Brethren All………..This is the father of Melissa Shaeffer , please assist if you can and forward to your email lists.                   Bro.Cliff

Dear All,

Our neighbor Guy Burk has been diagnosed with Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). He has already been in the hospital for over five weeks.  Friday he started his second round of chemotherapy because unfortunately the kind they gave him the first time did not work.

We asked if there was anything we could do to help and we were told that Guy has already had 39 blood transfusions and will most likely require many more in the coming weeks.  We all want to be able to do something to help and giving blood is a simple way for all of us to play a part in his recovery.

You can donate blood in his name, and those units (replacement credits) will be applied to his account. This will help to reduce the amount they have to pay for each of the units of blood that he receives.  If you are able to donate blood, Guy and his family would GREATLY appreciate it.  If you have friends that might donate blood, please forward this email to them as well.

You can go to any Carter blood bank, which you can find on their website (www.carterbloodcare.org).
The information you need when donating is the following:

Carter blood bank
Replacement credit

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or call @ 972-429-4844: Pete & Dawn Loughlin

Due to the new blast of ice, and the fact that we do not have a candidate ready for this week, we will not be having lodge on February 10th.  I know many of the roads are clearing up, but the sidewalks are remaining bad.  We would hate to see someone get hurt trying to come to lodge when we had no immediate business.

Stay warm.

February Meetings Update

 Announcements  Comments Off on February Meetings Update
Feb 092011


I was incorrect when I said that we would move our stated meeting to February
10th.  Grand Lodge law and our Bylaws give us the ability to cancel a stated but
not move it.  Therefore, there is no stated meeting for the month of February.

  • We will have called meetings on the 10th and 17th.
  • We will then celebrate Larry Kester’s Golden Trowel on the 24th.

There is also a table lodge at the Museum and Library on February 23rd.  I will
send more details soon.
