Summer is almost finished and we are preparing to return to Lodge soon. This summer has been a full one beginning with our Annual Surf and Turf Banquet held at the East Greenwich Yacht Club. The Family picnic held in August at Buttonwoods Masonic Youth Center was a success with over one hundred brothers and their families in attendance. The heat was unbearable and many used the pool throughout the day. Special thanks to Junior Warden Richard Gonzalez and his crew, including, Bros. John Paliotta, Hugo Adames, Chris Baker and all the others who lent a helping hand during the day. Those on the grill not only dealt with the heat of the day but that of the grill, cooking all day until the end. Thank you all for what you have done to make this event so successful.
As we approach September and the return to Lodge we begin to work again in the quarries of masonry. The Lodge will participate in the District Deputy’s visitation to Oversea Lodge #40 on September 13, 2016. Our own Lodge will hold its monthly communication on September 21, 2016 with a lecture from R∴W∴Richard Lynch on, “ A Haunted House, A Ghost and A Mason”. A new presentation from Brother Lynch. On September 25, 2106 the Lodge will hold its Annual Worship Service at Hope Congressional Church in East Providence, RI at 10:00 AM. All Brothers are welcomed and encouraged to attend and participate in these events.I look forward to seeing you all in Lodge,
not just now but throughout the year as we prepare to confer the degrees on several candidates. Until then, travel safely.
