BackPack Pals

Meets third Wednesday of every month (ex. December), 1:00 p.m. at Beulah Baptist Association, corner of Morgan St and Long Ave. Coordinate with WB Robert Allen, PM.

BackPack Pals began in 2005 with a vision to address the needs of children who often don’t have enough to eat over the weekend. In other areas, it may be known as 'Weekend Power Pack,' but it is the same program.

School of Instruction

To the Masters, Wardens and Members of the Subordinate Lodges of the 19th Masonic District:

There will be a School of Instruction for the 19th Masonic District on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at Eagle Lodge No. 19 in Hillsborough. Every lodge in the 19th Masonic District is required to attend, otherwise you may risk being required by the NC Grand Lodge Board of Custodians to hold a 15 hour mandatory Lecture Service for your lodge.

The School will start promptly at 8:00 am with a full breakfast fundraiser provided by The Rainbow Girls, Hillsborough Assembly #77 for a nominal fee. This is a great opportunity to support one of our local Rainbow Girl Assemblies. We will also start the School of Instruction at 8:00 am with a written test on Masonic ritual and regulations. The School will conclude by 1:00 pm.

If you have suggestions on specific topics from the ritual that you would like to see covered, send them to me, and I will attempt to include them in the topics to be covered.

Each lodge Secretary should get a count of the number of members that are expected to attend for the Rainbow Girls to use in their planning for the breakfast. The lodge Secretary should send me their count by March 10, 2018.

Thanks,

Dicky Lyon
