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!

Congratulations to Brother Charles McKay, Past Master of Plano Masonic Lodge No. 768, on his installation as Worshipful Master of the Texas Lodge of Research on Saturday, March 19, 2016!
Lunch and Plano Lodge hospitality were served up by the Stewards in the North Texas Masonic Historical Museum & Library to an appreciative group of TLR members, their families and friends after the installation ceremony.
The Golden Trowel is a Lodge’s formal recognition of a Brother for his devoted service to Masonic principles in general or to his Lodge. It is intended to recognize the Brother who, year after year, quietly, but actively demonstrates his devotion to the teachings of Masonry without thought of recognition or special honors.
Every Lodge has such members. They spread the living cement that builds our Fraternity into a true brotherhood. You will find them at labor in the kitchens, on the work committees, in public office, on community projects, in service clubs, heavily involved in their church activities and in schools – anywhere that a true and steady hand of assistance is needed.
It is those Master Craftsmen that the Golden Trowel Award is designated as the highest Award a Lodge can bestow an individual member. Only one Golden Trowel Award can be bestowed each year if there is a deserving Mason. This year, we honor one such deserving Mason, Brother Sam Tiner.
Plano Lodge’s Spring Blood Drive is scheduled for Saturday, May 24th (in conjunction with our annual picnic).
Carter BloodCare will have a mobile donation unit at Bob Woodruff Park from 9 AM until 3 PM.
Roll Up Your Sleeves and GIVE!
