Senior Warden’s Message for May 2017

2ABrethren,

This Memorial Day…Remember our fallen heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

Our digital sign, outside the building is up and running.  However, a few more specifications must be met to have the City of Arcadia sign off on the permit.

Our next big project is having the solar panels installed so we can lower our bills and contribute toward a non-polluting, reliable, and renewable source of energy.  We have submitted three proposals/quotes to the Grand Lodge for approval.  Our roof is getting fixed and upon completion we will have the solar panels installed.

If you would like to join our monthly scheduled work party, please contact me at 626-350-8034.

All candidates (Entered Apprentice and/or Fellowcraft) that would like to study for their proficiency in the next proceeding degree, feel free to contact me in scheduling a coaching session.

Also, inform me if you know any of our brethren that are sick or in distress.

Safe travel my brothers.

Fraternally,

Joven R. Bilog, Senior Warden

Junior Warden’s Message for May 2017

3Hello Brethren,

First a shout out to brother Nick Zigic for a wonderful taste of Bosnia–from the authentic meal to the video tour of the city, where we learned quite a bit of history. Hopefully, that this was only the first annual of many more to come. In the month of May, we will again have our free dinner on May 4th. The food will be prepared by brother Eusebio, our wonderful chef. The menu will be a surprise! You will have to come in person to enjoy, so bring yourself and friends.

Carrying on the surprise theme, our entertainment will also be a surprise! It’s also one that you have to see in person!

Sincerely,

Victor Luu, Junior Warden

Master’s Message for April 2017

1Brethren,

This month theme will focus on work in a larger community. Enjoy A Masonic Lodge is a community within the community at large, a community of the Craft, alive and operative. In dealing with some Masonic terms, the word “lodge,” has a wide array of meanings which may cause confusion. When your significant other asks you if you will be at home this evening; “No” you answer, “I am going to lodge.” In this response lodge means a place and an event. You are demonstrating a communication of the officers and brethren at the lodge who make up Arcadia #278. Such usage indicates a partial manifestation of the lodge, but, more importantly, lodge identifies an entity neither limited to a particular place or to a special event. Put simply, lodge meetings and events represent a vital and special function of the larger lodge which is the local community of Masons and the local community in which Arcadia #278 serves. Our lodge houses the operating and training center for this larger lodge by taking good men and making them better. Better leaders of industries, communities and households. From this place of focus, the leadership of the Master, assisted by his officers and his committees, radiates outward and assumes the responsibility for “putting the Craft to labor” within the lodge’s jurisdiction of compassion and caring. These officers are the future Worshipful Masters in training. We all like to see a large number of brothers out to our meetings, for; after all, fraternal companionship is one of the great joys of Freemasonry. However, it is not the primary business of the master or his officers to entertain the brethren in an attempt to populate the sidelines, although it does help. It is about mainlines of action and vision, trying to be the catalyst of change by bringing brotherly love, relief and truth to not only other Masons, but to the larger community as a whole.

Fraternally,
Jonas M. Olguin, Worshipful Master

Junior Warden’s Message for April 2017

3Hello Brethren,

Hope everyone enjoyed the performance of the Arcadia High School Orchesis dance troop at the March Stated meeting. Those who did not attended missed a free meal (yes, free meal!) and some amazing choreograph dances from the local high school performers.

Our Worshipful Master Jonas Olguin has decided that all our stated meeting dinners will be gratis! So, bring yourself, your neighbors and enjoy the friendship.

Just want to remind everyone that before the April stated meeting, we will have a special event on 3/23/2017 to celebrate the Hiram Award being presented to our very own PM Robert Sechrest! Please email our secretary Rob Stai your reservation.

For April Stated Dinner meeting, we have a special program lining up. To celebrate Bosnia independent day, brother Nick Zigic will be providing a special ethnic meal as follows:

Appetizer – Puffies w Bosnian cream cheese
Main course- Cevapcici
Dessert – Chocolate filled Crepes

We will have spirits to celebrate, and possibly Bosnian Dance ensemble or Karaoke 🙂

Again, if you can make reservations with our secretary, PM Rob Stai, we will ensure that you and your friends will be served!

Sincerely,
Victor Luu, Junior Warden
