Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons, of Colorado and Its Jurisdiction

MOST WORSHIPFUL Grand Master's Address 2006-2007

"Squaring our Actions...Making a Difference"

"The mission of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Colorado and its Jurisdiction is to improve the quality of life for its members and community, by participating and liberally contributing to charity and participating in self improvement and community projects." To: Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Most Worshipful Past Grand Masters, all elected and appointed Grand Officers, Past Grand Masters, Worshipful Masters, Brothers, Visiting Grand Masters and Guest. Greetings: Giving honor to God and our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to whom we owe all, and under this spectacular canopy of heaven and the beautiful skies of Colorado Springs, I greet you and to welcome you to the 131st Annual Communication of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge. It is my distinct pleasure to address you as the 60th Most Worshipful Grand Master of Prince Hall Masons of Colorado and its Jurisdiction. We, Prince Hall Masons, have a duty to God, our neighbors and ourselves. Our first duty is to God, for it is our belief in God that our beloved fraternity was founded. It is the very same principle that our country was, also, founded. Our relationship with the Grand Architect of the Universe must not falter. We must honor our commitment to God and actively participate in our churches. When we request of a church to participate and share our Masonic traditions with a church. We must remember that we are guest and respect the dignity of the church. In taking a reminder from Past Grand Master Black, we must subdue our passion and practice the true Masonic virtues of friendship, morality and brotherly love. Necrology Once a gain the broad wings of death have entered into our little colony and called twelve of our beloved brothers to that undiscovered land from which no traveler returns. Right Worshipful Grand Chaplin, please, give us some words of comfort for our departed brothers who have crossed into that undiscovered land where there is no night and no day and where life is eternal and whose memory will remain in our hearts forever. Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master; call the craft up in order to attend to prayer.

Poem

I share with you this poem that the Honorable John L. Westbrook, Most Worshipful Past Grand Master, too many of us Past Grand Master Westbrook was a good friend. He would often times recite this poem.

A Man in the Glass When you get what you want in your struggle for self, And the world makes you king for a day, Just go to the mirror and look at yourself, And see what that man has to say. For it isn't your father or mother or wife, Whose judgment you must pass, For the fellow who's verdict counts most in this life, Is the one staring back from the glass. Some people may say you're a straight-shootin' chum, And call you a wonderful guy. But the man in the glass thinks you're only a bum, If you can't look him straight in the eye. He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest, For he's with you clear up to the end. And you've passed your most difficult test. If the man in the glass is your friend. You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years, And get pats on the back as you pass, But your final reward will be heartache and tears If you've cheated the man in the glass. State of the Nation "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ". Patrick Henry There has been so much happening in our world that it is difficult to know where to begin with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan leaving many of our soldiers dead wounded or maimed psychologically. The many accounts of children being molested in our schools and churches and now coming forward and being awarded multi-millions of dollars. The rising cost of petroleum and other goods and services. The ever devastation of global warming, forest fires, hurricanes, tornados and other natural disasters makes it difficult of deciding where to begin in reporting the state of our nation. The moral attitude of the nation is changing. Gone are the days when our neighbors were as our extended parents. We did not want any of them catching us doing something we knew we should not, because we might get two spankings. We knew that our parents would take immediate action. We often hear recited from the lips of many the African Proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child." As children we had to be aware of the constant surveillance of our neighbors. Many of us can remember the day when the word of an adult was not disputed by a child and our parents in their wisdom were not entirely blind sided by reports, but would counsel their children and teach them to be more responsible and polite in the public. Today parents are taking the word of their children over that of adult neighbors and other authorities.

We have made progress in the American society. Despite gains in our country black males continue to lag behind the success of white males. The state of Black-American men is sad, according to the National Urban League's 2007 State of Black America, an annual report card that provides an economic and social comparison between black and white Americans. This year's report focuses on black males, who are disproportionately worse off than white men on many levels. Black men are more than twice as likely to be unemployed as white men and make only seventy-five percent as much per year. They're nearly seven times more likely to be incarcerated, and their average jail sentences are ten months longer than those of white men. In addition, young black men between the ages of 15 and 34 are nine times more likely to die of homicide than their white counterparts and nearly seven times as likely to have from AIDS. Our President continues to loose the confidence of American electorate seemingly daily with his continued stance on the Iraq war. The change of seats in the Congress is, also, challenging the President to make changes in his policies the war as well as economic conditions that have resulted in increased pricing especially in petroleum products which is causing increased pricing in other areas of our economy. Immigration is another issue that haunts the President as we see that our borders are seemingly more unsecured. The immigration issue affects us in the Southwest Region because of our close proximity to the Mexican Boarder. Our area is growing faster than many of those in the Eastern Time zone. There has definitely been a shift in the population growth in the United States with the majority now existing the Southwest with cities like Houston, Phoenix, San Diego supplanting cities in the east namely Cleveland, Pittsburg and Buffalo who are showing a declined in growth. Global warming is a real threat to the well being of the planet and we need to be concern how it will affect our children. We are now seeing a greater concern about emissions of carbon dioxide gasses. Manufacturing of products are being outsourced to several other countries and we are seeing more emissions from the Far East and South America. Conservation and protection of the various species of plant and animal life is of a greater concern around the world. State of Freemasonry There is some conversation among Prince Hall Masons regarding dual membership. Brother John Williams, President of the Phalxis Society states I have always been of the opinion that dual membership could do more good than harm to Prince Hall Masonry; however there is much resistance to the idea in our ranks. This statement was made in response to information he received from Bro. Matthew A. Taylor, III, MWPHGL of MN & MWPHGL of TN, in which he states; "we need to clarify something. With regards to the plural membership within Prince Hall, you are correct in that one cannot hold an office within the 'other Lodge'. However, here in Minnesota, Prince Hall Masons can join the Ancient Free & Accepted Masons Lodges and hold elected positions in both Lodges. This creates an interesting situation for those who wish to pay dues in both Grand Lodges and one could in theory, become Grand Master of both. Here in Minnesota, we have full recognition with our Masonic counterparts. Even in the Shrine, we enjoy participation in the Shrine Circus, Shrine Hospital and other events. However, we cannot join their Shrine Temple, because both Imperial Shrines do not recognize one another officially. Coming from Tennessee, I witnessed firsthand the lack of love between the "mainstream" Masons and Prince Hall mostly; this comes from the old heads who, still hold resentment for past actions. Though younger "mainstream" Mason entertain the thought of recognition and dual membership, still, the old heads dash any hopes of this." There will most likely be discussions of "Dual Membership and/or Plural Membership" by the Fraternal Relations Commission and we the member of this Grand Lodge must consider the implications of such an action.

