From The East – September 26th Communication

From The East – September 26, 2017 Communication


The last communication was a good one as it was the DDGM’s annual visitation. He brought word from the M:.W:. Jeffery Williamson Grand Master of Masons Of New York State. He also had the traveling team with him who spoke about their specific causes.

DDGM Visit

It was our first session since June, and yes the master (me) made a few ritual errors. But we were evaluated on our opening and closing rituals and deemed competent always moving towards improvement. Thanks to all the brothers who attended the evening.

Our next communication is Tuesday, September. 26 2017. As usual, dinner is at 6:30 pm with Lodge opening at 7:30 pm and normal Lodge attire. We have a few things to go over, a petition for affiliation, and I should have at least one if not two petitions for membership in hand. W:. Breth is also putting on a program so the evening should be one not to miss.

Come on out and support your lodge. Meet new brothers and catch up with friends.

Hope to see you there,
W:. Capron

The Good Shepherd Tabernacle

Fundraising Dinner Served to The Good Shepherd Tabernacle
September 9, 2017


The Fellowcraft Club provided and served dinner this past Saturday to the Good Shepherd Tabernacle. The dinner served received many compliments. We were light with help when Bro T. Mott came in to help. Bro Mott recently had surgery and is recovering but came to help anyway. Then, Bro K. Rhodes walked in bringing the troops from the GOW School. These young men eagerly served the dinner and bused the tables. Many members from the Tabernacle were curious who these polite young men were. Bro Rhodes spent a couple of minutes talking to the guests about the GOW School and the men he brought. It was a fun and easy evening.

Dinner served:
Appetizer: Cheese and cracker platter with mini sausages in a zesty sauce.
Main Entrée: Marinated chicken breast along with scalloped potatoes and peas.

Thanks to those who came and supported the lodge.

Br. G. Wayne Hawk

Brethren –

It is my sad duty to report on the death of Br. G. Wayne Hawk, who put down the working tools on August 27, 2017, at age 89.

We just learned of his passing yesterday, so there will not be a request for a Masonic funeral. His obituary notice is reprinted below.

HAWK – G. Wayne
August 27, 2017, of East Aurora, NY. Beloved husband of Charline “Bunkie”. Dearest father of George Jr. (Carolyn), David and John (Colleen) Hawk. Cherished grandfather of Casey, Maeve, Claire and Gavin Hawk. Dear brother of the late Betty Jane Brown. Also survived by 1 niece and 2 nephews. The family will be present to receive friends on Friday from 5-8 PM at the WOOD FUNERAL HOME, 784 Main Street, East Aurora, NY. Funeral services will be held at Nativity Lutheran Church, East Aurora on Saturday at 11:00 AM. If desired contributions may be made to HospiceBuffalo, Inc. Online condolences may be shared at

“Most glorious God! author of all good and giver of all mercy! pour down Thy blessings upon us, and strengthen our solemn engagements with the ties of sincere affection! May the present instance of mortality remind us of our approaching fate, and draw our attention toward Thee, the only refuge in time of need! that, when the awful moment shall arrive, that we are about to quit this transitory scene, the enlivening prospect of Thy mercy may dispel the gloom of death; and after our departure hence in peace, and in Thy favor, may we be received into Thine everlasting kingdom, to enjoy, in union with the souls of our departed friends, the just reward of a pious and virtuous life. Amen.”
