BIOGRAPHICAL RICHARD LEE SMITH Richard L. Smith was installed as the 172nd Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons of Missouri, on September 27th, 2016. Upon his installation, he also became the first incoming Grand Master to have previously received Missouri’s highest Masonic award for distinguished service to the Fraternity, the Truman Medal. M.W. Brother Elmer E. Revelle (2004-2005), awarded Brother Smith the Truman Medal in 2005. In contemplating the selection of the recipient of the Truman Medal, M.W. Brother Revelle asked himself two questions: (1) “What brother has given such distinguished service that the impact of his work is still felt today throughout Missouri Freemasonry and will likely continue to be felt in the future?”, and (2) “What brother can I hold as a positive example when I issue the challenge to ‘Live in Harmony’?” M.W. Brother Revelle found the answer to his questions in his selection of Brother Smith as the recipient of the 2005 Truman Medal. These questions also serve in defining the Brother elected by the Brethren of the Grand Lodge of Missouri to lead them as their Grand Master for the Masonic Year of 2016-2017. The journey of life that brought Richard Lee Smith to Masonry began on December 8th, 1933, when he was born in Clayton, Missouri. He and his older brother Charles were raised in a single parent household by their mother Gladys Smith. Early memories of his childhood include outings in Forest Park with his mother of which there exists a photograph of one such day in 1936 that captured a smiling young mother and the sparkle in the eyes of a very happy little boy who was enjoying the world. It was during this time of Richard’s life that he first became aware of Freemasonry. His maternal grandfather, Bro. E. Brown was a member of Wellston Lodge No. 613. Because of the connection of Richard’s grandfather to Freemasonry, Richard remembers his mother’s admonition that “someday Richard, you should become a Mason.”

Most of Richard’s early life was spent in University City area except for about a year and a half when he lived on a farm in an area of south-central Kansas, six miles from the town of Severy. He had just turned nine years old, so he was placed in charge of some chickens and a rabbit, he attended a one-room school house where he and a girl comprised his grade, and at times he knew hunger. Things didn’t work out well in Kansas, and Richard’s family returned to the University City area where he again attended Pershing Elementary School, after which he attended and graduated from Normandy High School. Richard’s working life began as an operative mason when he became an apprentice bricklayer. He stayed with this trade for five months when he made the decision to join the U.S. Navy during the Korean conflict. As a young enlisted sailor, Seaman Smith served on the aircraft carrier USS Cabot which was stationed in Florida at the Pensacola Naval Air Station. While they did not meet at the time, this is the same aircraft carrier upon which M.W. Brother K. Earl Dille (1982-1983) earned his carrier landing proficiency. Richard was then stationed overseas where he successfully guarded the Panama Canal. Richard received an honorable discharge after three years of service and returned to Missouri where he resumed his apprenticeship as a bricklayer, but he realized that he needed to go to school to advance his life. He thought that maybe he wanted to go to college, so he drove to Columbia to visit the University of Missouri. He said that his only real thought while on campus was “how do I get in this place.” Richard’s experience with the Navy, a good interview, and the backing of the GI Bill had Richard sitting in class two weeks later. Eventually, Richard transferred to Washington University in Saint Louis where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree. It was also at Washington University where Richard met June Hartig in a public speaking class, and they were married in 1963. June later graduated from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis. She later completed a master’s Degree in special education, and she went on to a successful career in Special Education. Having graduated from Washington University, Richard Smith embarked on building a career and being involved in public service. His career highlights 5

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

include serving a major oil company, real estate sales and marketing, which includes sales in the first Saint Louis condominium community. His public service includes serving as President of the Sales and Marketing Council of St. Louis, being a member of the Missouri Association of Mortgage Professionals, and accepting a Gubernatorial appointment to serve the Missouri Division of Finance on the Residential Mortgage Board of the State of Missouri. During these career years, Richard and June were also building their family. They have a son Benjamin, who is a Master Mason, a daughter Holly Ann Day, and they are blessed with grandchildren and a great-grandchild. These were good times spent with family and friends boating on the river or enjoying motorcycle rides. An interest in Freemasonry began for Richard during his time with the Navy. It was while he was stationed in Panama that Richard heard more about the Fraternity and thought more of the words of his mother that “someday Richard, you should be a Mason.” Richard was not yet twenty-one years of age, so he was not eligible to petition a lodge, but he was of sufficient age in 1952 to allow him to successfully petition and join the Balboa Chapter of DeMolay, in the Panama Canal Zone. In 1974, Richard again pursued the idea of joining the Fraternity. This time he as was of proper age and he petitioned Rose Hill Lodge No. 550, where he was subsequently initiated, passed and raised. Brother Smith served as Worshipful Master of his lodge in 1981 and again in 1991. His service to the Fraternity is so extensive that even the list that follows this biography fails to capture the care and diligence that Bro. Smith gave of his time to serve the needs of Freemasonry in its many forms. Highlights such as his election to the Board of the Masonic Home of Missouri, being Coroneted a 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Freemason, receiving the Truman Medal, or being elected as Grand Master of Masons are what might first come to mind when describing the highlights of Richard Smith. But the overwhelming highlight for Brother Smith has been the people that he has been able to meet and the people that he has been able to serve. M.W. Brother Smith’s service to the Grand Lodge began as a District Deputy Grand Master in 1983-1984 under M.W. Brother Robert J. Crede. 6

That service continued and expanded through committee appointments which included the Masonic Education Committee. Under his leadership, the Masonic Education Committee has given to us The Entered Apprentice video, the educational booklets for each of the 3 degrees, the Officers Manual, and the restructuring of the Achievement Award. It was also during this time that Richard served M.W. Brother John Mark Nations (20052006) as a Grand Orator, M.W. Brother M. Robert Berger (2006-2007) as a Grand Pursuivant, and M.W. Brother Bruce R. Austin (2007-2008) as a Grand Chaplain. M.W. Brother Smith’s journey to the Grand East began when he was appointed to the Grand Line by M.W. Brother Rocky E. Weaver (20082009). It was a journey highlighted by visitations and communications with the best of all that Missouri Masonry can offer to all of its membership. It was a time of travel and growth that was enjoyed by all who had a moment to share in the honor and dignity of the journey. The Masonic Year of 2016-2017 began with the installation of M.W. Brother Smith on that last Tuesday of September in 2016. A description of the year of all Grand Masters is best reserved for their address and the address of M.W. Brother Smith is contained within these pages of the Annual Communication. How best to describe the service of M.W. Brother Smith as Grand Master is found in the answers to the questions which were asked by M.W. Brother Revelle in 2005. The impact of the work of M.W. Brother Smith was felt throughout Missouri Freemasonry, and will be felt far in the future because of his efforts in rising to the challenge of giving us the ability to “Live in Harmony.” In all of the journeys of Richard L. Smith, both outside and inside Freemasonry, there was a subtle gift that he allowed us to share. It was there for every adventure and challenge before he became Grand Master. It was there the day he was installed as Grand Master and all the way through the last day he served as Grand Master. It is the unchanged enjoyment of the world that was captured in the sparkle of the eyes of a very happy little boy from a photograph in 1936.

Right Worshipful Brother Kevin B. Sample called up the Grand Lodge and guests for the reception of the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri, Most Worshipful Brother, Richard L. Smith, from St. Louis Missouri, escorted by the Grand Sword Bearer, Right Worshipful Brother Phillip R. Cary, of Winfield MO. Grand Master Smith proceeded through the reception lines and the Knights Templar Honor Guard, passing under an Arch of Steel, after which he took his station in the East. The Senior Grand Marshal, Right Worshipful Brother Kevin M. Fuller, led the Craft in the Grand Honors and Grand Master Smith then thanked the Craft for honoring the office of Grand Master. The Grand Master was then presented with the Gavel of Authority.

WELCOME AND PRELIMINARY MATTERS Grand Master Smith’s first order of business was to pay tribute to our late Most Worshipful Past Grand Master, Most Worshipful Brother Jack Montgomery with Brother Paul DeMerath, called up to play Taps. Grand Master Smith then took the opportunity to explain the significance behind the Past Grand Master’s Jewel, he has worn during the year. The beautiful Jewel was created in 1905 for Most Worshipful Brother, A.S. Houston, of Hebron Lodge No. 345. The jewel had appealed to him when he noticed it in the museum at the Masonic Complex in Columbia. The Grand Master stated that not only did he find it incredibly beautiful, but he also discovered Most Worshipful Brother Jack Montgomery had worn this Jewel, instead of having one crafted for him during his term. The funds saved by Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery’s Jewel, were turned into a scholarship program at Missouri State University, in Cape Girardeau. Grand Master Smith so greatly admired Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery and had traveled many miles across the State of Missouri with him during his term and he felt honored that Hebron Lodge No. 354 would have loaned this specific Jewel to him for his term of Grand Master. Grand Master Smith expressed his desire for the funds saved for his Jewel, be added to Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery’s scholarship fund at Missouri State University. Grand Master Smith then called up the Craft and called upon Right Worshipful Brother Alan E. DeWoskin, Grand Chaplain, to lead the invocation. After prayer, Grand Master Smith, asked all to remain standing for the presentation of the National Colors of the United States of America by the Heroes of ’76, National Sojourners of Missouri. The Colors were presented in the East and Grand Master Smith then led the Grand Lodge of Missouri in the Pledge of Allegiance followed by an instrumental of The Star Bangled Banner, performed by the Scottish Rite

Brass band. The Grand Master then thanked the Band and The Heroes of ’76 and then seated the Brethren and guests with a rap of the “Truman” Gavel. The Gavel being used was the same Gavel used by Most Worshipful Brother Harry S. Truman during his Grand Lodge Session and it has been used to open the Grand Lodge of Missouri ever since. Grand Master Smith then introduced Right Worshipful Brother Nicholas R. Cichielo, Past Grand Treasurer of the Grand Lodge of Missouri and asked him to deliver the Annual Communication Welcome.

WELCOME MESSAGE – RWB NICHOLAS R. CICHIELO Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo began by speaking greatly of the Masonic fraternity and all the good it has done in the world, country, and community. He expressed praise to all Freemasons for their contributions to the many Masonic philanthropies, including the Masonic Outreach program, Scholarship programs, and the Masonic Children’s Foundation’s Child Identification Program (MOCHIP). He expressed great admiration for the short time it has taken for the Missouri Lodge of Research and Library to be recognized beyond our jurisdiction and remarked that we all should be proud of these accomplishments. Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo stated that, even though he has relocated to Florida, his heart will always be with Missouri Masonry. He continued that he often hears praise of the accomplishments that Missouri Masons have achieved from Lodges he has visited in Florida and He then concluded his welcome stating that Missouri Masons stand on the threshold of even further greatness. Grand Master Smith, thanked Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo for his message, and then expressed further praise for the contributions he and his wife Lori have made in the development and success of MOCHIP. Right Worshipful Brother Dr. Ty G. Treutelaar, President of the Masonic Children’s Foundation of Missouri was then given the opportunity to thank Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo. Right Worshipful Brother Treutelaar stated “Nick and Lori have been the backbone to Missouri’s Masonic Children’s foundation and MOCHIP”, and although they have moved to Florida, they are going to assist the Board of the Children’s Foundation with re-invigorating MOCHIP from a market that has matured to an aggressive market again. Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo, was then presented with a “Thank You” award for his achievements with MOCHIP and also accepted an award for his wife Lori, who was unable to be in attendance, for her dedication, vision, and commitment to excellence for the Children’s foundation. Right Worshipful Brother Nicholas R. Cichielo, was then given a Special award, as a Thank You for always taking Lori’s advice, which received great applause and laughter by the Craft. Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo, then thanked all for their appreciation and stated as State Coordinator and Administrator for MOCHIP that He and Lori had such pride in the work that Missouri Masons have done in achieving nearly 250,000 registrations which assisted authorities in recovering 10 children that had been

abducted and are now back safe at home with their families. Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo said, although the beginning was tedious with a lot of coordination of borrowed equipment that had to be transported to various locations across the State, the program grew and grew, Thanks in large part, to the late brother Ronald P. Krueger of Tuscan Lodge No. 360, who presented the Children’s Foundation with two $25,000.00 checks to help get MOCHIP started. Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo, then reminisced that twelve years ago, when he was elected Grand Treasurer, someone had asked him if he was going to give up MOCHIP? Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo’s response was, “You never give up on your children”. He then expressed thanks for the overwhelming welcoming he has received from Missouri Freemasonry since he joined. Grand Master Smith thanked him and stated “There are parts of this job that make your heart sing, and that was one of them”.

INTRODUCTIONS DISTRICT AND REGIONAL GRAND LODGE OFFICERS Grand Master Smith, asked for all the District Deputy Grand Masters, District Deputy Grand Lecturers and the Regional Grand Lecturers to stand. He remarked to the members and guests that “All these Brethren make The Grand Lodge and Masonry work and function in Missouri. They are the eyes and ears of the Grand Master, as well as the eyes, ears and worker bees of the Grand Lecturer.” He furthermore stated that through their untiring effort they keep us legal and concentrated on Ritual as much they can and he then thanked them for their hard work, then asked them to be seated.

The Knights Templar Honor Guard were reconvened and the Most Worshipful Past Grand Masters of the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri were introduced by Right Worshipful Brother Kevin B. Sample. The Past Grand Masters were escorted to a place west of the Altar by the Senior Grand Warden, Right Worshipful Brother Robert T. Thomas and Grand Master Smith then called up the Craft and Right Worshipful Brother Kevin M. Fuller, Senior Grand Marshal, led the Craft in according the Past Grand Masters with Grand Honors. Grand Master Smith seated the Craft with a rap of the Gavel and then welcomed the Past Grand Masters to the One Hundred and Ninety-Sixth Annual Communication. Most Worshipful Brother Smith, then asked Most Worshipful Brother James A. Noland Jr. to speak on behalf of all the Past Grand Masters on their response to the welcoming speech. Most Worshipful Brother Noland showed his appreciation for Grand Master Smith, the Grand Treasurer, and the Grand Secretary. He explained that he is a disabled veteran from World War II and his life has been beset with difficulties and danger, including having his back broke on a ship on its way home from the war. He stated that for 69 years he has had Brethren support and encourage him and he wants all the craft to know that this is the greatest fraternity on the face of the earth. In his statement He stated that he has come to realize why it’s so great; Brotherly love, relief, and truth. Love we have for one another. Without any hesitation he then said that he has truly enjoyed his journey with us all. He then expressed his sadness he has experienced this past year, the loss of two Grand Master’s, one whom appointed him and the other whom followed him in the advancing line. The greatest loss he has experienced however, was the loss of his beloved wife of 60 years who had accompanied him to most of the 65 years of Grand Lodge sessions that he has attended. He again stated again that life is full of difficulties and danger, and he greatly appreciated the kindness and support from his brethren. Recently his faith in the brotherhood has been renewed, because of one young man who moved into his community. This young man, belongs to 2 different lodges, yet he takes the time to look in on him and to take him to Lodge meeting or anywhere he needs to go. This act of kindness is rewarding to older Masons and means a great deal to them. He said though Life is a journey full of difficulties and dangers, it’s also beset with many blessings. He said that as he is getting closer to his destination, the greatest joy he could have, is to know his destination, because before you ever become a Mason the most important question you can have is; In whom do you put your trust? And if you weren’t serious about it then, I bet you become more serious about it, because that destination is something out of this world. Most Worshipful Brother Noland then thanked Grand Master Smith and the attendees then concluded with, “God Bless America, this fraternity and God Bless you all”. After a hearty applause Grand Master Smith thanked Most Worshipful Brother Noland and stated “He always leaves us applauding and standing on our feet”.

