in time to be raised during this unique opportunity.  More details will follow.

I look forward to seeing everyone in lodge!

Greetings from the East,

It was great to see several of you in person at our last stated communication!  After several months of being closed, Denver #5 met at the lodge for a stated communication on 7/16.  During the meeting we voted on reinstating one brother, elected a candidate to receive the degrees of masonry, and received two new petitions for membership.  Additionally, we voted to proceed with the first phase of scanning our historical records, heard a Master Mason proficiency, and received three proposed changes to our bylaws.

We will be voting on proposed changes to our bylaws at the stated communication on October 15, 2020.  If there are other proposed changes to the bylaws, they must be presented to the lodge at a stated communication no later than the stated communication on September 3, 2020.  This will allow for the required 30-day written notice before we conduct the vote on October 15, 2020.

At our next stated communication on August 6, 2020, we will be conducting a Fellowcraft Degree for three of our proficient Entered Apprentices.  We would love to have a great turn-out for the degree!  Please RSVP for dinner to Brother Sean Murphy, JW.  If you would like to participate in the degree, please email Brother Michael Rotert, SW.  We will have a practice for the degree on Wednesday, July 29 at 6:30 PM at the lodge.

I look forward to seeing everyone in lodge!

Pablo Colomban Events, Master's Message, Trestleboard Tagged

Greetings from the East,

I want to congratulate Brothers Ray Mistery and Joshua Ruegsegger on being raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason.  This is a monumental occasion in a mason’s life and an experience you’ll seldom forget.  After the degree work, I couldn’t help but think back to when I was raised and what the lessons of the third degree meant to me at the time.  Now, twenty years later, those same lessons seem to have a different, or perhaps, a deeper meaning.  The addition of two decades worth of life experience seems to make the masonic light shine brighter.  This shouldn’t be a surprise since we all know that with age comes wisdom.  However, it is a good reminder that every mason’s journey is unique and that even though we are all exposed to the same light, we will all see it slightly differently.  This diversity is healthy for the craft and helps to cement us together into that sacred band, or society of friends and brothers.

 

Fraternally,

Greetings from the East,

Congratulations brethren!  Your hard work and dedication to the fraternity this past year resulted in Denver Lodge #5 being selected as Lodge of the Year for 2019!  This is the first time we’ve been presented with this esteemed award.  I know we always do great work and will continue to do so in the future!

Last year Denver Lodge #5 voted to sponsor a DeMolay chapter in conjunction with Union Lodge #7.  Denver Chapter’s advisory council has been meeting with a group of young boys that are interested in DeMolay and will become the inaugural members of the chapter.  If you have sons, nephews, grandsons, etc. that are between the ages of 12-21, I encourage you to talk with them about DeMolay and get them to be part of Denver Chapter.  Additionally, we need more members of Denver Lodge #5 to become registered advisors for the chapter.  I know we are all busy, but the DeMolay boys need more advisors that are willing to come to their meetings or activities when available.  Also, you may find that you enjoy being around the boys and mentoring them in the masonic morals that we live our lives by.

How to register as a DeMolay Advisor:

  1. Go to https://escribe.demolay.org/signup-advisor
  2. Fill out the registration form.
    1. Under “Chapter Jurisdiction” choose “Colorado (06000)”.
    2. Under “Chapter” choose “Denver”.
  3. Once logged into eScribe, click on Education  Advisor Training.
  4. Complete all 6 training modules.
  5. Click on Registration  Adult Registration.
  6. Complete the registration including the Background Check and paying the background check fee.

We have a great month of Masonry planned for February.  At our first stated communication on February 6 our own WB Van-Troi Perozo will be guiding us through a discussion on the Kabbalah based on his extensive research on the subject.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm followed by lodge opening at 7:30 pm.  Please RSVP to Brother Sean Murphy, JW.

During our second stated communication on February 20 we will be conferring the Master Mason degree for two of our brethren.  I encourage all our members, especially our Past Masters, to attend this meeting and help with the degree work.  Please let me know if you’d like to do a specific part.  Given the length of the degree, we will open the lodge at 5:30 pm, recess for dinner at 6:30 pm, and then begin degree work at 7:30 pm.  Please RSVP to Brother Sean Murphy, JW.

On February 21st you and your families are invited to watch the DU Pioneers take on Miami (OH) at the DU Magness Arena.  Brother Jon Aderhold has graciously set this up for us again this year.  For tickets please visit click here and use promo code ONEDU.

