Greetings from the East!

Congratulations to Brother Tim McDowel who was raised to the Master Mason degree in Glenwood Springs Lodge No. 65.  I would like to thank Worshipful Brother Chuck Mills and Michael Rotert, J.W. for putting this degree together.  This Master Mason degree was a wonderful experience for both our lodges and I hope we continue to do more in the future with each other!

The Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Campus Golf Tournament at the Wellshire golf course was a huge success!  I would like to thanks Brothers Pablo, Kory, Michael, Brenton, Benny, and Harry for being a part of the D5 golf team and participating to bring brotherly love and help with charity with this fantastic event. The Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Campus picnic will be August 17th from 10AM to 2PM.  It will be at the Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Campus.  Please come and enjoy!

We had a lot of brothers come out to enjoy the July 25th cigar night that was held at the Denver Athletic Club.  It was a wonderful night to catch up with so many brothers, get together for fraternity, and talk masonry.

This summer has hit our fraternity hard with injuries.  Many brothers have had surgeries and physical therapy in order to heal.  Thoughts and prayers to brothers Robert Danko, Greg Atencio, Jim Weekes, Sean Murphy, and Gareth Alexander.  May these brothers and all of our Denver 5 family have a speedy recovery.

“Freemasonry teaches not merely temperance, fortitude, prudence, justice, brotherly love, relief, and truth, but liberty, equality, and fraternity, and it denounces ignorance, superstition, bigotry, lust, tyranny, and despotism.”
