Luther B. Turner #732

The East

Fraternal Greetings;

We hope you are having a relaxing and enjoyable summer.  Although the officers of your lodge have been enjoying some much-needed rest and refreshment, planning continues for both the short and long term future.

Our annual golf outing was held on June 17th at Split Rock Golf Club.  As usual the outing was very successful.  The golfers enjoyed a round of golf and a fantastic dinner from Concrete BBQ.

The 300th Anniversary of Modern Day Freemasonry was held on June 24th with a banquet held by the 14th Masonic District at the Aladdin Shrine Center.  A fantastic meal was served followed by a great program.  At the end of the evening the new Masons who met the necessary requirements, including two of our own, were declared proficient.

The Lodge Picnic will take place on Sunday, August 13th at 3pm.  This family event will be held on the lawn of the Lodge this year.  There is a playground next door for the children.  The Lodge will provide meat for the grill.  We are asking everyone to bring a side dish and/or dessert.  Please bring your own beverages (alcoholic beverages will not be permitted inside the building).  It will be a time of food, fellowship and fun.  Let’s all pray for good weather as the event will be held rain or shine.

We will return to the Lodge for our September Stated Meeting.  The attire for the evening will be business casual.  We respectfully request no blue jeans, shorts or tee shirts.  We will be holding Special Meetings in September and October for Degree work.

The officers of Luther B. Turner Lodge are committed to providing strength and support to our Lodge.  Over the coming weeks and months you will hear more about our plans for the future. We’ll touch on every topic from facilities to finance.  I ask all of you to keep an open mind, and open heart and a spirit of commitment and cooperation.

Respectively Submitted,

W.M. John Rumer
