BROTHERS,

I WILL KEEP THIS SHORT.  MARCH 22ND AT 7PM WILL BE OUR LAST FELLOWCRAFT CLUB IN THE CORTLAND-MADISON DISTRICT FOR THIS YEAR.  WE WILL MEET AT DERUYTER LODGE NO. 692.  THIS MEETING WILL BE OPEN TO ALL BROTHERS, THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS.  OPEN RITUAL WORK WILL BE PRESENTED-INCLUDING CHARGES FROM THE THREE DEGREES, ALONG WITH AN APRON PRESENTATION.

OUR FAMILY MEMBERS SEE US LEAVE FOR LODGE SEVERAL TIMES A MONTH.  THEY WATCH US GO OUT THE HOUSE DOOR AND ARE CURIOUS AS TO WHAT WE DO.  THEY KNOW OUR LODGE WORK IS IMPORTANT TO US AND OUR LODGE BROTHERS ARE CONSIDERED FAMILY, BUT THEY RARELY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO OBSERVE THE RITUAL WORK OR TO APPRECIATE THE DEEP SPIRITUAL MEANING AND MORAL CONTENT.

UNLESS YOU HAVE MEMORIZED OR OBSERVED OUR WORK IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO UNDERSTAND THE DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT OF THE INDIVIDUAL BROTHER.  THE CHARGES TO THE CANDIDATES OUTLINE WHAT IS EXPECTED OF US AS MEN AND MASONS -A SIMPLE AND INSTANT EXPLANATION TO THE UNINITIATED.  THE APRON PRESENTATION  IS BEAUTIFUL AND INTIMATE.

IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE OR ATTEND- GIVE ME A CALL @ 315-662-7747.   WE WILL HAVE REFRESHMENTS AND HOPEFULLY SOME FUN.  IF ANYONE NEEDS HELP WITH DEGREES ETC.  GIVE SCOTT OR I A CALL.

TAKE CARE,

BART
