I just wanted to remind you that the cornerstone ceremony for Mendenhall Elementary School is this Saturday, May 21st.  The Schedule is as follows:

12:00  Lunch at Plano Lodge #768 Building
12:45  Open Plano Lodge
1:00  Open representation of Grand Lodge
1:30  Leave for School
2:00  Ceremony at school

As you remember in your obligations and in your degrees, when requested, you should make every effort to complete the errand of a Master Mason, or be there to help when requested.  I am asking that each of you to make time to be at this ceremony.  Attire is suits and White Aprons. This is the first cornerstone that we have done at a school in over 50 years, and if we have a good turnout, we will get another next year.  This increases our visibility within the community and helps to have a good relationship with our schools.

Please make every effort to attend and bring others where you can.
