That saying has been around for years and years. But I have news for you. You Lodge is alive and the dreaded "wont change" words are no longer in our dictionary. Now it is a "WE CAN DO IT" Lodge. Attached is a file that contains pictures of the progress so far on the Office renovation.
Donations have been made by Brothers for the ceiling tiles, grid, plastic barrier and insulation. A special announcement will be made when the renovation is completed to officially thank all who have contributed time and money to make it happen. When you see Jerry, Larry, Norm, Chad, John and anyone else who I may have missed, please thank them, they are working hard for you.
How many Mason's
does it take to change a light bulb?
Answer: None, Mason's would rather work in the dark than change anything.
A very special gang of Masons have been busy as you can see. While everyone has pitched in, Brother Jerry Thompson has gone above and beyond in demolition and cleaning. Brother Larry Preston and Norm Burns have spent hours moving and patching and looking for upgrades. The Brothers have picked out the furniture and the Board has seen fit to purchase it. Carpet and paint are next on the agenda as we progress with the insulating and installation of the new ceiling. AT&T is coming in this week to lay plans for wi-fi for the entire building, not just the upstairs. There is much going on in your Lodge besides a tremendous amount of Degree work and social outings as we are preparing for the next generation.
Be aware, this is not the end, but just the beginning. We still have plans for the men's lounge renovation into a first class Library/museum/conference room/computer kiosk, respite meeting room and then the downstairs complete game room. Much, much more to come. Your ideas, thoughts and comments are always welcome.
