Stated Meeting January 26th

Hello Brothers,

Our next stated meeting is Tuesday, January 26th.  Fellowship begins at 6:00 pm, lodge opens at 7:00 pm sharp.

We will have an important discussion on the current dues structure and any necessary changes to continue the success of Lodge 112 going forward.  I anticipate much valuable debate so please join us and don’t miss out!  Every member’s viewpoint and comments are important.

After lodge there will be a Special Funds Committee meeting where we will be reviewing our program for higher education assistance.  I hope you have all reviewed the draft guidelines so we can make updates and create a final version.

See you in lodge brothers!

More Light Can be Found Many Places

Hello Brothers, Happy New Year to you!

Resolve to actively search for more light this year!  It’s an easy resolution to keep, just join us in lodge!

We endeavor to assist each other in our search for light and knowledge, but as a global fraternity there can be much learned from distant brothers as well.

Try out listening to a Masonic podcast on your next trip, commute, or even jogging.  A podcast is a pre-recorded radio show of sorts, that is available for streaming or downloading on your phone (or Ipod, hence the name).

Three of my favorites are below:

The Masonic Roundtable

I’ve mentioned this podcast before.  A group of brothers from around the country, often with guests discussing a particular topic each week.  This is broadcast live on Tuesday nights at 9pm, and available on YouTube or as a podcast the next Wednesday.

Whence Came You

This is a great podcast to listen to if you enjoy tidbits of info like you have seen in the Short Talk Bulletin.  Host Bro. Johnson reads excerpts from many masonic books and papers and offers commentary and discussion.  New episodes each Sunday I believe.

The After Lodge Podcast

When some levity is necessary, this podcast is a great way to cut loose.  The hosts are members of the same lodge, and touch on several masonic topics and news of the day, but often digress into rants and comedic stories.

 

So where do you get these?  If you have an IPhone or IPod, you go to the “podcasts” app on your home screen and do a search for each one.  If you have an Android phone, you may have to download a podcast application from the Google Play store if your phone didn’t come with one pre-loaded.  If you have a Windows phone.. .well it’s call a podcast not a window cast so I can’t help you with that.  And I think Sprint has some good deals on IPhones currently.

Check one or all of these out next time you are in the car, you won’t be disappointed!
