From The East - January 2018

From the East

It is hard to believe that another year is upon us. Where does the time go? As this new year begins, I ask that we all think back to what brought each of us to the door of Freemasonry. The reasons that brought us there are as valid today as they were then.  We are currently seeing an influx of new members who are at that point right now. They have knocked at our door and asked for our help to become better men. We have accepted them into our fold and agreed to call them brother.  We now must show them what it means to be a Mason.

So what does it mean to be a Mason? Is it just a cool ring or a bumper sticker?  I know all of us would answer: “No, it is so much more than that.”  Even though we would all say it is more, do our actions show that? How long now have we just been trading on our name? We use examples like George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Where are the examples of today? In other words, what have we done lately?  The next George Washington may very well be amongst the newer brothers that we are bringing up through the ranks now.

We owe it to these new brothers to teach them everything we can about being a Mason. We owe it to ourselves to be the example of what Masonry can and should be. The next time you are in our lodge room, take a look at the pictures on the wall; we owe it to all the brothers that have gone this way before to be the very example that we speak of.  As I said at installation I am both honored and humbled to stand amongst you, my Brothers. I do not take the responsibility of the East lightly. I have both a vision and direction that we need to move towards. I feel that my fellow officers share that vision. It is my hope that this direction will not be seen as a change to Freemasonry in Redmond, but rather a restoration of it.


H. L. Haywood wrote in “More About Masonry,”

"What business has any lodge to be nothing but a machine for grinding out

the work: It was not called into existence in order to have the minutes

read: Even a mystic tie will snap under the strain of cheerlessness,

Repetition, monotony, dullness. A lodge needs a fire lighted in it.”


 I look forward to an exciting and fun year for Redmond Lodge. Our lodge is truly favored by having so many knocking at our door. The work to show them what it means to be a Mason will be difficult but the rewards of that work will far outweigh the effort.  If it were easy, then every man would be a Mason.


Sincerely and Fraternally,

WB. Jerry Anderson

What a Mason Is..........

Puerto Rico Hurricane Disaster Appeal

The devastation that two hurricanes caused in Puerto Rico, particularly Hurricane Maria, is by now well known. With 95% of the island without electricity or communication, and 50% without drinking water, it will take months to recover, but they are in need of help now.

Grand Master Raúl Rodríguez Quiles has contacted the Masonic Service Association of North America asking for help for the brethren of his jurisdiction by issuing a Disaster Relief Appeal.

As Masons across the country have contributed so much to MSA for Texas and Florida, we must again ask the greater Masonic community to try their best to do more. Every dollar sent to MSA will go the affected jurisdiction. Nothing will be deducted for administration, bookkeeping, thank you letters, or PayPal expenses. As with the two previous ongoing appeals, this third appeal for the Grand Lodge of Puerto Rico will help them aid and assist their distressed brothers, families, and lodges.

When you are asked, why? You can proudly answer, "Because that's what Masons do!"

Donations can be made online at Puerto Rico Hurricane Disaster Appeal

Florida Hurricane Disaster Appeal

Hurricane Irma hit Florida with the “longest-lasting powerful hurricane or typhoon ever recorded, worldwide,” according to National Public Radio. More than 60% of the state was without power. Widespread flooding, depleted grocery shelves, and damage from high winds has made life miserable for many.

The Grand Lodge of Florida has requested this Disaster Appeal to care for the many brethren who live in Florida, and have been impacted by the storm. While the damage is still being assessed, the certainty of many months of recovery is expected.

Donations can be made online at Florida Disaster Appeal. When remitting by check, please mark clearly that you wish the funds to go to the Florida Disaster Appeal.

Please forward any donations you feel appropriate to help our devastated Brothers and their families to MSA. Please make checks payable to MSA Disaster Relief Fund and send to 3905 National Drive, STE 280, Burtonsville, MD 20866.

All donations received by MSA and designated for Florida will be collected and forwarded to that jurisdiction. Thank you for your concern.

MSA is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Texas Hurricane Disaster Appeal

Any donations received by MSA and designated for Texas will be collected and forwarded to that jurisdiction. Thank you for your concern.

We were asked if any of your donation to a disaster appeal is deducted by MSA for administrative expense, say 10%, and the answer is "No." All expenses, charges by PayPal, bookkeeping, or cost of thank you letters, everything, is absorbed by MSA in its operating budget. The entire gross donation will be sent to the affected jurisdiction. That's the way it's always been, and that's the way it will continue.

Please forward any donations you feel appropriate to help our devastated Brothers and their families in these stricken jurisdictions to MSA
