Grand Lodge of Utah
Most Worshipful Grand Master Jeffery Hamilton of the Grand Lodge
of Utah has restarted the Utah Mason newsletter and here is the first
edition in the restart. The goal is to focus on the
various bodies and clubs. Communication is key to any
organization and hopefully the newsletter will be useful and
interesting to all Utah Masons and appendant organizations.
All organizations and each person in the Masonic Family is
encouraged to submit articles, editorials, instructional
materials, pictures, etc. to be included in the newsletter.
Articles could include information such as; bringing another
person into your group (if they want to be recognized), special
meetings, dinners, awards, etc. and include pictures. For now,
the plan is to publish quarterly with the hope to make it into a
monthly circular. Send material and pictures to
firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks: Dave Hutchinson – Editor
