Past Masters' Night 2015

We express our thanks for our Past Master's at every stated meeting.  Their contributions to our Lodge have kept us moving forward through the years.  We cannot quantify their individual efforts but hope that they realize how much they are appreciated.  Please enjoy some photos of our distinguished Past Masters!

A View from the East

Greetings from the East!

I hope that this issue finds you well following the holiday season and the usual cold snap that Ohio has become known for. I am happy to report that your lodge is very busy as we now have ten new candidates since September 2014. This is a very good problem for us and the Craft to have. We will be busy, so now is your chance to see a degree or two. Please brethren, your home away from home is calling you, come and support your officers and these candidates as they progress on their path to light.

Our After Holiday Party was a success as the brethren and their ladies converged on The Market in Rocky River for dinner. There was great food and fantastic company and all left the event full and happy. Our Past Master’s night was also well attended with twenty-nine Past Masters joining us with their ladies for dinner and entertainment that evening. Big thanks to Brother Wurm and his staff for the wonderful dinner and service; you brethren continue to amaze me. That night, our Past Masters were introduced and greeted on the level and I was very happy to shake the hand of brethren whose smile I have not seen in some time. We were all treated to the musical styling of the Four Season, a string quartet from Lakewood High School, and their mix of classical and 90’s rock. We have more fun events in store for you including the Family Potluck and Easter Egg Hunt, Baked Goods Auction and Dining to Donate. Please see our trestle board for updated information.

Brethren, our annual Inspection is set for April 8, 2015 and will be conducted in the Master Mason degree. Your officer and fellow craft teams have been hard at work preparing for this night. I ask that if you are able, please join us that evening, the more Barkley Brethren the better. Please see the trestle board for more information.

Until I see you at the Pillars,

Brad J. Smith

Worshipful Master
