From the East

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version="3.26.3" text_text_color="#000000"]Greetings brothers!

I hope you are all having a good summer and staying cool! I am honored to serve you in the East for the ensuing year. Besides focusing on ritual and education this year, I would like to do one big event. I want us to come up with something together, but I want to give ourselves enough time to plan and do it right.

I look forward to the upcoming year, and seeing you all in September and hearing your ideas. Enjoy the rest of your summer brothers.

Fraternally,
Matt Middlemiss[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built="1" admin_label="Posts" _builder_version="3.26.3" custom_padding="0|0px|22px|0px|false|false"][et_pb_row

Many of you who attend lodge regularly might notice a bright walk back to your car after lodge next meeting, it's thanks to brothers Lee Spaulding and Jerry Morong. Jerry worked with Lee to coordinate the installation of two new parking lot lights to light our way home.

Previously to this new installation a Halogen parking lot light was on the corner of the building. This light used an immense amount of power and, due to a faulting light sensor, was on all the time. These new LED lights not only save a lot of $$ on electricity but are more reliable and environmentally friendly than their halogen counterparts.

The next time your walking in the light to your vehicle make sure to thank Bro. Spaulding for donating his time, materials, and parts to putting these new lights up.

Brothers of Franklin Lodge have, in the past, put together initiatives to restore & store our Lodge's history. One new brother, Brother Michael Sibenaller, has taken the torch and is creating a digital option for today's and tomorrow's brothers to enjoy the history of yesterday's brothers.

The lodge approved the purchase of a full book scanner to scan multitudes of books, registries, sign in ledgers, minutes, and many other documents that define the history of Franklin Masonic Lodge #4.

 The scanned books and documents will be stored onto a server that will be made available for brother's reference. These documents will be indexed and logged according to their specific categories, years, etc.

We've also been discussing renting the unit out to other lodges to scan their documentation. While this might seem less brotherly than a loan, the proposal to rent will ensure we have the ability to continue using and loaning the equipment out as the need to maintain the equipment comes up.

We're very excited about this initiative, if you're interested in lending a hand, please feel free to reach out to Brother Sibenaller and get on the scanning schedule.
