FROM THE EAST:
Civil War Lodge of Research #1865 A.F. & A. M.
Lodge News – November 2020
Fraternal greetings from the East! I pray that this Trestleboard again finds you and yours healthy and safe as we continue as this great nation to weather the storm of this
horrible pandemic. Our next meeting will be in person at Spurmont Lodge No. 98 in Strasburg, VA (135 John Marshall Hwy, Strasburg, VA 22657 ) on December 5th
2020. We hope to have a good day of fellowship and visiting several sites near the Cedar Creek Battlefield. As 2020 draws to an end, I have reflected many times on how
this was not the year any of us planned, however I have also reflected on how blessed I’ve been to have so many wonderful Brothers as part of our Civil War Lodge of
Research. I am happy to report that per our Grand Master of Masons in Virginia, our 2020 Line will remain intact to guide us through 2021. I thank them not only for all they have done this year, but for their service next year. I also wish to thank our DDGM, Brother Marc Hone, who has made sure we have had the support and guidance of our Grand Lodge.
I hope to see you at our next Communication. If you are planning to attend the December 5th meeting, please send me an email so we can track numbers: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sincerely & Fraternally,
Happy Birthday ALL !!! CWLR hit the 25 year mark !!! I
hope you were able to make the Zoom meeting. The 2021
dues cards are here. For those in an annual status, please

now it appears we will end the year with around 310
