Another weekly heads-up from the Semi-official Charleston Masonic Town Crier on what's coming up in The Lowcountry that I know about. Thank you to the brothers who sent me word of upcoming events, and thanks for the help and encouraging words I've received from so many of you on this project over the years, as well as everyone’s patience with my typos.

4 Things to do this month (please!):

1) Go to Your Lodge’s next Stated Meeting - SERIOUSLY! Please do it.
2) Attend the next Masters & Wardens meeting.
3) Visit another lodge this month (times & places are all in the Trestleboard).
4) Pray for those in distress.

Guys, we are ALL paying good money to be Masons, why are we not all reaping the benefits of that membership?
No Lodge can survive, even if all the members pay dues, if no one attends the meetings. Show up!
