Our Lodge phone 501 - 835 - 4545 has been discontinued

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master

Brethren:
Thank you. Thank you for your help and direction during
my year as Worshipful Master of our lodge. It has been
an honor and privilege to serve you, Sylvan Hills Lodge
and our fraternity for the past 12 months.

I set some pretty high goals for myself at the start of
the year and didn't quite make all of them but got close.

I know that Brother J. D. will lead our lodge in the right
direction during his tenure.

Oh yeah, I really appreciate your "encouragement",
or should I say pushing, in getting me ready to confer
the Masters Degree on my son. That meant a lot to
me and Mike! We still talk about it.

Again thanks for all your help and lets all continue to
increase membership in our lodge and fraternity.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master



From the 2009 East
J.D. Sexton
Worshipful Master (2009)

Brethren:
The officers have been installed and the New Year begins

I would like to thanks all my officers for this year for
their commitment to the lodge. I know that together
wewill have a wonderful year.

Our first big event will be Saint John's night on the 27th.

This will be our opportunity to show the lodges of our
district the hospitality of "The Friendly Lodge" Sylvan
Hills Lodge #754.

I would like to have a large turn out so contact all the
brethren, family & friends you can and urge them to attend.

Fraternally,
J. D. Sexton Worshipful Master - 2009

Brethren:
Thank you to all of you who have already sent your 2009
dues. If you've sent your check, your card will be in the
the mail shortly, along with perpetual members and 50 year
members.

Please notice that our Stated Communication in January has
been postponed, with a dispensation from the Grand Master,
until the 8th.

Finally, congratulations to the newly elected and appointed
officers.

I'm looking forward to another great year at Sylvan Hills!

November 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master
Brethren:

Thanks to all the brothers that worked so hard to make our
annual Lodge Family Night a success. Brothers, the catfish
was "outstanding"! We served over 100 hungry brothers
& their families. It was good to see our lodge dinning hall
filled with happy, and full, people.

From what the cooks told me we had a hand full of chicken
pieces, a couple of hush puppies, and two pickles left. This
is a great testimony to their cooking ability.

By the way, who got the last piece of chocolate cake?
Oh well, I didn't need it anyway.

If you missed our Past Master's Night you missed a great night
of Masonic fellowship and degree work. The Entered Apprentice
Degree was conferred on Brother Thomas Lopez by Brother J.R.
Davidson, one of the last two Charter Members of our lodge.

It was a real treat to watch our Past Masters perform in the
stations for the degree. The Masonic wisdom of many, many
years was at work that night. Great job Brothers.

I again encourage all brothers to attend lodge meetings
and enjoy the Masonic fellowship of our fraternity. I wish
everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master

Brethren:
I have a couple of things on my mind this month.
First, the 2009 dues cards have been sent by the Grand
Lodge. Those of you who are perpetual members can expect
to receive yours, with the latest roster of membership, in
the mail soon.

Also, the Lodge voted at the November Stated Communication
to remit the dues of our 50 year members, so members of 50
years can expect yours, soon, too.

For the rest, please remember that dues are due on the first
of the year. You can send your 2009 dues of $50.00 any time
to: Post Office Box 6221 Sherwood, Arkansas 72124

The other item of business that strikes me this month is our
annual Lodge Scholarship. The deadline for 2009 applicants is
February 1, 2009.

Remember that all children and grandchildren of Lodge members
who will graduate from High School in 2009 are eligible to apply.

Application forms and information is available from me, at the
lodge, and on our website: CLICK HERE

I, too wish you a happy and safeThanksgiving with family & friends.

October 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
October is going to be an exciting month at your lodge.
First, we have our "Family Night Dinner" scheduled for
Saturday October 18th starting at 6:00 PM. We will be
serving fried catfish and chicken with all the trimmings.

This would be a great time to invite some of our brothers
and their families that have not attended lodge in some time.
I hope to have a large turn-out so please mark your calendars.

Second, we are honoring our "Past Masters" with a special
dinner and if that's not enough, we will confer the first degree
of Masonry on Thomas Gregory Lopez. Please plan on
attending and enjoy a fine meal and help with conferring
the degree. It sure would be great to have 25 Master
Masons in attendance!

