Will Your Lodge Be Ready?
March & April District Meetings
Bobby Danner D.D.G.M. - 29
With the change in our Constitution allowing 18 year olds to now join our Fraternity, one question faces our Lodges today. Will your Lodge be ready for this newer generation? Our Masonic principles will more than pass the test, but our lodges will be faced with the challenge of providing programs and activities to involve this younger generation. As younger men knock upon our doors of admission, we
need to ask them what it is they are seeking, and find ways to keep these younger men active once they come into our lodges. We as Masons now have a great opportunity to be an important part in a young man’s life. With opportunity comes responsibility. And our responsibility as a Lodge is to make sure that we are ready.

On Friday, October 28, 2008, Corydon Lodge No. 799 celebrated its 100th Anniversary. About ninety guests were present. Dinner was served and followed by an meeting open to the public. Henderson County Sheriff Ed Brady gave a very uplifting talk on the historic changes over the last 100 years. The Lodge received a letter of congratulations from State Senator Dorsey Ridley and a Certificate of Proclamation from Henderson County Judge Sandy Watkins, proclaiming that day as Corydon Masonic Lodge No. 799 Day. The Grand Lodge Officers were given Honorary Memberships to the Lodge. Pictured, left to right, front row: John Perry, Grand Chaplain; J. Husk, Assistant Grand Tiler; Bobby Watt, Grand Tiler; Billy Taylor, Grand Senior Deacon; Jeff Walker, Master; Herman Forrester, Grand Master; Don Yankey, Grand Senior Warden; and Jack Hodges, Past Grand Master.

Harry R. Kendall Lodge No. 750 Master Ritualist Award
The Masonic Lodges in Henderson, got together on February 6, 2009 and served the good linemen from in and out of our State a complete meal. They had been working for over a week trying to get power back on in Western Kentucky. Chicken Breasts, green beans, mashed potatoes, cooked apples, and rolls were served, along with cakes baked by one of our ladies, apple and cherry cobbler, and cookies. Over 120 of the people at Kenergy Corp. were served. Following the storm created by Ike, there were 200 poles down. In the aftermath of this ice storm more than 2,500 poles were down. Many of the lineman said they had served following Hurricanes and Tornados but had never seen the devastation that we have here. These people worked daylight to dark helping the people of Kentucky and this was an honor for the Masons to come together and serve them for this one night.
Grand Senior Warden, Donald H. Yankey (right) presented Brother Herb Edwards PM the prestigious Master Ritualist pin on January 13, 2009. Harry R Kendall Lodge No. 750 is used to having Grand Senior Warden Donald Yankey visit the Lodge, but on this night, he was there to pay a special tribute to Brother Herb Edwards, PM. Brother Herb was honored as the first recipient in the State of Kentucky to receive the Master Ritualist Pin. In his acceptance speech, he mentioned that when he got into Masonry, he was inspired by two “old” men who put on the degree work. “I was amazed that a 92 year old man could know so much.” He vowed at that point to be as good as they were. Brother Herb has done degree work for several lodges across the state over the years, and is recognized as the man to call if you have any questions about it. A Brother is quoted as saying, “You can follow along word for word in the Monitor, and it is truly amazing.” The Ritualist is a new program under the Grand Lodge which is designed to develop Ritualists in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. By providing a level of Excellency in the conferral of our work and opening lodges. (There are three levels of achievement, and the achievement of the award of Master Ritualist would be comparable to the prestigious Honor of being invested with the 33º Degree or KCCH.)
MASONIC HOME JOURNAL
JOSEPH R. CONWAY, P.G.M. Grand Secretary By the time this issue of the Masonic Home Journal is delivered the first of the District Meetings, will be upon us, with several more to follow during the remainder of the month. The line Officers along with the Treasurer and Secretary of each Lodge within the District should attend the meeting. Other Lodge members who aspire to an office in the Lodge should, also attend; for they can learn much that will be helpful to them should they succeed and become Lodge Officers. There is much to learn—both good and bad—from the experience of others and there is no sense in reinventing the wheel each year when it concerns Lodge leadership and the needs of the Fraternity. Well informed and knowledgeable Officers at the Lodge level is the most crucial element in insuring a vibrant and progressive Grand Lodge. The elected and appointed Grand Lodge Officers of any jurisdiction are only the visual examples of the combined health and strength of the Lodges within that jurisdiction. Consequently, somewhere along the line in seeking equilibrium, each Grand Lodge will reach a point of diminishing returns
where the weakest Lodges overcome the effort of the more successful Lodges, and the Fraternity as a whole suffers as the result. Therefore, each Lodge in the Grand Jurisdiction of Kentucky—each officer and certainly, each member should- no, mustmake their best efforts to insure that the Lodge of which they are a member, strives to the utmost to be on the positive side of the equation so as not to detract from the efforts of others. So make sure you are on the right team to move your Lodge forward and not one for whom some Brother has to carry part of his load. MASONIC DIRECTORY Lodge Secretaries, you should soon receive a Masonic Directory for your use. Additional Directories may be purchased from the Grand Lodge Office at cost plus mailing charges. Again this year several Lodges that failed to submit the list of Officers elected and appointed will not be listed in the Directory, and several others were late in submitting the
WEST KENTUCKY CONSISTORY 668 Park Avenue, Madisonville, Kentucky
DONALD ‘KENT’ BERKLEY, 32º MEMORIAL SPRING CLASS
list. This oversight on the part of those Lodges makes the Directory late in completion and less useful to those who may wish to visit or contact those Lodges not listed than it would be otherwise. Each year it is my hope that we can have all Lodges report the newly elected and appointed Officers prior to January 10 and have 100% of the Lodges included in the Directory. Again, this year we didn't make it-Maybe next year!!! ACTIVITY SUMMARY In years past you received your activity summary in March. However, as you know, we are in the process of moving to a new system. All the activity for your lodge has been put in the new system and we are in the process of creating a report. It will “look” differently than ones you have received in the past and you may receive it later than usual. When you do receive it you should carefully review this report and compare it with your records and report any discrepancies to the Grand Lodge Office immediately. It is very important that our records match your Lodges records, so please review this report in detail. THOUGHT FOR THE MONTH “Character is much easier kept than recovered” –THOMAS PAINE