Most Worshipful Brother Willis said that it is a very crucial time in the city of St. Louis, and he is very thankful he is a child of the most High, because he does not get caught up in the daily struggles of man. He stated that he is a praying man, that puts all his trust in Him and he further stated “I will not be caught up in the politics and the rigors of this daily life”. Most worshipful Brother Willis commented that he knows there is a better way and that he met with the Mayor and Police Chief of St. Louis, to say to them; As I look at what is going on within our city, this is a problem that must be solved internally, I would beg to say 95% of our first responders are all good, but we must look inside and get rid of that blue code, we must go inside our neighborhoods and get rid of the snitch policy and purge our divisions. If they are not right for us, if they’re not serving us and with the leadership let’s stop putting them in office, we have that right, we can change our communities, we must change our communities, this is a fraternal order that is predicated and based on the fact that we are all men, we came in this order and one of the sayings we often go by is; we take good men and make them better, but in the cause of justice we must stand and stand for what we truly believe in. We must stand because we have youth, and if we are to be role models for our youth, that are to continue to follow in our footsteps, we must set the tone, let us as Prince Hall Masons Accepted Free Masons, four letter Masons, let us raise the bar, we have professional business men within our organization, we have men from all walks of life within our organization, let’s not say that we’ve reached a pedestal of our organization. See with me, I believe that once one man makes it you go back to from whence you came and you go back and get someone and bring them back with you, let us not set on our laurels and say this is the way it is, I made it. No, because you know what there was one day when someone reached back and gave Henry Willis a hand, and I will forever be grateful to that individual. Most Worshipful Brother Willis then spoke of Brother Walt Sawiki, crediting him for being a good man and saying he learned a lot from him during the days they worked together at Chrysler Motors. He then continued I don’t see color, I see knowledge, I see respect, I see love and I see harmony, because as we say in our ritual, harmony being the strength of all institutions more especially this of ours. Let’s not just talk the talk, lets walk the walk. Let us know when we hit the streets, and everyone says, that there my brother is a Mason, let them say that when I see them coming I feel the love, I feel the respect. Within our homes, because a lot of things that are originating in the streets, begin within our homes. Let us also go back and put that Holy Script back into our daily lives, because you see, Prayer is the key. There is no Politician that can solve any issue that is going on today, but he who is the creator of all, he who is the giver of good gifts, is the one that lets us breathe this air that we breathe every day, so why not go to our creator and ask for his love and forgiveness, that we may all come together on one accord, that we all may come together as one and solve these social ills that are plaguing us. I know that this is a Grand Body here, and you probably didn’t come to hear all of this, but I am not one to script or write anything down, whatever he

put in my heart, that’s what I put out through this microphone. I am so glad I am a member of this organization, I am proud that I am a Mason, I am proud that I am a Prince Hall Mason and I am proud to be here with you today. Most Worshipful Brother Willis then addressed Grand Master Smith and relayed to him that he is honored to have shared several occasions with him this past year and thanked him for his attendance at their annual Grand Session as well as his Grand Master’s Testimonial. Most Worshipful Brother Willis concluded with; The love, friendship, morality and brotherly love we all share it should run amongst all of us, it should make no difference the color of your skin, we are all in this together, because when you were made a Mason they didn’t ask you, what color are you? Where did you first get Masonry my brothers? It was in my heart! Let’s go back and revisit our oath and obligation, let’s figure out where we truly are today and if that bell tolled for you that last time, ask yourself where would I stand? Most Worshipful Brother Willis then thanked Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo for the MOCHiP program, stating that Prince Hall Masons are very thankful for the use of it, and they are in the process of trying to get together their own equipment, to implement the program themselves. Grand Master Smith then dismissed the ladies and guests, asking all who are not Master Masons to retire.

FORMAL OPENING OF THE GRAND LODGE OF ANCIENT, FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI The Grand Master and Grand Lodge Officers opened the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri on the Third Degree of Freemasonry in accordance with the Missouri Ritual.

Right Worshipful Brother Jones then asked the Craft to please take time to read the Masonic Home Report, in the Report Book. He stated it contained information that would be of great interest to the Craft. He then said he would like to take a few minutes to talk to the craft, as Brother Ron Jones, Master Mason; In September of 2004, I was elected off this very floor to the Board of Directors, just like our two brothers were a few minutes ago. I was a fairly young Mason, without much knowledge of the Masonic Home. So, when we went to work, and I got my first board packet, it was a little overwhelming. We spent the next several years learning about what we do. My last year on the Masonic Home Board, we had a case that was brought before us, to ask for assistance to help a little girl, named McKinley. McKinley was


2017

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

severely handicapped, she had some self-abusing tendencies, which made it very difficult for her mother and father to take her to the doctor, or to take her anywhere. She would try to bang her head on the windows, or hit herself, or others. So, they came with a request for the Masonic Home to purchase a van, so that it could make travel a little easier, they could take her wheel chair and put it in the middle of the van, to make it a little safer as they done their travels. We read this and agreed to purchase this van for this family. Over the next several years there were requests made for assistance, always for her never for themselves even though there were times, I am sure they could have used the help. Their only concern was her. We done everything we could to help make her life easier. The reason for me standing here today is because, earlier this year we received one final request. They asked for assistance with her funeral expenses, again assistance was granted. The thing that needs to be taken away from here, is that fact that; from the very first day until the very last day, we said yes. There were 13 of us, but in reality, there was almost 40,000 because it was each and every person in this room that gives, so that this family could have a little better life with their daughter. McKinley’s Father, Brother Hall is with me today. We spoke earlier, and he said the one thing I want you to do, is tell this Craft to please keep giving, so we can help more children like our sweet little Angel McKinley. His words to me was “She was a tough one�, we got to know her over the years, and she was so special. But, again all of this comes from you, not the 13 people it is the 35,000 now. The Halls just want to say, thank you, thank you, thank you. Right Worshipful Brother Jones asked Brother Hall to stand. I just want to say, thank you for allowing me and this body to share just a few minutes of the story about this little Angel, so that we maybe can help some other children and adults in the future. Thank you, so much and God Bless.

ADDRESS OF THE GRAND MASTER ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY-SIXTH ANNUAL COMMUNICATION To the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Good Morning Brethren, it is my pleasure and honor to welcome you to the one hundred ninety-sixth annual communication of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the Grand Lodge of Missouri. I especially want to welcome our Past Grand Masters, our visiting Masters, jurisdictional officers, and visitors. I refer to our gathering as a communication, because it is during these communications that we gather to reflect on the past, discuss the present, and look to the future of our fraternity. It was during our communications that we created the Masonic College, The Masonic Home of Missouri, The Outreach Programs, The Masonic Children’s Foundation, and also at which we elected their board of directors, and their leaders. To all of you I ask; Who comes here? It is a question that each of us, as Free Masons have been asked. It is a question that you, should ask me, and it’s a question you ask yourself, as you listen to my voice. During this Masonic year the resignation of the Junior Grand Stewart and a Grand Pursuivant, were accepted. As a result, the following officers were installed; Right Worshipful Brother Charles F. Wiegert, Junior Grand Stewart, Right Worshipful Brother Kevin M. Fuller, Senior Grand Marshal, Right Worshipful Brother Joshua A. Thompson, Junior Grand Marshal, Right Worshipful Brother James L. Lowman, Grand Pursuivant, and Right Worshipful Brother Stanley R. Oberman, Grand Pursuivant.

THE OFFICE OF THE GRAND SECRETARY I wish to thank the Grand Secretary, Jeffrey S. Pennington, for the exemplary manor in which he has conducted himself, and the many hours he has given his position. His management skills and dedication the perfect talents that enabled him to successfully step into a very difficult situation. I also want to thank each member of his office team for their commitment to the Grand Lodge and Grand Secretary Pennington, especially Mrs. Chrissy Gessling. Chrissy made the arrangements for our travels for all Grand Lodge Officers. My deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences, go out to the staff member Vicki Huber, for the loss of her daughter Sara. Sarah passed away suddenly, and I believe she was only 24 years old and had only been married for one year. Sarah was their only child. The efforts of the Grand Secretary and his office staff, have been unprecedented in their scope of attention and direction to the individual lodge secretary’s. The cooperation and support of the lodge secretaries has yielded increasing accurate information, which in-turn enables the Grand Lodge office to be even more supportive of the lodges and the lodge secretary’s. I would like to express my gratitude to each of the lodge secretaries for their work and effort to update the lodge membership information. This information not only serves as a benefit to each lodge in Missouri, but also allows the Grand Lodge office to finally work with accurate information for budgets and membership, there by adding substantial value to the Grand Lodge data base.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

STATE OF THE CRAFT Thanks in part to the Lodge secretary’s the office of the Grand Secretary now knows we have approximately 35,800 Missouri Masons, but they know that only 22,800 and some are dues paying members. However, that I am pleased to inform you that the Grand Lodge Officer’s and The Ways and Means committee have produced an accurate and balanced budget. We now have a budget based on the value of our assets, the prudence of our investments, and the support of our per capita. A lack of knowledge, and the fear of a falling sky have been removed. The assets and investments of The Grand Lodge have been leveraged with great care and supporting our fraternity, however I must approach the subject of per capita. We must remember that these assets and investments will soon need the additional support of an increase in per capita for future growth and planning, and to maintain the heritage and traditions of Missouri Free Masonry. It will interest you to know, that after removing the cost of the mileage and per diem payout and the pass-through dollars of the annual assessments, that the net amount of remaining to operate The Grand Lodge of Missouri is approximately $9.65. The skillful management of The Grand Lodge office and The Ways and Means Committee have managed our assets and income, which allows us to maintain our current per capita. Consequently, the resolution for an increase in per capita will be withdrawn from this communication.

GRAND LODGE TRAVELS Grand Lodge Officer travel is essential to the success of every jurisdiction. Traveling to other jurisdictions, expands their personal understanding of how other jurisdictions function, and promotes the exchange of ideas that might be of benefit to Missouri. A prime example to consider is the MOCHiP program, it was brought to Missouri as a result of Most Worshipful Brother Rocky Weaver having attended the 2004 Conference of Grand Masters of North America. Under the leadership of Right Worshipful Brother Cichielo, Missouri MOCHiP has become the model for other jurisdictions to follow. Consequently, in this Masonic year, your Grand Line Officers have attended annual communications in; Arkansas, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Prince Hall of Missouri, and additionally they attended the Midwest conference of Grand Masters, as well as The Conference of Grand Masters of North America. I personally have attended annual communications in; California, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, and Prince Hall of Missouri. Additionally, I was honored to represent you at the National Meetings of The Conference of Grand Masters of North America, The George Washington National Masonic Memorial, The Bicentennial celebration of Scottish Rite in Washington D.C., and the Imperial Shrine session. There were many events that made this year in the Grand East special, which include; visits to the Order of the Eastern Star Annual communication, Amaranth annual meeting, York Rite Grand session, DeMolay University camp, Grand Master’s Royal Arch class, Job’s Daughters Grand Bethel, Cryptic Council Grand Master’s class, International Order of Rainbow for Girls assembly. It was a particular honor to attend The Prince Hall, Most Worshipful Grand Master Henry R. Willis Jr. testimonial dinner, which I thank Most Worshipful Brother Willis and his officer’s. In Kansas City, The Kansas City Scottish Rite gave a wonderful program on the Masonic influence in architecture in our country. In Branson, The Oklahoma Indian degree team performed the Master Mason degree on their candidate in a corporate cave in Branson. It is a day that is made for

remembering. Speaking of remembering, The Chair of Remembrance ceremony that numerous Grand Lodge officer’s and I attended at Swope Park Lodge was exactly that, a night to remember. I hope that other lodges will learn of this ceremony and adopt the thought of remembering in their Lodge, The Brethren, loved one, or a friend that is no longer with them.

IN REMEMBRANCE Later today you will hear from the Necrology Committee, however I must state that in addition to the numerous important brothers that we have lost, we have also lost two Past Grand Masters. Most Worshipful Brother J. Morgan Donaldson and Most Worshipful Brother John C. Montgomery Jr. Most Worshipful Donaldson passed away last year, but his memorial service was conducted during the current Masonic year. The Grand Lodge officers conducted his Masonic service in his Methodist church in Princeton Missouri. Most Worshipful Brother John C. Montgomery Jr. passed away in January of this year in St. Charles Missouri, his Masonic service was conducted by me with the assistance of numerous Grand Lodge officers. It was attended by three Past Grand Masters, many Masonic members, friends and family. In addition to these revered Past Grand Masters, I would also like to note the passing of the Honorable Janice Noland, the former first lady of Masons in Missouri and the wife of our Senior Past Grand Master James Noland. Judge Janice Noland was a well-known and distinguished Jurist and extraordinary Masonic First Lady of Missouri.

Holm, which was originally dedicated in 1932 by Grand Master Ray V. Denslow. With the notice of the impending sale of the New Masonic Temple building, it became prudent for the statue to be re-located to its new home in the lobby of the Masonic complex, in Columbia Missouri. Many brethren were instrumental in this successful relocation of the statue; Nick Cichielo, Henry Eirich, Jeffrey Pennington, Vern Schneider, Bernard Stever, Ty Treutelaar, John Vollmann, and Charles Wiegert. We appreciate the effort and the support of the Masonic Home, in allowing us and helping us to place Brother George Washington’s statue there, in the lobby. George Washington is often revered because he was a Master Mason. We all know that he was much more than that, he brought to us and to the world, the hope that this experiment in government, a government built on the landmarks and principles of Freemasonry. He made real to us, an era in which individuals had an actual invoice in the affairs of their country. You, the brethren that come here today are the legacy of George Washington and the Masonic Founding Fathers, it is your privilege and earned privilege for you to be in this room. The privilege seldom thought about was pre-paid for you, by our Masonic predecessors. They kept Masonry alive for each succeeding generation, including us, just as we are keeping it alive for unknown future brethren. They built the magnificent Masonic buildings, many of which still stand today. Many of our predecessor brothers worked a full 6-day week, just to earn enough money to willingly pay their annual dues. Unknowingly, they did this for us. We are the unknown and unimagined recipients of their pride and respect for their Masonic fraternity. As you learned earlier, because of their un-masonic conduct two of our former members are no longer eligible to be present in this room. I feel certain if George Washington were here today, he would urge you to guard your privilege to be in this room and to consider it as precious. Just like you and just like me, George Washington was asked, Who Comes here? Who could have imagined the amazing young man, the stewards were conducting through that inner door? The next time you hear a candidate knock on the inner door, knowingly recall the first question he will hear and enjoy the excitement of wondering, Who Comes Here? ========================================================= Deputy Grand Master Jones announced that, pursuant to the By-Laws, the Address of the Grand Master would be forwarded to the Committee on the Grand Master’s Address for its review and subsequent Report and he then returned the Gavel of Authority to Grand Master Richard L. Smith.

MONDAY AFTERNOON SESSION CALLED TO LABOR With the assistance of the Grand Lodge Officers, at 1:30 p.m. Grand Master Smith called the Craft to Labor.