I want to also remind my principal officers and all interested
brothers that there is going to be a Leadership Training Class
conducted on Saturday October 11, 2008 at the Grand Lodge
starting at 9:30 AM. The class is sponsored by the Grand Lodge
and I encourage all lodge officers to attend.

Our lodge breakfast is Saturday October 25, 2008 starting at
7 AM. I know this is early for some of you but we serve a
breakfast that I guarantee will give you a "jump start" to the day.

In conclusion I want to thank all of you for supporting our lodge
and the support you have shown me as Master of the Lodge.

See you at the lodge!

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master



On the Secretary's Desk
T.J. Henwood, PM
Brethren:
Thanks to all of you who have called or emailed with your military
service information. If you have not yet communicated your service
information, please do so that we can properly honor your service.

But, there is a more pressing bit of information I need in the next
week or so. That is, which of our Past Masters would like to
work in the EA Degree on Past Master Honor Night?

It is traditional that we offer the chairs for the degree to the
Past Masters on that evening. So if you would like to work
in the degree, please call or email me before October 18,
the Family Night.

That brings up another issue for this month, the family fish
fry on Saturday, October 18th. We will serve at 6 PM
There will be no charge, and no "kitty" that night. This
is a night strictly for us, as Masons, to honor and gather
with our families. We hope you and yours can attend.
(There will be chicken available if you don't care for fish.)

September 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
There are several events that we need to plan and schedule
for the next couple of months. First, we need to be planning
for our Lodge Family Night. Several brothers have made
mention of this and want to have a fish fry.

The weather will be cooler by then and I think it’s a good idea.
We have chosen the 18th of October.

Second, we need to schedule the Past Master’s Honor Night.
We usually schedule a degree for that night and we may have
an EA Degree ready by October. We have tentatively set this
for the 23rd of October.

Last, but not least by any means, is the thought that we may
want to honor our returning Masonic brothers that have been
serving our country in Iraq. For that matter let’s extend that
honor to all of our veterans with a Military Honor Night.

We have several in Iraq now and I know we have several
veterans from other foreign service that we need to honor.

Please think about these events and watch your Trestle Board
for details on all these events. You can see we have a busy time
in our future but a time for friendship and fellowship with our
Masonic brothers.

This would be a good time to invite a brother that has missed
some meetings to come on back & enjoy a night of Masonic fellowship.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master



On the Secretary's Desk
T.J. Henwood, PM
Brethren:
Thank you for your thoughts regarding how we can honor our
members who have served our nation’s Military. After our
discussions at the Stated meeting, we think it would be best
to wait until after the first of the year.

Those currently deployed will be home, and will have had time
to get settled in by then. We’re looking at the 3rd Saturday of
January.

One thought that was shared was that we should honor ALL
of our members who have served. We overwhelmingly agreed
that this was the thing to do. So, I need your help.

The lodge records do not indicate Military service. If you have
been in the service, or you know of a lodge member who has,
PLEASE let me know.

We want to invite all, and we do not want to miss anyone.
This event will be open to families, so we also want to invite
the families of any Sylvan Hills member who served in the
Military, but who may have passed on, so that their service
can be recognized as well. Please let me know.

Fraternally,
T.J. Henwood, PM

August 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
I have to say that July was indeed a special month for me. I had
the opportunity that few Lodge Master’s or fathers have, that is
to confer the Master’s Degree on his son. It was a night that I
will not soon forget.

We had sixty-one, yes sixty-one, Master Masons in attendance!
This is great recognition for our lodge and its members. Again,
thank you to all my brothers from Sylvan Hills, to the many other
lodges and special thanks to the Grand Line Officers that attended.

Michael has said again and again how impressed he was with the
ritual work and by the number of brothers that helped. He will turn
in his Master’s proficiency lecture Thursday August 21, 2008.

Yes we retrieved the Proctor Traveling Gavel from Faulkner Lodge!
It is home again and I hope it will have an extended visit this time.
The members of Faulkner Lodge treated us to a good old home
cooked meal of fried chicken, home grown tomatoes, brown beans
and corn bread. If that was not enough they topped it all off with
home made chocolate pie!