Four Corners Conference The Four Corners Grand Master's Conference was held at the Texas Station Casino and Resort Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Honorable Tyrone Freeman, Most Worshipful Grand Master of Nevada hosted the conference that provided us with some valuable information regarding 1.) Community health issues regarding the importance of our taking care of our bodies and taking the time to attend to insignificant problem that may be a warning signal. 2.) The "No Child Left Behind" presentation was also informative and pointed out the positive aspects of the President's education program. These were important issues that we in the Four Corners were supporting at the Conference of Grand Master's. The speakers were experts in their field and made their presentations very interesting. The presentations that were given at this Four Corner Conference were very informative making the setting for next years conference more challenging for us to improve upon. The 2008 Four Corners Grand Master's Conference will be held in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the Sheraton Hotel. Planning is already under way in order to make it a successful conference and we ask for your support by attending this conference and participating in the various activities. Conference of Grand Master's The Conference of Grand Master's and Grand Matrons was a tremendous success. Many accolades were given to this Grand Master for the hospitality that was provided to the attendees of the Conference. It left us with smiles and satisfaction. The Honorable Raymond Black, Past Most Worshipful Grand Master and his committee is commended for a job well done. He ensured that our guest left Colorado with joy and gladness in their hearts. He was able to immediately address problems that required his urgent attention. He, obviously, could not do the job alone and all of the committee members and other volunteers are commended for their cheerful response to the call to duty. The President of the Conference the Honorable Sheldon Redden, Most Worshipful Grand Master of Maryland, provided us with a new and fresh approach to the conference. The Honorable Dr. Benjamin Hooks, Most Worshipful Grand Master of Tennessee graced us with an outstanding oration at the banquet he was very elegant in recanting our history and the importance of our continued vigilance to insure racial equality in America. Reverend Benjamin Watson, Pastor of Jordan Chapel, AME Church was exceptional in his message to the conference and received a standing ovation for his powerful message regarding our fallen Masonic heroes. The Honorable Jessie James, Most Worshipful Past Grand Master of New Mexico was elected to a one-year position on the executive council The conference has partnered with the American Red Cross. The Red Cross is in need of facility managers and is prepared to train Prince Hall members at their expense. We will contact the local chapter of the Red Cross for further information. It is an exciting program that will provide opportunities of Prince Hall Masons to be a major part in community assistance. State of the Craft We find today that the demographics of our neighborhoods are changing with the challenges of diversity resulting in lost seats in several areas of our cities and state. As we look around ourselves our living and employment conditions have improved over the years. African-Americans are not longer isolated into certain identifiable neighborhoods. It is now becoming more and more difficult to say for certain this is our neighborhood. In Denver the once proud African-American neighborhood known as the Five Points is no longer the center for the culture. The Cole/Manual schools are no longer known as black schools. Where have they gone?

16

At one time, Centennial Lodge #4 and Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 were located in the heart of all of the African-American cultural activities. The same held true for Pikes Peak Lodge #5 in Colorado Springs the first lodge was on Colorado Avenue in the center of the African-American community in Pueblo the crown jewel was the lodge hall with Ashby Lodge #2 and Rising Sun Lodge #3 attending meetings in the present location of Eureka Lodge #2. However, today we are spread throughout our various communities and the state making the center of our cultural activities more widely held spread throughout the community. Making participation in local government is more essential for all of us. I turn your focus and attention to education. The education of our youth, as well as ourselves, is very critical to us in today world. We must continue to educate ourselves as to economics and the rising cost of doing business today as well as to the future of our off spring. Colleges today are not cheap. It will take up to fifty thousand dollars to educate our children in a College or University. We must stand up to this challenge and support our children's education at the rising cost today. The Colorado Prince Hall Foundation is making progress and making a difference in the Jurisdiction. The initial goal of the Foundation is to provide workshops for educators enabling them to recognize "Students at Risk". Acquitting teachers and administrators with additional tools enabling them to recognize and identify students who are experiencing social and emotional problems and, thereby, allow the teachers to offer some alternative assistance to their students. Help them solve problems they may be experiencing should it be related to alcohol, drugs, dropping out of school, suicide or as in more recent day's firearms to school. We must continue, in my view, to support the public education system in their efforts to educate our children. Let us get off the sidelines and enter the playing field by volunteering in our schools to assist in improving educational opportunities for our youth. We have much to be proud about the time-honored organization of the Prince Hall Athletic Club. They carry the banner of Prince Hall into our community and have represented Prince Hall respectably while competing at the highest levels in their various age groups. Recognizing the accomplishments of the Prince Hall Athletic Club is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of Past Grand Master Bill Moland. We, also, must recognize and support to the Denver sponsored Father and Son Breakfast. It, too, has stood the test of time test and proven to be a program worthy of our consideration for support. Past Grand Master George Gray continues to work tirelessly a year around to insure the success of the program. The program has received corporate sponsorship but needs more financial support. Financial Stability of the Grand Lodge The Grand Lodge is in a stable and profitable financial condition as you will learn from the reports of the Grand Treasurer, Grand Secretary, Grand Auditor and Grand Trustee Chairman the monies that have entrusted in their care is present and accounted for as you will learn from their reports. We have a relief benefit for our membership of four hundred dollars. This benefit has been in place for, too, many years and has long out lived its usefulness to support a widow or orphans in making suitable arrangements to bury the dead. It is time for us to consider in a financially reasonable way to increase the benefit to our brother's family in order to support them in a time of need. We need to also give consideration to a distress worthy brother who may have fallen on difficult times and is in need of financial assistance. If you are satisfied with the present award of four hundred dollars, you need do nothing. If you want this Grand Body to investigate improvements in our benefit program, you must voice your opinion and cause a change in our Code of Law.

17

At present we do not have a plan that would allow us to give financial aid to subordinate lodges or individuals who may become indigent and need financial assistance. Are we to pass the hat each time a Mason is distressed or do we plan to assist these individuals or lodges according to their specific need through a well thought out and contrived financial plan? Grand Master Visitations The Grand Master visited all of the lodges in the jurisdiction as scheduled with the exception of two lodges that had to be rescheduled because of extreme weather conditions. The visits proved to be quite interesting and informative since the lodges have shown improvement in attendance, membership growth and stability but in their ritualistic work as well. We as Masons have a civic duty to become involved in the welfare of the community. We have a duty to become politically active but not to the point of offending a Brother. Worshipful Master Kenneth Cherry has begun to develop a positive image for Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 by attending many Masonic and community functions. There are serious concerns regarding to the practice of making Honorary Past Masters in Rocky Mountain Lodge. Centennial Lodge continues its youth movement and as we all know youth must be served with the good and wise council of the Past Masters. There is a need to practice proper Masonic protocol at public functions and adhere to the Landmarks of Freemasonry in the jurisdiction. The two Lodges in Utah High Marine #12 and Mount Ogden #20 are continuing to be a positive asset to the Utah community and have established a positive relationship with the Grand Lodge of Utah, F&AM. They do have concern regarding their image and positioning in the Grand Lodge. We had the pleasure to attend the Masonic Fraternal Relations Friendship Picnic in September in Salt Lake City, Utah. The hard work of District Deputy Grand Master Ulysses Cooper is coordinating activities with the Utah Grand Lodge and it is paying dividends as peace and harmony prevails. He is, also, an officer and avid member of the Phalxis Society and now submitting entries for the society's magazine. I salute Reverend France Davis, who through the years has become a good friend of this Grand Master and of the Craft. Dr. Davis is a well-respected member of the Salt Lake City and Utah community serving as Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. Official Acts It was in deed a productive year for the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Colorado and Jurisdiction. It seems like only yesterday, when we were asked to participate in the opening ceremonies of Florida Waller K-8 School. It was an honor to have been asked to share the dedication of this fine facility by the family and the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. The AKA's took on the responsibility to financially sponsor the dedication. I salute them for their support of the school. We thank the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Epsilon Nu Omega Chapter, President Deborah Parsons and the Florida Pitt Waller family for their kind and generous invitation to participate in the marvelous event. We were, also, proud to participate in the dedication of the Children's Hospital on the Fitzsimmons Campus. It is hats off to the Honorable Tom Cox, Most Worshipful Past Grand Master of the Colorado Grand Lodge who invited this Grand Lodge to participate in the laying of the cornerstone at Children's Hospital. He, also, invited us to assist in dedicating a cornerstone at the Eastern Star/Masonic Retirement Village in Denver. The Colorado Fraternal Relations Commission has been revived and is presently functioning under the leadership of Past Grand Master William K. Wooden. We did visit all of the subordinate lodges as scheduled. However, we did to reschedule two of the visitations again due to the poor weather conditions. We were unable to attend the funeral of Past Master Robert Davis 18

