My Brothers,

t is almost the fourth of July and it seems like only yesterday we were freezing. Next month is our last month before the August break remember grand lodge will occur before we get back. So if we have any grand lodge business, we must talk about it and make decisions in July.

We had a nice time and a good turnout at the Night at the Races. Hope to see many Brothers at upcoming meetings.

Fraternally yours,.

Hugh Summers

I am still looking for biographies to publish in the Owatonnan. Please submit your story to me in an email to jb4email-2@yahoo.com.

This new feature was suggested in an officer's meeting as a way of getting to know one another better. It does make for interesting reading.

We all have a story to tell so please share yours.

Word to the Wise

A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

It's bad luck to be superstitious.

What is the best thing about living in Switzerland? Well, the flag is a big plus.

I walked past a homeless guy with a sign that read, "One day, this could be you." I put my money back in my pocket, just in case he's right.
