Brother Clark Gable, Beverly Hills Lodge No. 528
Principles of Leadership: Communication When we speak to each other, it does not take a lot of effort to see how you are being received - if we just tune in. Just notice a brothers body language for starters; his facial expressions, his shoulders, etc. Are we giving constructive criticism? Or are we just not concerning ourselves with their feelings and pushing what matters. I am reminded of "who best can work and best agree." *an excerpt from Worshipful Master Tom Mich, May 2016 Trestleboard. Click the image below to read the full article
May is National Preservation Month - and we're celebrating the Phoenix Masonic Temple. Construction began in 1925 and was completed in 1926. The temple is 4 stories tall, has 3 lodge rooms and over 46,000 sf. It has been home to Barry Goldwater, members of the Luhrs family and John Rhodes — just to name a few! #thisplacematters #thisplacemattersphx

Every wonder why Masons end their prayers in "So Mote it be"? It's a tradition rooted in the early days of Masonic history - going all the way back to the Regus Poem in 1390AD. Read the story below to learn more- and Get your Mote on tonight for a 3rd degree at Arizona #2!
Over the course of the following year, our Worshipful Master will be discussing principles of leadership in the Trestleboard. Here is the a clip from the first installment - the February, 2016 Trestleboard: "Leaders do not demand respect; they earn it by setting visionary goals and inspiring others to achieve those goals. In this instance, we define success as being all you can be within the bounds of doing what is right for the organization. To earn respect and to achieve excellence you must first be a man of good moral character, to do everything you are supposed to do in an outstanding manner" ...Worshipful Master Tom Mich Sr. A link to the full article and the Feb. 2016 Trestleboard: http://media.wix.com/ugd/ffe5d1_9719bb3ee4b94a72b21873cd59c58634.pdf

We had a great time at Acacia Lodge visitation last night. Congratulations to brother Greenfield - Acacia's newest Fellowcraft. Thank you worshipful Matt O'Halloran for allowing us to visit - and thank you Acacia #42 brothers for being such great hosts!
Acacia Masonic Lodge XLII is the result of a merger of two West Valley Lodges in 2001. The members of Buckeye Valley Lodge No. 42 and Acacia Masonic Lodge No. 47 merged to form Acacia Masonic Lodge XLII and it was chartered by the Grand Lodge of Arizona on June 2, 2001. Buckeye Valley Lodge No. 42 was originally chartered by the Grand Lodge of Arizona on April 25, 1950. And Acacia Masonic Lodge No. 47 was originally chartered by the Grand Lodge of Arizona on April 26, 1954. Join us for an evening of ritual with our brothers in the West Valley tonight!