in Casper, Wyoming again to poor weather conditions. The Grand Master was very well received during the several visitations. I commend the Worshipful Masters for a job well done. We attended the Colorado and Utah Grand Lodges where the hospitality was outstanding and our delegation was well received at both Grand Sessions. We, also, attended the 2006 DeMolay State Conference in Greeley, Colorado. It was a pleasure to attend the Grand Guardian Council in June of this year where Sister Martha McClendon, Electa Chapter #16, Order of the Eastern Star, was honored by being the first AfricanAmerican to have been elected Grand Guardian of the Grand Guardian Council of Colorado, Job's Daughters International on June 16, 2007. She has selected Sickle Cell Anemia as the charity for the Council to support this year. She is seeking financial support for this project from all who can and are willing to support these worthy causes. All donations to this project will certainly be appreciated. Recommendations 1. Increase the relief benefit from four hundred dollars to a determined amount to be recommended by the Relief Committee after careful study and the availability of Relief Funds by establishing the Prince Hall Benevolent Foundation under the 501 c 3 tax statutes for private corporations, in agreement with Edict 36. 2. Through proper management current Student Scholarship Awards from five hundred to one thousand dollars and to incorporate the fund under the non-profit act to encourage donations that would help to increase our awards. 3. Increase the Grand Master's honorarium from one thousand to one thousand five hundred dollars annually. 4. A careful audit is made of current financial investments to insure that the Grand Lodge is receiving the best returns for its investments. 5. Empower the Grand Trustee Board to carefully study and develop a ten-year building plan and report to this body by the 133rd Annual Grand Lodge Session of their findings. 6. Empower the Relief Committee to earmark twenty thousand dollars from the Relief Fund for Masonic members who have become financially destitute causing a financial hardship. Hardships are to be determined on a case by case basis by the Relief Committee. 7. Establish a committee to define specifications for issuing Honorary Past Master Degrees by subordinate lodges. 8. Establish a three year policy to select the site for our annual Grand Lodge setting. 9. Endorse the action of the Conference of Grand Masters to Partner with the Red Cross under the banner of Prince Hall/Red Cross. Conclusion A positive attitude is very important to the success of all of our endeavors in life and more especially to our Masonic fraternity. Attitude is defined as a settled way of thinking or feeling a position of the body indicating a particular mental state. State: The condition of someone or something, a physical condition as regards internal or molecular form or structure. We must not forget our duty to God and participate in our churches of choice and not for the sake of Freemasonry but for all that you vowed to become a Prince Hall Mason. We must remember that relief is for the living and not the dead. Let us be the charitable organization that we pledged to ourselves at the Alter on bended knee and in the presence of Almighty God. Brothers let us not forget the obligation each of has made to each other, our families and ourselves. If we forget our duty to God can we then be a Freemason?

Dear Sisters and Brothers: Greetings: Once more, it is through the mercy of the Grand Patron of the Universe, we here have witnessed the passing of another year. The Lord has been ever gracious in his forgiveness and allowed us to be alive and to enjoy his many blessings. Providence has permitted us to assemble for another Grand Session to review the stewardship of our various elected officers. As Grand Worthy Patron, I am happy to report that not only has Peace and Harmony prevailed between the Grand Lodge and the Grand Chapter and that these two groups are working with each other more than ever. This was proved through the close cooperation and togetherness realized in the accomplishment of the goals and the outstanding success accomplished with the 2007 Conference of Grand Masters and Grand Matrons. The Grand Master has been very gracious in keeping the Grand Patron aware of all planned events which has led to a better liaison. The subordinate Chapters have cooperated in a fine manner, when in- formed of and invited to participate in, in all Masonic events.

22

It has been my privilege and pleasure to serve this Grand Chapter and its Grand Worthy Matrons. I am happy also to have served as liaison officer for these past two years. I did not participate in the King contest this year; however, it is my intent to do so in the future. I do make the following recommendation: That a portion of the funds raised from the King contest be used to finance the registration and lodging of the Grand Chapter for the Grand Worthy Patron at the Grand Chapter Session.

RIGHT WORSHIPFUL DEPUTY GRAND MASTER'S REPORT To: Most Worshipful Grand Master, Hon. Garland A. Osborne; RW Senior Grand Warden, Lionell Cummings; RW Junior Grand Warden, Arturo V. De los Reyes; Elected and Appointed Grand Lodge Officers; Past MW Grand Master; Past Grand Masters; Worshipful Masters and Lodge Delegates; Honored Guest; Visitors and Brethren. My humble thanks are willing surrendered to the Grand Architect for allowing us another opportunity to gather once again, and then to you my Brothers for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your RW Deputy Grand Master. Thank you for continuing to have confidence in me. It has been a welcomed and rewarding challenge. My goal again was to approach my duties to which I was charged in a manner that promoted Brotherly Love, respect, and harmony at every opportunity, and to provide assistance to the MWGM on enhancing the operations of this Grand Body. I was available to every Worshipful Master and attempted to keep them well informed and abreast of all Constitutional requirements. The MW Grand Master and entourage were accompanied on all visitations to the subordinate Lodges and my assistance was provide where needed. Listening to the reports during these visitations assisted in finding administrative process that would be beneficial in the future to enhance our record keeping as our rich history is interwoven in these records. This was a busy year with many changes. We receive quit a bit of visibility when our AF&AM Brothers under the leadership of MWGM Cox extended their hand of fellowship on numerous occasions to include