ELECTION OF GRAND LODGE OFFICERS Grand Master Smith next called for the election of the Grand Lodge officers for the ensuing year. He appointed Right Worshipful Brother Thomas L. Truman, as Chairman for the Election and the District Deputy Grand Masters from the even numbered districts as Election Tellers. Grand Master Smith then explained the ballot and voting procedure. The ballots, distributed at registration and used last year, provide two options. If in favor of advancing the line and retaining the Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer, the top box should be checked. The second option provides for writing in the names of the brothers who you wish to hold the elected offices. The two options are exclusive; one or the other must be chosen. Checking the top box then writing in a name will spoil the ballot. Grand Master Smith then asked if there were any questions, and none appearing, he declared the voting to commence under the direction of Right Worshipful Brother Truman.

GRAND LODGE OF OKLAHOMA While the votes were being counted Grand Master, Smith called upon Right Worshipful Brother C. Corky Grigsby Jr., Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of the State of Oklahoma, to say a few words: Most Worshipful Grand Master of The State of Missouri, Grand East, My brethren all. I’m a Missouri Mason, so before I came up here my guys told me, from Oklahoma, just a few words. You know in Oklahoma we talk a lot, we get going. My brethren we have been coming here many years to The Grand Lodge of Missouri, this is such a great state, this state is so alive with Masonry you just couldn’t imagine how it is. Sir, it is always our pleasure to come to Missouri. In Missouri they get it done, they do it right and they do it with all the help of the brethren. We in Oklahoma, we look to the North at you guys, what you do, what you stand for, your Chips program, your assemblies, your Grand sessions, you guys are just amazing. I stand here and tell you, as an Oklahoma Mason and a Missouri Mason, I am so proud of what this state does for Free Masonry. In Oklahoma we like to come up here to your Grand Lodge sessions, because we learn a little

bit and we take some things home and we try them and whether they work, they work. We know that everywhere that we g, if things work, they do and if they don’t, well you put them on a shelf and let somebody else try it a little bit later. To all my brethren in Missouri, I take a lot of pride in standing here before you and a few words to say how proud I am of you. I belong to Swope Park Lodge No. 617, I am very very proud of them. My Father belonged there, my Uncle belonged there, my cousins belonged there. That’s my family lodge. So, I go back a long way with them. Most Worshipful Grand Master you have had a wonderful year sir and we do nothing but give you a lot of kudos for everything this state does and what the brethren do for you. Grand Master Smith thanked Right Worshipful Brother Grigsby and concluded with; “I think what we just seen when these two brethren embraced is the result of friendships that have developed over a number of years. It’s a continuation of our deep affection and enjoyment of both of these jurisdictions together. We value you being here and very much appreciate it”. Right Worshipful Brother Grigsby lets Grand Master Smith know that when Right Worshipful Brother Jones is installed as Grand Master, he will be installed shortly after as Grand Master of Oklahoma; “I think Oklahoma and Missouri is in trouble”.

GRAND LODGE OF IOWA Grand Master Smith then called upon the Grand Master of Iowa, Dennis Toby Williams to speak. Most Worshipful Brother Williams brought greetings on behalf of 262 lodges, and nearly 17,000 masons from Iowa. He thanked Most Worshipful Brother Smith for all the hospitalities and courtesies extended to him and that he had learned some things he will be taking back to Iowa.

MASONIC SERVICE ASSOCIATION Grand Master Smith then called upon Past Grand Master Simon LaPlace, Executive Secretary of The Masonic Service Association (M.S.A.). Most Worshipful Brother LaPlace stated that the M.S.A. sends out short talk bulletins to every lodge and suggested that the brethren encourage the bulletins to be shared within the lodge. He talked about the Hospital Visitation Program, where the M.S.A. is certified by the Veterans Affairs Administration to visit and volunteer at more than 100 V.A. Medical Centers across the country. Volunteers and Representatives; “go and shake a hand of every vet”. Most Worshipful Brother Harry S. Truman started that Veteran program in 1947. Most Worshipful Brother LaPlace then presented Grand Master Smith with a plaque, on behalf of the M.S.A. that reads; “This is a Certificate of Appreciation presented to Richard L. Smith, Grand Master of Missouri. Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to work

together in unity. Given in sincere appreciation for your abiding interest in and strong support of The Masonic Service Association’s programs, giving time to our national hospital representatives and encouraging those representatives, deputies, and volunteers of Missouri. With this certificate go our best wishes of success and service to our gentle Craft.” Grand Master Smith receiving the plaque humbly thanked Most Worshipful Brother LaPlace whole heartily. Most Worshipful Brother LaPlace then continued to discuss the 3rd leg of the M.S.A., Disaster Relief. He discussed that the recent floods and hurricane in Texas caused their Grand Lodge to put out a disaster relief appeal to the M.S.A. The M.S.A. sent out this appeal to all the Grand Lodges who then sent it to all their lodges and within a week, the M.S.A. had over $50,000 and within 10 days they were able to issue a check for $150,000 to the Grand Lodge of Texas, and when he returns to the office he is able to issue an additional check to them for $150,000 more for their needy brethren. He said that this is all possible because of the brethren and the Lodges showing their compassion for their brethren in need. The Hurricane that hit Florida, also caused an appeal from the Grand Lodge of Florida. Several days after that appeal was sent out, he received a check from a Lodge in Massachusetts for $50,000. He also received a single check from a brother for $2.00, he said he didn’t look at it as it was not enough, because they asked everyone to send what they could. If every Mason would send $2.00, we could send 2 million dollars. He concluded with an appeal to the Craft to go to the website and donate. “We are Masons, we donate, and that’s just what we do”. Grand Master Smith praised the M.S.A. for what they do and encouraged the Craft to submit donations to whatever relief fund that is appealed by the M.S.A. on behalf of the State of Missouri.

REGIONAL RITUAL AWARDS Grand Master Smith then turned his direction to Right Worshipful Brother Dave Wheelock and asked him to present the Regional Ritual Awards. The Grand Master commented “These awards given to Brethren who are always available to help in general and are just always there for whatever needs to be done.” Right Worshipful Brother Wheelock then called up the following Brethren to come receive their Plaque and be recognized. Region A Region B Region C Region D Region E Region F Region G

GRAND LODGE OF KANSAS Most Worshipful Brother Lyn Byer, Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Kansas was asked to take the podium to give a few short words. He spoke of the dilemma in Masonry of decreasing membership. He mentioned that Brothers will get into a pattern, they go to lodge, they do their duties in lodge, but they don’t reach back and pull someone with them. “Or, maybe we don’t reach out to our sphere of influence, to discuss Masonry.” He then quoted a poem by Brother Edgar Guest; Show Me I’d rather see a Mason than hear one any day; I would rather one walk with me than merely show the way, the eye is a better pupil, and more willing than the ear, fine counsel is confusing but example’s always clear, and the best of all Masons are the Men that live their creeds, for to see the good in action is what everybody needs. I can soon learn to do it, if you’ll let me see it done. I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run, And the lectures you deliver may be wise and true, but I’d rather get my lessons by observing what you do. For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give, But there’s no misunderstanding How you act and how you live.

MOST WORSHIPFUL KENNETH HURMENCE, PGM (GRAND LODGE OF IOWA) Grand Master Smith, welcomed Most Worshipful Brother Ken Hurmence, Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Iowa. Most Worshipful Brother Hurmence discussed the pleasures he had as Grand Master and how wherever he had traveled he noticed the sense of hope, belonging, and worth. He also discussed one’s need for a sense of hope, belonging and worth and how that can be used to increase Masonic membership. He spoke highly of Grand Master Smith and his Lady. Stating that while he was in Washington D.C. for the Bicentennial Scottish Rite function, waiting to board their plane to go home. He spotted Grand Master Smith and his Lady waiting at the airport as well, and they were entertaining a toddler who had grown bored of the airport and their extended wait and was full of energy. He said they played Grandparents to that little boy and help relieve the stress of his parents by entertaining him. They didn’t know they were being watched, by the Iowa brethren. He thought to himself what a tribute to the Missouri Masons, because he is living proof of what Masonry is all about. He said that we all should feel positive about our fraternity and remember those words we take at that altar have meaning. As long as we do this, Masonry will continue to thrive.

REPORT OF THE MISSOURI LODGE OF RESEARCH To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The Officers of your Missouri Lodge of Research will have had six meetings during the year by the time of our next annual membership meeting during Grand Lodge. Our energies this past year have focused on getting books to our membership, continuing to develop the Masonic Library, the Foundation securing liability insurance to satisfy our Library Use/Space Agreement with the Masonic Home of Missouri, engaging speakers for the Truman Lecture Series, having our By-Laws reviewed for needed changes, engaging Williams Keepers LLC of Columbia to file our Form 990EZ for the year ending October 31, 2016 and budgeting for 2017-2018. For a second year, we sponsored a free movie to those arriving Sunday evening for Grand Lodge. This past year, two of our own officers stepped up to help with programs for the Truman Lecture Series. The annual Missouri Lodge of Research Breakfast during Grand Lodge featured our Jr. Steward, RWB Ty G. Treutelaar, Senior Grand Steward, who presented a program titled “Unsealing the Great Seal of the State of Missouri-the Masonic Connection”, which revealed the influence of our Masonic Fraternity with the symbolism within this Great Seal as well as how the efforts of our Brethren from the past can help guide us toward the future. The mid-year meeting featured P.G.M. John W. Hess, our Librarian, who highlighted interesting facts of the heritage of Masonry in Missouri intertwined with the Grand Lodge and York Rite bodies discovered as Librarian sorting through items now on display in our Masonic Library. We owe a grateful acknowledgement to both Brothers Treutelaar and Hess for demonstrating some of the rewards of being a participant and supporter of the Missouri Lodge of Research. A review of our By-Laws prompts us to ask consideration with the definition of “Active Membership”, “Life Membership”, and “Associate Membership” to simplify membership levels, and how Petitions and proposals for Membership can be accepted and implemented to bring the By-Laws in compliance with established practices. The primary revenue for the Missouri Lodge of Research “Lodge” is membership dues and revenue from our investments. Our primary expenses are books for memberships, newsletters, administrative fees to the GL for help with operations, and financial assistance to the MLR Foundation for maintaining the Masonic Library. The Missouri Lodge of Research Library continues to evolve under the leadership of our Librarian, John W. Hess, who reports 12,680 items have now been catalogued

as of August 15 . th

Our book for membership paying dues for 2018 will be a special Missouri Lodge of Research Edition of “Ancient Manuscripts of the Freemasons”, a 6x9” paperback special order run authored by Michael R. Poll of New Orleans, LA. We hope to have it available at the annual Grand Lodge Communication. We were very pleased to receive a special donation of $3,500 this past year from the “Widows Sons Masonic Motorcycle Association” to the MLR Foundation, who are now also endowed members of our Denslow Society. We were notified in December that PGM Brent Stewart had resigned as an officer of the Missouri Lodge of Research. Due to the vacancy, Master Houge appointed Russel L. Pence to the Advancing Line as Tiler, Dale R. Roller as Sr. Steward, Ty G. Treutelaar as Jr. Steward, and Thomas L. Truman as Marshal. On behalf of the Officers serving this past year, we thank all our members for their continued support, interest, indulgence, and identity with the Missouri Lodge of Research in our mission to preserve, promote, and cultivate Masonry in the State of Missouri. Respectfully and fraternally submitted Gail S. Turner, Secretary-Treasurer REPORT OF THE MISSOURI LODGE OF RESEARCH LIBRARIAN To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The Missouri Masonic Research Library is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year at the time of the Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Missouri. The Library was dedicated in September of 2012. Since that time an effort was made to unbox and catalog the books and history of the Grand Lodge which were stored in “Boxes in the Basement” As of this Grand Lodge Communication over 12,600 items have been cataloged and placed on the shelves of the library for archival purposes and masonic study. A recent article in the Missouri Freemason detailing the Masonic life of Samuel “Mark Twain” Clemens acknowledges the source of some of the information came from the Missouri Masonic Library. In the past year the Library received a large quantity of records and books from the Grand York Rite. An effort is being made to catalog all the annual returns of the York Rite bodies and make those returns available for research as part of the library. In the material from the York Rite some interesting and historical books and other

items were also found. A hand typed copy of Ray V Denslow’s notes on “Early Missouri Lodges” and a white leathern apron presented to Grand Secretary Frank Gouley while he was attending the laying of the cornerstone of the Philadelphia Masonic Temple in 1868. The Library was also pleased to receive a significant donation of over 800 books and magazines from RWB Don Huggins. This included a complete collection of the Masonic Book Club, the complete collection of “Heredom” and a complete collection of books published by the Missouri Lodge of Research. Additional titles included numerous books on the Knight Templars and books on world religions. Recently, the Library received a large donation of books and magazines from RWB Dennis Fetter which originated from Freedom Lodge and Algabil-Freedom Lodge No. 636. This collection is still in the process of being cataloged at the time of this report. Over the past five years over 3,000 man hours have been donated to catalog the collection and the library has received assistance from various Masonic Bodies during its monthly work days. As we approach the 200th anniversary of the Grand Lodge of Missouri the Missouri Masonic Library will be a tremendous asset in telling the story of Masonry in Missouri from 1821 to 2012.

MONDAY NIGHT AWARDS BANQUET Grand Master Smith welcomed all those attending the Grand Lodge Banquet and introduced the Grand Lodge Officer and their Ladies as they processed to the front of the banquet hall. He was joyous about very warm welcome Grand Master Elect Ronald Jones received. Stating, “We are in for a fine year in Masonry in Missouri. Most Worshipful Smith then commenced with providing the prayer.

AWARDS

Right Worshipful Brother Richard W. Kaeser, Jr., Senior Grand Stewart read the list, description and requirements for the several Awards that are issued by the Grand Lodge and then proceeded to call out the Brethren and Lodges that were being recognized. The Brethren came forward and were presented with their Awards by the Deputy Grand Master, Right Worshipful Brother Ronald D. Jones and the Senior Grand Warden, Right Worshipful Brother Robert T. Thomas. After receiving their award the Grand Master greeted each awardee and personally thanked them for their Service and commitment to the Fraternity.

TRUMAN MEDAL JOHN W. SISCEL III One of the greatest opportunities given to the Grand Master is to select and recognize a particular Missouri Freemason for having given distinguished service to the Fraternity.  That Brother will be thought of and recognized as one of a select group of Missouri’s Outstanding Masons. Since being created in 1983, the annual Truman Medal award can boast it contains the names of many of Missouri’s most revered and highly regarded Freemasons. Numerous extraordinary Missouri Freemasons were seriously considered for selection. H o w e v e r, I w a s p l e a s e d t o s e l e c t RW B J o h n W. S i s c e l o f Gardenville-Cache 455.  After the announcement,  it was gratifying to receive many unsolicited approvals and congratulations on his selection.  Brother Siscel is known and respected throughout the state. While he served as Chairman of the Committee on Masonic Education, I witnessed John traveling to virtually every part of Missouri to attend various Grand Lodge events, Grand Master’s Area meetings, and even to Foreign Jurisdictions to attend the Mid-West Conference on Masonic Education events.  Brother Siscel’s period as Chairman of the Missouri Education Committee was exemplary.   His acceptance of appointments by Grand Masters to various committees and to Grand Lodge Offices continues to this day, and stands as a testament to his commitment to Missouri Freemasonry.

I asked him for his biography and discovered that it was over 3 pages long; here are the highlights. He was born in 1946, married his wife Barbara and has one son. He has a degree in history and a Masters and PHD in School Administration. He was a teacher, administrator and superintendent and served on several boards of educational institutions He was raised in Meridian 2, but later transferred to Gardenville (-Cache) No. 455 and served twice as WM. He has held 3 Grand Lodge offices and served on 4 Grand Lodge committees, several of them for multiple years. Beyond his commitment to Missouri’s Blue Lodges, John has also risen to the Highest Offices in numerous appendant Bodies of Missouri Freemasonry. It is inevitable that our honored Brother will proceed to other exalted Offices, but henceforth, RWB John W. Siscel will always be honored as the 2017 recipient of Missouri’s highest appointed honor, The Truman Medal.

