The southerly winds are wont to blow warm, and that holds true for January as well as July! This month, our stated meeting will be Wednesday, January 3rd, at the usual location. Brother Pease (Kenton 145) is preparing yet another wonderful meal – this time it will be built around Swedish meatballs. Dinner hour gets going right around 6, and ends just before meeting time at 7. January’s education will involve the reading of a short essay by yours truly, on the subject of Libertines and Masonry.After meeting and lecture, members and post-dinner guests (who will have relaxed in the Library under the watchful eye and ear of the tyler) will meet again for fellowship, including a short group discussion of the essay on Libertines. It is dark and cold of late, but not at Friendship Masonic Lodge! Come on in from the dark, receive some light, some warmth, some fraternity, and some meatballs!
