The Trestle Board
Editors Notes: Brethren,  It's great to be back at lodge. Admittedly, I DID have a wonderful time with my family and even some of the brothers over the short break. One Brother and I even carved out some time to visit with the Worshipful Master. He's working hard to recover and his surgery scars are kinda cool. Granted, I would probably come up with a better story than a basketball injury (then again, no one would believe that I was playing a sport anyway). As I said last time, it truly is a pleasure to put out these news letters for you. This time, I'd like to ask for help with our outreach... We have exactly 50 brother's email addresses on this list. If you have a brothers info, please send it to us. or forward this Trestle Board to them and encourage them to subscribe. Thank you for taking the time to read my note, I hope you've had a great holiday season and a blessed year to come.  -Brother Harry Fries

From Darkness Into Light

Coming back from the Holidays, our first meeting was January 14th. There is a Practice tonight (1/21/14) at 7pm as is with most 'off Tuesdays'. There is also catechism work at 6pm. So please come on down.

Masonic Services

Poinsettias The Delivery went well. Probably thanks to the breakfast made by an unnamed, kind soul who also may dabble in Trestle Board editing. But in seriousness, we only had six to deliver. With unanswered calls and disconnected phone numbers, our widow outreach is suffering... Again, Please, if you can help us reconnect to some of the ladies, please share their contact information with our secretary by emailing . 
Scholarship Fundraiser The Bowling outing is still in the works and WILL be a very good time. More information to come soon.  

From the Worshipful Master

As you may know already, Wheaton Lodge's WM has been nursing an injury and the intensive surgery that followed. With the inability to actually leave his home he has been keeping close correspondence with the active brotherhood and leading from afar. Whit this said, here is the Masters Words to the Brethren.
We are back in business after our quick hiatus in darkness from the holidays. Some officers have been shifted around and have been practicing their new chairs. It would be great to get some of the "veterans" in Lodge and in practice days to give their advice.
Our bowling fund raiser is still in the works and will have an up date soon.
The official DDGM visit is also coming up with a final date to be determined.
Keep warm in this brutal Chicago weather we are having.
See you guys soon!
Any concerns, comments, or suggestions please email
