The Annual Communications are History.

     The 2017 Annual Communications were held in Yakima on June 8-11th, this year. The reception from the City was great. I, as Master of the Lodge, along with WB Earl DeWitt, the Sr Warden and Bro. Carlos Pina were there to officially represent the Lodge. It was a pleasure to have those officers there to vote on the issues put forth to us. We voted on each item as was directed by out Lodge members. I believe that we had at least 8, and possibly more, in attendance. Thank you all for taking the time out to attend. It was really wonderful to see you there. The "Public" proceedings could be seen on Facebook. How wonderful it is to have technology on our side. Thanks to the Frank S Lodge #313 for all the work I saw you doing to present.

We head into the Summer months, when the Lodge is officially "dark". I am hoping that we will get some work details going on during the summer so that when we come back from "break" things will look a little bit better.

May the Great Architect of the Universal look over us, and guide us, to uphold our Masonic duties and please I hope you'll think abouy how we can find away to get more of our Brethren to join us for our Monthly meetings in the future.

Please, join us!
