Thoughts from the East
In the interest of the safety and security of our brethren, Saint Andrew Lodge continues to be 'closed'. We are now shooting for a March 17 stated communication, and have received special dispensation from the Grand Master to carry over the 2020 officers into 2021., We'll keep you informed. Also, our thoughts and prayers need to be extended to the family of Worshipful Brother Bill Moore, who entered that house not made with hands on Feb. 12 after apparent complications from his back surgery at the VA Hospital, Worshipful Brother Ron Whitener as he continues to recover from his bout with Covid-19, and to WB Pete Conder as he recovers from recent surgery. We also join with the Brethren in mourning the passings recently of Brother David Garmon and Brother Richard 'Dicky' Dixon.
I also want to thank WB Ron Whitener for looking after our lodge building during all of this unprecedented time for all our brethren.
:We're still going strong on the 'Membership Memorial Project'. How would you like to have a permanent memorial to a loved one, gone or still with us, at our great Saint Andrew Lodge? You can do that with a donation of $100 or more to our building fundraiser. We will make a memorial plaque or nameplate, each of which will go on the chairs in our great lodge for everyone to see. I've sent everyone a letter about it with all the details. We look forward to hearing from you!
Please mark your calendars: St. Andrew Lodge normally meets on the third Wednesday of each month, beginning at 7:30 p.m.. We all hope that will be able to resume soon.
A few brothers still need to send your dues in ($87) to me at 7306 Colby Court, Charlotte, NC 28226, so I can send you your 2021 dues card. We need prompt payment of dues to pay the bills for the lodge and we've recently had some unexpected maintenance expenses we need to handle. If you're having any difficulties and need help, please let us know and we'll work with you. Remember, when your dues are not paid by Dec. 31 of the current year, as of Jan. 1 in the new year you are NOT in good standing! (Several fall into that category, sad to say.. We understand there may be some hardships, and we count on you letting us know if that's the case.
I hate to keep harping on that, but dues payments are how we pay our bills, so your help is appreciated. Your attendance would equally be appreciated!
Harvey Burgess, PM
