WM: Craig Camens
Meetings: 1st & 3rd Wed. 7:00 PM
Cortland Lodge has had a busy year so far and would like to invite all the brothers from the district to attend our annual inspection on Saturday Feb. 9. We will have a hearty breakfast at 8:00 a.m. and the Inspection will start promptly at 9:00 a.m. We will be inspected in the fellow craft degree so please add this to your schedule as we would like to see all of you.
Now on with the news. Recently we took a trip to visit our brothers at Rockton Lodge #316 in Kent. While it is always a treat to tour their beautiful lodge, which is steeped in history, we also had an ulterior motive. We traveled to bring back the “Kenny Gifford” traveling gavel to this side of the district. We thank all the brothers from Rockton lodge for their hospitality and great fellowship and hope to see you at the upcoming inspections throughout the district.
This gavel is never meant to be retained by the same lodge forever. But instead to help to promote fellowship and a healthy competition between our lodges. As you must have your complete officer line to visit and close the lodge to get it. It is not an easy task to grab the gavel. We welcome the opportunity to see other lodges come to Cortland Lodge and snatch the gavel for themselves. If you would like to come and get it. Please contact me on my cell or email.
