FROM THE EAST – THE PILLAR OF WISDOM
Greetings from the East.
Welcome to September. This is the month that the Lodge comes out of its summer slumber, and resumes work. But due to our current situation, we find ourselves at an impasse that brings me to my topic this month. The Grand Master has sent out a letter via email, which I have included in this Trestle Board for your reference – see insert.
As of this writing, I have also spoken with our inspector Worshipful John Knox, asking that he will be involved with the rest of the districts to discuss how the election of officers and installation of officers will take place this year.
For now, the Lodge is still moving forward with the renovations. Be safe my brethren, and lookout for one another. May the blessing be upon us all.

FROM THE WEST – THE PILLAR OF STRENGTH
Greetings Brethren from the West.
As our Master and Grand Master have stated, our masonic family is constantly evolving to endure all challenges being presented in our world at this time. Remember my brethren that masonry teaches us to unite with men all around the world, from every country, sect. or province. It is also up to us to treat all men equally within our community.
As we deal with this pandemic, unrest and protests within our communities, as well as catastrophic events of fires and hurricanes, remember our teachings of brotherly love, relief and truth when dealing with these matters. Also remember my brethren, that you are never alone in these times. You are just a text, email or phone call away from help. This can relieve you of your troubled mind by just touching basis with a brother and having a conversation.
Paying the craft, I would like to thank all the brethren who showed up on Saturday the 28th for the Covid-19 work party. We made a big push by assisting brother Kelly Dixon in moving toward the next stage of our Lodge remodel.
Please be safe my brethren, until such a time comes when we can meet together again.

FROM THE SOUTH – THE PILLAR OF BEAUTY
Greetings from the South.
The month of September brings with it the beginning of some much needed renovations in the Lodge room. We will be re-carpeting and painting, installing new side liner seating and getting a new sound/PA system. I would like to thank all those who took some time on the 29th to get the lodge room ready to be worked on.
As I have contemplated the changes we have made over the last year, I began to search the internet for information about our Lodge. While there are a variety of recent events about the Lodge that can be found on the Internet, I did come across a photo that seemed to be relevant to our upcoming 100-year anniversary. I hope you enjoy this small bit of our lodge’s history.
On August 20, 1971, the Sacramento Bee published the following caption and photograph. “Capitol City Masonic Temple Lodge #499 dedication ceremonies. Grand Marshall DeWald M. Baum is directed by the Grand Master Herbert A. Huebner to place a bronze plaque in place.
