Masonic Family Field Day, August 21, 2004

At the Masonic Family Field Day in Brandon on Saturday, August 21, the Grand Master was captured by "Sheriff" John Eaton and led away to fulfill his sentence of kissing the cow. Rumor has it that the Grand Lecturer donated $20.00 to the Calling Card program for the privilege of making it happen.

Although the event was held outdoors on a very rainy day, the enthusiasm and spirit of the participants was high and a grand time was had by all who attended. Congratulations to Sister Mary Jane Eaton, Worthy Grand Matron, for coming up with this idea and following through on it.

Others will report how much money in total was raised by the event, but we collected money enough for a great many PhoneHome calling cards for our troops around the world. This program is sponsored jointly by the Masonic Service Association in Silver Springs, Md. and the U.S.O with the assistance of the A.T. & T. phone company. Each card costs $7.00 and provides the individual who receives the card among our troops wherever they are stationed, to 100 minutes of international calls from anywhere in the world.

Heroes Of 76 Hold Bivouac In Williston

The drum roll sounded as the John Stark Camp of the Heroes of 76 unit of The National Sojourners opened an encampment in Williston. The soldiers of the Continental Army considered a request from Brother Clifford L. Hill, Jr of Mt. Mansfield, No. 26 to become a recruit. After careful interrogation and an encounter with the perils of the Delaware, he proved himself to be worthy and was accepted into the Camp.

Having noted that no impending battles were approaching the Encampment was dismantled until orders arrive from headquarters for the meeting of the Camp.

Simultaneously, the Camp Followers of John Stark Camp initiated two ladies into their organization.




At a recent meeting of Mt. Anthony Lodge #13 in Bennington, the Grand Master awarded two 50-year service awards to Bros. Theodore
Thomas and Frederick Watson, Sr.
