Great event beginning Friday. Three Brothers from Phoenicia 58 will be attending in Rio Rico. Should be loads of fun and a brain chocked full of Masonry. Having attended the last Academy in Flagstaff where, the subject was the 1st degree. I’m looking forward to the next logical subject of the 2nd degree and the spirited Q&A that comes with the format the Grand Lodge put into place at the last event. As good as the speaker were, the real “stuff” came out during the open Q&A sessions. The trip begins tomorrow at noon. I have a feeling I’m not going to be able to drive by Tucson twice without stopping at El Charro for some “carne seka”.
The passing of Bro. Jacob (Jack) S. Beliak comes as sad news to the Brothers of Phoenicia 58. His incredible life story and dedication to Masonry are the stuff great novels are made of. We were fortunate to have had him in our lodge and will always remember the amazing evening he shared with all who attended as he painted word pictures with the stories of his survival of a Nazi concentration camp. He will forever be remembered for his truly good heart, as well as his honor and bravery
Phoenicia 58 officially thanked Jamie Hernandez for her outstanding contribution on the lodges new website. A gift card and a box of chocolates along with a lodge pin were presented to Mrs. Hernandez by Worshipful Master Jeff Hinson, along with a rousing round of applause by the brethren.
Congratulations to Phoenicia 58s newest Master Mason, Scott Hewitt. And a “Job Well Done” by the brethren at last nights Degree. Keep up the great work Brothers !!
Many thanks to Bro. Jason Schneider for providing the venue for tonight’s Poker and Pizza night for the lodge. The Wii racing was just as intense as the poker this evening and fun was had by all. Thanks to everyone who attended.
Excellent 3rd Degree practice at the lodge last night Brothers. We still have one more opportunity to get this ritual right on the 16th of August at Bro. C. Hinsons home. Make an extra effort to be there so we can be well rehearsed and raise our Brother properly.
The passing of our Worshipful Brother Don Methvans is a great loss to Our lodge and, to Arizona Masonry. You will be missed by all of those who knew and learned from you. Walk in peace and harmony forever Brother.
Masonic Services will be held on Saturday, July 23rd at 9:00am at the Phoenicia Lodge
A big thanks to the Brethren and our guests for their attendance at our July stated meeting tonight. The dinner was great and the company of our guests and their wives was a welcome addition to the dinner hour. Thanks again to all for an excellent meeting.
