Most Worshipful Grand Master Jeffery Hamilton of the Grand Lodge of Utah has restarted the Utah Mason newsletter and here is the second 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 dhutchin@wyoming.com Thanks: Dave Hutchinson – Editor
