October's Message

Please read my appeal in the Templegram for Relief from Hurricane Katrina.

On a much lighter note, but most solemn one. I’d like to congratulate our Junior Grand Deacon on becoming, Sir Knight Joesph B. Harker on August 20th, 2005 at Galilee Commandery, Sussex, WI. He told us that becoming a Sir Knight, has been a long time in coming. Even though we were dark, we continued to labor in our duties as Masons. Brothers Jim Burton and Mike Drout were Exalted to the Most Sublime Degree of Ancient Craft Masonry, that is becoming a Royal Arch Mason. Brother Jeff Laven, and myself were in Wausau, WI on August 27th, 2005 to see them come through the Royal Arch. Congratulations Companions ! My hat, goes off to Brother Jeff Laven, for making the trip and supporting our brothers in their endeavors.

On September 22nd, 2005, Brother Bill Tutaj, was Greeted a Select Master. Congratulations Companion Bill. Brothers, if you would like to discover that of which, was lost, we can help bring you up to speed in the York Rite. On Thursday, October 6, 2005 at 6:30 p.m., Kilbourn Chapter #1 will be having a Dinner/ York Rite Presentation at Wisconsin Lodge #13. Please, come down and bring another brother with you.

Where else did we travel to last month ? Brothers Bob Horton, Bill Tutaj, Jeff Schallitz, and myself went all the way over to Aurora #30, to see the most impressive Entered Apprentice Degree, spoken all in German. I recommend to see it any time you get the chance. The German Lodge, does a great degree, and leaves quite an impression on the profane candidate. Also Jeff Schallitz, and myself went to Silas Shepherd Lodge #1843 in Black River Falls, WI on September 10, 2005. The Masonic Sword, was quite the conversation. As Senior Steward of Silas Shepherd I, turned in my first History Paper, it’s entitled “Masonic Light Inward or Outward.”

More buzzing in the hive, as Brother Pat Cholka, gave the Re-obligation, on September 29th, 2005. Brother Pat, thank you so much, for keeping us within due bounds of all mankind, and especially each other. A great ceremony, and a tasty refreshment was had by all following.

Did you enjoy the Magician, at our lodge ? Well, the Tripoli Shrine Temple is having a Magic Show, Comedy, Food & Fun night on October 7th, 2005 at 6:00 p.m. Adults $5.00 and Children $3.00. Call Cindy @ (414) 933-4700, for more information.

It’s been quite a busy last month. Have I forgotten about the Charity Car & Bike Show ? No, of course not, the best for last. I’d like to thank the Trustees, Palmer Lodge #301, La Fayette Lodge #265, Wisconsin Lodge #13, Kilbourn Chapter #1, and Eastern Star Chapter #194 for doing everything possible to make the show a great success. I’m so grateful to all of you, for working together and showing our community, who we are and what we’re all about. A special thanks to Worshipful Master Bob Ross, for helping drive our success. I hear the car shows only get bigger year after year.

Let’s strive to Live, with Love and Care, on the Level and by the Square.

Courteously Yours,
Timothy G. Kloss Worshipful Master
AKA “ Yo-Yo the Clown”
