Brethren & Ladies:

We have lost several other Brothers this month.  I am certain that they will be missed by you as much as they are by me.
June was an interesting month to say the very least!  We embarked (successfully it appears) on our very first attempt at a Festive Board.  Thank you to all who participated and all who attended this event.  Pictures are on page 5.  The Grand Master and his wife Linda enjoyed their evening with us and has passed on through my office thank you messages for all involved.
On June 21st we had the pleasure of having Ill. John L. Cooper III, Jr. Grand Warden of the Grand Lodge of California as our guest speaker for our night of instruction.  His talk was well prepared and all present enjoyed the additional education.  Thank you to Bro. Chuck Cowden for all his work in making the evening a very successful one.
The All Officers Council met and considered the issues of delinquent dues, the finance committee report which recommends a reduction of application fees and an increase in our annual dues.  You will hear that report at our stated meeting.
There are still other upcoming events for the remainder of the year that are being planned.  I hope you can all make yourselves available for the fellowship.
Please be certain that your dues have been paid for 2011.

Robert D. Rowan, Jr. 
General Secretary