23

laying a Corner Stone at the Children's Hospital and dedicating a Patio at the Order of the Eastern Star Masonic Home in Denver. We also were the host of the 88th MW Prince Hall Grand Masters' Conference were my desires were fulfilled as both the RW Senior and Junior Grand Wardens were able to attend and only they can tell you how valuable the experience. Our Grand Master also allowed me the opportunity to represent him and our Jurisdiction during Nevada's Annual Session where the Hon. Tyrone C. Freeman extended to me and family every courtesy. The Mid-Year Conference was held in Denver and coordinated by the RW Senior Grand Warden, who did a fantastic job. The Conference was well attended and WE agreed where our Annual Session would be held for 2007, 2008, and 2009 as we set precedence as how to accomplish this. With that, we are working on and advanced agenda that should assist us in future planning and hopefully negotiating better prices. I was unable to fully participate on the Prince Hall Foundation, as their meetings conflicted with my usual avocation. I continue to applaud PGM Sauls for staying steadfast, and heading this committee which is giving us some very good community. Both the Grand Master and I were well informed. It is beneficial to met your peers from various Jurisdictions and have dialogue on various topics and concerns and that is what took place at the MW Grand Masters 88th Conference which was held in our Jurisdiction. My desire was fulfilled as both the RW Senior Grand Warden and Junior Grand Warden were able to attend and only they can tell you what valuable knowledge they gained. Progress is continuing to be made in information technology, but there is still much we can do and learn as this how business is conducted for all enterprises. It was again possible to communicate with all Worshipful Masters and many Grand Lodge Officers via electronic mail (email). It makes getting and sharing information especially Grand Lodge information more efficiently both in time and money. Communication via this media has been instrumental in assisting several of our younger Brothers traveling in other Jurisdictions seeking information and with other Grand Lodges very rapidly. The web site designed by PM Hubbard and monitored by PM Harlan is continuing to improve and expand. My hat goes off to these two dedicated PMs that ensures that this useful tool is available. In closing, I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude again for your trust and confidence. Thank you MW Grand Master Osborne for openly communicating with me and soliciting my thoughts and ideas. Thank you Worshipful Masters for your communications and open arms during the MW Grand Master's visitations. For those Grand Lodge Officers that assisted me in performing the directives of the MW Grand Master; thank you. Past Grand Masters that has offered your words of wisdom and encouragement, they have not fallen on deaf ears and Thank You for all you do. Fraternally Submitted FREDRICK D. BLUE RW Deputy Grand Master

Office of the Right Worshipful Senior Grand Warden's Report

Right Worshipful Senior Grand Warden Report Giving honor to God, the giver of all good and perfect gifts. First allow me to thank this grand body for electing me to the position of RW Senior Grand Warden for the past year. This past year has been rewarding and very informative. I have been afforded many opportunities and given respect from you and other Masonic jurisdictions that I have visited. During the month of December I attended the election of the four local lodges in Denver and helped with the election and installation. During the month of January I installed the officers of the four lodges at the annual Public Installation. I coordinated the Mid-Year Conference held in Denver. The Conference was well attended and all presenters did an outstanding job. Special thanks to Grand Senior Deacon Charlie Flowers for serving as the Master of Ceremonies. PM Ed Moore did an outstanding job with organizing the meal. I accompanied the Grand Master on all of his Lodge Visitations to include High Marine #12 and Mount Ogden #20 in Utah. While in Utah we attended the Grand Lodge Session of the Grand Lodge of Utah, AF&AM. During the month of May I was selected to chair the committee for hospitality for the Grand Masters & Grand Worthy Matrons Conference held in Denver. This event proved to be a success as was evident by the many expressions of appreciation the committee received from visiting Grand Masters and Grand Worthy Matrons. I represented the Colorado Grand Lodge at the Arizona Grand Lodge held in Phoenix, Arizona. My wife Rita and I were treated very well and I received all the respect and honors due the official representative of our Grand Master. I attended the ST. Johns Day Service held at Shiloh Baptist Church on June 24, 2007. The service was attended by the four local lodges and members of the Eastern Stars. I gave remarks from the Grand Lodge and the Most Worshipful Grand Master Garland Osborne. In closing I want to thank the many of you who gave me encouragements when I needed them. Thanks to the Grand Master, Deputy Grand Master RW Junior Grand Warden, RW Grand Secretary, RW Grand Treasurer and RW Grand Lecturer for the many hours we spent together working to insure that our Grand Lodge was working in the right direction during the past year.

Office of the Right Worshipful Junior Grand Warden's Report

TO: The Most Worshipful Grand Master, Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Past Grand Masters, Grand Lodge Officers, Worshipful Masters, Honored Guest, Brethren and Visitors of the 131st Annual Communication of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge F.& A.M., Colorado and its Jurisdictions.

It was a pleasure to perform my duties as the Right Worshipful Junior Grand Warden in accordance with Section 111.21 of our Code of Law to the best of my ability.

Right Worshipful Grand Lecturer Report First, giving thanks to the Grand Architect of the Universe, for his blessing and protection. As I traveled the highways and byways in support of this Most Worshipful Grand Lodge and to the Brethren who gave me this opportunity to serve as your RW Grand Lecturer. The year started off receiving questions and information from the lodges and participating in the elections in December for Eureka Lodge #2, Pikes Peak Lodge #5 and Mountain Post Military Lodge #26. I had the pleasure to travel with the MWGM on his visitations and provided a lecture to the craft except to Utah; most lectures can be found on the Grand Lodge web site. There was a total of eleven lectures provided to the craft which I hope were motivating and inspiring. Inspection of the lodges opening, closing and receiving the MWGM was also performed, results were given to the Worshipful Master's and the Grand Lodge staff. During Mid-Year Conference I gave a presentation on a book called "Good to Great" by Jim Collins; I hope this Grand Body will look at the model discussed in this book as we move Prince Hall Masonry forward in Colorado. At the 2007 Annual Four Corners Conference of Grand Masters and Grand Worthy Matrons held in Las Vegas, Nevada, I had the esteemed honor to provide a lecture on "Mentorship in the Prince Hall Masonic Family" along with the other three jurisdictions. We, the Grand Lecturers from the Four Corners discussed ideas to share information and provide Masonic education across the Four Corner Region. During the months of May & June I had the opportunity to visit all the lodges in the jurisdiction again except for Utah, to observe their use of our code of law, Lester's Look to the East and provide a lecture on Edict No. 50 Watchcare. I am honored to report that the Worshipful Master's and Lodges are doing a fantastic job in performing their duty and promoting Masonry! I would like to thank all the Worshipful Master's for their hospitality during my visitations. Other honorable mentions I participated in during my tenure; Cornerstone Laying at Waller Elementary School, Visited AF & AM Lodge in Ramah, AF & AM Retirement Home Dedication and Collaborative Luncheon with Prince Hall Officers & Colorado AF & AM Officers. In closing I like to give a special thanks to my wife for her patience, to MWGM Garland A. Osborne and RW Deputy Grand Master Fredrick D. Blue for their trust in me. I also would like to thank the Brothers of this Grand Lodge for electing me to this esteemed position. I pray for harmony and peace during our 131st Annual Session. I share this last lecture from the Beehive on tracking our time, I offer you my Masonic Watch. Terence Jackson, RW Grand Lecturer

