May, 2018

The month of April has been another exciting month for our lodge! At our Stated Meeting dinner this month we celebrated Public Schools month with a guest speaker Kristin Anderson whose program of interest was how the Raising a Reader Program is continuing to make a huge difference in the lives of underprivileged children right in the San Francisco Bay area. Brother Mark Williams, who serves on the Public Schools Committee with Grand Lodge, announced that on Thursday April 26th, Masons from all over California will assemble to celebrate Public Schools month at 9am at Bridges Academy at Melrose, located at: 1325 53rd Ave., Oakland CA 94601. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.

On Tuesday April 17th, Acalanes Fellowship Lodge’s excellent corps of officers conducted a 1st degree on our newest Entered Apprentice Mason Sigmond Sternang. Welcome to our lodge and Fraternity my Brother! Our lodge will continue to remain in 1st degree mode as we have another 1st Degree coming up on Tuesday May 22nd for Mr. Dale Satre at 6:30 PM. Please save the date to welcome him to the Fraternity. If you would be interested in participating on his degree team please do let me know.

On Tuesday April 24th we will hold our monthly social potluck at our lodge from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. There is no cost to attend, just please bring a dish to share and enjoy the company. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please RSVP via Eventbrite so we have a good estimate on how many will be attending.

I look forward to seeing you all again soon!
