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 September 17th at 10:00AM Jenks will be supporting the Out of Darkness charity walk being held at Butler Hospital in Providence, tis is a very worthwhile event that many of the brothers have supported for years, come on down and join us for this important event.

The weekend of the 24th to the 26th is very busy. Saturday we start the day with a Lodge Cleaning event at 11:00AM, anyone who wants to come by and assist is welcome.  Later that evening at 5:00PM we are hosting a Cigar Night at Toros Cigar bar (899 Warren Ave, East Providence) where $35 gets you dinner and a cigar.  Tickets can be purchased at our website or from one of our officers.  Sunday at 5:00PM is our monthly pot luck dinner and the next day Monday is Jenks Stated communication, This month we host Most Worshipful Palazzo as he makes his official visitation to the Metro District.  Dinner will be at six, and Requires a reservation.  Dinner and the Presentation portion of the meeting, by Bro Oscar Allyene, is open to Masons and Non Masons alike, (please specify how many will attend when you make reservations).  The meeting will begin at 6:30 in the Fellowcraft Degree for the lodge to clear its regular business and for the candidates to make their proficiency.  The District Deputy Grand Master will be received at 7:15, and Most Worshipful will be received at 7:30. I hope to see the sidelines packed to welcome our Grand Master for what should be a great night!

October 8th at 5:00PM is our annual Goldenburg Symposium.  This year we are very lucky to have Ben Wallace as our guest speaker.  This year we are having the meeting first and after the meeting will be holding an Octoberfest Dinner afterwards, come join us for food and drink and fellowship that night.

And the end of the month we are conferring the Master Mason Degree on our candidates, this will be done at both our regular communication and a special communication in Nashua NH Saturday October 29th, more details on this exciting event will be coming out soon!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon
