A word from our Officers…
From the East:
I hope everyone had a fun and safe summer break. We had a successful Inspection Night/EA degree along with our annual Luau in June. It appears we had a fruitful TBC event as well. The end of the year is upon us.
Other than June, October will be the next busiest month for our lodge. Let’s finish off the year the same way it started; Successful!

Welcome back Brothers. I hope your summer was filled with fun and exciting times.
Now we are back to the work of a Mason! We will be starting out with our annual Ice Cream Social on
September 18th, and continuing with the work on October 2nd with our Fellow Craft Degree! Please come out and support us all as we step up!
On the 6th of November, Past Masters will host a Master Mason Degree. Finally we will finish the year in December on the 4th for the Elections when you can elect your favorite candidate!
We have a busy full season ahead. See you soon!

From the South:
As the year begins to wind down it is good to reflect on the many successes we have had so far in our labors.
We have had several degrees, hosted a Grand Lodge event, a triumphant Table Lodge, our annual luau and, of course, the Two Ball Cane Golf Tournament, to name just a few.
We still have several exciting events left for 2017 including:
Fellowship Breakfasts – Second Sunday of every month. (October cancelled due to conflict with Celebrate Wallingford) October 7th & 8th – Celebrate Wallingford. Compass Lodge will be hosting a CHIP event. We need many volunteers as we had a tremendous turn out last year but were very much understaffed.
October 30th – We are hosting the Blue Lodge Council’s special Master Mason degree. Worshipful Master Joe Kurcaba will be sitting in the East for the first half of the degree. Compass will be doing the cooking and serving and we are in of need volunteers to assist.
December 9th – Officer Installation
December 18th – our annual Holiday Party. Santa has an excellent track record of showing for this event so bring the kids!
We also have a very special event for our very own Father Joe Krusienski. Father Joe has been conferred the honorary 33rd degree from the Scottish Rite, which is awarded for truly exceptional service.
