Brothers of Benjamin Franklin Lodge # 45,
We will have a July 7, 2021, Stated Communication to consider consolidation, therefore, your comments and suggestions are requested. The current officers of our Lodge are recommending the consolidation of our Benjamin Franklin # 45 with one or more of the following Lodges: Pyramid # 43, Golden # 50, and Mt. Rose # 40.
Our membership and attendance to meetings have continued to decline, hence, the strain of having enough members present to open the Lodge and meet our financial obligations has become difficult. The previously mentioned Lodges are also facing the same difficulties as our Lodge. The officers of all the Lodges feel these steps are needed for the betterment of Masonry and the stability of the Lodges.
Brothers, Our Stated Communication on October 6, 2021, will be the date we vote on consolidation. This is the 90-day official notice letter being sent to all the Brothers of Benjamin Franklin Lodge # 45, regarding the vote happening in October about consolidation.
Daniel Venters, Secretary
Hello my brothers, hope all is well with you and your family. At our October meeting we will have the important task of voting on consolidation. I ask all voting Brothers to attend and voice your opinions prior to that vote. Remember Brothers we want to do what’s in the best interest for the membership of Benjamin Franklin Lodge #45 and Freemasonry in Northern Nevada so that we may better serve our community. If we keep in mind a simple saying that I heard...
"if you make a decision for the right reason you can't be wrong"
We can make this a great meeting, and I pray for an outcome that will best serve the members of this Lodge.
Looking forward to seeing all the Brothers for our Stated meeting starting at 7:00 PM but please join us for dinner starting at 6:00 PM.
Stay well, stay vigilant and be safe.
Upon the Square
Worshipful Master Randy Subia