The Brethren of Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446 have, for several years, provided sack lunches to children on their summer break who typically rely on the public school lunch program for their lunch meal. Brother Adam James stated that Brother Keith Jordan, who has been very instrumental in making the project a reality and keeping it going, recently received a community award for this program and when receiving the award he stated, “When kids need help, you help them.” This program positively reflects the values of the Brethren of Ivanhoe Lodge No. 446 and Missouri Freemasonry.

TUESDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 26, 2017 8:30 A.M. CALLED TO LABOR Grand Master Smith called upon Right Worshipful Brother Daniel Ward, Grand Chaplain, to give the opening prayer. With assistance of the Grand Lodge Officers, Grand Master Smith called the Craft to Labor in accordance with Missouri Ritual. Grand Master Smith welcomed the Brethren to the second day of the One Hundred Ninety-Sixth Annual Communication and then made the following announcement; Brethren, The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri, has invested in the Grand Master the exercise of such powers that are warranted under the ancient regulations, unwritten charges, immemorial customs, and unwritten principles of ancient craft Masonry and is necessary for the welfare of this fraternity. For much of it’s history The Grand Lodge required a candidate to demonstrate suitable proficiency in the preceding degree, prior to advancement. Seventeen years ago, the membership following careful deliberations, determined that requirement would lead to such further decline in membership. As to endanger the existence of the fraternity in Missouri as we know it. This year a number of well meaning Brethren have sought to reimpose that requirement to protect the ritual that they rightly feel to be a hallmark of this great fraternity. However, despite their admirable intentions, I believe to do so, in this way, would further destabilize the membership, which continues to decline. Any attempt to require a proficiency in this State, after such a lapse must be accompanied by a reasoned action plan, to allow for it’s success. Under this authority, I as Grand Master have determined to remove the proposed amendments to 2.010Q and 16.040 for consideration, by The Grand Lodge at this annual Communication. These are amendments that would reinstate a proficiency in Missouri. I encourage study and consideration, of proposals which would contain a plan for careful implementation of a new form of proficiency in this State. However, as this legislation has been submitted, I cannot in good conscience allow it to move forward. I have been informed, that a special committee will be formed to consider the ramifications of all the Lodges return of the proficiency requirement and that it can be done without harming the subordinate Lodges. Thank you. Grand Master Smith then called upon Right Worshipful Brother Jonce Chidister, Chairman of the Committee on Jurisprudence to give the continuing report on the Committee on Jurisprudence.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

PROPOSED LEGISLATION FOR ACTION THIS SESSION CONTINUING REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON JURISPRUDENCE Right Worshipful Brother Chidister relayed that the Grand Lodge had received a sufficient number of votes from the subordinate Lodges to allow the proposed Constitutional amendment to move forward. Proposed amendment No. 2; to add Grand Musician and Grand Historian to the list of officers in the Constitution and in the By-laws. It has been found in due form, Jurisprudence Committee has found it advisable, and It is supported by the Grand Line. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Most Worshipful Brother David Haywood, Past Grand Master spoke on behalf of this proposal. He mentioned that we need a Grand Historian, because in 4 years we will celebrate our 200th anniversary and that we need to have records put together to show what The Grand Lodge has been, is, and will become. Worshipful Brother John Schaffer of Carthage Lodge No. 197, opposed the proposal. He stated we already have too many Grand Officers in the Grand line, which he feels do not appear to be doing much since he has seen few in his Lodge. Right Worshipful Brother Jim Fiete of Webster Grove Lodge No. 84, stated that he used to play the Organ during Annual Communications and that he believes it would be advantageous to this Grand Lodge to have a Musician they can count on. “You can’t expect someone to be there when you need them, unless they know they should be there and they are entitled to be there”. No further speakers appearing, Right Worshipful Brother Chidister directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 3; amendment to section 1.050 and 31.085, which would allow for but not require electronic voting. It has been found in due form, Jurisprudence Committee has found it advisable, and It is supported by the Grand Line. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister moved for its adoption and it was seconded. There were no proponents or opponents that wished to speak, however there was a question as to what the dollar amount would be for these devices. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister explained that the by-law as written leaves discretion to the Grand Master, it did not require electronic voting, it allowed electronic voting. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 4; amendment to section 1.070 and 2.040, which would authorize the utilization of electronic proxies. It has been found in due form, Jurisprudence Committee has found it advisable, and It is supported by the Grand Line. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister moved for its adoption and it

was seconded. Finding no proponents or opponents that wished to speak, Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 5; amendment to section 1.046 and 8.031. Titled electioneering defined for purposes of elective Grand Lodge office and electioneering defined for purposes of subordinate Lodge office, adding to the definition portion of electioneering. It was found in due form, the Grand Line did not take a position on the legislation. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Finding no proponents or opponents that wished to speak Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 6; amendment to section 3.100, Budgeting. It has been found in due form, after conferring with The Committee on Ways and Means it has been found it advisable. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Finding no proponents or opponents that wished to speak, Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 7; the 1st proposed amendment to section 7.060, Stated Communications. This is the addition that stated communications must be opened on the first degree of Freemasonry and then advance to the highest degree of the lowest degree member present, allowing for the Lodge to open directly to a degree, for purposes of Degree conferral. The Jurisprudence Committee found it to be in due form and took no further position. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Finding no proponents or opponents that wished to speak Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 8; the 2nd proposed amendment to section 7.060 and add an additional section 7.065, would allow the Master of a Lodge, with notice, to begin a stated communication up to 60 minutes earlier than the time set by the by-laws. The Jurisprudence Committee has found this to be in due form, however, The Jurisprudence Committee deemed it not advisable. The Grand Line Officers, oppose the legislation due to the possibility that a Master could use it to circumvent the requirement of; Business that must be conducted at stated communication at a time set by the by-laws, and would allow the Master to schedule those items for earlier times, again in-order to circumvent the traditional process. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Worshipful Brother Garcia-Hidalgo of St. Louis Missouri Lodge No. 1, stated that he was a Proponent. He explained that his Lodge has so many new members coming in sometimes, that 15-30 minutes is not enough. They currently have five 1st degrees, three 2nd degrees, and one 3rd degree and they need to start earlier, not because they want to change the time but because some of the Brethren do not have the time, to come again on a 2nd date.

Worshipful Brother Bob Thompson of Tuscan Lodge No. 360, stated he opposed the legislation and that he knew of Brethren that have to come straight from work just in time for the regular business meeting and they make it. With no other proponents or opponents appearing, Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Proposed amendment No. 9; amendment to section 16.020, which would eliminate the reading prior to the second section of the third degree. It did not repeal the by-law, it would repeal the reading of the by-law. The Jurisprudence Committee found it to be in due form and advisable. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Right Worshipful Brother C.T. Harrison of Troy Lodge No. 34, stated that; “I understand that we should already know this, but we take three minutes and read this thing and yet people still act up on the sidelines and nothing is done, so what’s three minutes out of your time, is really that big of deal to read it?” Worshipful Brother Keith Army of Mount Vernon Lodge No. 99, stated “There is acting up on the side lines, even if we read it or not. But, it’s the Master’s responsibility to take control of his Lodge. Yes, there is general horseplay or joking during a meeting but during any degree it should be a solemn experience. That Candidate can only experience it once in his life. I don’t think that we should have to read something, we should know to shut the hell up, during a degree”. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then spoke on the Support for Masonic Youth Resolution that was read the day prior and that it was found to be in due form by Jurisprudence. Renewal of the $1.50 assessment per Master Mason paying dues by each Lodge to; maintain, enhance, improve and support the three officially recognized Masonic Youth organizations in the State of Missouri. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then moved for its adoption and it was seconded. Most Worshipful Brother Dave Haywood of Webster Groves Lodge No. 84, stated that this is just a continuation of what we have been doing, to support the Masonic youth. Right Worshipful Brother Chidister then directed the Craft to please mark their ballots, and after all eligible members had voted, he declared the ballot closed.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON NECROLOGY As the legislation results were being processed Grand Master Smith called upon Most Worshipful Brother Dr. Elmer E. Revelle, Chairman of the Necrology Committee to deliver the Report. Most Worshipful Brother Revelle began by informing the Craft; The Necrology report today has been taken from the 2006 Grand Lodge session, which was the last year that Most Worshipful Dr. J.C. Montgomery served as Chairman of The Necrology Committee. It is also interesting to note that there are two members of the Necrology Committee submitting the report this year, the third member would have been Dr. Montgomery, who died before the report was put together. It is a moment of personal privilege, in that, as I called him “Jack” and I go back to 1967, he was one of the most meaningful persons in my life vocationally, as he provided for my first appointment as a Clergy colleague and then I feel certain that he whispered into the ear of Most Worshipful Brother Robert Crede and I was appointed a Grand Chaplain in 1983, so his footprints have been on my life for many years as well as I know for many of you, so with that being said, we move into the report of the Necrology Committee. Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, an aging Mason tells of climbing many steps to his Lodge hall. He pauses to catch his breath, wondering if he can continue. Then he remembers with gratitude those that have gone that way before him; Brethren who has recommended him, those who had initiated, passed, and raised him, those who’s Masonic example and teachings lived in his daily life as well as in his memory. Somehow, it became easier to take those additional steps and sit once more in that sacred retreat of friendship and virtue. In these moments you and I are called to just recollections. That great Masonic speaker and writer of two generations ago, Joseph Fort Newton, in his book “Builders and Brothers” wrote, “there come thoughts of those who walked with us in other days and have vanished, they were noble and true. Their friendship was sweet, and the old road has been lonely since they went away. Toward the end of life is like a street of graves, as one by one those who journey with us fall asleep but if we walk the road of the loving heart and make friends with a great companion, we should not lose our way, nor left alone when we come at last, as come we must like all Brothers and fellows before us, to where the old road dips down into the valley of shadows”.

The Grand Secretary tells us that from the reports of our constituent Lodges; 1,233 of our Brethren, have laid down the earthly working tools of the Craft to make the journey to that Grand Lodge on High. It is our prayer that they may rest from their Labors. Certain of our Brethren have serve the Grand Lodge in special capacities, either as a Grand Lodge Officers, District Deputy Grand Masters, District Deputy Grand Lecturers, or Regional Grand Lecturers. It is customary that we recall them at this time. As we do so, we acknowledge that our Masonry is better and own lives are more fulfilled because of them. The passing of a Grand Master or a Past Grand Master requires more detail, not because he is necessarily a better man or Mason, but because the Grand Lodge has given him both the opportunity and the responsibility of wider and more numerous fields of service. This you see as we recite the history of the Reverend Dr. J.C. Montgomery Jr. On December 27, 2015 Free Masons from around Missouri gathered at Polar Star Rose Hill Lodge # 79, to celebrate 75 years of Masonic membership of Most Worshipful Dr. John Carol Montgomery, Jr. It was a wonderful time of paying honor and tribute to one who has contributed so much to the Fraternity and the larger community. Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery, attended Southeast Missouri State now University where he earned two degrees and followed that with Graduate Study in History at the University of Michigan following a brief time of teaching, he entered the U.S. Army and served in WWII. Among his assignments was studying Italian at the University’s of Nebraska and Washington. Then becoming acting first Sargent of the 119th Italian service unit an Italian Prisoner of War company working at various ordnance depots. Upon returning to civilian life, he taught one semester before pursuing his life’s vocation as a Clergyman in the Methodist, now United Methodist Church. Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery did Graduate work at Peabody College in Nashville and graduated from seminary at Vanderbilt University. Later in his ministry Central Methodist College, now University awarded him the Honorary Doctor of Divinity degree. He served as Pastor and District Superintendent until his retirement in 1984. Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason, December 27, 1940 in Charleston Lodge # 407, even though he was a member of East Prairie Lodge #384. As he moved in his ministry he became a member of other Lodges and served as Worshipful Master of Ionic Lodge # 154. In 1959 he was appointed Grand Chaplain by Most Worshipful Brother Harold O. Grauel and served as such with the exception of one year, until he was appointed Senior Grand Marshal in 1970, by Most Worshipful Brother William H. Chapman. He then served as Grand Master in 19781979. Most Worshipful Brother Montgomery was active in several other Masonic bodies and served as the Editor of Missouri Free Mason for 17 years and The International Royal Arch Mason for 12 years.

REPORT OF THE BUILDING SUPERVISORY BOARD To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, This year the Building Supervisory Board responded to numerous requests for information on the Grand Lodge By-Laws regarding the sale, lease, and purchase of properties and structures for lodge halls. While the Supervisory Board was pleased to respond to these requests for information, it did so with the admonition that such requests should first be directed to the District Deputy Grand Master. The following proposals were submitted for approval: •

Puxico Lodge No. 596 asked for clarification as to whether the Grand Lodge owned any of the property occupied by Puxico Lodge. The Building Supervisory Board responded with the suggestion that Puxico examine its real estate documents, but ownership of local lodge properties by the Grand Lodge was extremely unlikely.

Compass Lodge No. 120 requested temporary relocation to Alpha Lodge’s hall. This relocation had been approved by the Grand Master and the District Deputy Grand Masters involved. The Building Supervisory Board also approved this relocation on the condition that it was truly temporary. To assure this condition the Building Supervisory board granted an approval that ends on June 1, 2018. The Building Supervisory Board also informed Compass Lodge that the information submitted to date was not sufficient for Building Supervisory Board approval to construct a new lodge hall. Plans need to be submitted in sufficient detail to allow the Building Supervisory Board to review estimated costs to build and occupy the new lodge hall and Compass Lodge’s plans to pay for those costs.

Colony Lodge No. 168 requested approval to rent property for Lodge meetings. The Supervisory Board approved the request, with certain stipulations. The Board suggested the lodge work closely with the District Deputy Grand Masters and retain a lawyer to assist in the development of an appropriate lease agreement.

Close to the end of the 2016 Grand Lodge year Gower Lodge No. 397 requested approval to move forward with construction of a new lodge. This request carried over to this year. Gower Lodge responded to several follow-up questions from the current Building Supervisory Board. After review of the responses to these requests the Building Supervisory Board approved Gower Lodge’s request to move forward with construction.

