Who are the Masons?

The Masonic Fraternity is the oldest Fraternity in the world. The Masonic Family includes Masons as well as organizations for their ladies, couples, and youth. Masons are looking for men who wish to become better men, who are interested in giving back to their community and in self-improvement. We welcome any inquiries concerning Masonry. The Masonic Family provides more than $2 million a day to charitable activities such as hospitals, youth scholarship and those less fortunate than we.

A New Year ...


A new year is upon us.  We have a new Grand Master MWB Sam Roberts.  Please join me in congratulting him and wishing him a great year.  Now that Grand Lodge is done, there is much work to get back to.  I look forward to seeing many of you through out the summer months. 

For those interested I have the new coins and pins.  The coins are $10 ea. so get them while they last.  

Also please extend a hearty congratulations to the new Deputy to the Grand Master of District 17 - Clayton M. Anderson.  I know he is excited and is looking forward to his year (or years) of service to the Brothers of District 17 as am I for District 16.  I look forward to working with VWB Clayton. 

                                          VWB Clayton M. Anderson                                 VWB Edward C. Woods

In parting I will like to include here a note from our Grand Master Sam Roberts:

I am a Freemason…  

and I believe that honesty is the only policy; that a persons’ religious and political viewpoint is their own.  

I am a Freemason and know that the world would be a better place for all humanity if a person’s character was based on tolerance instead of prejudice; on deference and civility instead of disregard and disrespect; on compassion instead of indifference; on justice, forgiveness and honor.  

I believe that life has value; that love overlooks faults; that effort and patience gratify more intently than immediate indulgence; that things only have value when you give them to others and that no force can take away that which is in one’s heart or mind, but the same can be freely shared or given away.  

Freemasons are an association of like-minded men whose only desire is to be the best that they can be. Beginning with themselves, they work to make the world a better place for all and strive to support other men with similar aims.  

I believe there is no time like right now that Freemasonry is more relevant or more needed.

MWB Sam Roberts - Grand Master  

Brothers I look forward to another great year.  Hope to see many of you very soon.

Harmony Lodge No. 18 - Summer BBQ 1


I attended Harmony Lodge No. 18 last night, the first of three summer BBQ's before their first stated meeting nights in June, July and August. There were quite a few in attendance and the Stewards did a fantastic job with the spread under the guidance of JW Tim Rowley.

Sadly, this was Bro. Tim's last night serving as JW for Harmony as his work will be taking him to the sunshine state of California. Bro. Tim's enthusiasm will be missed. I did have the pleasure of presenting him with his certificate of proficiency in Lodge Management.
After the meeting WB Pat Baker, SW Jeff Rennaker and I met with Bro. Heath Gunns to assist with a project that is near and dear to his heart. More details on that later, but let me assure you a very worthy cause.

There are many more summer BBQ's over the next couple of months so there are plenty of opportunities for some great fellowship. With Grand Lodge around the corner, next week to be exact, a new year begins as your Deputy. This has been an experience thus far that I would not trade for the world. I am looking forward to my second year with equal enthusiasm. If I do not see you at Grand Lodge next week, I will certainly see you in Lodge.

Be safe, have fun,


Edward C. Woods
