Our 150th Year is Underway!
Fellow Craft Degree June 30th
Food & Fellowship Moved to Rincon Mexicano
Due to the weather forecasted for the week of high temps, high humidity, and afternoon/evening storms we are not going to have a picnic meal at the lodge before this degree.

Several Brothers are planning on meeting at Rincon Mexicano next door to RJ Cinema in the Jungle Jim's Plaza between 5:30 and 6 pm. Come early because the degree starts at 7 pm!

Meeting Rules
Post Quarantine:
  • Stay home if you're not feeling well!

  • Stay home if you're at all nervous about being in a room with others

  • The lodge will have facemasks available, but you are encouraged to bring your own if you feel the need

  • Wash your hands regularly- there will be hand sanitizer available and as always soap and hot water!

  • Don't feel the need to shake everybody's hands
We're going to be helping a deserving candidate progress on his Masonic Journey and all Fellow Crafts and Master Masons are encouraged to come out and be a part of this historic evening!

This is the first degree we will be conferring post quarantine and it is for our Inspection Candidate who was ready to return his EA memory work in March and was delayed 3 months by the quarantine! He will be the first candidate to receive all 3 degrees in our sesquicentennial year!

His goal is to be a Master Mason prior to our Reconsecration on September 26th!

By order of the Worshipful Master we will remain in blue jeans and polo shirts until we are finished with our construction and remodeling.

The degree will start at 7 pm.


Lunch Bunch Is Back!
Lunch Bunch returns from quarantine!

If you're ready to enjoy the weekly fellowship of your Brothers bring your lunch, your lawn chair, and drop by J. B. Covert Lodge Garden at 11:30 am weather permitting.

We'll bring along a virtual connection if you're not quite ready to come out to lunch:

Fundraising continues
as building project progresses!
Every member of the lodge received a mailing in the beginning of June with this information and an explanation of why we included the 2021 dues notice.

We've already received nearly 43% of our 2021 dues and a number of donations, but we still need yours!

If you haven't opened that mailing, please take a moment to read it and reply.
At the May Stated Meeting a motion to fix our water problems passed after a detailed plan was presented by the Building Remodeling and Improvement Committee.

You can read more about this plan by checking your mailbox for a special mailing as well as clicking here .

New glass block windows have been installed and the ceiling tiles in the dining room, men's room, and hallway have been removed as we prepare to start the next phase!
You can make a credit card donation right now and pay your 2021 Dues by clicking on this link- Donate to Building Campaign
Thank you to the numerous Brothers who have donated Time, Talent, & Treasure already!

We have already received over $13,000 and nearly 150 man hours of volunteer time!
Buy an engraved brick!
A part of the fundraising for this campaign will include a limited edition engraved brick which will be installed in our new patio area.

There are 3 different sizes of bricks available for purchase:

Small 4”x 8” for $100

Medium 8” x 8” for $250

Large 12” x 12” for $500

You can memorialize members of your family in this area that will soon become a favorite hangout for lodge members and their families!

Remember there are 3 basic types of Masons - Active - Practicing - Sustaining . We need all members to try and be members of 2 of the types simultaneously! Active members are the Brothers who are at every meeting or taking on a committee/officer roll. Practicing are Masons who make a conscious effort daily to live the lessons of our ritual in their daily lives. Sustaining members are those who donate to the lodge operations on top of or in lieu of being able to actively participate. Masonry thrives on Time-Talent-Treasure and we’re asking you to consider donating at least two of the three as we start our next 150 years!
