Mr. Conejo Award

It was become a recent custom of Conejo Valley Masonic Lodge to bestow upon one of the brothers every year the Mr. Conejo Award. This award is given to a brother of the lodge in good standing who has served the lodge well over the previous masonic year. The 2014 Mr. Conejo Award was given this year to PM Howard “Buster”. Congratulations Buster!

Brethren, it is that time of year, when your Secretary starts to think about next year’s dues. Our dues are $130 per year plus the Per Capita raised to the next $5.00. This year’s Per Capita is going to be either $36.50 or $37.50. In either case our dues will be $170.00. You will be receiving your dues notice about the middle of October. If you haven’t paid your 2014 dues, $170.00, you may want to do it now before 2015 dues are due. We have several 50-year awards to present in the next few months. Please make every effort

Brethren, summer is here, school is out, vacation time is coming and going, and your Lodge is alive and well. All that means that we are approaching the time of dues notices. They will be sent out in October. If you have not yet paid your 2013 or 2014 dues and in order to avoid having also to pay the 2015 dues, a large one time expenditure, please make your payments for 2013 and 2014 now. The Lodge is able to operate and contribute to the community only if its members are responsible and pay their dues. If you need

Brethren, tax time is approaching.  That means you should check and make sure you have paid your 2014 and any delinquent dues.  Your dues go to paying our bills like rent, candidate materials, cost of the Trestleboard, etc.   If you have not paid your 2013 dues, technically, you are delinquent and while you may attend the Lodge you may not ballot on new candidates or any resolutions that may come before the Lodge.  The Master has prepared a stunning new year.  We have a plethora of candidates awaiting their degrees as well as Entered Apprentices and Fellowcrafts awaiting further light.

It is almost dues notice time. The Senior Grand Warden has proposed an increase of $4.50 in the 2013/2014 Per Capita, bringing it up to a total of $36.50. According to our new By-Laws, that means rounding to the next $5.00 which would mean $40.00. Our dues are $130.00 and $40.00 for per capita means our annual amount due is $170.00. Just to put it in perspective, there are Lodges in the Valley that charge almost $400.00 in dues and per capita. Of course the proposal must pass at the Annual Communication. You can expect to see either $165.00 (this
