MESSAGE FROM THE DISTRICT DEPUTY
Brethren:
Summer is over for most of us, in regards to Lodge work now is the time to get back on track and get our
Lodges busy once again. All Lodges please set aside Sept 12 for our Official Visit with the Grand Master and his
Grand Lodge Officers and their Ladies. I hope this year we can get a good turn out from all the Lodges. It is
semi-public so please bring your ladies and your friends and enjoy the evening. Lets show the Grand Lodge that
the 15th District is healthy and active. Supper 6:30 p.m. at the new Harland Harnden Masonic Building and
hosted by Wilton Lodge #156. I will see you all in September.
Yours in the Craft,
R.W. Dana Leathers, DDGM 15th District

15TH DISTRICT ASSOCIATION MEETINGS
The Association meets on the 3rd Monday of the month with a 6:30 p.m. Pot Luck supper, followed by a 7:00 p.m. meeting.
This Association has the potential to be the strength and support of every Lodge in the district. What it needs is Masons who want things
to HAPPEN and are willing to come together with others in identifying programs which can be implemented. The Association
encourages YOU to become a member and make us strong.
Next meetings will be September 21, at Blue Mountain #67, in Phillips and October 19 at Franklin #123, New Sharon.
PLEASE COME AND SUPPORT YOUR DISTRICT
