TRESTLEBOARD FROM THE EAST Brethren, February, the month of Holidays and L’s LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE and LEADERS. This is the month when days are getting Longer and on Ground Hog Day, February 2nd, if the Ground Hog sees sunlight and his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter. Valentines Day, February 14th, is a day to express LOVE to your family and friends. It is also a day to stop and think about your Life and if it is what you want and how you would want it to be. Presidents Day is February 15th, a day to honor our LEADERS George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Washington was an active member and Master of his Masonic Lodge. Many other Presidents have been members of the Craft and Harry Truman was a Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, while he was President. February is also Boy Scout month and the first week of February is the National Boy Scout Anniversary Week. The Boy Scouts have a significant tie to Freemasonry. In the late 1800’s, Daniel Carter Beard formed an organization for boys known as the Society of the Sons of Daniel Boone. Lord BadenPowell formed the Boys Scouts of England, modeled after Daniel Carter Beard’s organization and in 1910 Daniel Carter Beard merged his organization into the Boy Scouts of America. The year 2010 starts a year long celebration of 100 years of Scouting Fraternally, Paul H. Schutz, Sr. WM