January 2020 Trestleboard

Pablo Colomban Events, Master's Message, Trestleboard Tagged

Greetings brethren!  I am humbled and honored to have been elected to serve as your Worshipful Master for 2020.  We had a successful Installation of Officers on December 21, 2019 and I congratulate all the new officers and I look forward to working with you during this year as we continue the legacy of Denver Lodge #5 and Colorado Freemasonry.

Lodge is cancelled on January 2 due to the proximity to the New Year’s holiday.

Posting will resume on January 8, and continue Wednesdays at the Welton Masonic Temple at 6:30 pm.  Please reach out to Brother James Bechtel, JD if you have questions about posting. 

Our second stated communication will be on January 16; dinner at 6:30 pm and lodge will open at 7:30 pm.  Please RSVP to Brother Sean Murphy, JW.  During the meeting I will discuss my objectives and committee assignments for the year.  We will also discuss the proposed changes to the Book of Constitutions, install our Senior Deacon, and hear any proficiencies that are ready.

The 159th Annual Grand Lodge Communication will be held on January 23-25 at the Hotel Elegante in Colorado Springs.  The elected officers are required to attend and represent the lodge; however, all proficient Master Masons can attend.  Registration is available on the grand lodge website and is due by January 6.

The theme for this year is “D5 in 2020; a vision for the future”.  While fate provided me with a perfect play on words, it is an excellent reminder to all of us that there is a reason why Freemasonry has spanned multiple centuries and why we are members of Colorado’s oldest lodge.  Our “vision for the future” is one where the members of D5, with professionalism and elegance, set the bar across Colorado Freemasonry to ensure the legacy of our beloved fraternity.  I believe we can accomplish this vision through the following objectives:

  1. Establish enduring relationships within the fraternity and the Denver community.
  2. Maintain our high standards of work while extending our influence in the craft.
  3. Increase member participation at lodge events.
  4. Set the conditions necessary for the next generation of D5 members to continue our legacy.

In addition to our standing committees per the by-laws (Finance, Grievance, Memorial Funds, Scholarship & Education, and Masonic Temple Association) I am appointing special committees for the following topics:

  • Youth:  Continue implementing the sponsorship of Denver Chapter, Order of DeMolay (Objectives 1, 2, 4).
  • Membership & Posting:  Continue and expand our weekly Posting program and increase member participation at lodge events (Objective 3).
  • Visitation: Plan to visit other lodges throughout the year, establishing enduring relationships within the fraternity (Objectives 1, 2, 4).
  • Community Outreach:  Continue our participation and support to local charities (this year I’d like to focus on Veterans charities) and increase our public presence within the Denver community (Objectives 1 & 4).
  • Library, Archives & Antiquities:  Organize, catalog, and disseminate the archives of the lodge (Objective 4).
  • Rod & Gun Club:  Continue fraternal activities outside of stated communications and outside the walls of the lodge building (Objective 3).

I look forward to seeing everyone at our lodge events and spreading the brotherly love that unites us in this wonderful fraternity!

Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was initiated into our craft on May 24th, 1901, passed to the fellowcraft degree on March 5th, 1902, and raised soon afterwards.  His masonic values and dedication to the craft helped him throughout his career:  to be vocal, to give words of wisdom, and help those in need.  When he became Prime Minister, he gave his country and the entire world hope to fight.  He said, “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;  courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”

Greetings from the East!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the most influential composers and musicians of the 18thcentury.  He was a child protégé, playing his violin and keyboards for royalty at the age of 5.  He grew up in Salzburg and later moved to Vienna.  In Vienna, he was admitted as an Entered Apprentice to Zur Wohitatigkeit lodge(Beneficence) on 12/14/1984, passed to his Fellow Craft degree on 1/7/1785, and became a Master Mason shortly thereafter.  Mozart was only a mason for a short period of 7 years.  His time was not wasted, composing many beautiful pieces, including the Masonic funeral music.  His last opera, The Magic Flute, is considered to be strongly influenced by Masonry.

Congratulations to Brothers Richard Melady, Michael Sparrow, and Stephen Carlson to being passed to the Fellow Craft degrees.   Denver Lodge No. 5 had an official visit to Paul Revere No. 130 on February 20th where a presentation on Geometry The Most Revered:  A Look Into The Seven Liberal Art and Sciences were discussed.  Denver Lodge 5 had a social outing with 30 Brothers, Family, and friends enjoyed rooting on the Denver Pioneers hockey team.
