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 dhutchin@wyoming.com Thanks: Dave Hutchinson – Editor

The Grand Chapter of Utah has been saddened by the loss of three Past Grand Patrons last year.
Ralph B. Hodges, Wayne R. Rives and Bill Jack Westbrook.
On November 14th, 2018 we lost a dear sister, Billie Toone, Past Grand Matron
On January 3rd, 2019 we lost Sister Ruth E. Lay, Past Grand Matron.
The family requests donations in lieu of flowers be made to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary or
the Huntsman Cancer institute or Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital Orthotic and Prosthetic Services.

Bill Jack Westbrook passed away September 5th. He was a past Associate Grand Guardian of Utah and an Associate Guardian for many of the girls in several Bethels. His wife Tricia would like to create a Jobie scholarship that would be given out at rally in his memory. Terry Haven is coordinating this for her and would love for you all to consider donating to the Bill Jack Westbrook memorial scholarship in lieu of flowers. You can make a check out to the Grand Guardian Council of Utah and put Bill Jack memorial in the memo/for line. Send checks to Terry Haven at 2120 S. Hannibal St. SLC 84106.
Thanks so much in advance. The girls and this organization were dear to his heart.
