Greetings from the East, Brethren:

April was a busy month for St. Albans Lodge. We conferred the 1st Degree on our newest Brothers, Brother David Patrick Castles, and Brother Graham Lewis. They will be known from now on as the Worshipful Samuel Druce class. Wor. Druce was the second Worshipful Master of St. Albans, in 1821.

Square and Compass day was well represented by the members of the Lodge, but saw few potential Brothers come through the door. The good news was the Lodge made a good amount of money from the Yard Sale we held that same day.

Thank you to those who attended Brother William Godfrey’s Masonic Memorial Services. A special thank you goes out to the Officers who presided over the ceremony.

Thank you to the Officers who attended Exemplification. I am told St. Albans performed in exemplary fashion, as usual.

May’s meeting will be on May 13th, which is the second Tuesday of the month. This is due to the Annual Town Meeting in Foxboro on our regular meeting night. We will be conferring the 2nd Degree on our newest Brothers.

June will be on our regular meeting night, June 9th. We will confer the 3rd Degree that evening, during a “Past Masters Night”. We have a few Past Masters already enlisted to take on a part. We still need a few more. Please let it be known if you are able to help out.

We will also be voting for a new slate of Officers for next year.

Lastly, we will be having a discussion on two important matters regarding St. Albans:

  1. Raising Lodge dues to keep St. Albans in good/better financial standing.
  2. Discussing outstanding dues, and consequences for failure to pay.

June’s two big entertainment events are:

The Paw Sox Game on June 12th. Please see Brother Greg Wood for details.

Founders Day Parade on June 7th. I am sending the paperwork in this week to march in the parade. Should St. Albans have a booth at the playground that day as well, we would need volunteers to man the table that day.


See you all soon,

Wor. Jon Schulhaus
