This Tuesday, Feb. 12, is the Past Exalted Rulers meeting. That can mean only one thing: It's time for nominations of officers for the 2013-2014 Lodge year. 

If you are a new member and are unfamiliar with what positions are available, here they are: Exalted Ruler, Leading Knight, Loyal Knight, Lecturing Knight, Secretary, Treasurer, Tiler and Five-Year Trustee. If you are interested in the positions of Chaplain, Esquire, Inner Guard, or a committee chairmanship, you must wait until we have an Exalted Ruler-elect. He/she makes those appointments. 

Okay so far? Now, if no one is nominated for an office, that position remains open until our next meeting when the floor is re-opened to entertain nominations for those vacant positions. If only one person is nominated for a position, the secretary casts his unanimous ballot electing those offices. If a position is contested, then we have elections for those contested positions. Next week I'll bring you the names of the nominees and if necessary, outline the rules of elections.

Meanwhile, the Lodge restoration continues apace. Much progress has been made. A new floor in the main hall has been laid, the handicapped-accessible bathrooms are nearing completion, the tiki/service bar is framed out and the kitchen is returning to serviceability. 

There is still much work to be done. If you can spare some time, drop by the Lodge to lend a hand. The more hands, the merrier.
