First I want to apologize for being out the loop, a lot of things has had come up. As of our stated meeting our brother Ben Ploof is currently in the University Iowa Hospital 6 Roy Carver room 68 bed 1 with some serious health issues. Our sympathies goes to Bro Henry Herwig and his family on their loss. On the 23rd of June at 7pm we will be having a 3rd degree for Bro John Alvarez who will be raised to sublime degree of Master Mason we need all hands on deck. On the following Thursday on June 30th at 7pm we are planning to raise Bro Russell Barbary to the sublime degree of Master Mason help will be needed then. In the upcoming months we will be talking about fund raisers for the lodge. It was good to see all of our brothers and visitors at the meeting. If you know brothers that haven’t been to meetings to make contact with them and encourage them to come out.
