50 & 60 Year Masonic Service Awards

On February 16’th 2013 Lewisville Lodge held it’s annual Past Masters and Masonic Widows appreciation and recognition dinner. Joining us this evening were several Past Masters and three Masonic Widows. Along with the festivities of the evening we also honored four of our long time Masonic Brethren. Both Brother Luster and Palmer were present with their 60 year lapel pins and certificates by Right Worshipfuls Hardeman and FitzPatrick. Although not in attendance, Brothers Swann and Clem were awarded their 50 year lapel pins and certificates at their homes later the following week.

As an upcoming event in the near future, during our Stated Meeting for the month of May we will also be honoring our 25 & 40 year service award recipients.

Chili Cookoff 2013

Lewisville Lodge No. 201 held it’s annual Chili Cookoff this past weekend on Saturday January 19th. There was a good turnout for this event with many members from the lodge, members of our Eastern Star, and several visitors in attendance. Ten different chilies entered for judging. There were chilies with beans, without beans, and with all different kinds of meat. Some had a little heat, while others had enough heat to make even the bravest Texan wipe a tear from his eyes. There was even one chili with chocolate as the secret ingredient. Everyone who attended the event and had a chance to sample these fine chilies were the real winners, but of course, we must honor those cooks who delivered the very finest Chilies that Lewisville Lodge had to offer.

Below is a picture of this year’s winners: Russina Lee 1st Place, Cameron Hickman 2nd Place, Norah Logsdon 3rd place.

Thanksgiving

We met at the Lodge on Saturday November 17, 2012 for a wonderful meal in honor of the Thanksgiving Tradition. We had a great time visiting with family and friends and gave thanks for the many blessings that each of us share this holiday season.

Below are a few photos from the dinner along with the original Thanksgiving proclamation given by brother George Washington 223 years ago.

 

THANKSGIVING DAY 1789
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – A PROCLAMATION

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war –for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
