Submit Your Questions – Grand Lodge Candidate Forum

Brothers,

 

On the afternoon of Saturday, January 16th at about 2:30 p.m. Daylight Lodge will film this year’s Junior Grand Warden and Grand Lodge Candidate Forum.  It will follow the Daylight Stated Meeting in the Greenlake Masonic Hall.  We invite you to send us any question you think should be asked of the several candidates. The questions might ask their views of the future of Grand Lodge, of Masonry in general, their experience in leadership plus what are their goals if elected.

It will be videotaped, placed on Daylight’s website, offered to Grand Lodge and any other lodge for their use. While the primary goal is to hear from Junior Grand Warden Candidates, we will tailor some questions specifically to the office of Grand Secretary as this is the first time there are two candidates filed for the office.

The event will be recorded by students of the Seattle Film Institute as part of Daylight’s support of their training program The editing will be supervised by Daylight brothers Troy McFarland and Paul Turcott who teaches there. It will be as professional a product as is possible to achieve.  We know it will compare with that done last year or better.

We really hope that you will send us some good question so that the brethren throughout the jurisdiction might learn what their future leaders think.  We reserve the right to select and edit questions.

Send your questions to:

secretary@daylightmasons.org or worshipfulmaster@daylightmasons.org

 

Fraternally yours,

CoeTug Morgan, Secretary

Waterland Blog – “Offer pending but no sale yet for Des Moines’ landmark Old Masonic Home”

Despite constant and varied rumors about the sale and potential uses of the Landmark Event Center, also known as the Old Masonic Home, the 88-year-old, 130,000 square foot facility and 27-acre campus on Marine View Drive is still owned by the Masonic Lodge, property manager David P. Owen said Monday.

“I can’t guarantee anything,” said Owen, the lodge’s grand secretary. “All I can say is there is a signed purchase and sales agreement in place for someone who is interested in buying the property. I have not received any earnest money. We gave a back-up offer waiting.”

About the rumors of the possible uses of the land and building, he said, “Once you sell the facility, whatever they do with it, that is their decision.”

2014 Grand Master's Message

Bruce

Most Worshipful
Bruce E. Vesper
Grand Master

 

As Masons, we are first and foremost builders.  Where once masons built cathedrals and structures of stone, today’s Masons must build structures that connect with others.  We must connect with our families, with our communities, and with our fraternity.  It is not enough to say that we have built something in the past; we must continue to build today and tomorrow.  Our work will never be done.

We must always strive to put the good of the fraternity first.  We must strive to be better Masons than those who have gone before us.  It is a lifelong challenge to which every one of us must dedicate themselves.

Be a Masonic Builder, and build a bridge to others!