Your Board of Grand Trustees begs leave to submit the following report: The Grand Trustees met four times during the past Masonic year with a majority of the members present. The Grand Wardens and Convention Coordinator were present for most meetings. The election of officers was held at the meeting in October 2006 by MWGM Garland A. Osborne. MWPGM Torrence L. Neal and MWPGM William K. Wooden were elected Chairman and Secretary respectively. A listing of all vouchers, checks and receipts issued by the Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer will be found in their respective reports. All vouchers issued during this period were signed and verified by the Chairman of the Grand Trustee Board. Most checks were signed by the Chairman. To save time in some instances, it was decided that only two signatures were required on the checks, as long as all vouchers were signed by the Grand Master, Grand Secretary and Chairman of the Board of Trustees. The income from the Conference of Grand Masters Committee was deposited into the General Fund checking account and was disbursed back to them as requested by use of vouchers. Their activity is included in the Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer's reports. In compliance with last year's recommendation the Convention Committee's income was also deposited into the General Fund checking to be expended as needed at this annual session ACCOUNT INFORMATION General Fund: This past year we had a gain of 18.88% on the Van Kampen Investment with Advantage Capital for the year ending 6/30/2007. $97,941.85.

The bulk of our funds are in the Relief and Scholarship accounts and as such are dedicated funds. The MWPH Grand Lodge is responsible for the expenses for this Grand Session. At this time we do not know how much this expense will be. Therefore, we ask your permission to withdraw/transfer funds from whatever account necessary in order to cover this expense. Recommendation: That we start the process of binding our proceedings. The last bound minutes were 1979. Some of the older minutes are somewhat deteriorated. We may have to look at some other process other than paper for maintaining our historical minutes. We wish to thank you for allowing us to serve you for this Masonic year and may the GAOTU bless this august gathering. Fraternally and respectfully submitted, Torrence L. Neal Gr. Trustee (Chairman) Garland A. Osborne, (MWGM) William K. Wooden, Gr. Trustee (Secy.) Fredrick D. Blue, DGM (Gr. Trustee) Raymond H. Black, Sr. (Gr. Trustee) J. Douglas Vaughn Harris, (Gr. Secy.)

On the Question: MWPGM Samuel C. Hunter Jr (#5) questioned why we have not made an effort to change the number of members from an even number to an odd number of members on the Trustee Board. MWGM Garland Osborne requested that one of the Lodges put forth resolutions to make changes to the Constitution to make sure that we have an odd number of members on the Trustee Board. Motion Carried. MWPGM William K. Wooden (#27) rendered a report on the MW Grand Masters' Conference. It was moved by MWPGM William K.

However, Section 111.23.1 states that the Grand Secretary shall receive and accurately account for, and promptly pay or deliver over to the Grand Treasurer all monies and securities of the Grand Lodge from whatever source, taking his receipt for the same; which leads one to believe that the Grand Treasurer should provide the Grand Secretary a receipt for all monies he receives from the Grand Secretary and visa a versa.

To: MW Grand Master, Honorable Garland Osborne, Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Brother Fredrick Blue, Right Worshipful Grand Wardens, Past Grand Masters, Grand Lodge Officers, Delegates and Honored Guests

Greetings, I am honored to present to this grand body the report of my stewardship as Fraternal Relations chairman. I have maintained high standards as set forth by my predecessor, Past Grand Master William K. Wooden. One of my goals was to maintain contact with many of the Grand Lodges with whom we have established relations. Our relationship with the Grand Lodges in the Rocky Mountain Conference is unwavering. Fraternal Masonic Relations Commission (Utah/Colorado) chairmanship has been passed from the Grand Lodge of Colorado's chair Ulysses Cooper to the Grand Lodge of Utah's, Bruce Betts, chair for the ensuing year. The Joint Fraternal Relations Committee continues to hold meetings and I am pleased to report that there are no prominent issues or concerns about which we need to make recommendations. Our annual Friendship Picnic will be held September 15, 2007 at the Masonic Temple in Salt Lake City. I am .appreciative of the support given me by Brother Ben Fulton, Brother Robert Wright, and Brother Lenoris Bush. In response to a letter sent to me from the National Grand Lodge of Greece of the Ancient Free & Accepted Masons, Dimitrios Kontesis, Most worshipful Grand Master, requesting "Mutual Recognition," I mailed a Request for Recognition Application form. I am now awaiting a response from the Grand Lodge of Greece. Fraternally,

THE 131ST GRAND LODGE SESSION COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN CORRESPONDENCE REPORT TO: The Most Worshipful Grand Master, Grand Lodge Officers, Past Most Worshipful Grand Masters, Worshipful Masters, Wardens and Brothers Greetings: First giving honor to Him, who watches over all Prince Hall Masons, the Supreme Architect of the Universe, for He has all power. Again, we come to the close of another year. Regrettably, there are many who are no longer with us. Those of us who remain should be ever grateful and give thanks to the Supreme Architect of the Universe for seeing us through. I take this opportunity to thank the Most Worshipful Grand Master, the Honorable Garland A. Osborne for the appointment to the office of Grand C.C.F.C. throughout his tenure at Most Worshipful Grand Master. It has been a gratifying experience for me. I am thankful and it is my desire to continue serving in any way possible. Communications: The office of C.C.F.C. has extended invitations to 47 jurisdictions to join with us on this our 131st Annual Communication in the city of Colorado Springs, Colorado on August 12th through August 14, 2007 at the Sheraton Hotel. Over one hundred and fifty (150) items of correspondence have been sent to our sister jurisdictions. Notifications and recognitions were in the form of proceedings, fraternal greetings, sympathy cards, invitations, demits and membership information. I have been able to save time and expense in many instances by person to person contact utilizing the telephone. Likewise, we have received notification and recognition in like form from the following jurisdictions. New Mexico, Michigan, Hawaii, Illinois, California, Ohio, Arizona, Florida, Alaska, Montana, Missouri, Indiana, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Ontario Canada, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Nevada, Mississippi, Iowa, Bahamas, Caribbean, and Virginia Official Proceedings: No proceedings were mailed to our sister jurisdictions as per the direction of the Most Worshipful Grand Master.

