Yes we are in need of every members help. As many of you are aware our roof is leaking and needs attention. We raised money in the past for this worthy cause but unfortunately the Heating/Air Conditioner unit failed. Monies were diverted to replace the unit to keep the lodge open and rented.  Another issue also plaguing our lodge is  “The Homeless”! Yes they are sleeping on our doors steps and littering the grounds. So now in addition to many other needs we have to install fencing and gates. When the litigation regarding the cemetery burial sites is resolved we will have funds to put towards these two projects and maybe room for new carpeting. But all this is going to take funds we do not have at this time. Again we have to count on all the members, annual renters and others for help. Please help your lodge by donating whatever you can spare, $10.00, $20.00 or more. You can mail a check to Suisun Lodge NO. 55, (remember it is non-taxable gift) and noting at the bottom “donation” or use your Iphone App at the very top of this message to submit your donation.

 

AS THE SUN RISES IN THE  EAST……………

 

Brethren,

 

If you have not been to the lodge in a while, rediscover the joy of what drew you to the craft. Joining us by coming out for dinner and sitting in your lodge provides simple pleasure in fellowship with brothers*. 

 

So far we are off to a great start. The year is in full swing and the programs are picking up steam. In the absence of a Junior Warden, the joint teamwork of the Worshipful Master and the Senior Warden performed the First Degree Conferrals.

In the month of January we successfully conducted two initiations upon Bro. Robert Molera and Bro. Pablo Tamoro. Many thanks to WB Joey Bertulfo and Bro. Edgar Bajada who filled in the office of Senior Deacon and Junior Warden station respectively as we all know we don't have a Senior Deacon and a Junior Warden. Last month we received application from a new candidate and two more applicants turned in their petitions. This month a Second Degree Conferral is already scheduled and I am inviting those who are interested to participate in the passing and raising of our incoming candidates. Let us take these conferrals as an opportunity to help our future brothers to become better men. 

 

March 14, 2017. -Stated Meeting & Inspector Official Visit.

*Good fellowship is an important aspect of Masonry. The bonds that unite Masons together grow stronger with each shared moment, event, and discussion.

 

Fraternally,

Bro. Charlie Foronda 

Worshipful Master

PROFICIENCY AND ADVANCEMENT

 

Prior to advancement to the Fellow Craft, or second degree, every Mason in California must be able to answer certain questions and reach a required level of proficiency in the work of the Entered Apprentice degree. The proficiency requirements will be explained in detail by your assigned candidate’s coach, Masonic Formation representative, or the senior warden of your lodge. The purpose of the requirements is to teach each candidate the language of Freemasonry, fix in his memory the teachings and structure of the degree, impress upon his consciousness the different points of the obligation, and to teach the value of our ancient methods of learning and contemplation.

The questions must be answered to the satisfaction of the master and it is highly encouraged that the candidate read his answer to the essay question in open lodge in the form of a brief formal presentation. You will be apprised of all the requirements for advancement to the next degree and suitable assistance will be afforded you to accomplish them.
