San Leandro Lodge No. 113 Free & Accepted Masons 1857-2013 156th Year of Masonry

Reaching Out JUNE & JULY 2013 TRESTLE BOARD Meets every Wednesday San Leandro Masonic Hall 116 W. Joaquin Avenue San Leandro, CA 94577


Greetings Brethren, We had a great outdoor degree conferral last May 4th. That would be a first for our lodge. I myself was surprised that every detail went smoothly as planned except for the midday heat. The Outdoor Lodge, situated in the hills within the Masonic Homes property belongs to the Masons of California. Partnered with three other lodges, Crocker Lodge 212, Palo Alto/Roller Lodge 346 and Siminoff Daylight Lodge 850, we accomplish many things at once. Multi lodge fellowship, multi lodge degree conferral, Masonic Home visitation and tour, and also collected roughly $850 which we donated to the Homes. Having visited the outdoor conferral site, it is functional however still more work needs to be done such as landscaping and electricity. All the work is voluntary and provided by the residents of the homes. I promised them we would be providing additional manpower. That being, I would like a small group of volunteers who has trade skills and time to come with us to help our brethren in the Homes. We can do it. I would like to give thanks to those who have donated their used clothing, beddings, and children’s toys to our cause. We will continue this relief drives up to November for distribution to our community charity centers for the holiday season. There’s no harm in giving. This may be a small part for us but to those in need, this would mean so much. Congratulations to our brother who was raised to the Sublime Degree, Bro Ismael Quinonez and our new Entered Apprentices, Bro Michael Heramia and Bro Joseph Ferrer. Welcome to the fraternity. Happy Birthday to the June and July Celebrants! See you at the Stated Meeting Dinner. Our Annual Family Picnic is on the 22nd. See you there! Have a safe and fun 4th of July and have a memorable summer everyone! Fraternal Regards, Bro. Noel Ciron Master


Brethren, For the month of June, please allow me to give you the history of Hiram Award. It was launched in February of 1977 at Galt Lodge No. 267. That first year only one Hiram Award was presented. In 1978, forty were presented, in 1979, two hundred fifty, and by 1980, nearly all lodges participated in granting a Hiram Award. It was designed to the "unsung hero" of every lodge such as the volunteer who makes the coffee at each meeting, who sets the tables or arranges the furniture and ornaments in the lodge room, or any brother who donates their time and talents for the betterment of our fraternity and community. It is the highest honor which can be bestowed upon a brother that has given his timeless effort and energy, and the real warmth and pleasure of being chosen for this special honor is the most satisfying feeling. It comes directly from the brethren, who chose YOU to get this very honorable award. There are a few pointers to give this special award. This is a one time for a brother in the spotlight of fame and honor; it should be conducted in a most dignified manner. 1. No other awards or activities should be planned for the evening. 2. Under No Circumtances should there be more than one award given within a lodge, 3. The award should be restricted to no more than one per year, in this manner it becomes more prestigious. 4. No "secret" or private presentations‌ it deprives the recipient from inviting his friends and family. 5. Stage your program in the lodge room. Remember that the lodge is where the recipient took his first step as a Mason, and where he became a Master Mason. The Hiram Award is a way of honoring this brother who has given so freely of himself to the service of his lodge, and often without reward or recognition, and yet, when chosen to have this highest honor, the honored brother usually shed tears and humbly asked himself, " do I really deserve this honor "? A true brother who never ask for anything in return! Every Master Mason can get this honorable award, and YOU might be next. See you all on the 5th and let's hear what San Leandro Lodge has to say. Fraternally and Yours Truly, Bro. Allan Nubla Senior Warden

Brethren, Just a friendly reminder, we are fast approaching the due date for our Per Capita Tax Payment. I know that it is strictly voluntary for the Life Members to pay their individual $31.00 tax, but, just as a matter of information, as of this date two members have submitted their payment. For those of you that are keeping score, as of today 114 members have not paid their 2013 Dues! On another subject---if you move please don't forget to give me your new address. Thanks Gary White, Secretary