Their hospitality was appreciated but they didn’t “sway” us from our
appointed duty, to retrieve the gavel.

For several years we have “nursed” our old A/C unit. I think it’s time
we entertain the idea of replacing it. I have asked the building committee
to submit a plan for replacement at the September stated meeting.
If you have thoughts or ideas on this please contact the committee.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master

T.J. Henwood, PM
Brethren:
Last month, I was reminding you about our members serving in Iraq.
At our Stated Meeting in July, Jason Crawford’s wife, Misty came
by the Lodge, and let us know that the unit should be home by
year’s end.

I think the Lodge should do something to honor our members’
service. Please let me, or WM Felcher know if you have any
thoughts about what we can do.

July 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
This month is going to be special. My son, Brother Michael Felcher,
will be raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason on July 24th.

What makes this even more special is the fact that I will confer the
degree. I know he is nervous about receiving his Master's degree,
but not near as nervous as I am about conferring it.

I will be honored if everyone in our lodge would come out that night
and enjoy this special occasion.

We also set Monday July 28th as the time we would pay a visit to
our brothers in the Faulkner Lodge to retrieve our gavel. We need
the three principal officers plus five members to make this trip.

If you can make the trip please let me know at one of our regular
Thursday night meetings.

I encourage, no, I challenge you, to call one of our brothers that
hasn't been to lodge in a while and urge them to come back and
enjoy some good Masonic fellowship.

We also have several members that have yet to pay their 2008
dues. Please, if you can, get your dues current.

We have several important nights scheduled this month so come
out and enjoy an evening with your Masonic brothers.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


On the Secretary's Desk
T.J. Henwood, PM
Brethren:
Last month Brother Gary Fortson brought up an excellent
subject just before we closed the lodge, when the Worshipful
Master asked for anything for the good of Masonry.

Brother Fortson was concerned about our members serving
in the Military. He specifically wanted to be sure that no mason
from Sylvan Hills was suspended for nonpayment while serving
our country.

I can assure everyone that, as far as I know, that is not the case.

In fact when Brother Billy Don Garner returned from his tour in
the Middle east, the lodge paid his dues for the year.

However, we do have two brothers stationed in Iraq;
Brothers Doug House and Jason Crawford.

I have heard from each of them via e-mail. I believe they would
really appreciate an e-mail from their Lodge brothers. If you have
e-mail, take a moment, and send a note of support to each of them.

Doug House: roy.house@us.army.mil

Jason Crawford: renegaderngr@aol.com

What better way to celebrate the 4th of July?

June 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
I want to start by saying thanks to our Building Committee for their
efforts in keeping our lodge cool in this warm weather.

It seems as if every Thursday Brother Joe Reynolds is out checking
our A/C to ensure that we have cool air for our meeting. Thanks Joe
for your work and your concern for our lodge.

Thanks also to Brother Dave Freeman, of Airtec.

I want to remind you of the celebration of "Saint John the Baptist"
that is being held at Mt. Sinai Lodge, in beautiful down town Levy,
on Tuesday evening June 24, 2008. They will serve a meal at 6 PM
and Lodge at 7 PM. I encourage all of you to attend & enjoy a night
of Masonic fellowship and brotherhood.

Brothers it is time we retrieve the "Traveling Gavel" and bring it home
to Sylvan Hills Lodge! It is currently at Faulkner Lodge. Because
of St. John's in June, our next opportunity will be Monday July 28th.

We need the three (3) principal officers plus five (5) lodge members
to retrieve the gavel. Please let me know if the July date is good for
you and let's go get the gavel...

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


On the Secretary's Desk

Brethren:
This month our Treasurer’s report shows us a little more than $600.00 in the red compared to our budget. Why? There are some 35 members who have not yet paid their dues for 2008. At $50.00 each that’s $1750.00. That’s more than the difference.

Are you one of the 35? If so, please help your Lodge by sending your
2008 dues today. Help us be 100% by the 4th of July!

Also, please keep the Lodge informed of change of address, phone and e-mail.