Following the massive ice storm that struck Western Kentucky on January 27-28, 2009, Wickliffe Lodge No. 625 opened its physical facilities on Thursday, January 29, 2009 to provide food, warmth and shelter to many citizens who lost electricity, water and heat from their homes, including a woman in her late forties with both a two-year-old and an eight-year-old who lived in a car for three nights until the gasoline ran out. This effort was led by Brother Floyd Ashcraft assisted by the Worshipful Master, Harry Ashcraft, along with many of the lodge members. The Lodge members assisted by other local citizens cooked three hot meals per day for as many as 600 people per meal and provided overnight shelter for as many as fifteen guests per night. Other lodge members went doorto-door throughout Ballard County to check on the needs of local citizens. The Lodge relied on a large generator (pictured) provided by the county government. Many organizations provided food and supplies, including the National Guard, Salvation Army, Red Cross, all area Baptist Churches, the local Mormon Church, Ballard County Detention Center, and the
New Page Company (local paper mill). The National Guard used the lodge grounds to hand out MREs (meals ready to eat) on Friday and Saturday. When they left, they turned over this task to the lodge members. Many private citizens from surrounding states (Missouri, Illinois, and Tennessee) made donations as well, including a couple from Jackson, Mississippi, who brought a van load of food, diapers, toiletries and cleaning supplies. They had sustained damage from a tornado two years ago. The efforts of these Freemasons drew high praise from local civic leaders. Ballard County Judge Executive, Vickie Viniard, states, “If it wasn’t for the Lodge, there wouldn’t be any place for shelter on this side of town. We would like to thank them for their help. Also Judy Jackson, Director of Ballard County Senior Citizens, states, “Lodge members are to be commended for their help.” She is in charge of the Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Care and Ballard County Rural Housing, which consists of 47 apartments for county senior citizens.
