Whether you are a newly Initiated Brother or need a refresher course, your Brothers are there to help! if you are proficient consider coming to help others. From the East This month I would like to write of the subject of Fort Myers Beach Lodge membership. We are approaching 200 members at Fort Myers Beach Lodge, I ask every member to be diligent in aiding and assisting our Entered Apprentices, Fellow Crafts and any new members in feeling welcomed to our lodge. Remember that we have changed catechism practice to the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month in order to assist the Brothers in feeling welcomed and getting to know the members of the Lodge. Ft. Myers Beach Lodge is moving in a positive direction and we have to look to the future and make plans now to continue our growth. I ask that all the members of Ft. Myers Beach Lodge stay active in the lodge and join us for activities outside of our stated meetings. We have committed to participating in the Ft. Myers Beach Fourth of July Parade. I am requesting that everyone that is available to join us designing and constructing a float for the parade. A Mason A Mason is a good man who has studied and knows himself, and has learned and practiced that first and great lesson of subduing his passion to his will, and tries to the utmost of his power to free himself of all vices, errors and imperfections. He asserts the native freedom of his mind, and stands fast in the liberty that makes him free; whose soul is, if one may express it, universal and well contracted: and who despises no man on account of his country or religion; but is ready at all times to convince the world that truth, brotherly love, and relief, are the sound principles on which he acts. It has been said: “The world will never be better than the men that inhabit it. Everything begins and ends with the individual. One man living a brotherly life is worth a thousand lectures of Brotherhood.” Fraternally yours, Isidro “Izzy” lopez

Grand Master of Masons in Florida official visit to district 28 & 29 JAMES W. FORD September 20th, 2014 dinner social at the fort Myers beach shrine club, followed by a tiled Grand Visitation meeting at Fort Myers Beach Masonic Lodge #362. registration at beach shrine club 5pm A great big THANK YOU to: Joshua Calero, M.J. Kenny, Izzy Lopez, Fred Wright & Mark Resendes for your hard work on March 15th at the Lodge clean up and maintenance day. We have received petitions from: Edward McCullars Robert Nagel Steven Anderson Craig Paulson Steve Heitz PAST MASTER’S CORNER Greetings from your Past Master. I would like at this time to say what a great job our Worshipful Master Izzy is doing. It’s a joy to see our Lodge doing so well. I have been to several other Lodges and can now see why we are number one in the district. On May 15th I will be attending my oldest sons Entered Apprentice Degree in York, PA. He has decided to follow his fathers footsteps and become a Mason. I will let you know how that goes when I get back. It will be interesting to see how the Pennsylvania Lodges work their rituals. Now for this months educational bit. When we become Entered Apprentices we are asked about signs, one of which is a Perpendicular. What the heck does that mean? In a geometrical sense, that which is upright and erect, leaning neither one way or another. In a figurative and symbolic sense, it conveys the signification of Justice, Fortitude, Prudence, and Temperance. Justice, that leans to no side but that of Truth; Fortitude, that yields to no adverse attack; Prudence, that ever pursues the straight path of integrity; and Temperance, that serves not for the appetite nor passion. Next month I will have another pearl of wisdom for you. God Bless our Lodge and the United States of America, W:. John A MacDonald PM