Speaking of e-mail, I have a list of Lodge members who I send e-mails to about Lodge activities. If you would like to be on this list, send me a note at: sylvanhills754@gmail.com I promise, no Jokes or spam. Just occasional short notes about Lodge activities. Hope to see you at Lodge, soon.

May 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master

Brethren:
I am excited to announce the conferral of the Fellowcraft Degree
on my son, Michael Felcher, set for May 8.

Brethren, I have a feeling of pride that is hard to describe in words.
I hope you can come and share in this with me, and our Lodge.

I also want to encourage ALL Master Masons to attend the Grand
Master's area meeting on Saturday, May 10, at the Scottish Rite
Temple, at 7th and Scott Streets, in downtown Little Rock, AR.

The doors will open for coffee and donuts at 8 AM. Registration
is from 9 - 10, and the Grand Master's presentation from 10 until
noon. A lunch will be served, and following that, the Master's
Degree will be conferred in full form using the Scottish Rite stage,
props, and robes. It should be something to see!

I'm hoping we have a good turn out of the officers, and members,
because there are going to be awards for the best attendance.

There's a lot going on this month, and June looks busy, too. I'd like
to try to visit Faulkner Lodge on the 23rd of June to retrieve our
Traveling Gavel. Mark your calendar now, and let's roll!

If you haven't been to Lodge in a while, I'd like to see you, soon.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master

Brethren:
As our Worshipful Master says, May and June are turning out to
be busy months for Sylvan Hills, and Masonry in Arkansas.

I, too, want to encourage you to attend the Grand Master's meeting
on May 10. I'd sure like to see one of the attendance plaques hanging
on our wall!

I am also excited about Grand Master Graham's musical program. On
May 16th, the Grand Organist from the Grand Lodge of Scotland is
coming to present an evening of organ music at the 1st Presbyterian
Church, across the street from the Scottish Rite.

There will be a reception to follow, where you will have an opportunity
to meet the artist.

Of course, we're busy, too with a Fellowcraft Degree, Masonic Education,
and our monthly breakfast. Always remember, your family and friends are
welcome at the breakfast.

On the more mundane side of things, dues continue to come in. We are
approximately 83% paid at this point. Check your card, and if it doesn't
say 2008, send your check for $50.00 today. Help us be 100% by the
4th of July!

Brethren:
Congratulations to Brother Scott Looney on becoming a Master Mason!
We had a great degree night with brothers from several lodges and from
the grand line participating. Thank you for helping in the degree & please
visit Sylvan Hills Lodge any time.

My special thanks to Most Worshipful Grand Master Brother James
Graham for his visit and taking part in Brother Scott's degree.

Brother Scott told me he was impressed with our work and wanted to
thank everyone that took part.

We will be scheduling clean-up days for the lodge and for North Hills
Children Center. Please gather up your rakes, gloves and shovels!

Again, I want to encourage all of our members to attend lodge and
enjoy the fellowship of our fraternity.

Brethren:
Although it doesn't show up in his article, our Worshipful Master
is a little under the weather. He went in this past week for some
tests on his heart, and wound up in surgery having a stint implanted.

As of Thursday, the 3rd, he was home and doing well. Give him
a call, and send him your best wishes.

As always, I would remind you all how important it is to keep the
Lodge current regarding your personal information such as address,
phone, and e-mail.

Also, I want to remind you that if it is your desire that you receive
our final tribute of a "Masonic Funeral", or as I prefer to call it a
Masonic Memorial, please let your closest family know of your
desires, as well as your funeral director, if you pre-arrange, and
me, so that I can make a note in your Lodge file.

Hope to see you in Lodge soon.

March 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master

Brethren:
I've been your Master for three months now and I'd like to say thanks
for all the support you have given me and the lodge during the first part
of my tenure.

Sylvan Hills Lodge is one of the best lodges in our fraternity and that's
because of our members. I ask that you continue to visit with our
"Rusty Masons" and encourage them to come back and enjoy the
brotherhood of Masonry.

Remember, we will continue to grow if we work and act by the square
of morality towards all mankind.