At the time of the writing of this report, the Building Supervisory Board is working with the Grand Secretary and appropriate DDGM’s on several outstanding questions from Hebron Lodge No. 354 and Hallsville Lodge

No. 336. We recommend the Building Supervisory Board appointed by the incoming Grand Master monitor developments on these lodges’ requests. It should be noted that the Building Supervisory Board can only speak to the requirements of the Grand Lodge By-Laws. It can’t speak to the fulfilment of any other legal, real estate, permit, or other requirements necessary to implement construction plans for any subordinate lodge. The Building Supervisory Board has requested the Jurisprudence Committee examine this issue. Fraternally yours, Daniel F Cole (Chairman) Jon B. Broyles Steven I. Toybes

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON BY-LAWS 196th ANNUAL COMMUNICATION To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren: Your Committee on By-Laws is pleased to report that an updated version of the Constitution and By-Laws again has been placed on the Grand Lodge website. In the interest of conserving Grand Lodge funds and limiting printing and postage costs, the amendments passed and adopted at the 195th Annual Communication have not been distributed to the lodges, however, those amendments are contained within the updates. The Committee continues to review the annotations to provide guidance to the Craft, and we trust that these annotations are both informative and helpful in understanding and interpreting the By-Laws. These annotations are derived from the will of the Grand Lodge as expressed through Resolutions and approval of Grand Masters’ Edicts, Decisions, and other actions. The Constitution and By-Laws contain a wealth of historical information, beyond just “Masonic Law”, and we hope the Brethren are taking advantage of this valuable resource. The many provisions of the Constitution and By-Laws should be in harmony with each other and clearly outline the procedures by which the Grand Lodge is governed. The By-Laws should be continually examined to determine whether or not they reflect the best practices and policies of the respective committees. The Craft must always bear in mind the Committee is only the keeper and editor and the Constitution and By-Laws and does not have the ability to alter the meaning or substance of any provision. Therefore, any Committee revision or edit must be only technical in nature and conform to the will of the membership as expressed through the formal Masonic legislative process. The Committee, therefore, looks to the brethren to propose and adopt substantive changes. The task of updating the Constitution and By-Laws necessarily must be a work in progress. We sincerely appreciate the brethren continuing to inform the Committee of any errors or needed corrections should they be discovered. Respectfully submitted, Henry M. DeWoskin Kenton T.

Trends: There were 7 Lodge consolidations, which is the most in years. As Lodges struggle to maintain stability, we expect to see more consolidations. An analysis over the last 5 years shows some alarming trends. We have lost 12,342 members due to deaths and non payment of dues, which is 34% of our membership! Total membership has decreased by 6478, an average of 1275 per year. This past year membership deceased by 2956, over twice the 5 year average.

Master Masons raised over the last 5 years was 4880, an average of 976 per year. The preceding year 1028 were raised, this past year 921 Master Masons were raised, 107 less than the preceding year and 55 less than the 5 year average. The number of Entered Apprentice (67 less) and Fellowcraft (51 less) degrees were considerable less also. The number of deceased members over the last 5 years was 5975, and average of 1195 per year. This past year we lost 1401, the preceding year 1270. We see this trend continuing to be more each year. The number of members suspended for non payment of dues over the last 5 years was 6277, 17.5 % of our total membership! This is an average of 1250 per year. This past year, 1778 members were suspended for non-payment of dues, 528 above the average. The preceding year, 2032 were suspended, so while we have done a better job this past year, we still have work to be done! The number of members reinstated after suspension for non-payment of dues was 692, 332 more than the preceding year (360). This number is encouraging as it appears some effort is being made after members have been suspended to get them reinstated. The number of affiliations, demits, withdrawals of multiple memberships, expulsions, new fifty members and endowments have stayed relativity the same as the preceding year. Committee suggestions: Something has to be done to halt the increasing number of members being suspended for non-payment of dues! We cannot continue to allow a loss of over 17% of our membership every 5 years! It is obvious that the efforts we are presently doing are not working! This is a tricky situation, because the Grand Lodge should not be telling subordinate lodges how to run their Lodges, but they can make recommendations. Perhaps the DDGM’s need to get involved? This committee does not have the answers (we wish we did), but we do know something has to be done. More of an effort needs to be made after members are suspended to see if they can become reinstated. We have no control over the number of members we lose every year from deaths. We have some control over the number of new members we are bringing in to our fraternity. Members need to continue to find and sponsor quality men. Someone in your family, someone you work with, someone you attend church with, someone who’s been your friend for years. You can ask them to become a member. Printed materials are available for you to give them that explain what Freemasonry is about. It’s win – win situation, you help them to fulfill (and better) their lives, and you help your Lodge to prosper and grow. And do not stop after just asking them, mentor them! Be there to help get them acquainted with your Lodge, introduce them to other members, explain and instruct them in the things we do.

This committee is impressed with the quality and consistency of the numbers that are now being provided for our analysis. It is obvious the new data base system is working, and as improvements are being added, it only becomes better. But it can only be as good as the numbers the Secretaries supply. Secretaries need to be aware of the dates data is requested, and get their reports filed on time. The DDGM’s should be made aware of Lodges that are not following the guidelines, and see if there is anything that can be done to see the guidelines are followed. As reported above, the dates for this committee analysis is based on July 1 through June 30th of each year. There are many reports that are not submitted by June 30th each year, for which adjustments need to be made. It might be helpful to get a “snapshot” of the numbers on October 1st each year, as the number then might give a more accurate account of the year to year changes. Fraternally Submitted, Charles F. Wiegert, Chairman Michael L. Dodd John P. Tate Robert J. Wheeler Sr.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, Last year, this Committee reviewed a small number of the published proceedings of companion Grand Lodges and affiliated entities that had been made available to the Committee by the Office of the Grand Secretary and the Missouri Lodge of Research. During this year, the Office of the Grand Secretary established a procedure by which all correspondence and proceedings received from our companion Grand Lodges and affiliated entities were forwarded to the Committee. While the Committee labored diligently to complete its review of the materials received, interruptions caused by the Chairman’s travel schedule for his various Masonic offices, editing of the summaries of the correspondence reviewed was yet underway on the date of publication of the Preliminary Proceedings of the Grand Lodge. A completed report will be submitted with summaries for publication or availability as may be ordered by the Grand Master. The Committee has also adopted a timeline to follow for the timely completion of its duties for the 20172018 Masonic year.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FORMS AND CEREMONIES To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, Your Committee on Forms and Ceremonies has received two requests for consideration during this Grand Lodge year. The first was a recommendation for a Masonic Bible Presentation ceremony and a Masonic Apron Lecture, and the second was a clarification for the use of the Grand Honors. Both of these requests were received late enough in the year that a formal response is not available in time for the printing of this report, but they will be addressed and evaluated as each will be given due consideration. The Masonic Bible Presentation emphasizes its value as the source of Great Light in Freemasonry and challenges us to use it as a rule and guide in our quest for Truth and Light. The Apron Lecture (Ceremony) illustrates the significance of the lambskin in reminding us to strive for higher thoughts and nobler deeds. The use for the Grand Honors has been questioned as there appears to be limited guidance for when they can or cannot be given. It is evident there is no uniformity across the state for its use with the 50 Year Pin Ceremony or as part of Masonic Funerals. It is very likely that researching our Ancient Landmarks and Masonic Customs for precedents may well reveal alternative applications for the Grand Honors. The ultimate recommendation could come down to the merits of whether it is better to have the recipient of the Grand Honors alive to observe the honor than have only his non-Masonic friends and family see it at his funeral. These will be interesting issues to evaluate.

REPORT OF THE GRAND LECTURER To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, This has been a most enjoyable year traveling throughout the State and meeting so many of our Brethren. Every visit proved to be very enlightening as we conducted our schools and we had many good times. I thank you for your warm receptions. In addition to the Schools of Instruction I had the privilege of attending and participating in many other events including 50 year pin presentations, officer installations, the conferral of degrees and other special events. One event of special note was re-certifying the Charlie’s Angels Degree Team. While attending these events I observed, in some areas of our State, a noticeable improvement in the quality of the Ritual work, and in some places the improvement has been more than just noticeable. It has been remarkable. This improvement is the product of individual study, regularly scheduled practices and study clubs and schools of instruction led by the District Deputy Grand Lecturers and the Regional Grand Lecturers. In other locations there has been very little, if any, improvement shown so there is still much work to be done. I encourage all Lodges and/or Districts to consider forming some sort of study club or schedule regular ritual practices. You will be proud of the results that such an activity will produce. The District Deputy Grand Lecturers will be happy to assist you and instruct. The Regional Grand Lecturers are available for some of the sessions when their time permits. Your Grand Lecturer is also willing to attend and assist when possible. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the excellent work that has been done by our District Deputy Grand Lecturers this past year. Their efforts are to be commended and are genuinely appreciated. Our Regional Grand Lecturers go far above that which I have the vocabulary to express. Their knowledge of, their dedication and devotion to, and their tireless efforts for the betterment of the Craft are exemplary. It is an honor to have had the opportunity to serve as your Grand Lecturer this year. I feel that progress has been made and am looking forward to continuing working with you in the future. Respectfully submitted, G. David Wheelock Grand Lecturer

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RITUAL To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The Committee on Ritual met on Saturday morning, August 12, 2017 and was called to order at 7:30am with the following members present. RWB David Wheelock, Chairman, RWB Greg Golden, RWB Glen Burrows, RWB Robert Martin, RWB Tom Kuhn, RWB Chris McLemore, RWB Randy Jennings Also in attendance were Deputy Grand Master, RWB Ronald Jones; Junior Grand Deacon, RWB Ty Treutelaar; RWB Donald Allen, RWB Joshua Thompson and RWB Mike Minton. The following items were presented for discussion. 1) Sub card examination guidelines state that the certificate is to be submitted to A DDGL, RGL or the GL. Should the guidelines be changed to read that the forms are to be submitted to the home district DDGL, RGL or GL. Decision: Leave as is. It would be appropriate to courtesy copy the DDGL/RGL of the home District as this information is needed to complete their reports. 2) Should there be another Sub card created to include receiving petitions, balloting, dispensing with labor, calling to and from labor, late arrivals and lost passwords. Decision: Leave with 10 cards and do not change SUB 3 requirements. These areas are taught and need to be learned as a Lodge for completion of Lodge Ritual Award. 3)

SD movements in the 2nd section of 2nd degree to begin the lecture.

Decision: SD stops candidate 2 steps north of the center of the lodge and after Stewards are seated , SD then advances 4 steps to 2 steps South of the centerline of the Lodge, takes 1 step East then turns North facing the candidate to begin the Lecture.

4) 2 section of the 3 degree: after reporting to KS, SD returns to S line of craftsmen. What are his steps and does he do a R or L turn. nd

rd

Decision: Left crossover step, one additional step to rejoin the S line of Craftsmen and turns Left. He does not turn his back to KS. 5) 2nd section of the 3rd degree: JD timing and movements with regard to placing the pillow under candidates head. Decision: After Rs say “agree”, JD stands in front of his chair and obtains pillow, when Rs turn east on the centerline, JD moves North to CL of lodge so as to avoid floor conflicts , then follows Rs East to be ready for placement of pillow, JD makes crossover step with left foot and returns directly to chair. 6) After balloting, do JD, Marshall and Chaplin return to their seats via travel line or chair line? Decision: Everyone uses the travel line except JD who uses his chair line. 7)

What should be the 1st sign made at the grave?

Decision: When Marshall steps in, all give Sign led by KS (due guard of MM), then give GHSD led by KS. 8) After the candidate receives the working tools in the 2nd and 3rd degrees, and after the demand for metal in the 1st degree, SD steps up on the word “conducted”. When does he pick up the candidate? Decision: SD steps up on the word “conducted”. SD picks up candidate after the Master is finished speaking. 9) Vouching for a Brother during opening: Can ONLY one from whom the password has already been collected (or one to the left) vouch for a Brother who has lost the password? Decision: If the Master can vouch for the brother vouching, any brother may vouch for the visitor.

10) During the “Letter G� when the Craft is rapped up to bow, should the SD and JD pick up their rods? Decision: No. 11) Stewards side steps in first sections of the 3 degrees. Should this be changed? Decision: No. The Stewards need to move so as to be 5 foot off the centerline of the lodge before moving west. This is achieved by the stewards making a side step. The meeting was adjourned at 9:15 Respectfully submitted David Wheelock, Chairman

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

REPORT OF THE GRAND SECRETARY To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren: It is with great appreciation and gratitude that I submit to you my second report as your Grand Secretary. This great appreciation extends to all of the people that are involved in the day-to-day operation of our great fraternity. Freemasonry never sleeps. Our charge to “Do Good Unto All…” does not have “…During Normal Business Hours” included in the statement. Many of the things that we do or that need to be done occur, when they occur, and therefore flexibility is needed to accomplish our mission. Day or Night, Rain or Shine, the mission of our Craft remains constant and that mission is accomplished by our membership and facilitated by the leadership of the craft. Lodge Secretaries are among those leaders that are charged to, among many other things, to observe the proceedings of the Lodge, record what is necessary for historical purposes, and to keep accurate records. Depending on the size of a Lodge just the “keeping of accurate records” can extend to being a full time Job. A full time job that is, under no rights less, than absolutely necessary for the health of a Lodge. The need for accurate records today extends long into the future for your Lodge, typically a lot longer than the tenure of a Lodge Secretary. The need for accurate records will extend all the way to a Brother’s final Masonic Rites and is especially important to our fraternity when we extend our heartfelt gratitude of a life well spent in service to a Brother’s family after he has passed away. When a Brother’s long standing service to the Lodge and the Grand Lodge is recorded and preserved it shows reverence and respect to him and what he is about long after he has passed from this natural realm. A Petitioned Date will show the “Moment” a man realized he there is something more to gain in receiving more Light in his life. An Election Date will mark the time a Brother’s Lodge displayed confidence in him to allow him in their house. An Initiation Date will mark the Day he started his Journey, a Passed Date will show his continued work toward perfection, and a Raised Date will mark the day he became aware of the true nature of himself and of the gift that was given to him. Brethren, these dates are not arbitrary days on a calendar, they are milestones in a man’s life and are probably some of the most important days in a Brother’s life. A Brother may not see that today, that is not for me to say, but in his Twilight, things become more clear and we therefore owe it to our Brethren to keep these things very close to our own hearts and maintain accuracy in everything we do. In an effort to assist our Lodge Secretaries in Missouri, we are now going into our third year of a new way of record keeping for the Lodges. This new way of record keeping is by the Lodges and the Grand Lodge using the exact same data. No longer will there be an issue of Lodge Records and Grand Lodge Records not matching. The Online Membership Portal (Database) however, is not just a list