Once again I would like to thank the Worshipful Deputy Grand Master Frederick Blue for allowing me to travel with him throughout the jurisdiction during the Grand Master's official visitations and also to visits to several Ancient Free and Accepted Masonic lodges when our Most Worshipful Grand Master was invited to speak. This year the Conference of Grand Masters was held in Denver, Colorado. The conference was well attended as there were fifteen (15) C.C.F.C.'s registered, however only seven (7) were in attendance at the conference meeting, as the other eight (8), were obligated to attend a special meeting and could not attend. Dr. Ronald F. Thomas of Delaware, President of the C.C.F.C.'s thanked the Most Worshipful Grand Master for the kindness shown to the C.C.F.C.'s in attendance and a special thanks for the use of his suite as a meeting room for the C.C.F.C.'s. On behalf of the Most Worshipful Grand Master, I welcomed our guests to Denver, Colorado. Subjects of Discussion were: 1. Youth Programs: I reported that we are in the process of forming a Knights of Pythagoras program in Denver; however, most of the lodges in the jurisdiction already have other youth programs which they currently support. 2. Loss of Membership throughout the Jurisdictions: Poor attendance in local lodge meetings a primary contributing factor. 3. Dr. Thomas urged that the secretaries and C.C.F.C.'s in all jurisdictions use electronic mail only to expedite urgent time sensitive correspondence when a rapid response is necessary. Electronic mail, however, should not be considered a replacement for formal correspondence, particularly when time considerations are not critical. 4. The highlight of the conference was the speaker of the evening at the banquet, Reverend, RWPGM Benjamin L. Hooks. The hardships that he endured before being appointed the first Black Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Blacks are yet striving to overcome some of the same problems and circumstances still TODAY. Deaths: Low, in the midst of life and our work, when all seems to be going well, that demon "Death" enters our ranks and steals some of our greatest workers from amongst us. Since we last met, some jurisdictions have lost their Most Worshipful Grand Masters, a large number of Past Grand Masters, and many active Grand Lodge officers and members at large. As I received the notices of sad news, I have replied by sending cards and letters to express our sympathy to the grief stricken families. As of 30 June, thankfully, the only death I have to report, is that of the brother of Past Grand Master Walter Roberts; December 6, 2006. AF&AM--Mrs. Mary Ann HaDad, wife of Past Grand Master Joe HaDad; April 6, 2007. Again; I say thank you and may God, in His infinite wisdom, assist us in our forward progress. Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Correspondence It was moved by MWPGM Sylvester Smith (#5) and second by RW Henry Brown (#27) and Fraternally several that the report be received and made a part of the record. Motion Carried. Page 44 of 121

WORKS AND RETURNS ANNUAL REPORT: W. Samuel R. Perry (#26) submitted the Works and Returns Annual Report.

To: The Most Worshipful Grand Master, Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Right Worshipful Wardens, Officers and Grand body. From: Worshipful Chairman Samuel R. Perry, Works and Returns Subject: Annual Grand Works And Returns Report for 2007 We the members of the Works and Return Committee submit this final report to this the 131st Annual session of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons Colorado and its Jurisdiction. Our last year report showed a total membership in this jurisdiction of Seven Hundred and Twenty-Two members (722); a recap of losses and gains for this Masonic year: Eighty-Three (83) losses and Fifty-One (51) gains for a total membership in this jurisdiction of Seven Hundred and One (701) members. In the Grand Lodge Holding Lodge there were 3 members last year, 14 have affiliated and only one Demit for a total of 16 in the holding Lodge. The members from Lodge #25 are now calculated in the Grand Lodge Holding Lodge numbers. Our thanks to Right Worshipful deputy Grand Master Blue for his role in getting the Lodges to submit their reports, some in a timely fashion and others not so timely, to the Worshipful Masters and Secretaries for their diligence in making their reports as accurate as humanly possible. The stated deadline of 6 July 2007 for the Works and Returns reports to be submitted was not met by some Lodges and this delayed the committee from completing their report until the last minute. It is our recommendation that the reporting form presently in use by this Grand body be adapted as the official Works and Return form and added to our Constitution. It is also our recommendation that a secretary's workshop be held immediately following the elections of the ensuing year's officers. It is also our recommendation that an assessment be placed in the future for those lodges not submitting their reports by stated deadline. Fraternally, Samuel R. Perry (26) Chairman Anthony Parks (26) member Calvin Young (2) member

ANNUAL MASONRY AND STATE OF THE NATION REPORT: W. Paul D. Taylor (#7) provided Masonry and State of the Nation Report.

Masonry and State of the Nation-2007

It has been 223 years since the issuance of the Charter that established African Lodge No. 459, and Prince Hall Masonry continues to be sought by men desirous of learning and living a better way of life. I worked the Registration Desk at The 88th Annual Conference of Grand Masters in Denver in May 07. This endeavor provided a wonderful opportunity to discuss concerns and areas of interest with the elected leaders of most Prince hall Jurisdictions. Some of the information shared could be viewed as the common thread running through most jurisdictions: the unrelenting struggles to maintain current membership levels while working hard to bring-in and educate those that seek admission to our order. Minor-to-major concerns mentioned, depending on specific Jurisdictions, were the lack of advancement opportunity by faithful brethren of long duration and echoed by the new breed of well educated, newly raised masons about the perceived necessity of having to "play" politics. Those that "played" expressed anxiety at the realization that their ascension created an "obligation" to those that claimed to have been the "Kingmaker." These references were directly related to excessive longevity by office holders in jurisdictions where an abundance of talent was available. Some felt that Cronyism in elections and appointments, rather than ability, will be the death knoll of our order unless reigned in by leaders of high character and integrity. We are taught that "a house divided against itself cannot long stand." There is truth in this statement. How did we get to this stage? Was it through evolution? I don't think so. The evolution of a Lodge and Grand Lodge should be traceable back to those officers that "brought us this far." Over the Centuries, it appears that we have Masonicly strayed from the Templates laid out by our Brothers of Yesterday. This statement is evidenced by declining attendance at a brother's Funeral service, Widows support, Lodge meetings, and St. John and Prince Hall Day celebrations. If this report touches a nerve, so be it. The title speaks for itself. Has our status been financially influenced by the unquenchable thirst/need for increased stipends, real estate acquisitions, expense budgets allowances, runaway Annual Communication overhead, cronyism, man's desire to "do something" under my administration.. .rather than "hold the line" and let donations and earnings of the craft dictate the direction and breadth of jurisdictional operations and activities? Perhaps. With the above extensive conversations in mind, I am pleased to report that signing Compacts of Affiliation with our AF & AM Brothers continues, albeit rather slowly in some Southern Jurisdictions. Lawsuits from without and within our Order are extremely minimal and reflect good officer oversight and management. The influence and effect of "non-Prince Hall Lodges on Legitimate Prince Hall Lodges, nationwide, is negligible...if it exists at all. However, they have not gone away as evidenced by the number of brothers healed into Prince Hall Lodges. Page 47 of 121 41

The Prince Hall Masonic Family can be proud that our Grand Master is honored to share the stage with his AF & AM counterpart at many events that I have witnessed. One of our Concordant Body members was recently honored by being elected to the Top State leadership position in Jobs Daughters., a DeMolay initiation class was named for our Grand Master, a large cornerstone at the new Children's Hospital contains this Grand Lodge's name alongside the AF & AM name. Our officers performed admirably during the impressive consecration ceremony. A well attended public Patio dedication ceremony at the Russell Masonic and Eastern Star Home in Denver brought out many Prince Hall and OES family members. The repast that followed was outstanding. It is important to note that age 55 and older members of our order are welcome to reside at this beautiful facility. In summary, Prince Hall Masonry is alive and well in Colorado and its Jurisdiction, and based on personal interviews with Grand Masters of many Jurisdictions, it is safe to state that Prince Hall Masonry is well throughout the Nation. Fraternally submitted,

