From the East 

This is my last trestleboard and my swansong.  I again want to thank the lodge for letting me be its Master, as it is an honor and privilege.   

The next year will start with a full core of officers; I ask that you support them and the Lodge in their efforts. 

And finally I want to encourage everyone to remember our responsibilities that we have to our brethren and our neighbors this holiday.  Be thankful at your Thanksgiving for the blessings you have received and remember the lessons our faiths have taught us regarding those less fortunate. 

Keep yourself on the level. 

Ronald W. La Sala, PM


Stated Meeting Dinner:

There will be a Stated Meeting Dinner.  Russell McClintock, PM will be preparing a holiday dinner of Ham, Sweet Potatoes, Pumpkin Soup and desert  Please call Bro. Jim Myron and make your reservation at 916-391-9389. 

From The West 

This will be my last article “From the West” as your Senior Warden, as most of  you know I was elected to move up to the East, and with great pride I accepted. We have a full line of Officers for 2007 it is looking to be a great and exciting year. We are going to make some changes and additions, while keeping up with the old traditions of Sacramento Lodge No.40. 

The installation of Officer will be held on December 17th, 2006 at 2:00PM at the Masonic Temple on 12th and J Street.  Everyone is invited to attend the installation including friend and neighbors. 

After the installation, the Lodge will not meet again in December because of the Holidays. Officers will be required to attend District Officers School on Jan. 2nd and Officers Practice on the 3rd. 

Brethren, January 5, 2007 will be our first Stated Meeting of the New Year, put this on your calendar and come out and encourage your new line of officers. 

I would like to introduce you to next year’s line of Officers:

From the South 

I want to take this opportunity to once again thank the brethren of Sacramento 40 for selecting me as the year’s recipient of the Hiram Award.  This is truly an honor and I will always wear it proudly.  The luncheon and award ceremony at the Hungry Hunter could not have been nicer.  A special thanks to Jim Myron for all his hard work putting the event together. 

Our December 17th Installation of Officers is fast approaching.  I am taking a step backwards to Sr. Deacon Chair.  I am looking forward to working with Cris Alarcon in his soon to be position as Jr. Warden.  I am hoping that younger member will want to take on office and move up through the chairs. 

The holiday season is also fast approaching.  May the holiday season bring much happiness and joy to you and yours. 

Don Hodson, Jr. Warden
