The Surveyor George Washington 1776 Lodge #337 F&AM Trestle Board March/April 2006 Message from the East The contributions of every Brother in our Lodge are important. Some brothers are limited by geographical location, physical condition, or time constraints, yet we are all able to make meaningful contributions to the Craft. It all starts with you. The following are some easy ways to be involved: • Help fill the sidelines for a degree. • Come to a meeting • Attend a dinner or social event • Volunteer for a committee • Give another brother a ride to Lodge Even if you are constrained by time, physical condition, or geography, you can do the following: • Talk to a friend or Colleague about the Craft • Visit a Brother or Widow • Call or write a brother you have not seen for a while • Send a note and let us know how you are doing. If not you, then who? Without you, the Brethren, this Lodge cannot function. Your input is valuable and desired. We have countless years of Masonic experience in our membership, and it would be a shame not to be able to call on that experience and expertise for the benefit of the Craft. Fraternally, Andy Paradowski, Worshipful Master
