Greetings from the East,
Brethren, thank you to those who participated in our last meeting. The DDGM’s official visit was a great success. A special thank you to Worshipful Don Brown for his exemplification of the work for the evening. You did a fantastic job as usual.
I was asked to keep this message short this month to make room in the notice for our five candidates and our one affiliate. It is a great problem to have to accommodate for.
Christmas tree sales are in full swing. If you can help with the sales, please let me know; many hands make light work.
At our December meeting Worshipful Robert Peete will be giving a talk on Lodge protocol, and Worshipful Paul Stevenson will be giving a talk on the history of Trinity Lodge.
I hope to see you all there.
Wor. Robert Aggas
Master, Trinity Lodge A.F.& A.M.

Take a look at page 13 of the Trowel’s Summer 2013 Edition to read my latest article that relates the words and artifacts of today’s modern Freemason to the traditions of the old world as we write the latest chapter in the history of the greatest fraternity.

As all brothers of the craft know, The Trowel is a quarterly publication for all masons published by the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. Trinity Lodge has been mentioned in the magazine a number of times, but we wanted to bring two articles to your attention.
The first article was published in the Summer 2010 Edition and it features our Past Master, Worshipful Dale Prentiss. Dale’s story as a former police officer, little league umpire, and long time Mason will no doubt serve as an inspiration. Please click the link above and read his article on page 30… especially if you’d like to know what happens when Wor. Prentiss asks a potential candidate “Did you ever argue with your Little League umpire, or shoot him a dirty look?” Like me, I’m sure this article will bring a smile to your face.
The second article we’d like to share was published in the Winter 2012 Edition. Written by me, Bro. J. Graeme Noseworthy, on Page 19 I share my thoughts on the “The Heartbeat of Freemasonry” and what it is that I truly like about being an Ancient Free and Accepted Mason. Stay tuned because in the Spring 2013 issue, I will expand upon these thoughts in an article entitled “The Greatest Museum.” I think you’ll enjoy it.
