March 2016 GLSO article for The Word

Greetings Brethren,

Spring is almost here!

I would like to begin by thanking the Brothers who donated money, clothing, or their time to help Brother David Yoder , a Brother of Otselic Valley Lodge who lost his home to fire.  The outpouring of Brotherly love for this Brother from across New York State was truly inspirational!  A big thank you to R.W. Brian Ziegler for his leadership in organizing this help for Brother Yoder!

On March 12th at Cortlandville Lodge, I will be conducting the Road to the East program.  The class will be held from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, with lunch served at noon.  You will need to bring a copy of the 24 Inch Gauge and your dues card. If you do not have a copy of the 24 Inch Gauge, please call me and we will get you one.  Please RSVP to me by March 10th so I know how many Brothers to plan for.

There are many Degrees being  done around the District.  Please help when asked or just attend and watch great ritual being done by the Brothers of your District.

As always, the District Deputy and I will be around the District as much as possible.  If you need our assistance you can call me at 607-597-9309 or email me at

See you in Lodge,

Clinton S. Brooks
