"Temple Improvement Efforts"
Brethren: It is my intent as Worshipful Master to make as many capital improvements to the Temple as possible. These efforts can not be accomplished solely by draining the treasury. Fundraising will be required to accomplish these goals. The first such goal is to make cosmetic improvements to the bathrooms in the hall. As it currently stands these bathrooms are dated which diminishes from the renovations that have been done to the hall. Myself and the Trustees have not yet established a budget for this project; however, it is my intent to be ahead of the process by asking for contributions to the Building Maintenance Fund for the cosmetic improvements to the Temple Hall bathrooms. We will be tracking the fundraising efforts and contributors monthly in this Trestleboard. Thanks in advance for your support of this endeavor.

"18th Masonic District Blood Drive"
The first blood drive of the year is February 2nd, at Laurel Lodge, and the Blood Drive Committee wants you to come and donate! They are putting together incentives to get the Brethren out and can really use our support!
Your Lodge Blood Drive Representatives are Bro. Shawn Roberts and Bro. Pat Gismonde. Stay tuned for more information.
ENTERED APPRENTICE DEGREE
We are looking for “white apron” Brethren to assist in the exemplification of the Entered Apprentice Degree. If you are interested please contact our Secretary or the Worshipful Master.
The Degree will be April 19th starting at 7pm.
Dinner arrangements will be announced at a later date.
"Masonic Home Visitations"
Thanks go out to all the brethren and ladies who came out for the Masonic
Home visitations. Having two visitations within two weeks is a challenge but we stepped up to it! Great job!
Special thanks to our Ladies Group for organizing and distributing gift bags
to over 60 residents in the Home, including our own Merchantville Lodge family!
The residents were extremely grateful, and I can’t wait to see what the
Ladies have for to give out in March!