158

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

of all of your members, their contact information and their Masonic History, it is an all-inclusive record keeping and communication mechanism that allows Lodges to record all of their routine business, making operations at the Lodge level more efficient, and makes communication with their members easier and less expensive thereby keeping their membership engaged with what is going on in the Lodge and thus, in many cases, bolstering activity. During this year we have added many new features and enhanced some of the existing ones that allow for Lodges to increase member engagement. The Lodge Secretary can now type a message to his entire Lodge with the POST feature and it will email that message instantly to every member with an email address. The Lodge Secretary can also now place an EVENT from their Lodge Dashboard such as Stated Meetings, Special Meetings, and various other Fundraising Events or Ceremonies and every member in the Lodge with an email address is sent a notification of the Event. Additionally Members not in that Lodge can see those events by going to the LODGE LOCATOR located on the Grand Lodge Website (www.momason.org) and then entering the Lodge Name or Number or even the City Name that the Lodge is located in into a search field. When submitted, a Lodge Page will display the Events and various other information about the Lodge such as the current Lodge Officers and the Lodge Meeting times. A Lodge Dues Collection system was brought online late into the collection process but when used will allow a Lodge Secretary to record when dues and various other voluntary donations are sent in on behalf of a member. Automated reported and letters can be generated for those members that are delinquent which should greatly assist in the dues collection process. A list of members that have not yet paid for the year can be generated immediately with all the contact information available for the delinquent dues committee to assist them in making contact with our members for reminder of annual dues payment. The Grand Lodge Office operation continues to evolve as we continue our effort to reduce expenses and become more efficient in how we operate. This is all an effort to better serve the craft by being strict stewards of the funds entrusted to us. Your Grand Lodge Office constantly looks for ways to reduce the expenses without reducing our service. I realize that this takes some time to change the way we have done business for hundreds of years, but I am asking for your continued flexibility and adherence to these changes in hope that we will be able to offer a better product, not only to our members but to our communities and future members. Many of our long term contracts for office technology expired this spring. This enabled us to greatly reduce the amount that we spend for office technology. In negotiating a new contract we were able to reduce the expense of office technology from over $4000.00 per month to just over $1000.00 per month that it takes to do our routine Grand Lodge printing and correspondence and our mail operations. This is nearly $36,000.00 per year that we are now saving and without a reduction in service to the Lodges. The office staff also broke the code in how to conduct bulk mailing operations in house which further saves over $5,000.00 per year in postage costs. That combined with sending email instead of regular mail when

practical has resulted in a savings of over $10000.00 per year in postage. The Grand Lodge Office has reduced operational expenses nearly $50,000.00 per year over the past couple years and though your Investments have done remarkably well this fiscal year, over 94% of the gains in these investments are in Restricted Funds that do not fund a majority of the annual operation. The gravity of the Grand Lodge operational situation is that day-to-day operations rely on Grand Lodge Dues, and on various other revenues from administrative and vendor contracts. Unfortunately, each year, we are losing Dues Paying Members (DPM) at a staggering rate of nearly 6%. We lose them unfortunately to death, to an increase in the number of Service Exemptions and, to the now critical number of Suspensions for Non-Payment of Dues (NPD). Brethren, we can ill afford to maintain the volume of requests and services available by the Grand Lodge with this current rate of loss of revenue. In the past two years the Grand Lodge of Missouri has lost over 3,000 Dues Paying Members which equates to a loss of operational revenue of nearly $40,000. I realize that if the Grand Lodge has lost revenue, this means the Lodges have lost revenue. The Grand Lodge comes from the membership of the Masonic Lodges in Missouri so we are all in the same boat and when it comes to revenue and Brethren, ours, is “taking water”. The question that we must ask ourselves is, How do we remedy this problem? I have mentioned several times during this past year that the Strategic Goal of the Grand Lodge Office is to reduce expenses, work more efficiently and be more fiscally responsible with the funds entrusted to us, all the while maintaining or increasing the service to our most valuable resource, our membership. The Grand Master, Grand Lodge Officers and the Office Staff have all pulled together and rolled up our sleeves to try to find solutions to the challenges we all face. We have instituted many new procedures in the office and in travel across the state to numerous events to ensure we are being responsible, but we have not quit looking and we will continue to seek better ways of doing things. The facts are however, that we all have to do something regarding this issue and therefore I’m asking for any ideas that any of you may have. Our Fraternity has a lot to offer and is extremely valuable. I also know everyone wants it to succeed and indeed it will succeed, by working together on this issue that is common to us all. Last year I asked the Lodge Secretaries to recognize some measures we set in order to ensure our operations are organized, streamlined and efficient. I’m asking again that we double our efforts to see these tasks accomplished because they are critical in our communication strategy and critical to the efforts of the Grand Lodge and our Charities to provide services to our membership. The tasks that we need everyone on board with are: 1. Online Membership Portal (Database) usage by the Lodge Secretary or Lodge Authorized Administrative Assistant is the primary method of tracking membership.


160

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2. Online Membership Portal (Database) is the location of the Draft and Final Annual Returns each year. 3. Making sure that all necessary updates to your membership records conducted before June 30th each year. 4. Lodge Mailing Address and Lodge Email Address must be kept up to date. (These can be the Lodge Secretary’s personal addresses but they need to be updated in the LODGE INFORMATION Page.) 5. Installed Officers are updated on the Lodge Dashboard within 10 days of Installation 6. Masonic Home Representative is kept up to date in the LODGE OFFICERS page 7. Lodge Education Officer is kept up to date in the LODGE OFFICERS page 8. Spouse Information is collected and recorded since we need to be able to contact and provide assistance to our Widows when a member passes away. 9. Veteran Information is collected as we have programs available for them. 10. Submission of Lodge 990s, N, EZ or Full Form must be a priority to prevent loss of tax-exempt status by the IRS.

AREA MEETINGS This year, I increased the number of Grand Secretary’s Area Meetings to 11 locations across the state. I looked at the locations that we have held them at for many years and filled a couple “holes” that I thought would allow us to reach more secretaries to benefit the Lodges in those areas. While that effort was rather successful, we still had over 100 Lodges not represented at the meetings and thus possibly missed out on some valuable information. Expanding on last year’s success we opted to provide training on the Online Membership Portal to showcase new functionality while going over the basic functions that did not change. It will be my intention to add more of these Areas Meetings to extend the reach in 2018, plus offer online Webinars that will allow Secretaries the benefit of receiving interactive training from their homes. I would like to thank all the Brethren from the Lodges that have assisted our office in this transition and would personally like to thank The Grand Lodge Officers for their support, encouragement and assistance related to this operation. It is our Grand Lodge and its success is everyone’s success.

PRELIMINARY REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON JURISPRUDENCE th 196 ANNUAL COMMUNICATION To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren: Your Committee on Jurisprudence is charged with various duties, including the review of proposals to amend the Constitution and By-Laws, review of Decisions and Edicts issued by the Grand Master, and the referral of legal questions by the Grand Master or Grand Lodge. As of the submission of this preliminary report, your Committee has met twice in person and engaged in numerous email exchanges and conference calls in carrying out these duties. The Committee also expects to meet and discuss as necessary in the days and weeks leading up to and during this Communication, including the formal meeting on Sunday, September 24. The Committee has reviewed all proposals submitted by the close of the 195th Annual Communication to add, amend, or repeal provisions of the Constitution and ByLaws. This was an especially busy year, as fourteen proposed by-law amendments and one constitutional amendment were timely received. Each proposal was initially reviewed by the Committee in November to determine if it was or could be brought into due form under the Constitution and By-Laws. With two exceptions, the Committee was able to work with the sponsors to bring these proposals into due form. The final versions that were distributed to the lodges earlier this year and are included in your registration packet have been found to be in due form and will be considered at this Annual Communication. An opinion as to advisability will be given as part of the final report. The Committee also received a proposal for “emergency legislation” under Section 35.021 of the By-Laws. Pursuant to that Section, that proposal was likewise reviewed by the Committee and referred to the Grand Master. When reviewing a proposal for form, the Committee must consider provisions of the Constitution and By-Laws not affected by the proposal, state and federal law, including the Internal Revenue Code, and the Ancient Landmarks, usages, and established customs of Masonry. This includes consideration of the overall structure of “Regular Freemasonry,” that is, the criteria that bring a Grand Lodge into conformity with other Grand Lodges to secure and maintain recognition. While by no means absolutely binding, the Conference of Grand Masters of Masons in North America, to which this Grand Lodge belongs, considers these factors to include legitimacy of origin, exclusive territorial jurisdiction, except by mutual consent and/ or treaty, and adherence to the Ancient Landmarks – specifically, a Belief in God, the Volume of the Sacred Law as an indispensable part of the furniture of a Lodge and the prohibition of the discussion of politics and religion. The Committee must also consider the ascertainable immediate impact of the proposal if passed, particularly


188

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

if it appears that impact will be financially detrimental to the Grand Lodge or its constituent lodges. Under these guidelines, two submitted proposals related to dues exemptions have been ruled not in due form and will not be considered. One of these proposals would have expanded the dues exemption for fifty-year members to all lodges of membership. The other proposal would have expanded the dues exemption for all brethren in active military. These proposals were forwarded to the Committee on Ways and Means for an opinion on the financial impact of these proposals upon the Grand Lodge and its constituent lodges. While both Committees appreciate the service and sacrifice of each of these groups, the Committee on Ways and Means reported that these proposals would have an immediate detrimental impact on the Grand Lodge in the loss of per capita and on at least one constituent lodge in the loss of a substantial portion of dues income. Therefore, the Jurisprudence Committee was forced to determine these proposals were not in due form. The proposal for emergency legislation would have eliminated the residency requirement for residents residing within fifty miles of the Missouri border. After review by the Committee and referral to the Grand Master, this proposal will not be considered. As this Committee reported last year, a review of the List of Lodges, Masonic reveals that every regular Masonic Grand Lodge imposes on a petitioner the requirement of fixed residency within its territorial jurisdiction. To eliminate this requirement would put Missouri alone in that respect. Additionally, eliminating the residency requirement would have infringed upon the territorial sovereignty of our sister Grand Lodges without the consent of those Grand Lodges. To do so would invite questions regarding the recognition of our Grand Lodge among other Grand Lodges. As with the proposal submitted last year, we do not criticize the sponsors of this proposal. We understand there are concerns among members of this Grand Lodge regarding the actions of other Grand Lodges towards their members, and we hope those concerns are resolved through the internal operations of those Grand Lodges. It is, however, a dispute into which the Grand Lodge of Missouri cannot and should not enter, and the Committee feels that to do so could potentially jeopardize the worldwide recognition and respect the Grand Lodge of Missouri has enjoyed since 1821. Your Committee also exchanged numerous e-mails and conference calls throughout the year as we provided advice to the Grand Master and Grand Secretary. Some of these conferences resulted in formal decisions and policies being issued, while, in others, the Committee recommended no action be taken. Your Committee thanks you for your confidence this year, and this report will be supplemented at the Annual Communication with the presentation of legislation for consideration and a report on the Decisions, Edicts, Consents, and Permissions

REPORT OF THE INSURANCE COMMITTEE To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, Thru the hard work of RWB Michael Apple, RWB Webb Edwards, and RWB Dave Ingersoll and with the assistance of the Grand Lodge Comptroller, Mrs. Bess Seibuhr, and the Grand Secretary, RWB Jeffrey Pennington, your committee was able to focus a bidding the renewal of our package of insurance coverages. Our Agent, Ron Burlison did an excellent job of surveying the market for the coverages we need and was able to renew our coverages with Cincinnati Insurance Company at a substantial savings.  This package includes the coverage for the Subordinate Lodges and I am pleased to report that the cost per member dropped from $2.00 to $1.49.  We still have other work to do including our Worker’s Compensation coverage, Directors and Officers, and the Grand Lodge Health Plan. The Committee also suggested that it might be a good idea for this committee to review coverage of the Masonic Home as the two are so closely linked together. As Chairman, I appreciate the input of all involved and I hope we can improve coverages and premiums on our other policies. In the Faith, RWB Dave Ingersoll, Chairman

REPORT OF THE MASONIC CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren: The Missouri Masonic Children’s Foundation is a not-for-profit 501c(3)-qualified subsidiary of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, which is governed by a four-member board of directors who serve by virtue of their appointment as Grand Lodge Advancing Line Officers. The sitting Junior Grand Deacon serves as president of the board, and I have been honored to serve in that capacity during the 20162017 Grand Lodge year. The following is a report of the events of the past year reflecting the Foundation’s accomplishments and recommendations. “If our efforts assist in the identification and recovery of one child, then MoCHIP will be a success”, said RWB Nick Cichielo, MoCHIP State Coordinator 20062016. These were the words and the sentiment that were brought forward from the beginning of our program, and, through the efforts of our volunteers, MoCHIP has been a success to date for ten children and their families. The growth, stability, and success of MoCHIP has been through the dedication and efforts of our volunteers. It would be but a cliché to simply mention that countless hours of work have been put in by everyone connected with MoCHIP, because we know that 119,981 total volunteer hours of service have been dedicated to support our children in their communities. The hours dedicated to this program have supported program totals of the identification of 236,260 children, with 30,162 volunteers, at 1,486 events. The year of 2016-2017 gave us identification of 4,361 children, with 1,570 volunteers, at 71 events, with 4,681 volunteer hours. The 2016-2017 average number of identifications per event was 61, and there were 96 lodges that participated. Numbers, such as volunteer hours, give us the ability to quantify our past actions. But the added value to our numbers exists in their use in guiding our future direction. Over the last several years, the Board of the Masonic Children’s Foundation has reviewed the numbers and trends from our MoCHIP events, and we have combined this information with comments and observations from the volunteers. This has allowed us to identify and report to you several key areas upon which we have acted, or are taking action; and areas that are being recommended for future development. MoCHIP as a Brand


192

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

Make no mistake that MoCHIP is a brand of value to us as a Fraternity. It identifies much of what the public first perceives of Missouri Freemasonry, and, through our volunteers, this program is figuratively and literally the face of Missouri Freemasonry to the general public. Every successful brand reaches a point of maturity whereby its future success needs additional or redirected efforts, and MoCHIP shares this trait of maturity with the best and most successful of mature brands. Marketing a) We have witnessed a pattern in the most successful of MoCHIP events occurring in venues with a co-activity such as a children’s expo or a school event. We have numerous stand-alone events that continue to be strong and should be maintained, and we should look to augment our schedule with more events with a co-activity. b) Over the last 10 years, many of our contacts in police and fire departments, and schools and communities are no longer active. Their new counterparts are not as aware of the MoCHIP Program and the benefits to the children and families in their communities. Renewing these contacts and encouraging our newest members in utilizing their contacts would be of great benefit to our program. c) The formal presentation of the MoCHIP program to the newest members of our Fraternity is vital as they are the ones who will propel this program forward as it evolves. There is a lapse of institutional memory that can develop without reinforcement of this program, and further knowledge might help participation of Lodge members and their Lodges. d) We need to look at the areas (events) at which we have been successful and carry the message of renewal of a child’s identification information. There is a trending belief that there is no need to update a child’s information when, in fact, this information is dynamic in growing children. The changes in children are amazing and their information should be renewed on an annual basis for many of our age groups. Public Perception The public perception of MoCHIP has included a small group that has pushed back at the “chip” designation. As overtly ridiculous as any of these assertions might be with MoCHIP, it has become apparent that the discussion of “chips” beyond MoCHIP has recently entered the public arena. We also believe that those discussing this topic regarding MoCHIP itself, represent a smaller percentage than those who are hearing this topic but are keeping quiet and staying away from events. Even with these “chip” discussions, it is apparent that MoCHIP is a highly visible brand with strong name recognition and an excellent reputation. To address this issue, we feel that a more prominent display of the meaning of the acronym of MoCHIP would help to provide the basis of an explanation of what we are providing to the community. By redefining the meaning and explanation of MoCHIP, we also have the opportunity to provide information to those with silent


2017

GRAND LODGE OF MISSOURI

193

questions who might not have ever participated in our program. Morale a) There has been some internal discord beyond the Board about the name of MoCHIP without much discussion surrounding the issues of Brand and Marketing. Setting discussion aside about the commitment to MoCHIP as our program name will allow us to better focus our efforts on marketing. b) The equipment in the field has been a determent to some of our events. It is hard to have enthusiasm for this week’s event when two years of planning for last week’s event ended abruptly because the equipment failed. The Board has addressed this issue with the purchase of new finger print scanners and the leasing of new computers for all of the teams. There was a lengthy delay in providing this equipment due to variances in configurations and assuring that we would be compliant with the new Amber Alert protocols. c) In making the decisions regarding equipment updates, we have kept the number of Teams at 7. Though the numbers of events have trended downward these last few years, reducing the number of Teams would place additional stress on the remaining teams in terms of distances to events, familiarity with an area, and the time available to support the extra territory. d) Issues surrounding Achievement Award points have been well heard and forcibly recommended and may be partially related to 71 events this year vs. 81 events the previous year. Suffice it to say that the issues around the Achievement Award are being reviewed. Funding and Finances The services provided by MoCHIP continue to be offered at no charge to the participants and their families. This is in no small part due to the volunteers that spend their weekends and other hours supporting this program and from the contributions made by Missouri Masons through the Grand Lodge. In addition, many of these individuals and their Lodges have donated additional funds to the Masonic Children’s Foundation. The support of other organizations that share our interests is gratefully acknowledged and most appreciated. These organization include the Order of the Eastern Star, the International Order of Odd Fellows, and the M.W. Prince Hall Grand Lodge of the State of Missouri and its Jurisdictions. The strength of the generous funding provided to the Masonic Children’s Foundation, and the decisions made in the procurement of new equipment, has allowed us to continue to be financially sound and operationally viable. This financial condition is reflected in the financial statements provided with this report. Support The Board of Directors has invited Nick and Lori Cichielo to attend the 2017 Communication of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, to confer with the Board and the


