From The East:

 

Hello Brothers,
Message About DUES:
As of our Stated Meeting on March 25, 2014, most members have paid their 2014 dues. Only 144 of our members pay dues. The rest are Life Members, Fifty Year Members, or are otherwise exempt from paying dues. However, 34 of our members owe a total of $4,345.00 for dues and arrears, as shown in the following table.
Grand View Lodge must pay an annual per capita fee to the Grand Lodge of Illinois for each membership--whether a member pays his dues or not. Accordingly, we must decide whether to ask the Grand Lodge of Illinois to suspend members who are past due.
It has been Grand Lodge policy for more than five years to require the Grand Master’s permission to suspend a member for non-payment of dues. The purpose of this program is to ensure the Lodge:
Makes every effort to personally contact a member prior to taking action to suspend
 Ensures the member is not suffering financial hardship or other difficulties
 Fulfills our obligation to assist a worthy distressed Brother Master Mason
The following requirements must be followed in order to suspend a member for non-payment of dues:
1. The Master must appoint a three member committee (not including the Secretary) to contact members in arrears
2. The Committee should make every attempt to personally contact the members
3. The Committee should discretely assess the member’s financial situation
4. If the Committee feels the member is suffering a financial hardship or the member explains some difficulty preventing the payment of dues, our obligation is to assist. In such situations, the Committee should recommend to the Lodge to remit his dues.
5. The Committee’s report on each member must be made at a Stated Meeting and be recorded in the minutes of the Lodge
6. If the recommendation of the Committee is to suspend the member, the Lodge will at a Stated Meeting vote to suspend the member pending the Grand Master’s approval
As you can see, our first goal is to help those members who want to maintain their membership. The process of suspending a member who is no longer interested in Masonry is time consuming. Very soon, the lodge will form committees to contact all members who owe $100.00 or more. If you know yourself to be one of those members, please do not avoid our call. If you need assistance with your dues because of financial hardship, please be assured the we are willing to help, but we must receive a request from you.
.

 

Fraternally Yours,
Harry D. Warren,
Worshipful Master

 


 

The oldest known Masonic writing, the Regius Manuscript or “Poem of Moral Duties,” was discovered to be a Masonic document by a non-Mason, J. O. Halliwell, in 1839. It was written about 1390 and was given the name “Regius” because it was found in the Royal Library of England. It is now a part of the British Museum. Some common Masonic Ritual terms in use today are found in it such as “So Mote It Be.” The Holy Book must be opened upon the altar before a Masonic Lodge may be opened. Freemasonry is not concerned with doctrine or dogma or sect or denomination, but only with "that natural religion in which all men agree." Therefore, the Holy Book is called the V.S.L. or Volume of Sacred Law or the Book of the Law. If the members of a Lodge are Christian, Moslem, Jewish or Buddhist, the V.S.L. of their particular belief is opened upon their altar. The V.S.L. is, therefore, a symbol of the revealed will and teachings of the Great Architect of the Universe - a name under which any Freemason can worship that Deity in Whom he puts his faith and trust.

 

 


 

Notes from the CHIP Program:
Grand View Lodge has decided to participate in the Child Identification Program sponsored by the Grand Lodge. Several members have already taken the training.

 


 

Work and Schedules:
Work on the Lodge Roof is underway…..
Top right, in a black shirt, Bro. Anthony Cleveland, a speculative mason, is shown practicing operative masonry. His work is well underway to completion. Once the new roof is on, we hope to begin work freshening up the inside of the lodge with some plasterwork, new paint and perhaps new flooring.

Past Master’s Comments:
Your lodge is active and holding our own with the other lodges and we're always looking to reach out into the community to contribute where we can. Also, if you are interested in any other Masonic organization--let us know where we can be of assistance--we have connections.

 

I've heard so many brothers comment after they have started taking an active part in degree work and other lodge activities that participation is really rewarding. Don't pass up on the opportunities you have.

 

Fraternally,
Eric Johnson, Past Master

 


 

Secretary’s Corner:

 

We have started the year off by putting your Annual Dues Invoices in the mail. Many have already paid their 2014 dues. If you are in arrears and need confidential assistance, please contact me to see if help is available.

 

With the dues notices, we included a letter letting everyone know that the roof on Grand View Lodge’s building is leaking, causing damage to the interior, and that we need to pay for a substantial roof repair. In response, many brothers have contributed donations to the Building Fund. While we will not likely receive enough donations to pay for the repairs, all of your generous donations are greatly appreciated.

W. Bro. Scott E. Umland
