The September 2017 Trestleboard newsletter is now available on the Trestleboard page. Several missing issues were added to the Archives.
Dinner will be served at 6:00 PM and the meeting will begin at 7:00 PM.
This is a great workshop presenting various scenarios that may come up for a Master of the Lodge and how to handle them.
The program focuses on 1) Grand Lodge law, 2) dealing with difficult and unexpected situations as a Lodge officer, and 3) enhancing understanding of symbolic and esoteric aspects of Freemasonry
All Master Masons are encouraged to attend!
