Rocky River #703, F&AM

From The East - January 2019

Greetings Brethren,

Installation is behind us and as we move into the New Year we have a busy calendar. 

We Had an MM practice on January 3rd. On January 10th WB Ted Cutts will be in the east for a special MM. I know Ted has reached out to many of you about participating in this special degree. It will be an opportunity for many of you to bring back some of the Rocky River magic for Ted’s son. Dinner is 6:30 pm with Roast Beef. Please call Ted (216) 956-8940 or me at (440) 759-3261 to take a part. We would like to fill all the roles with Rocky River members. 

On the 17th we will have our Annual Awards Night. It will be an open meeting so feel free to bring guests. Our award recipients will be WB James LePrevost, Bro. Raymond Ferguson, and WB George Mason 

On the 24th at 6:00 pm we will have an OPEN HOUSE so potential members can Learn the Secrets of Freemasonry. Invite potential members to join us. The Open House will be followed by dinner at 6:30 pm and an opportunity for fellowship with our members. Our regular stated business meeting will be at 7:30. 

Our 43rd Annual Breakfast in the Park will be at the Mastic Road Pavilion on January 27th at 8:30 am . Bring some bacon, sausage or eggs and dress warm. Invite some friends to share in the Fellowship. Rocky River Lodge will provide the cooking utensils, the potatoes, coffee and juice. Dress Warm!
