Your frequent appearance at our regular meetings is earnestly solicited.


Brethren,

It is hard to believe that the year is over half way done. Harmony 22 has been very productive this year and I would like to take this moment to welcome all brothers and urge them to come see us in action. We have completed four different degrees, consisting of one Entered Apprentice, two Fellow Crafts, and one Master Mason. On August 12, we will be doing our second Master Mason degree this year, raising three more candidates! We currently have a couple of petitions in the works, a dual membership request, and a couple of affiliations, so our numbers are on the rise.

Lodge attendance has also been on the rise with at least 20 in attendance at most regular communications. The Entered Apprentice degree was outstanding with 43 and WB Laughlin’s Celebration of Life had 85. That is fantastic! Again, please come join us, if you haven’t been in a while. You’re always welcome.

I would like to give a shout out to all the brothers who have assisted in these great endeavors. There are too many to name individually, but again THANK YOU to all.some reduced coverages; this has almost doubled in the last five years.

Now for the down side. In June at our regular communication, per Grand Lodge, we had to publish finances in lodge, along with members who are NPD this year. We had 36 such, but currently are down to approximately 25 and, it is hoped, fewer as the year moves closer to the deadline of October 31. So if you know a brother who needs a reminder, help us out so he will not go NPD. As for finances, we are in the red. If you want to know the particulars, give me a shout and I will explain. At the same time, we have corrected several small issues that have arisen with the buildings and so on. We could also use your help. Donations are always welcome and needed. We trimmed back the insurance policy some this year, but still had an increase to above $4,000 on our annual premium.

Additionally, we are in need of an Operative Mason in the form of a plumber. We have several leaks and drips that need to be corrected before they become serious problems. Remember Brothers, our building is almost 50 years old.

Last but not least: I cannot do this without singling out one brother, but I have to. Please come by the lodge and take a look at the fantastic job that Brother Mark Stokes has done. We found the old window from the downtown lodge, ironically from above his business on Bay Street. He has spent numerous man-hours restoring it. It is now hanging in the dining hall, with a protective covering over the glass. It looks fantastic and is a remembrance of the old lodge.

Again, thank you all for allowing me the privilege of being in the East this year. I invite everyone to come by, visit, and participate. Any ideas, suggestions, or Operative Masons, please contact me at gamecockcop@gmail.com(843) 812-7709.

Fraternally,

Jeff Light, WM
