Several members have expressed concern that the Blood Drive is being held on the same weekend as the third day of the Fall Reunion. I was told, “I’d give, but I’ll be at the Scottish Rite all day.”

Well, here’s your chance to support your lodge, the Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital – and not miss out on the events of Reunion Day 3.

Three Simple Steps:

1. Visit the Plano Donor Center page and schedule your appointment from this link:

Click on one of the links in the calendar to make an appointment – NOTE: You may donate on a SATURDAY or SUNDAY!

2. When you arrive for your appointment, provide the following information to the receptionist upon registration:


SPNID 031053

3. Contact me when you have made your donation and I will add your numbers to the final tally of pints.

Finally brethren, please let me know if you have any friends or family members who are interested in giving on the day of the event (October 26th). I will add them to the list and notify them of an appointment time for their convenience.

As we begin a new Masonic year, I want to thank everyone for their support.  I’m looking forward to continuing the work started by our immediate Past Masters and building upon their foundation.  As many of you know, I am very interested in Masonic education and research.  It is my intent that the Lodge stay busy during the year; if we aren’t conferring a degree, we will be presenting an educational program related to Masonic history, symbolism or research.  I also think that it is important that we provide a good experience for our candidates when conferring degrees.  I strongly encourage everyone interested in working in the degrees to participate in our practice sessions.  If you are interested in taking a part, please see me or Brother Marshall.  I will be coordinating forthcoming activities with the Lodge Officers and will have a detailed presentation for the next Trestleboard.  If anyone has any concerns or request, please see me or either one of the Wardens.
