Brethren we are already into autumn! This year seems shorter than most. And before we know it, a new Masonic year will be here. With that said I would like to thank everyone for their assistance as well as the nice attendance among brethren, family and friends that we have received.

On the 4th of September, Trinity Lodge held our annual Memorial Service and Awards Night. We had a nice Dinner at 6:30 p.m. prepared by Ill. Bro.Bill Stratton 33rd and his crew. Again thank you.

The Awards were presented by R.W.Bro. Stephen A. Colton, R.W.Bro. Steven S. DeNayer with Wor. Master, Reid McLeod assisting. We congratulate the following for their years of membership: Brothers, Robert L. Morgan and William R. Ramsey, 60 Years; Brothers, James R. Broad, Jerald D. Eppy, Edward C. Streling, Michael E. Toney and Louis S. VanSlyck, 55 Years; Brothers, Thomas A. Love, Thurman S. Miller and Dale E. Walters Sr., 50 Years; Brothers, Edward J. Lantz and Clyde L. Roberts, 45 Years; Brothers, James W. Abbot, Paul C. Critean and Richard H. Smyser II, 40 Years; Brothers, Steven S. DeNayer and Edward L. Radel Jr., 35 Years; Brother Dale W. Hossler, 30 Years and Brothers, Steven L. Fettman and Ronald G. Waltz, 25 Years. Congratulations to all these brethren and all they have done for Masonry.

Our Memorial Service was held shortly after to honor the loving memory of our departed. Brethren: Kenneth E. Sauter, George B. Bayless, Robert C. Parks, Henry J. Beitler, Richard R. Hinterieiter, Edwin Gintling, Robert Weintraub, Richard H. Smyser, Wor. Bro. Jack D. Kull and Brother Ricky A. McLeod, were all remembered at the Altar of Masonry.

Our September 18th meeting had Wor. Bro. Thomas Young, L.E.O., presenting his last Lodge Educational Lecture for this Masonic year. Thank you Tom for all the work you have done this year.

Now for the Trestle Board: Thursday, October 2nd, we will have our Stated Meeting and also a visitation from the Jobs Daughters. Brethren please come out and see the hard work these young ladies strive for and continue to accomplish.

Our Thursday, October 16th Meeting will be our annual Past Masters Night. These Past Masters always assist us in order for the officers to attend Grand Lodge that evening. They are still the knowledge and history of Trinity Lodge and are always there for all of us.

Our Thursday, November 6th Meeting will be our Annual Stated Meeting and election of officers. Come out and assist us with the election of our up coming officers. If you have not attended lodge recently, now is the time to come back and visit old Brethren as well as old friends; we always have room for anyone that would like to attend..

Fraternally, Reid A. McLeod W.M.