ANNUAL YOUTH REPORT: MOST WORSHIPFUL PRINCE HALL GRAND LODGE F&AM COLORADO & JURISDICTION OFFICE OF THE GRAND DIRECTOR OF YOUTH July 10th 2007 Most Worshipful Grand Master, Grand Officers, Distinguished Guests, Brothers, Greetings. My report today is given with a great deal of sadness. Usually I come before you with a glowing report of youth about the jurisdiction, not so today. Each year I come to Grand session and run down Worshipful Masters to get their youth reports simply because they are never submitted to me as they should be. As a result I'm always late with my report because I'm putting together my report during session. I warned everyone last year that I would no longer do that. Today's results show the consequences of that promise. As of Friday August 10th, I had received Youth reports from #1, #2, #6, #7, and #27. Lodges that have youth programs but did not submit reports are, #4, #5, #12, #20, and one of the largest programs #26. As a result, matching monies will only be divided between the five Lodges that submitted reports. Rocky Mountain, and Mount Evans support the Denver program that runs programs in Football and basketball. The football program as usual sent all four teams to the playoffs and our Peewees and intermediates lost in the semi-finals. Our bantam and senior teams both went to the Super Bowl but unfortunately, lost. Our Basketball program was lost when the roof of the gymnasium partially collapsed and the gym was flooded, ruining the floor. 1. Eureka as usual supported the Easter programs put on by the Black Churches, donated to a local scholarship program. Supported the local Juneteenth activities, and supported Boys State. Total contribution $650.00. 2. Western Star sponsored American Legion Baseball, Flag Football. They donated money, food, and provided security, escorted children, handicapped, and elderly visiting the displays of Black inventions during Black History Month. In total they contributed $500.00 for these events. 3. Chappie James supported the Colorado Ravens organization in both Football and Basketball programs.

Respectfully submitted, Bill Moland, PGM. Grand Director

TO: The Most Worshipful Grand Master, Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Right Worshipful Wardens, Officers, and Grand Body Subject: 2007 Prince Hall Grand Lodge Golf Outing Giving Honor to The Great Architect Of The Universe, 1. This year's golf outing was held on Sunday, 12 Aug, at the Valley Hi Golf Course, 610 South Chelton, Colorado Springs, CO. The Grand Lodge Committee paid the required $100 deposit to hold the event. There were sixteen (16) golfers participating, of which twelve (12) were Master Masons, two (2) were Eastern Stars, and two (2) guests. The teams were Team 1- PM Samuel R. Perry/Bro Calvin Thornton/Sis Roxanne Garlington/Sis Viola Garlington Team 2- PM Charlie Flowers/PM Reuben Dallas/PM Hank Brown Team 3- WM James Cates/Bro Jason Scott/Bro Shane Patty/Mr Bob Fowler Team 4- PM Odie Young/PM Elvin Underwood/PM Robinson/Bro Greg Thompson/Mr Otis Forrest Considering the heavy rainfall on the previous evening, the course was in great shape. Kudos to the Valley Hi staff! All of the participants expressed sincere joy in fellowshipping and golfing, especially Team 4, which recorded a six under par for the best score of the day. Congratulations Team 4!! 2. Although there wasn't a tournament, we were able to procure five (5) tee times at which to golf. The tournament was cancelled due to the minimum number of golfers and fees not being met by the deadline. In order to hold a tournament, there must a minimum of twenty (20) players registered and paid for at least nine days prior to the event. Since the Committee had not received the minimum number by the 3 August, the event was cancelled. At that time, we received the tee times from the golf course. If not, the golf course would have opened the day and times to the public. 3. The Committee recommends that: For future golf tournaments, the deadline set by the Committee has to be adhered to. Funds need to be received and paid to the golf course prior to the desired date, in order to hold that date and time. As it is not a fundraiser, but a fellowship outing, the event should be open to the public, but only after the Masonic family has had sufficient time to register first. If a recommendation to hold the Lodge of Sorrow on Sunday morning is approved, the golf outing should be held on Saturday or Sunday afternoon, or if participation is waning, then cancelled completely.

4. The Committee requests the following participants be reimbursed $35 each for a total of $280: Roxanne Garlington, Viola Garlington, Charlie Flowers, Samuel R. Perry, Howard Fleming, Lloyd Gray, Greg Thompson, and Odie Young. The above mentioned golfers paid the required $75 golf registration fee for the tournament by the deadline. Since the tournament was cancelled, the charge for green fees and cart was $40. The Committee paid $220 (plus $100 deposit) to cover their green fee and cart. All other participants paid their green fee and cart upon arrival. 5. In closing, the Committee would like to thank PM Terrence Jackson, PM Samuel R. Perry, and WM James M. Cates for their guidance and assistance.

Colfax Ave. in Denver, Colorado where we served over 75 dinners to the homeless and needy families. In December 2006, I was elected the Worshipful Master of Rocky Mountain Lodge #1. I visited Centennial #4, Mount Evens #7, and Daniel Chappie James #27 lodges for their election of officers during the month of December. I teamed with members of Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 and Lone Star #1 to provide 50 Christmas gifts to children at the George Washington Day Care Center located in Denver, Colorado. I attended the Lone Star #1 annual Christmas Party. Attended the Syrian Court #49 annual New Eve Party. In January in Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Birthday, I marched with my lodge, members from Lodge #4 and with members from Lone Star No.1 in the annual MLK Parade. I supported the Grand Master's request to see a STRONG Prince Hall Presence at the MLK Jr. African American Heritage Rodeo of Champions by encouraging my craft to come out and support this event. I TRAVELED with the Grandmaster for Lodge visitations to Mount Evans #7, Centennial #4, Daniel Chappie James #27, and Pikes Peak #26. I attended the Golden Circle luncheon at the Radisson Hotel. I participated in the Joint Installation at Daniel Chappie Jame Lodge #27. In February I invited sisters from Lone Star #1 to dinner for the Grand Master Visitation at Rocky Mountain Lodge #1. As Worshipful Master of Rocky Mountain Lodge #1, I hosted the Mid Winter Conference at our Lodge Hall. Visited AF & AM Lodge #5. I successfully encouraged and motivated members from my Lodge to come out to the Grand Masters visitation with No.7 to obtain the "Moving Ashlar" in which we where able keep for 2 months following the meeting In March I attended the Syrian Temple No. 49 and Syrian Court No. 40, 19th annual Commemoration Breakfast.

