Lodge Night – October 23, 2018

Stated Communication
.: The NorthStar Project :.
Tuesday, October 23, 2018

Our communication on 10/9 was informative.  Our newest Fellowcrafts have some good initiatives for fundraising. They also are going to chair the committee for the 150th re-dedication of Blazing Star #694. They are very interested in Masonry and are willing to help out the Lodge and be involved which is great. We balloted on an affiliation. Additionally, we had a visitor for dinner that went away with a Petition for membership.  From what I hear he is coming back tonight with his completed petition.  This lends perfectly to tonight’s presentation of the NorthStar Project.

We learned that Brother Janeczko had a stroke and is currently on the mend.  He is healthy and healing quickly.  Unfortunately, it will be a long road to recovery. Please keep our Chaplain in your thoughts and prayers as he recovers. Brother Janeczko has been there leading us in prayer for years, we pray for his speedy recovery and return to the Lodge.

I put a call out for any Brother who wanted to try to fill Brother Janeczko large shoes and Brother Paterek committed to stepping in as our interim Chaplain until Brother Janeczko returns.


I am appealing to all officers (Sr. and Jr. masters of ceremonies up to myself) to set the day aside and attend the Grand Lecturers convention. I will announce a date when I have it, but it will be in January. It is time for Blazing Star to get another Potts award. I know being away from the city we don’t get the recognition we deserve. This is one way to let the county know we are still here and thriving.

At tonight’s communication, R: W: Dan DiNatalie will be our guest speaker. He will be doing a presentation on the North Star Project which is a tool to help introduce new candidates to Masonry. It is a program that has a benefit for masonry as a whole and everyone should be engaged in. Growing our fraternity with good men is the only way we will survive into the future.

Dinner is at 6:30 pm as usual and we open at Lodge promptly at 7:30 pm. Come on out and have some fellowship and knowledge sharing with your Brothers.

“The members of a particular Lodge are the best judges of it; and because, if a turbulent member should be imposed on them, it might spoil their harmony or hinder the freedom of their communication, or even break up and disperse the Lodge, which ought to be avoided by all true and faithful” (http://www.masonicdictionary.com/ballot.html).