194

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

Teams. Their experience and counsel have been invaluable to all of us in MoChip and they have continued to serve the Children’s Foundation from Florida. Having them here in Missouri can only be a benefit for all of us. Concluding Statement Serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the Missouri Masonic Children’s Foundation over these previous four years has been extraordinary. Traveling the State of Missouri and working with the Teams, the Coordinators, and the volunteers has been an honor and a privilege. It is amazing to witness much of what we know in theory about how to be better Master Masons in our communities, actually being put in operation every weekend throughout this State. I have full confidence that the Foundation is in good hands with the support of the Brethren and the remarkable Board Members who will continue to serve. Respectfully and fraternally submitted, Dr. Ty G. Treutelaar, President Richard W. Kaeser, Vice President Charles F. Wiegert, Treasurer Kevin M. Fuller, Secretary

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON MASONIC EDUCATION To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic Education for the year of 2016-2017 did not hold a formal meeting. The Committee strove to support the Grand Master this year by reviewing and fine-tuning the materials that are being reintroduced to the Grand Lodge website through the Learning About Masonry Program (LAMP). To support the website teaching and testing modules for the three degrees, we added new lessons for Lodge Officers that were developed directly from the duties assigned by Grand Lodge By-Laws, duties assigned through the Ceremony of Installation and with some consideration for the traditional roles played by these offices. Two members of the Masonic Education Committee attended the three-day Midwest Conference on Masonic Education held in Topeka, Kansas during the month of August. This was a combined conference with the Midwest Conference of Masonic Grand Lodges. The Masonic Education Committee uses the information gathered at this conference to continue searching for new approaches and materials to support Missouri Lodges in providing solid information to instruct the members of the Craft. The Masonic Achievement Award Program continued improving their submission and approval program this year by providing lodges the option of using digital forms with automated functions to add all the points for which a lodge is qualified and then acknowledge when the minimum requirements are met. RWB Clifford Dobbins Chaired this sub-committee of the Masonic Education Committee and the Craft has been well-served by the tireless work they provide with gathering and affirming all qualified Lodges in time for the Annual Communication Award Banquet. Recognition should be given to all the members of the Committee: Clifford Dobbins, James Ditter, Jeffrey Henty, George Shelley and Larry Dreppard. Thank you, Brethren. We continue to look to the future with a commitment to providing educational material that is relevant to the Brethren of the State, and that will continue to develop a cohesive bond among the Missouri Craft. We look forward to the prospect of providing more development of materials for on-line education. We hereby submit this report and pray that all efforts to assist the Craft in their search for Greater Light will be empowered by the Almighty and His Blessings upon Masonry. Respectfully Submitted, David B. Brown – Chair Byron DeLear Mitchell Penn Robert Efken Bobbie White Sam Land

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON MASONIC YOUTH To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, The 2017 Masonic Youth Committee assisted the Grand Master in his selection of the recipients of the Grand Master’s Youth Award. In March, forms were mailed to all Chapter Dads of DeMolay, Guardians of Job’s Daughters and Mother Advisors of International Order Rainbow for Girls for their award nominations. As difficult as it was, the list of excellent candidates were evaluated and the awards were given as follows: Jennifer Wayland from St. Louis Assembly #3 was selected for Rainbow, Bradley Pitman from Crestwood and Allegiance Chapters for DeMolay, and Lydia Penzel from Jackson Bethel #60 for Job’s Daughters. Congratulations to them all. Their accomplishments and credentials show they are indeed fine young men and women dedicated to their Masonic Youth Organizations and communities. The Masonic Youth Day Planning Committee consisting of the appointed Grand Lodge committee, 4 representatives of each Youth organization and a few other Adult Youth Advisors met twice, (March and May) to plan and organize the MYD Event held on Saturday, August 5th. Planning followed our usual Masonic Youth Family picnic guidelines, and was held at the Masonic Center in Columbia. 201 Masonic Youth plus many adult advisors attended. This was slightly down from last year due to many Job’s youth attending their Supreme Session. There were many activities for the youth to enjoy. New this year, was slip and slide kickball where the kids had to “slide the bases” on tarps to make it home! They also played in the water gun sport corral, and participated in the ever popular allyouth silly string fight, wherein 196 or so young people ran around out in the field covering each other in silly string! Also, even though with the cooler temperatures, the dunking booth was very busy indeed dunking the leaders of the Masonic Youth Groups! First responders came out for half the day. The Columbia Fire Department shared a ladder truck and a Police Patrol car to visit and amaze the youth while answering questions and showing off their equipment. They even left for a call and then came back to complete their stay! Hats off to Columbia’s First Responders! Hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, snow cones, funnel cakes, was the fare of the day. The food was served on “MYD 2017” upside down Frisbees that all could take home, along with similarly imprinted water bottles. Also, the youth received a teal colored MYD T-shirt, complete with logo of Square and Compass centered in the outline of the state of Missouri along with a pair of sunglasses marked MYD 2017 appropriately. Other areas worthy of note, for the day, Brother Chris Duncan having a fully staffed and equipped medical tent on site, and Brother Brad Fowler hosting an informational table for MOCHIP. Attendance prizes were given out for

each of the youth groups including their junior counterparts (Squires, Jobee2Bee, and Rainbow Pledges). Prizes were in the form of gift cards, 3 computer tablets and one paid attendance to each organization’s Grand Annual Session. There was also prizes drawn for a scavenger hunt and a “guess the pieces in the candy jar”. The committee would like to thank the members of the Masonic Youth groups and their advisors who helped us over the past year. Two notes of mention, and very special “Thanks” goes to my committee member, Brother Larry Cameron, who, for the THIRD year in a row was instrumental in getting all of the donations for the attendance prizes from the 18th District and across the State of Missouri - $1800 ! And to the donor of the 3 tablets who wishes to be anonymous. Our Masonic Youth are truly exceptional young people and are worthy of all the support we can give them. They are Our Masonic Future.

REPORT OF THE PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE 196th ANNUAL COMMUNICATION To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, The Public Relations Committee met throughout the year via email and teleconference. Dividing into groups we were able to accomplish a number of projects. We continue to monitor the Facebook page and website. A special thank you goes out to Randy Davis for his continued support and administration of Facebook. We also thank CT Harrison for his contribution and efforts in keeping the website up to date under direction from the Grand Secretary. One of our accomplishments this year included updating the Fabulous Four brochure. We revised the design and, with the assistance of the four charities, updated the content to better reflect the success of our Fabulous Four. We hope the Craft continues to utilize this brochure as it will be an excellent tool for introducing our Fraternity’s charitable efforts to both potential candidates and the general public. We also contributed to the design of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial Display. Each month the Memorial Association features a Grand Lodge Jurisdiction. The Grand Lodge of Missouri was featured during June 2017. Our contribution to the project included a display board that celebrated and honored Missouri Freemasonry and the great efforts our brethren are doing here in the State. Combined with a number of items provided by the Grand Secretary, the display was a success and is certain to have left an impression on those visiting the Memorial. We are also working with the Grand Secretary in developing a catalog that provides more than just a simple list of items available for purchase through the Grand Lodge. The catalog which will include pins, coins and other Masonic items available to the membership is expected to be available in the near future. It will include descriptions and pictorial references to give the brethren a better reference when ordering supplies. The Committee extends our sincere thanks to the Grand Master and the Craft for giving us the opportunity to serve.

Those standards are summarized as follows: • • •

CONCLUSION Brethren, through your Committee, the Grand Lodge has tried to support new and growing Grand Lodges by providing by providing recognition when consistent with the findings of the Commission, that they have met the standards for recognition. By so doing, we believe that we are aiding the growth of regular Freemasonry and strengthening those newer Grand Lodges in their relationships with the world of regular Freemasons. The continued efforts by irregular and/or clandestine Grand Lodges and Appendant or “Honor” Bodies to infiltrate our Masonry cannot be discounted. We have tried over the last number of years to sound a warning of this continuing concern. The need for Lodges to have and use a copy of the List of Lodges Masonic for review is more important than ever. Your committee submits this report and recommends it’s adoption.

REPORT OF THE SCHOLARSHIP SELECTION COMMITTEE To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The Masonic Scholarship Selection Committee assists the Masonic Scholarship Foundation and the Samuel Smith Stewart Fund Administration in selecting recipients for the current year for each of their respective scholarships. The committee this year consisted of RWB Stanton T. Brown II, Chairman; RWB Barry Cundiff; WB Brian Maenner; RWB Lloyd Lyon; RWB Keith Neese; RWB Steve Duncan; RWB Emmett Bryson; and RWB Thomas Truman and with the assistance of Mrs. Chrissy Gessling. The committee met on Saturday, April 8th at the Masonic Complex in Columbia and completed the arduous task of selecting this year’s scholarship selections. I say completed the task, because the process started last fall when the notices and new scholarship applications were sent to the lodges. I was extremely pleased with the overall response we received this year. It reflects the seriousness with which our constituent lodges support this charity. By the time the March 31, 2017 deadline approached, we had received more than 500 applications. Unfortunately, we still were receiving applications postmarked after the deadline so we were not able to


216

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

consider them this year. In reviewing the resources available to fund the scholarship’s this year, it was determined that we could renew all previously awarded scholarships in all categories who were still eligible, however we were unable to award any new Masonic Merit Scholarships this year. We could award 2 new Ruth Lutes Bachman scholarships. After long discussions during the Samuel Smith Steward scholarship committee meeting, it was decided that we would award only 6 new Samuel Smith Steward scholarships but increase the amount to $12,000.00 per academic year beginning this upcoming academic year. Our continual improvement of the selection process has enabled us to be more efficient and utilize our time better during the day long session. For those of you who may not have thought about it, all the staff people who had worked on the scholarship program in previous years were no longer at the Grand Lodge. That meant that there was a huge gap in the institutional knowledge for processing, handling, recording and sorting the hundreds of applications received. The applications were scored in several categories including scholastic achievement, financial need, essay, extracurricular and community involvement. There were many outstanding applications reviewed and after careful consideration the following scholarships were awarded. Those receiving new Samuel Smith Stewart scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year are: Riley Girardier from St. Clair High School. Desyrae Wadlow from Central High School in Park Hills. Jeb Schaefer from Macon R-1 High School. Caitlin Ung from Fort Zumalt High School. Hanna Scott from Odessa High School. Faith Baker from Francis Howell High School. The recipients of the Ruth Lutes Bachmann scholarships for the 2017-2018 academic year are: Lexi Barnes from LaPlata. Erin M Richards from Hale High School. Previous scholarship recipients which are eligible for renewal are: Masonic Merit Scholarships renewals Kendra Cook Sara Cunningham Payton Dahmer Evelyn Gonzales Megan Hanley Ashley Howery Jennie Huynh

Especially office staff member Chrissy Gessling. She spent many long hours logging in each application received, sorting and organizing the applications, insuring that all required documents were included, corresponding with schools, applicants, and lodge secretaries and only by her efforts was it possible for the committee members to start work the minute we arrived at the complex. Once the selections were made, she was responsible for getting out the notice of awards, communicating with High Schools to determine when the various awards ceremonies were to be held so the scholarships could be presented. I would like to personally thank each of the presenters who took the time to travel and be available to represent the Grand Lodge in fulfilling its obligation to one of its important charities, that of supporting the idea of a well-educated citizenry. As part of our ongoing process of improvement, the process has been documented and as each subsequent committee performs its duties, the process can be standardized and efficiencies improved. Fraternally submitted, Stanton T. Brown II Chairman Junior Grand Warden

REPORT OF THE SAMUEL SMITH STEWART TRUST COMMITTEE To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, It is with particular pride that the report of the Samuel Smith Stewart Trust Committee is transmitted to you today. This committee’s charge is both direct and serious. It is direct in that it is charged in our law to supervise the corpus, the interest earned on same, and, most important of all, set the number and amount of Samuel Smith Stewart Scholars for the upcoming school year.   The committee has done so in accordance with the rules. At its initial meeting early in the Grand Lodge year (also as delineated) the Committee elected its officers & set its face to face meeting where its main work, scholarship selection, was accomplished.  The committee was fortunate to have invited MWB Vern H. Schneider, PGM present to address the assembled members.  This was more than propitious, it was fortuitous because not only did Brother Schneider know Samuel Stewart, he wrote the trust agreement covering the generous donation of Dr. Stewart.  The committee was treated to an incredible précis of the history of, not only the trust, but a look inside the heart, mind and life of Dr. Samuel Smith Stewart and his family.  This mind gripping presentation sent the committee searching for ways to spread the word about this incredible man and his equally incredible largesse for talented, scholastically able and involved students who would APPLY for this scholarship grant or any amount set by the receiving institution which, by policy, is sent directly to that institution of the student’s choice by the Trust.   The committee first determined the number and amount of new scholars.  It was agreed to start six new students at $12,000 per year for up to four years each.  This amount was set such that IT would attract the best and was unanimously agreed upon by those present.  Additionally it was agreed to return to an earlier committee practice of a luncheon in honor of the scholars.  The date ultimately arrived at was July 22, 2017 at the Masonic Complex in Columbia.   The luncheon was an unqualified success with all selectees present.  A commemorative medallion struck especially for the occasion was presented by MWB Richard L. Smith, our current Grand Master to each student.  It will be on the fourth Saturday in July on each successive year. As a result, the committee has set in motion a process which will both honor its mission and the life & memory of Dr. Stewart.  This is a goal worth honoring.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON WAYS AND MEANS 196th ANNUAL COMMUNICATION To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, The Committee on Ways and Means met throughout the year continuing to identify ways to maximize the efficiency of the Grand Lodge operations. This would not have been possible without the persistent and diligent efforts of the Grand Master, Grand Secretary, Grand Treasurer and office staff. Most of the long-term, previously committed high cost equipment leases expired over the past 12 months, permitting the Grand Secretaries office to minimize expenses. We do however continue to battle rising costs in doing business, making it difficult to further reduce expenses without significantly impairing the services provided to members. A more substantial challenge is the consistent reduction in revenue as the number of dues paying members continues to decline. Not only are we effected by a reduction from deaths, suspensions, and remits, but as our membership matures we also experience an increase in non-dues paying members as we continue to see a shift into the 50 Year member class. Trends over the past five years show a 26% decline in per capita revenue. By the end of the 2017-2018 year the cumulative decline is estimated to reach 34% which has been reflected in the budget. It will be necessary to increase revenue as this trend is expected to continue. The Committee continues to maintain an effective system of monitoring and


