Please note the trestleboard for the month of June. As always, your attendance and participation are greatly appreciated. Even if you do not take part in the degree work I am sure that you will enjoy yourself and the candidates would appreciate a full Lodgeroom. If you would like to learn a part, come to Lodge any Tuesday or Wednesday night and one of the coaches will be glad to help you.
The Great Light in Masonry tells us that if you possess the world and do not have charity, you have nothing. This year remember the Masonic Home of Virginia in your gifts and wills. Your Masonic Home was originally founded as a home for our orphans. Today we have no orphans at the Home but have indigent aged Masons and Widows. They depend on you and I for everything. Without us they have nothing. Send your check to the Secretary made out to The Masonic Home of Virginia.
May all of you enjoy a safe and pleasant summer.
Sincerely and fraternally,
James B. Stone
