Roast of the Grand Master http://lodge160.org/2017/05/10/roast-of-the-grand-master/ Wed, 10 May 2017 20:35:15 +0000 http://lodge160.org/?p=110 Read more]]> On Saturday, May 6th, we hosted our annual roast of the Grand Master at Sultan-Monroe lodge. This event is a great time for fellowship and people getting together to enjoy good food, good company, and have a little fun at the expense of the Grand Master. This year’s event was a great success and a joyous time was had by all, even the Grand Master. Big thanks to WB Larry Foley and the kitchen crew, WB Zane McCune for providing a great, and funny, tribute, Joe Oates for the photography, and everyone that attended!  All the photos can be found at https://wa-masonicphotos.smugmug.com/2017-Current-Team-Events/Grand-Masters-Roast-2017/Grand-Masters-Roast/

Sultan Monroe Lodge and the Chamber of Commerce have their new sign installed today thanks to Brother Larry Foley and my dad Fred Grannan, who I conned into helping with the promise of coffee this morning.  Brother Larry wouldn’t let us take his picture but he really was there.   We had a good time and the signs turned out pretty good.  Right side up and everything!

Sultan-Monroe Lodge spreading Easter Cheer http://lodge160.org/2017/04/24/sultan-monroe-lodge-spreading-easter-cheer/ Mon, 24 Apr 2017 06:49:58 +0000 http://lodge160.org/?p=94 Read more]]> Our Lodge set up a booth to participate in the Annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the City of Monroe.  Many community organizations were present.  With the egg-cellent assistance of the Rainbow Girls from Everett Assembly #9, who demonstrated great rapport with the kids of all ages, we handed out bright blue balloons with our Lodge name and lots and lots of candy. Several of the balloons traveled to great heights as they were accidentally released, one pausing for a short rest in a nearby tree.  Over 250 balloons were given out and with the new safety valves on the balloons inflation went very fast, so we were able to keep pace with the Rainbow Girls handing them out. It was a great time of fellowship for the Brothers and the girls.  And the community got a little more knowledge about Freemasonry.  Thanks to all who participated.

New balloons are a hit with kids and grownups alike!

Many balloons were handed out.

A local tree snagged one balloon before it headed into the stratosphere.

Sultan-Monroe Update http://lodge160.org/2017/04/17/sultan-monroe-update/ Mon, 17 Apr 2017 17:04:21 +0000 http://lodge160.org/?p=72 Read more]]> Sultan-Monroe Lodge is continuing to be active in the community and continuing to be more visible in the community.  We will be attending the Monroe Community Awards on April 26th at 6:30pm to present our Citizen of the Year award, we will be hosting our Roast of the Grand Master on May 6th, and the mural on the side of the building is complete and looking great!  We attended the Stated meeting on Crystal Lodge #122 on April 4th as a surprise visit to a lodge that we usually can not visit because they meet on the same nights as we do.  I have attended several of the Official Visits of the Deputy of the Grand Master in District 8 to show support from Sultan-Monroe Lodge and will be encouraging more travel and visitations to lodges within and without District 8.  I look forward to continuing to server as the Worshipful Master this year, and also as Deputy of the Grand Master starting in June for the next 2 years.  Thanks to Brother Fred Grannan in the assistance of updating our website and we hope our virtual presence continues to grow.

Fraternally,
Steve Martin
Worshipful Master
