November's Message

Brethren & Ladies of Palmer
Hear the words of the wisdom of Solomon:
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them.
In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery, and their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace. For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality.

On October 5th, 2005, The Grand Architect of Our Universe, has opened the door, and called upon, Worshipful Master Bob Ross of Wisconsin Lodge #13 to lay aside his working tools, and come to rest in the eternal house not made with hands. Worshipful Master Bob Ross was only 35 years young, and is survived by his two young children Ian and McKenna, and many, many friends and relatives. Wisconsin Lodge #13 is setting up an educational trust fund for young children. If you would like to know more please contact Brother Mike Drout acting Worshipful Master. I know Brother Bob, is in heaven and having a great time at all the Car Shows ! God Speed my Brother.

Sir Knights, don’t forget the Orders of the Red Cross, and Malta, they will be held at Waukesha Masonic Temple at 8:30 a.m., Saturday, November 12, 2005. Lunch will follow the Orders. Please support our Companions in becoming Knights of Malta.

Our stated meeting night for November, will be Friday, November 11th, 2005.
We are changing it due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. I hope this doesn’t inconvenience anyone. This will also be our elections night, please come down and share an apple with us. Our apple tradition continues…………..

I would like to thank the Royal Arch Masons, Eastern Star, and our Blue Lodges for giving so graciously to the Hurricane Katrina Relief. It’s not what Masonry, can do for us, but what we can do for Masonry and our Country.

My Brethren & Officers, one more Templegram to write, and I’m passing the collar and pen, over to your next deserving Master. I want to Thank Everyone, for allowing me to preside in the East. It is truly an honor to earn such a position. I have learned a great deal over the year, not only about Charity, and Relief, but about Brotherly and Sisterly Love. Any Past Master will tell you, it’s the strength and support of Brotherly and Sisterly Love that will guide, and weather your ship throughout all the days of your term. I’m also, grateful to our Grand Master Roger L. Magoon for reminding us Masonry is " A Way of Life."

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
Most humbly submitted,
Timothy G. Kloss, Worshipful Master
