Master's Jewel      From the East



This coming Stated Meeting, June 3rd, will be the reading of the Grand Lodge Resolutions.  I know that the reading of the resolutions is a less then exciting event when it comes to stated business, but it is a necessary one. For all of the voting members of Robert Burns, if you do not plan on attending the Grand Lodge Annual Communications please fill out your proxy and give it to a member that is going.

I bring this up because there are several key issues being voted on and your input will be critical in deciding how we should vote. For example; should we require Proficiency in Lodge Management for all first-time Worshipful Masters?  Also, allowing Lodges and Masons to attend Church Services, Parades, and Community Events clothed as Masons will be addressed.

Both of these issues will directly affect Robert Burns in the future (we have a line of all first time officers!) and I would like to be able to say that I speak for the members of my Lodge when I vote. So please join us on June 3rd and tell us how you feel on all the proposed resolutions.

"I like people in the cities, in the States and in the Nation to ask themselves now and then: �What can I do for my city?� not �How much can I get out of my city?� I like people to speak now and then in the same devotion to State and Nation, because, after all, my countrymen, whenever a man contributes to the betterment of his community, whenever he contributes to the enlarged influence of his State, whenever he contributes to the greater glory of the Republic and makes it a better place in which to live and in which to invite men to participate and aspire, he contributes to himself as he contributes to the welfare of his fellow men."

Warren G. Harding, 1923
