Brethren,

Plano Lodge is having a night honoring Gene Reynolds this Thursday, March 24th, with dinner at 6:00 and program at 7:00.  As Gene has been a very involved mason in the area for a long time, we would love for any and all friends to please come and celebrate our good friend and wish him well on his new adventure in Seguin, TX.  This is an open meeting.

We look forward to seeing you as we celebrate our friend and brother.  After we are done, we will retire to a nearby establishment for other refreshments.

Fraternally,

Adam DeMasellis
Worshipful Master, Plano Lodge #768

Brethren,

Since we are at the mercy of many other people, the cornerstone has been
re-scheduled for May 21st at 2:00 p.m.  I received a call from Grand Lodge on
Friday saying that since the event at the Masonic oak is on Sunday the 15th, the
Grand Lodge Officers were now going down on 14th and would be unavailable.

Thus after checking with the school district and the back with Grand Lodge, the
ceremony will be on the 21st at 2:00 p.m.

On March 31st, after dinner, we will be having a large planning meeting where we
will plan the details of the cornerstone, our picnic on May 7th, and the Blood
Drive.

Please let me know if you would like an role in any of the upcoming events.

Fraternally,

Adam DeMasellis
Worshipful Master, Plano Masonic Lodge #768

March stated meeting started with a great dinner by the Stewards.  Thank you for all your efforts to keep hunger amongst the brethren at bay!

March was also our official visit by the DDGM to Plano Lodge.  We always welcome our DDGM, Right Worshipful Gerald Jones.

The meeting started in the usual manner.  There were 38 members in attendance, including 10 past masters.

We missed February’s stated meeting, so minutes were read from January.

In February we presented Br. Larry Kester with the Golden Trowel award from Plano Lodge.  A very deserving brother indeed!

Monday, March 28th is our next scheduled Morals & Dogma study night at the Museum & Library.

May 14th is our scheduled Corner Stone Ceremony at Mendenhall Elementary.

  • Time is TBD.
  • We will have the stone in the Museum for a month prior to the ceremony.
