any organization and hopefully the newsletter will be useful
and interesting to all Utah Masons and appendant
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.

make it into a monthly circular. Send material and pictures to
