Federal Lodge #5

Free and Accepted Masons Dover, N. H.

Welcome To Federal Lodge #5

The lodge attendance is growing with each meeting, Last month we
had 29 in attendance, this is a great turnout, and I am so proud of how
our two Lodges unified and has become a good strong Lodge. This
month Winnipesaukee Lodge in Alton will do a courtesy Fellowcraft
Degree for our Brother Casey Bova. Let’s have a great turn out for his
degree. Information is on the monthly calendar.

I have learned that Worshipful Brother Tony Indusi is in the hospital
with heart problems, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
As we approach the time of year that the Lodge is in darkness (no Stated
Meetings) I am planning events thru the summer, we will still have dine
around club, Square and Compass night with our Past Masters, Master
Classes, and we will hold a special in either July or August to do a
Fellowcraft Degree for our two other EA’s. I will continue to publish the
Trestle Board thru the summer.

Our June Stated will be a Special night. We will start the evening with
dinner at 6:00 pm, Lodge will open in full form Master Mason and we
will receive the Deputy Grand Master Right Worshipful David Collins,
and the Senior Grand Warden Right Worshipful Daniel Hotchkiss to
install Right Worshipful Michael Steward as Grand Chaplain. This will
be a great time to make a visit to your new Lodge and meet some of the
Grand lodge officers.

I would like again to thank the many brothers for their thoughts and
prayers during my recent family issues. We have now secured full time
help in taking care of my parents. This will now free me up to continue
to help grow Federal Lodge in a great and active Lodge in Dover.

Fraternally and Respectfully,
John T. Pond, Jr.