230

adjusting the budget as necessary. Adjustments to the budget were made according to the Bylaws and remain consistent with overall strategic objectives. These are reflected in the budget for 2016-2017. In compliance with the Bylaws we have reviewed the financial statement audit and the accompanying auditor recommendations for the year ending October 31, 2016. Through the efforts of the Grand Lodge Officers, and especially the Grand Secretary and his staff, we continue to improve our system of internal controls. The audit firm commended the Grand Secretary and his staff for continuing to make improvements. Although a few deficiencies were identified in the audit, they appear to be a direct result of staff turnover during the 2015- 2016 fiscal year. These deficiencies have subsequently been addressed. Over the past few years this Committee, in conjunction with the Grand Lodge Officers, has built a strong foundation by improving internal controls and strengthening fiscal responsibility. We have also developed a budgeting process that promotes responsible spending. Although we have been able to produce a balanced budget, the ability to do so will become more difficult as revenue continues to weaken and costs continue to rise. As we move into the 2017-2018 fiscal year it will be necessary to improve revenue streams in order to preserve the long-term financial strength of the Grand Lodge. The Committee extends our sincere thanks to the Grand Master and the Craft for giving us the opportunity to serve. Fraternally submitted, Emmett J. Bryson, Chairman Steven D. Duncan Christopher B. Jones Taz A. Meyer H. Keith Neese James D. Schepers Daniel J. Ward

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The Grand Lodge Special Committee on Achievement Award for the year of 2016-2017 continued the previous work completed by this committee. The mission continues to review, recommend and make changes to the Application for Masonic Achievement Award. The goals of the committee this year remained aligned with the goals from previous years. First, support the streamlined application process while listening to feedback provided by lodges around the state. Second, continue the engagement of the District Deputy Grand Masters (DDGM) in the submission and approval process. A great deal of time was spent analyzing the feedback provided last year by the DDGM’s and changes were applied to meet the needs and desires of the Brethren while maintaining the vision of the program. Though no formal committee meeting was held, we relied on electronic communication to review and coordinate recommendations. The program continued to provide two award levels. We continue to collect all feedback and it will be assessed by the next committee for continued improvement. The year did not result in a large number of changes to the program or submission process. In lieu of making major changes, we focused more heavily on providing a period of consistency and stability for the Brethren. Success this year has been built around providing that stability. Respectfully Submitted, Clifford Dobbins – Chairman George Shelley Jeffrey Henty Larry Dreppard James Ditter

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON DIRECTED DEVELOPMENT To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Brethren, The committee on Directed Development met via teleconference and email updates on November 19, 2016, January 21, 2017, March 26, 2017, May 10, 2017 and June 29, 2017, during the past year and submits the following report. The Directed Development committee was formed to look for ways to improve some areas of the Grand Lodge Office in the Masonic Complex in Columbia. One of the objectives of the DDC was to explore the idea renovating the Grand Lodge Office space, adding some dignity to the Conference room and Grand Masters office and making them more accessible and useful. This project could take several years to accomplish as funding for this project would come mainly from donations. In early March we were informed that the New Masonic Temple on Lindell in St. Louis was in the process of being sold. A bronze statue of George Washington by renowned sculpture Victor S. Holm, that was dedicated on February 12, 1932, which is the property of the Grand Lodge of Missouri, would need to be moved from that facility to the new location of the Grand Lodge of Missouri in the Masonic Complex in Columbia. The task of moving this statue was assigned to the Directed Development committee. A formal request for permission to have the George Washington statue displayed in the foyer of the Masonic Complex was made to the Administration Committee of the Masonic Home of Missouri. The MHM directors voted to give us approval to proceed as long as the weight of the project can be handled in the space. The Directed Development committee with the assistance of MHM had a structural engineer inspect the area where the statue would reside and confirm it could handle the weight. A decision was made to construct a new base for the statue that would blend in with the lobby. After meeting with various moving companies, one was selected and the statue was moved on May 19, 2017. The Directed Development committee secured a donation that covered the cost of the moving.

The plan is to have the statue in place in the lobby of the Masonic Complex by September 24th, 2017 so it can be dedicated during an open house. Fraternally Submitted, Charles F. Wiegert, Chairman Emmett J. Bryson H. Keith Neese Terry A Yarbrough Tha L. Kribbs

REPORT OF THE MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, Our committee had all of our conference calls lasting well over an hour each. Many ideas were shared and discussed. A few ideas were suggested by the Grand Master. Unfortunately, while there was lively discussion, the Membership committee has failed to find or operationalize any new programs and thus we stand where we were at the beginning of the year. We disused some results from last year’s National Survey. Some interesting examples from the Survey were talked about. These included: Marital status - 72.8 % MARRIED, 13.7 % SINGLE Do you have children Veterans -

75% NO,

69.5% YES,

30.5% NO

25% YES

In a Masonic youth group

91% NO,

9% YES

How often does your lodge have Masonic education? 17% A LOT, 16% SOME, 25% BARELY, 13% NEVER Many more questions and answers are available for future discussion.


278

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

The survey results generated discussion on active and non-active Masons. With the active Masons, we talked about ways to keep them engaged. The nonactive Masons sparked some good ideas on reengagement. For the active Masons, we talked about faster business meetings and mandatory education. The non-active Masons we thought could use a ride program, Masonic Birthday card, or Rusty nail degree done in every District every year. Two different age groups that were identified as present and future candidates were the baby boomers and Millennials. The Millennials generation is the same size as the baby boomers. By 2020 the Millennials will make up 50% of America’s work force. Most baby boomers were workaholics and now find themselves retired with extra time. The more data we retrieve on these two age groups could help in future recruitment. The last thing we worked on was the MERT program or Masonic Emergency Response Team. This information was given to us by the Grand Master. The MERT team would be a great way for lodges to engage new members. It would also be nice for the lodges to have a group to assist with disasters for members and the community. Unfortunately, we ran out of time working on this program and concluded that it needed its own committee to be a success. A strong recommendation of our committee would be to add the Membership committee as a regular committee in the bylaws. Also, we seemed to be all over the place with ideas. One or two ideas or goals in the beginning of the year and not brain storming all year long might help us be more successful in the future. Moving forward we believe this committee should solely focus on Recruitment and Retention in the future. Fraternally submitted, Christopher Tilley, Chairman Michael Bickel Ronald Hauser Jason Denman

REPORT OF THE MENTORING COMMITTEE To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, The Mentoring Committee met one time to get acquainted and discuss the work that has been accomplished and where we go from here. The first version of the Mentoring Manual has been published and is available from the Grand Lodge Office. Getting it into the hands of the lodges and having them

assign mentors to candidates and implement the program is the next step. The Committee is working to develop a program to assist local lodges to determine who is best suited to be a mentor and to train the mentors to implement the program. Fraternally submitted, Thomas E. Kuhn, Chairman Michael P. Brueckmann

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON TECHNOLOGY To the Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Missouri: Most Worshipful Grand Master and Brethren, The Grand Lodge Special Committee on Technology primarily met asynchronously during the year. For the year of 2016-2017 the committee continued the work previously completed. The mission remained to review, recommend and make changes to the technology in use by the Grand Lodge Office to support the fraternity. The goals of the committee this year were simplified to two primary items. First, stabilize the modernizations implemented between 2014 and 2016. Second, compile a new project listing for consideration in the second half of the Masonic year and out years. An examination was completed into the possibility of eliminating the on-site server used for local area storage and domain controller. The conclusion was made that current Azure Active Directory offerings would not completely replace all necessary functions of the local domain controller. For the time being, the current architecture must remain in place. Additional projects under further consideration include: • •

Deployment of a secure, shareable cloud storage vehicle for committee collaboration Replacement of the Mileage and Per Diem application

Project feasibility, acceptance and planning will be conducted in 2017-18. Fraternally submitted, Kevin Fuller, Chairman Jeff Bloemker Jason Goran

281

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT FOR CONSIDERATION IN 2018 Pursuant to Article V, Section 2 of the Grand Lodge Constitution, Right Worshipful Brother Jeffrey S. Pennington, Grand Secretary, read the following proposed Constitutional Amendment for consideration by the Constituent lodges: TO THE MOST WORSHIPFUL GRAND LODGE OF ANCIENT, FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI: PROPOSAL TO AMEND ARTICLE III, SECTION 1 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE GRAND LODGE OF ANCIENT, FREE AND ACCEPTED MASONS OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI. Section 1. NONE EXCEPT SUCH HAVE BEEN DULY ELECTED AND INSTALLED AS MASTERS OF LODGES AND ARE AT THE TIME OF THEIR ELECTION OR APPOINTMENT MEMBERS OF SOME LODGE, SHALL BE ELIGIBLE TO ANY OFFICE IN THE GRAND LODGE AND NO ONE SHALL BE ELIGIBLE TO THE OFFICE OF GRAND MASTER MORE THAN TWO YEARS AND ANY PERIOD OF 6 YEARS. NO ONE SHALL BE APPOINTED OR ELECTED TO THE ADVANCING LINE UNLESS SAID APPOINTEE SHALL HAVE DEMONSTRATED PRIOR TO HIS APPOINTMENT SUITABLE MASONIC PROFICIENCY IN THE THREE CRAFT DEGREES IN THE TRADITIONAL HISTORIC MANNER. IF THERE IS NO EVIDENCE IN THE GRAND LODGE RECORDS PRIOR TO THE APPOINTMENT THE GRAND LECTURER SHALL SEEK FROM THE BROTHERS LODGE, EVIDENCE SATISFACTORLY HAVING PASSED SUCH PROFICIENCY AND IF THE SAME CANNOT BE HAD, THE GRAND LECTURER SHALL CAUSE THE BROTHER TO BE IMMEDIATELY EXAMINED AND THEREAFTER CERTIFY IN WRITING THAT THE BROTHER HAS IN FACT BEEN FOUND SUITABLY PROFICIENT. OTHERWISE, HE SHALL BE IMMEDIATELY DISQUALIFIED FROM HOLDING ADVANCING LINE OFFICE. ANY ADVANCING LINE OFFICER CURRENTLY IN OFFICE, WHO HAS NOT PASSED SUITABLE PROFICIENCY IN THE THREE DEGREES IN A TRADITIONAL HISTORIC MANOR, AS OF THE TIME THAT THIS AMENDMENT IS ADOPTED, SHALL HAVE 90 DAYS THERE FROM TO DEMONSTRATE SUCH SUITABLE PROFICIENCY AND BE SO CERTIFIED BY THE GRAND LECTURER. OTHERWISE, SUCH ADVANCING LINE OFFICERS, SHALL IMMEDIATELY FOREFIT HIS OFFICE AND THE SAID OFFICE BE DEEMED AND DECLARED TO BE VACANT. A SUITABLE PROFICIENCY MEANS THE ABILITY TO SATISFACTORLY REPEAT THE OBLIGATION AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS RELATED TO THE SIGNS, GRIPS, PASSWORDS AND WORDS FROM THE THREE DEGREES. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: Whereas until recent years, all Appointees to the Advancing Line and those ultimately serving as Grand Master had prior to their


282

PROCEEDINGS OF THE

2017

appointment to the Advancing Line and prior to serving as Master of their Lodge demonstrated suitable Proficiency in the three Craft degrees in the traditional historic manner of Missouri Freemasonry and whereas, still today the vast majority of the existing Missouri Freemasons are required to memorize the historical Candidates lectures and stand for examination by their respective Lodges, in order to become Master Masons in good standing and whereas, the traditional historic Proficiency is no longer required to become a Master Mason in Missouri in good standing, the Craft should hold it’s Grand Lodge leadership to a higher standard of Masonic knowledge and should expect a higher level of Masonic commitment from it’s Grand Lodge Officer’s as representatives of Missouri Freemasonry, both within and outside our jurisdiction, and whereas general Masonic knowledge, the most basic of which is contained in the three degree Proficiency Lectures is fundamental to the basic understanding of Masonic teachings and philosophy without which, no one can legitimately presume to lead the Grand Lodge of Missouri.

RWB WALTER HUNT, GRAND HISTORIAN, GRAND LODGE OF MASSACHUSETTS Grand Master Smith called upon Right Worshipful Brother Walter Hunt, Grand Historian of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts to inform the Craft of what the position of Grand Historian is and what it brings to the Jurisdiction. Right Worshipful Brother Hunt stated; The purpose of having a Grand Historian is to collate and assemble materials to support historical research. We went on to say that he has started to build a Masonic genealogy website, which is also being implemented for Missouri. He said; “History is about people. If you want to tell a compelling historical story, what you want to do is; you want to talk about prominent Masons; you want to talk about who they are, what they did, where they went, what they accomplished and why we care about them”. He advocated telling the story of the Past Master’s of your Lodge to new Brethren and that someday they will be sharing your story. He concluded stating “History is a story about people and having a Historian for your Grand Lodge, means you get to tell the story of your people”. 28 of the 51 Jurisdictions in the United States have Grand Historians.

At the time of the preparation and printing of these Proceedings, these proposals have been reviewed as to form by the Grand Lodge Committee on Jurisprudence but should not be considered to be in final form as they may be subject to amendment or withdrawal prior to the 197th Annual Communication pending continued review and discussion with the proposals’ sponsors. These proposals have be distributed to the lodges and are available for review by the Craft by in the January Distribution Packet to the Lodges. This process is intended to provide as much time as possible for the Craft to review proposed legislation while at the same time avoiding, if possible, the necessity of a proposal being ruled out of order on the floor due to improper form.

PRESENTATIONS TO MOST WORSHIPFUL RONALD D. JONES GRAND MASTER 2017-2018 After being presented with the gavel of authority, Most Worshipful Brother Ronald D. Jones, personally thanked his installing officers commenting on how, in the last 20 years, he has sat in the audience and has seen some of the finest men he knows stand in the East blazing a path that has brought our Fraternity where it is today and he how is so grateful. Senior Grand Warden, Right Worshipful Brother Stanton T. Brown, II asked to approach the East bringing with him what he called a “Tattered Box” that has been around a few years. It contained a Top Hat worn by a common Masonic ancestor of theirs, Most Worshipful Brother Hugh McLaughlin when he was Grand Master in 1972. Afterward, the hat was placed in the care of his father Right Worshipful Brother Stanton T. Brown who was appointed Grand Lecturer by Most Worshipful Brother McLaughlin. In 2011 he presented the hat to Most Worshipful Brother Gail S. Turner to wear during his year and now he would be honored if the Grand Master would accept it to wear during his year as Grand Master. The Grand Master then asked Most Worshipful Brother Richard L. Smith to approach the East and presented him with his Past Grand Master Certificate denoting his term of Service to Missouri Freemasonry as Grand Master to Masons. The Grand Master stated it was his first official act as Grand Master in signing the certificate and he expressed deep admiration for Most Worshipful Smith who graciously received the certificate and in turn expressed his thanks for the beautiful document. Right Worshipful Brother Joe Strobbe of Rising Sun Lodge No. 13 then presented the Grand Master with a Gavel that was engraved with the Grand Master’s name on it, and presented him with a Shirt and Tie. The Grand Master’s Daughter Missy and Grand Daughter Trinity then approached the Grand East. Trinity brought “Pumpkin Bear” that the Grand Master promptly placed on the podium while he was presented his Grand Master’s Jewel. Right Worshipful Brother Corky Grigsby stated that he was approaching the Grand East, bringing with him The Grand Master’s lovely bride of 38 years, Susan, who he recognized as a source of tremendous support throughout his Masonic Career. She presented the Grand Master with his Grand Master’s Lapel Pin. The Grand Master then introduced Right Worshipful Brother Grigsby as a Missouri Master Mason of Swope Park Lodge No. 617 but who will be installed as Grand Master in the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma in November.
