Raleigh – District 14 & 15 

James B. Green lodge #735.  Has a couple of events upcoming that they would like to invite brethren to join in.
Saturday, November 1st we will be holding an Emergent Communication at WhiteStone and conferring a FellowCraft degree in their Activities Center.  Brethren are also invited to join us for the meeting, a tour of the magnificent WhiteStone campus, and lunch with the residents.  The campus has undergone a tremendous amount of renovation and added several new resident cottages over the last 5 years.  We will depart Raleigh around 8:30am on Saturday and plan to return between 3-4pm.  The meeting/degree starts at 10am.  Please ask your brethren if they are interested in joining us during your next Stated Communication and provide names of those that want to go.  I know many of you have said “It would be nice to request Special Dispensation to hold a meeting at WhiteStone” Well, here’s your chance.  Feel free to give them my contact info.


Saturday, November 22nd the Wake County Freemasons, together with the Prince Hall Freemasons, will be holding the first annual Wake County First Responders Appreciation Breakfast.  This is our way to further develop Freemasonry throughout our local community and strive to increase interest in our fraternity.  The FreeMasons will partner with all 8 Applebee’s restaurants throughout Wake County from 7-10am to provide a free breakfast for our First Responders.  We will be advertising through Radio, Television, Newspaper, and Social Media to get the word out.


Wake County recently recorded our 1 millionth resident and we want to get as much of the general public out to Applebee’s to eat alongside and share their appreciation for our First Responders. Many of the restaurants will have either Police or Fire personnel on hand with their vehicles and equipment to show and share.


I am developing a list of lodges that align with the various Applebee’s restaurants and would ask that each lodge identify 5 or more brothers who can help us seat, serve and clean up on that morning.  Applebee’s will do the cooking.  We just need to fill the seats.  There are no tickets to sell, rather we just need to direct people to the website.  Me and several of my officers are planning to visit each of your lodges over the next month to solicit your help.  See the attached flyer for more details.
