Col. Clay Masonic Lodge #159 F&AM

Greetings Brothers,

September was a busy month. The officers of Colonel Clay put on an EA degree. We initiated three brothers, two from Colonel Clay and a courtesy candidate from Mayo Lodge. Colonel Clay's corps of officers did a splendid job. It was nice to see brothers on the sidelines.

Many thanks to Bro. Danny Coleman, P.M. for presenting the Bible lecture. In my opinion, the Bible lecture is one if not the most important lesson we can relay to a new brother. Thanks Bro. Danny. Many thanks again to all my officers for all of their hard worin preparation for this degree. 

I attended the District 18 Outdoor Degree. The food and fellowship were great. Seven new brothers were raised. You missed a great day.

If our new EAs are found proficient, we will have a Fellow Craft degree on the Wednesday following Grand Lodge. Tim Sanders has been a great Grand Master. One of the things he always says when he is speaking is "Be the man outside the lodge which you profess to be in the lodge."

I hope to see all of you in lodge soon!

By the Square, 

R.C. Cooper, P.M., Master
