From The East



       I wanted to thank you all for putting your confidence in me as Master for 2021.

This will be another year of heightened trust and understanding between us all. We are back at lodge with regular Stated Communications on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. The calendar on the Hiram Lodge # 1 web site is being updated already with other functions and important events.


       A trestle board message will be sent regularly with updates, changes and previous happenings around the Lodge. Please help us, with the current Lodge attendance restrictions, no more than 25 may be allowed into meetings. We must know in advance if you intend to participate. Unfortunately, there is no other way to control this except on a first come first serve basis.


       Stated communications will start promptly at 7:30 pm (No meal before or refreshment after).  Off night meetings and fellowship will be 6:30 pm.


Questions / support? Communicate with me via email or text. I'll make every effort to respond immediately.  Of course I'm always available for a phone call as well, when needed.


Thanks again, hopefully we will see each other soon.
