Welcome To All Our Brethren
This Month Evansville Lodge was proud to recognize our Brother William Schindler Sr.. Bill is a Past Master of the Lodge and on Sept. 12th received the 50 Year Award of Gold denoting Fifty years in the Fraternity. The Award was presented by Past Grand Master Wm Reiners and Billís Grandson Christian Buck, our current Junior Deacon.
Our work in support of the Dream Center kicks off for another year on Wednesday Sept 21st. The Lodge provides and serves a meal for the children of the Center once a month. This project has been ongoing for 15 yrs. It is not only a public service opportunity but a chance for the Brothers to get together for fun and fellowship.
At our September Stated Meeting we enjoyed guest speaker Chris Cooke. Chris is the Supervisor and historian of the Evansville Cemeteries. He is also a member of Lessing Lodge #464. His talk enlightened us on many services provided by the Cemeteries beyond simple burials. These consist of but are not limited to sites for outdoor weddings, safe and peaceful walking trails, bird watching, horticultural and historical tours along with many other historical facts regarding our community.
Chris also reminded us that Evansville Lodge owns a number of, as yet unused, burial plots (30) in a special Masonic Garden. These plots are available for sale at very favorable rates and not only to our members. Contact Jim Jones at 812491 3667 for further information.

First, let us say thank you to Worshipful Brother Michael Barker, PM for his wonderful service to the lodge in 2015. We all enjoyed a lot of good work in 2015 as we began to turn our efforts from the gears of renovation to the traditional ritual work that we are all accustomed.
This year we will further focus our attentions to what we have ahead of us in 2016. We are extremely lucky to have a huge number of petitions for membership, several transfers, a number of affiliation requests, and a great line of officers to perform all of these tasks. If things continue the way they are looking. we should expect to see a real increase in membership for the first time in several years.
If you have a friend or a relative that you think would benefit from membership, give him good counsel, a petition, and encourage him to join. This lodge will always have room for more good men. It's up to us all to be out there looking for them.
Stated meetings are held on the
Second Monday of each month at 7 PM
