February 2022 Trestle Board
On Thursday, February 3, 2022, we held our regular Business Meeting at our normal time.
As we do during all of our meetings, we discussed health and happiness, sickness and distressed, correspondence received, and read the name(s) for any petitions we received. The Meeting Minutes from January 2022 were read aloud, Secretary’s report was given, Old Business was discussed, New Business was introduced, and the Treasurer’s report was read.
If you will remember from the January Trestle Board, Lodge Security was again a topic of discussion and a motion to have the Lodge re-keyed was presented and passed. Shortly after the January Business Meeting, the Lodge was re-keyed by Irmo Lock Company, and a complete inventory of all keys and their custodians is now being kept by the Worshipful Master and Secretary.
Please note the dates for the Chicken BBQ Fundraisers:
The first BBQ will be Saturday, April 9th, 2022. Preparation day will be Friday, April 8th, 2022.
The second BBQ date HAS CHANGED. Please note the second BBQ will be moved to August 13th, 2022. Preparation day will be Friday, August 12th, 2022.
Junior Warden, Brother Rick Dillard, and the Lodge are appealing to the Brother’s of Boyleston Lodge to please make arrangements to come and help ensure these fundraising events are a success. If you are interested in performing a specific task or are just interested in offering general assistance, please communicate your intensions with Rick Dillard at firstname.lastname@example.org or (256) 223-0798.
New business introduced focused on a few maintenance items around the Lodge. The first item presented centered around the Cook Shed and the installation of window coverings to help keep the interior of the building better protected from the elements and seasonal changes. The second item presented discussed the removal and replacement of the white wooden fence which parallels the railroad tracks and helps delineate our parking lot. Both items were tabled until the Building Committee could be contacted and proper presentation of a scope of work and associated costs could be determined.
Boyleston Lodge is happy to announce that a motion to name Brother Rawl Schreiber an honorary member of Boyleston Lodge No. 123 passed unanimously.
Adopt-A-Highway Litter Pick Up will be held on Saturday, February 12th, 2022. Breakfast will be served at 0700 (7:00 AM). Litter pick up will begin at 0730 (7:30 AM). These events typically conclude around 0900~0930 (9:00 ~ 9:30 AM). Please make arrangements to come help keep our roads clean!
