Bill was awarded a beautifully framed Fifty-Five Year certificate and Fifty-Five Year Masonic lapel pin recognizing his service to Freemasonry and Brotherhood Lodge No. 375. The awards were presented by W:. Mike Greene, W:. Wayne Heavens, and W:. Walt Wheeler, all past Worshipful Masters during the time that Bill held elected Lodge offices. Over the years, Bill has been Lodge Secretary and Lodge Treasurer, has coordinated the monthly Masonic Luncheon Club held at the Lodge, and continues to serve as a loyal and faithful Brother.
Congratulations Brother Bill Carman!
Brotherhood Lodge’s 5th Tuesday night tradition of Dining Out continued on March 31st at Buffet City restaurant on Cortez Blvd (SR50), with ten adults and four children in attendance. Thanks to previous planning by the Lodge Secretary, we were ushered into a private and very comfortable back dining room just off the main dining room. We were arranged at one long table, and the conversation covered many interesting topics – none of which were political or current events. Because of this, conversation was plentiful and relaxing. Even the children cooperated by keeping their playing to a dull roar. There seemed to be no winners in the beanbag toss using sugar packets, but they all seemed to enjoy themselves, as did all the adults. It felt like a family dinner with friends!! Great FELLOWSHIP and friendship.
Let’s be brief about the real reason we were there: TO EAT! LOTS of good food of all varieties including: Fresh lettuce and greens salad with various dressings and toppings; several piping-hot soups; Korean Kimche; seaweed; oysters; peel and eat shrimp; steak, chicken, pork, and fresh vegetables of all kinds raw or cooked to order on the hibachi (by an excellent chef) topped with fresh spices as you like it; pepperoni pizza; fried chicken, pork, and beef in several savory sauces; lo-mein noodles; deep fried scallops and other sea food; soft sweet rolls, thick-cut french fries and onion rings; spring rolls and egg rolls, just to name a few entrees. Deserts included: fresh and canned fruit; jello (there’s always room for…); rice pudding; bread pudding; vanilla and chocolate pudding; soft serve ice cream; cookies, cakes, mini-cannolis; and on and on. If you left there hungry, it was your own fault.
If you missed this fun event, be prepared to attend the next one, scheduled for Tuesday evening June 30 at a location to be determined. All Masons from all Lodges, their family, and friends are invited to attend. Please bring a potential Mason as a guest if possible. Watch this site for announcement of the next location we will be visiting. And if you have a suggestion for a location, please contact the Lodge Secretary.
Free Masonry = Fellowship TNT L7 (Don’t know what that means? Ask Bro. Ray next time you see him.)