Attended the Worthy Matron Annual Visitation hosted by Evergreen #3 in Denver, CO. Attended the annual Widows and Orphans Celebration in Denver. In July attended the Annual Masonic Colorado Springs Celebration in Fountain, CO. Attended the annual Administrative Council celebration in Denver, CO. My leadership focus for this year for my Lodge has been `getting back to the basics". I wanted my craft to take pride in our ritualistic work. Therefore, I requested my officers to become proficient in their floor work. I have placed this requirement on myself as well have demonstrated my proficiency to my craft by "Opening and Closing the Lodge and Raising 4 Brothers without using the "Look to the East" ritualistic book. I have also discontinued "Dress Down Night"; I believe there is a certain attitude people have when they are dressed accordingly. I have increased attendance at the lodge by bringing back lectures given by Past Masters. As the Worshipful Master of Rocky Mountain Lodge #1, we conducted degree work for the Worshipful Master of Daniel Chappie James Lodge # by passing 2 brothers from E.A. to F.C. and both degree work was done without using the ritualistic book. I presented certificates of appreciation to brothers who have gone outside of their normal duties as an officer of the Lodge. I also presented certificates of appreciation to the Junior Warden Committee for the Widow and Orphans Celebration. My community focus for this year has been the youth. Therefore, my main goal has been to elevate kids to higher level. Based on this goal, I have worked closely with the Urban League of Denver Metropolitan School to help fundraise for children in their Hope On-line School. I also have worked closely with the President of NAACP, John Marshall of Aurora to start the NAACP Youth Committee, which I recruited 20 young teenagers to be part of that program. As Worshipful Master of Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 our lodge has donated money to at risk youth in the Denver community. In closing Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 had zero drops in membership. We increased our membership by 10, which put our membership at 104 members. As the Worshipful Master I have followed the Grand Lodge Ethics, Constitution, and Bylaws.

One of the major activities in progress is called the Adopt a Chair Program wherein members are donating the cost of a chair to replace all of the seating in the lodge hall.

PIKES PEAK LODGE NO. 5 F. &A.M. 513 N. PROSPECT ST. COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO 80903 CHARTERED OCTOBER 5, 1878

Fraternal Greetings: The year for Pikes Peak Lodge #5 has been bountiful and fruitful. Pikes Peak Lodge #5 is on a prosperous road and the mechanism for success is truly in place. For starters, to improve communication and put PPL #5 back on the map, WM Cates with the support of the Craft, initiated the creation of a website www.ppl5.org and a quarterly newsletter, The Traveling Light to keep the craft and community informed of Lodge functions. As a Lodge, we began the year by giving Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to needy families in the Colorado Springs Community. Always thinking of our Widows, monetary Love Tokens were also sent to the widows for Christmas to remind them that they are forever on our minds and in our hearts. We also had a breakfast in their honor that included the Sisters of Magnolia Chapter #14. Our Senior Warden, Robert Jackson; truly a pillar of strength continues to visit and report the sick and distressed. Always thinking of our Widows, monetary Love Tokens were also sent to the widows for Christmas to remind them that they are forever on our minds and in our hearts. This year, the brothers of Pikes Peak Lodge #5 also had the pleasure of celebrating St. John the Evangelist Day with the congregation of People's Community and the other houses of the Colorado Springs Masonic Family. Our first quarter church visitation with Trinity Baptist Church was also a pleasant experience. WM Cates and the brothers of PPL #5 were able to witness several Baptisms and enjoy an inspirational Women's Day Celebration. Pikes Peak Lodge #5 adopted a youth basketball team, the PPL #5 Bulls and supported them throughout the year with uniforms and as fans. Worshipful Master Cates plays a big part with the team as their coach, providing them with the proper guidance and instruction. The Brothers of Pikes Peak Lodge #5 are continuously supporting our Masonic family in the Colorado Springs area. We visited our Sisters of Magnolia Chapter #14 O.E.S. in celebration of Queen Esther Day. WM Cates and Secretary Benny Windom also made a special visit with the Sisters to one of their regular scheduled meetings to show support and strengthen the bond between the brothers and sisters. We also visit our Brother Lodge, Mountain Post Military Lodge #26 regularly and assist them in any way possible. A joint study club under the leadership of Senior Deacon Gregory Gouty and Past Master Thomas Powell has proven to be beneficial and proof of Brotherly Love between the Brothers of PPL #5 and those of MPML #26. During Black History month, time was volunteered to several churches in the Colorado Springs area, presenting Black History Trivia Games to their youth programs, inspiring the most important people in our society at the most important time in their lives. The craft of PPL #5 was influenced and motivated to also support the community, evident by their sponsoring of the PPL#5 Bulls, a youth basketball team that they have provided uniforms, tournament fees and most of all fan support from positive role models.

Pikes Peak Lodge #5 has also had several fund raisers this year to include a fish fry, bar-b-que, happy hour, gumbo sale and a car wash. These fund raisers proved to be successful not only for the lodge, but also helped to establish PPL #5 back into the community amongst family and friends. Since the beginning of the Masonic Year, Pikes Peak Lodge #5 has Initiated and Passed fourteen Brothers. Eight Brothers have been Raised to the Sublime Degree of a Master Mason, with ten more due to be raised by August first. In closing, Pikes Peak Lodge #5 has truly been blessed this year. We have had the opportunity to grow physically and spiritually together as a Lodge. I thank God for my health and for giving me the strength and wisdom to lead PPL #5. The key to us continuing to be successful and strengthening our foundation is to stay focused and most importantly work together as one. Respectively Submitted, Attested James M. Cates James M.

Davis, SENIOR WARDEN: Calvin Thornton, JUNIOR WARDEN: Jermaine Hardiman, SECRETARY: Warren Pete Hall, TREASURER: PM Van Harvey. Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master Fredrick Blue installed all officers. I would like to thank Most Worshipful Grand Master Osborne and the Grand Lodge staff for supporting us through out the year. I would also like to thank all of the Eastern Stars of Magnolia Chapter #14 for their support as well, without our sisters a number of our task drawn on our trestle board would not have been accomplished. As Worshipful Master I am pleased and proud of a number of things accomplished By Mountain Post Military Lodge #26 starting with our Senior Citizens Christmas Party and Children's Christmas Party, but the one thing that stands out the most is the attendance of every meeting by the craft. This was especially evident during the official Visitation of the Grand Master and his entourage on 10 February 2007 to MPML#26. This was a glorious event in that we had a number of members from MPML#26 present and in all over 80 brothers from around the Jurisdiction attended. We also continue to have strong showings at our many church visitations throughout the year St. John's day being the largest turnout yet with over 20 brothers in attendance and at least 15 sisters from Magnolia Chapter #14 O.E.S. Our widows continue to have our unwavering support in that we are in constant communication with them, inviting them to all of our public events as well as staying in tuned to there needs, if there should be any. Our students in the community are supported through our scholarship program, which gives the recipient $500.00 annually. This year's recipient was the Grand Daughter of PM Powell. The 7th Annual Masonic Family Outing was recently held, and keeping with the traditions of MPML#26 it was a success with over 300 people from around the jurisdiction in attendance. We are grateful for the relationship we have with other lodges in the Jurisdiction and hope and pray this will continue in the years to come. Page 77 of 121
