The Stated meeting of September, was held on the 15th day of 2019.
Chuck “Wagon” Baylacq and WM Ray Hill served 100+ Breakfasts for the Community Fund Raiser, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the town of San Juan Bautista, California. Worshipful Master of Salinas Lodge Tom Crompton gave many tours of the Lodge Room and answered many questions from the public. He dispelled many conspiracy theories and was aided by the deep history present in Texas Lodge No. 46 to help explain the history of Freemasonry in the west.
Report on Mamouth Mountain Camping Trip:
The Worshipful Master Raymond Hill IV and Secretary Kevin Herrick PM took to the open road, in search of the wilderness. After a LONG drive, the Worshipful Master commented that this drive is not to be repeated anytime soon. Ask WM Ray to tell you the story of how he caught the record-breaking trout, was chased by a gigantic black bear, almost broke his leg in chest-deep water, and was examined by a Doctor.
Visitors: Two weary travelers attended the Lodge Meeting from nearby, and were graciously presented with the customary Mug, by which to remember our “mugs”. These travelers are listed below.
- Richard Goldstein of Mt. Moriah Lodge #292 of Los Gatos CA
- Rich Diaz of San Benito Lodge #211, Hollister CA
