Harmony Masonic Lodge No.22 A.F.M. News Letter for month of November 2009
WEB Page under construction.


David Scott Spears WM


Brethren, ,

The month of October was a great month. We had the outdoor degree on the 17th. Worshipful Master Clayton Fender of Hardeeville lodge asked the Master of Harmony Lodge 22 if he would preside over the second half of the Master Mason degree. Many thanks to the Worshipful Master and to Hardeeville Lodge and the Masters and Wardens Club for this honor.

We also had a Fellow Craft degree on October 22 with four candidates. Congratulations to those new Fellow Crafts masons. Good job, coaches. Well done! Many thanks also to the lecturers for that degree work.

On October 30, we had a costume party at the lodge with about 26 people, who appeared in wonderful costumes and had a good time. For those of you who missed it, I hope to see you next year. For those who helped set up the lodge for the party with the music and Halloween decorations, many thanks. It would not have been a great party without them.

On February 12 at 6:30, our lodge will be host a Valentineís Day Dinner. Please bring the lady of your life and have fun. Do please call Craig or Darleen Dopson by February 5 for a head count so they can purchase the correct amount of food. This is short notice to you and is my fault for not getting this out to you sooner. So, please call as soon as you can. The Dopsonsí phones are: 843-838-3281 and 843-812-7977 (cell).

What's going on in the month November? On the November 5, we will be having an Entered Apprentice Degree. We hope to see you there. On November 7, we will have the Awards Ceremony and Ladies Luncheon at 12 noon. We will be giving awards to the EMS of the Year and the Mason of the Year.

November 12 is a Regular communication and that is all we have this month, because the holidays are coming and people want to spend time with there families.

Fraternally,

David Spears

Worshipful Master



Brethren,

So much has happened during September and October. Fortunately, the Worshipful Master has covered most of it. Stay tuned for Decembers letter. It should really be full. Until then,

Fraternally,

Outdoor Degree

On October 17, 2009, an event of memorable importance took place at the Huggins Farm in Pritchard-ville, SC. We call it the Outdoor Degree, but Iím sure the five Fellow Crafts who were raised to the sub-lime degree of a Master Mason will remember it as a pivotal event in their lives! A sumptuous picnic was prepared, from soup to nuts, by many willing hands: sausages, potatoes, corn on the cob, shrimp fresh from the sea and freshly fried fish. No bones about it (pun intended), Tarrell Altman is a master fish fryer. Many others, too numerous to mention, contributed of their culinary arts in the way of desserts and other delicacies, for which all who partook are forever grateful!

The cast of characters responsible for the Outdoor Degree include: from Hardeeville, Clayton Fender, WM; David White, SW; Greg Ray, JW; Chuck Stewart, Treasurer; Michael Foote, SD; Curtis McMillan and Craig Scott, Stewards; Howard Harris, JD (Harmony); and Joe Nix, Chaplain (Mt. Moriah). Our own WM, David Spears presided over the second half of the ceremony, while Charlie Spears, our Senior Warden, served as Tiler. Brother John Books of Hardeeville presented the Working Tools and Brother Tarrell Altman of Crocketville presented the lecture and the charge.

Laurence Laughlin, Past Junior Grand Deacon, also of Mt. Moriah, played Jubela; Sonny Gay, Past Grand Steward, of Harmony, played Jubelo; Worshipful Dick Smith of Stafford played Jubelum; and Worshipful Otto Haversat of Unanimity played the Wayfaring Man.

On the humorous side, for your edification and delectation, I offer the following bit of interesting information: one type of column, which we never, ever get to study: the caryatid. A caryatid is a column sculpted in the shape of a woman, in most instances. Now, isnít that a pity!

I came upon this entry in my Websterís while searching for another word to complete Mondayís Beaufort Gazette New York Times Cross-word Puzzle. It just happened to be on the opposite page. Lucky, I guess. Momma always taught me that one could find the most interest-ing words while searching for other words.

Fraternally,
