Our Brother John Densem, updated us on the project he is working on w/ Grand Lodge RE: A new Pro-Forma Hall Association Bylaws documentation. Once approved, he may propose we update ours.


We received an Application for Degrees from Mr. Jacob Reed Radcliff of Hollister Ca.  Upon passing background investigations, the usual process will commence.


Breakfast Proceeds were $313 minus -84.75(food cost) for a total $228.25 donation to the building fund.


We received a letter “offering, for us to once again, participate in San Juan Day,  with a Pancake Breakfast Fund Raiser.” The Brethren, agreed this would be a good idea, and a vote was held in affirmative. A committee will be created for the event Sunday August 11th 2024
