Dear Brethren:

Good News!!!! Rossville, GA, Lodge No. 397 will be coming up for our Annual Fraternal Exchange Visit on Friday, September 19 and we will meet with them at the Fairview Park Marriott at 7:00PM for an Evening of fellowship and good food. On Saturday Morning, September 20, we will open our Special Communication at the Lodge at 10:30AM. A special feature of that meeting will be the presentation of the “Traveling Plaque” by the Worshipful Master of Rossville Lodge. Of course, we will be required to return the Plaque to Rossville when we make the Visit next year. Brethren, this marks the 47th year of the Exchange Visits, which were started by our Wor. Robert Johnson while he was on a trip to Chattanooga (Rossville is just next door).

For our October Stated, we will have a special program.

I would like to thank the Temple Corporation for all the improvements to the Lodge Property over the last month. If you have not seen them, you are truly missing out. I hope to see all in Lodge.

May is Law Enforcement Month, and our Senior Deacon, Brother Joe Millirons, will be doing a program. 

The Lodge Picnic will be held on June 14, starting at 11am. This is Flag Day, so we will have a short program that day. We will also have a blood drive with Springfield Lodge No. 217 that day as well. Remember, the picnic is open to family and friends. I look forward to seeing you there.