If all goes as planned, we will confer the Master’s Degree on Brother
Scott Looney on March 27.

That would be a great time to come back and rekindle your association
with your brethren. Again, thanks for your support & I'll see you in lodge!

The 2008 Scholarship Committee met on March 6, 2008. Upon the
recommendation of the committee, the Lodge has voted to award
the 2008 Scholarship to Taylor Brown, of Cabot, AR.

Taylor is the grandson of Bro. Bob Trask. His application showed
excellent academics, and well-rounded extracurricular activities.
He is already accepted to the University of AR at Fayetteville.

Again, it was a difficult choice, and all the applicants scored well.

I guess it is that time of year for me to begin singing the “pay your
dues
” lament. Actually, we are doing well so far this year; and my
thanks to the 139 of you who are already paid for 2008.

If you are in the remainder of the those who make up the rest of our
179 members, please send your dues of $50.00 today.

As always, if you are experiencing a situation that makes your dues a
burden, contact me, the Worshipful Master, or some member of our
Lodge and let us know. We would want to help you.

February 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
I want to start by saying "thank you" to all that worked in the
EA Degree for Brother Caves and the Fellowcraft Degree for
Brother Looney. The degree work was excellent & the kitchen
also did their part by providing a great meal.

Let's encourage these brothers to get on their lectures and turn
them in as soon as possible.

We also have several "Rusty Masons", those that have started
their degree work & failed to continue, that need encouragement
from us. I want each of you to contact one of these brothers and
invite them back to their lodge to continue their education and
Masonic fellowship. We will be scheduling a night in the near
future for that purpose.

We have two Brothers that have been Master Masons for 50
years! They are Brothers Ellis Benton and John Ison. That's
quite an accomplishment, to say the least.

I will present them their "50 Year Pins" at our stated meeting in
March. Please be there to help honor these Brother Masons.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher

We have received four excellent applications for the 2008
Sylvan Hills Lodge Scholarship. Two of the applications
came from Sylvan Hills High School, and two are relations
of Sylvan Hills Masonic Lodge members.

The Scholarship Committee will meet at 5 PM on March 6,
2008, at the Lodge to select the 2008 winner(s). All members
of Sylvan Hills Masonic Lodge #754 are welcome to attend
and observe the selection process.

Otherwise, this month, just a couple of "housekeeping" notes,
or reminders.

It is important to keep the Lodge informed of your current
mailing address. Thanks to those who have recently informed
me of changes.

Also, if you desire a Masonic Funeral, or as I prefer to call it,
Memorial service, please be sure to inform your family of your
desires, and ask them to inform the Lodge upon your death.

Actually, we'd like for families to let the Lodge know when
one of our members is ill, or hospitalized, so that we can
send a card, or visit, & especially, include them in our prayers.

Also, let me know of your wishes, so that I can make a note
in your Lodge records. Feel free to email me, Click Here

January 2008

From the East
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


Brethren:
I hope all of you had a merry Christmas and are enjoying a
happy New Year.

I have two goals for this year: First, I want to continue our
relationship with the North Hills Child Services Center.
They appreciate our help, and more than that, they need us.

Second, I want to increase our membership by ten. I know
that's a high number, but we can do it. We already have 2
EA's, and one new member by affiliation.

This month we will start another EA on the 17th.
So, we are almost half-way there!

Again, thank you for electing me Master for 2008.

Fraternally,
Robert Felcher
Worshipful Master


On the Secretary's Desk

Brethren:

I have to report that we lost 9 members at the close of 2007.
One transferred his membership to Texas, and eight were
suspended for non-payment. So, we need to meet WM
Felcher's goal of ten new Master Masons in 2008, just
to recover.

There is one ray of hope, however. Those eight who did
not pay for 2007 can be reinstated, simply by paying their
2007 and 2008 dues before the end of 2008.

Included with this edition of the "Trestleboard", you will
find a generic Dues Notice. Postal regulations prohibit
personalized messages on the bulk permit. So, if you will
accept this notice as your notice to pay for 2008, you can
save our Lodge the expense of individual dues notices.

I hope to see you at Lodge in 2008!
