Masters Message


    Let us pause for a moment and remember the message of Easter. The resurrection of Christ is reflected in the “changing of the seasons” with the return of life as we witness the beauty of spring. I hope you and your families had a “Happy Easter”.

From the Secretary


Just a friendly reminder, there are still 22 Brothers who have not paid their 2018 dues. Delinquent notices were sent out last month and I want to thank all the Brothers that sent in their dues. It is greatly appreciated. If you have yet to pay your dues, please do so immediately.

Happy Birthday

Thank you to these brothers who have contributed yet another year to the cause of Masonry. We wish you a happy birthday and many more!

Prayer List


Please continue to pray for WB Larry Cauthen, WB Grady Williams and Chris Watson in your daily devotions. Remember to thank the Grand Artificer of the Universe for all the blessings and wonders that he has generously seen fit to bestow upon us all.

“A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity.” (Proverbs 17:17)
