September 2022 Master’s Message

Greetings Brethren, Summer is quickly coming to an end and Jenks Lodge is getting back into the swing of things. We hosted a successful family cookout at the Lodge a few weeks ago and Brother Bobby Frank hosted a fantastic Senior Warden Social on one of the nicest days we have had all summer.  Thank you to all who worked to make these events successful and for all of you who came out to enjoy the days with us! We have some fantastic events coming up in the next month or so,  Saturday...

May 2022 Master’s Message

Fortitude, Prudence, Temperance, and Justice The cardinal virtues of Masonry were the focus of Jenks’ May communication.   After an enjoyable dinner the Lodge was opened in the Entered Apprentice degree at seven o’clock.  The secretary cleared his desk and the bills were read and ordered to be paid. Motions were made and voted upon, and all was going as planned, until the lights flashed and dimmed and then went out altogether.  The lodge was called to recess, and some of the...

April 2022 Master’s Message

Greetings Brothers April was a quite a month, we got a lot done and had quite a few laughs along the way.  RW Rick Baccus had his final two Visitations to the Metro district this month.  The brothers and officers of Jenks came out in force to support him.  His first visitation was to Overseas Lodge, and while I wanted to be there I was on a ship 1200 miles away so could not attend…. Or so I thought, on that night I started receiving photos showing that I was in attendance, well...

March 2022 Master’s Message

Greetings my Brothers, The variety of changes which each season displays to the discerning eye reminds me that we are already a quarter of the way through our Masonic year.  Spring is here, there are buds on the trees, and the sun was still up when I got to Lodge on our meeting night for the first time this year, I would love to have added it was warm, but alas, that was not the case!   It’s going to be a busy month this April.  The officers will be attending two DDGM visitations this month,...

February 2022 Master’s Message

As the lodge completes its second month of the new year I look out at my brothers and officers I realize how lucky I am to be surrounded by such good men and their families. And I want to start this message with a sincere thank you to everyone who has supported the Lodge this year, you are what makes this lodge work so well! February’s Stated Communication began a little early as we knew we had a lot of work to do. We were joined this month by our District Deputy Grand Master RW Rick Baccus...
