NOTABLE EVENTS:

Brothers: I wanted to let everyone know that the Official Date has not been announced as of yet; however we do know the following as it pertains to our District meeting in 2014.
In an effort to show Masonic Unity and hopefully host the largest crowd seen in many years we have decided to Combine the District 2 and District 3 meeting this up coming year.  The meeting will be held in Troy Tennessee, at a venue to be announced at a later date.  We are certain that it will be held on the Friday evening just prior to Brother Del's Homecoming in District 1.

Dresden Lodge #90

-September 14th is Dresden #90 Lodge Special Day it is the day the Grand Lodge selected for us to have open house. It turned out to be the day we had picked to have our annual fund raising event which is yarn sale and fish fry, so we decided since we would be there anyway this would be a good thing. The yard sale is all day from 7Am until after the fish fry @ 7PM and the FISH PLATE goes on sale @ 5PM $8  all you can eat (Fish, hushpuppies, fries, slaw, white beans, desserts, drinks).
 Please come join us.
