A message from the Worshipful Master

     Greetings and Welcome Brethren to the July Trestleboard!

     I owe a big thank you to those brothers that came out to help support the Lodge's Child ID Program and the Citizenship awards. The success that a Lodge has is truly based upon the efforts of the brothers, and our lodge is fortunate and extremely blessed to have Brothers that pull together. Their efforts make every event successful and I could not do this without them. The usual cast of characters are always picking up the work load and making the lodge successful. Brother's such as Carl, Phil, Bill, Doyle, Joe, John, Wyatt, Tom, Doug, Lynwood, Bennett are just to name a few. Thank you all for your dedication to this Lodge and in always assuring in its' success. This next Message came to me from the West, so I thought I would share it with you all.

     On June 2nd, Manasseh Lodge participated in the Manassas Train Days Event by offiering free Child IDs. Based on the forecast we were not optimistic to hold the event, but on Saturday morning the sun indeed arose in the East and we were greeted by a beautiful morning. Brother Doyle Meadows, who coordinated the event, must have made special arrangements with the Supreme Architect of the Universe to provide the good weather. We had five officers from the Prince William County Sherriff's Office running the computers throughout the day. Even our own Brother, Deputy Sherriff Terry Fernley joined us later in the day to assist. In addition to Brother Doyle Meadows and Phil Sommers who set up the booth, Brothers Rick Norris, RW Carl Dunn and Brother Joe Martinez with daughter Maribel from Manassas Rainbow assisted to sign up children. In total approximately 270 Child IDs were issued. Thank You so much Brother Phil for providing us with all the great details and thank you all for the hard work and dedication to our lodge.
     Brethren on July 21st starting at 11am, the most important event of the year for our District will take place at our very own Lodge. The Official Visit of Most Worshipful Gary Wallace Taylor, the Grand Master of Masons in Virginia, will take place. We will have outdoor games for the whole family and a catered Barbeque lunch at noon. This event is open to everyone so bring your wives, families, widows and friends to this spectacular event. There is no cost for those attending and the dress attire is Summer Casual. This major event is being co-hosted with Districts 2 and 3, so the turn out will be awesome. So come on out and see some old friends and make some new ones!

     Flags will be flown this month on behalf of Worshipful Brother Henry L. Baerenz.

Fraternally, 

Clarence H. Nidell
Worshipful Master
