MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Brother Steven Benedict was born and raised in the Denver area. He joined Masonry because his father and uncle were/are Masons. While he didn’t initially plan on following in their footsteps, when his friends Austin Harris and Ryan joined Weston Lodge, that all changed. He came to poker, met other Masons, and knew it was the right place for him. His experience has been great, and he loves all the new brothers he has met since joining. He’s proud to be a Mason and touched that the brothers will always be there for him!

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Greetings Brethren,

As we prepare for our upcoming stated meeting, I extend my warmest congratulations once again to our newly initiated Entered Apprentices and my appreciation to the officers of Nevada Lodge No. 4 for sharing their work with us. I look forward to witnessing your continued journey in Freemasonry!

At our 1st Stated Communication, we will hear several EA proficiencies and then have our Masonic Discussion. For that debate, please consider this question: Is it the ritual or the fraternal aspects of Masonry that hold greater importance for you? I encourage all brethren to come prepared to share their perspectives, insights, and experiences on this matter!

June holds special significance for our Senior Warden, as he takes on multiple responsibilities within our lodge. Not only will he be showcasing his culinary skills by preparing dinner for us at the second stated meeting, but he will also be leading the officer meeting, guiding our practice session, and sitting in the East during the 2nd Stated Communication in June. That will be a great meeting as he will be orchestrating a memorable Fellowcraft degree ceremony that evening. Brethren, let us extend our full support and gratitude to our Senior Warden as he takes on these crucial roles with dedication and enthusiasm.

I invite our Senior Warden to share a brief message with us:
Tom: I want to congratulate and welcome our newest entered apprentices: Bruce Beardsley and Zach Booker. Looking forward to having them in lodge and being a part of their progression.
I am honored to be able to sit in the East for the 2nd communication of the month. Hope everyone is doing well and I am excited to see everyone in lodge. Please have a great summer and stay safe while we are dark.
Fraternally,
Tom Hearn, Senior Warden

Thank you, brethren, for your attention and support. Let us continue to uphold the principles of our Craft and strengthen the bonds of brotherhood that unite us all.

Fraternally your Worshipful Master,
Josh Levin

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Brother Daxx Vedrin is a newly raised Master Mason, as of April 27th. He’s grateful to have completed this part of the journey and he’s excited for what’s to come. Daxx is the owner of a sports medicine and acupuncture clinic, named Point Zero, located right next to the Ball Arena in Denver. Before building his clinic here over the last 7 years, he was raised in Ohio and Florida, but spent all of his 20’s in Honolulu, Hawaii. There, he developed his knowledge and experience in medicine while adventuring and surfing his way around the island. He now spends his time practicing jujitsu, golfing, fly fishing, hunting, and hiking. He’s been with his lovely wife, Lindsay, for 19 years, and is a father to 2.5 year old daughter, Avi.

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Brothers,

Welcome to May! I want to start off by offering my congratulations to Brother Daxx Vedrin for being raised to the degree of a Master Mason and offer my many thanks to the Officers and Brothers who participated in the degree and attended to show their support. The Chili cook-off was a great success and a lot of fun!

As we near the summer, I am amazed by how quickly this Masonic year is flying by! Many of you have expressed interest in putting on and/or participating in various events, dinners, outings, etc., and it warms my heart. With that said, I must encourage you all to take the next step. It takes a lot of planning, perseverance, and tenacity to make one of these events happen and no one is going to do it for you. Get something on the calendar, send out invitations, create a planning committee, and just start! I promise, if you do, you will have the full support of your brothers. This is your Lodge; make it what you want it to be!

Lastly, in preparation for our Masonic Discussion, I want to describe an organization to you. This organization has shared beliefs in understanding existence, the divine, and life’s purpose. It has rituals for marking important events and it believes in sacred texts. This organization has guiding principles for morality, is engaged in helping the community, and emphasizes the importance fellowship. The organization has leaders, it uses symbols to convey deeper messaging, and believes in the afterlife. This organization meets in a sacred space and has formal teachings that define its core beliefs. I am of course describing Freemasonry. However, I am also describing most major religions in the world. So, for our Masonic Discussion in May, we will be debating the answer to this question: Is Freemasonry a religion?

Fraternally, Josh Levin, Worshipful Master

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Dear Brothers of Weston Lodge,

As we reflect on our journey thus far, I'm filled with gratitude and pride for the remarkable first quarter we've shared together as a Lodge. Already this year, we have conducted ritual on the Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft, and Master Mason Degrees and I thank all of you who have attended and participated in these events! Our joint Table Lodge with Nevada No. 4 was a resounding success, and we eagerly anticipate another gathering in the Fall to deepen our fraternal connections – stay tuned for details!

Continuing our successful Masonic Discussions at the 1st stated communications, this month we will be debating the merits and value of leveraging a Chamber of Reflection as part of the ritual work in a Lodge. If you are unfamiliar with the concept, this article and this Podcast explain it nicely and are well worth a read/listen! Please come ready to discuss your opinion to the question: Should a Chamber of Reflection be part of the initiatic experience in Freemasonry?

I am looking forward to a great second quarter filled with ritual work, debating and sharing ideas, education, and brotherly love. I hope each of you are having even a fraction as much fun as I am having from the East! I appreciate your continued support and here’s to Higher Thoughts, Nobler Deeds, and Greater Achievements!

Fraternally, Josh Levin, Worshipful Master
Weston Lodge No. 22

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Israel “Izzy” Corbo is a first-generation Cuban-American born and raised in Southern Florida. I have been a registered nurse for over thirty years with the majority of my experience in pediatric emergency care. I have been married to Andrea for almost 27 years and we have two grown children (Jacob-21 y/o & Natalia-26 y/o). We have lived in Colorado for the past 13+ years and have never looked back at going back to Florida! I am not aware of any family members who were involved in Free Masonry, but I have had an interest in becoming a Mason since seeing the Shriners at a parade as a child. I am very lucky to have found such an active Lodge with Weston #22 and I hope to grow and become more involved for many years to come!

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Dear Brothers of Weston Lodge;

I hope this message finds you well and full of Masonic zeal. We have much to celebrate and anticipate in the coming weeks.

First and foremost, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to Brother Miguel Garcia on his advancement to the Fellowcraft degree. Your dedication and commitment to the craft are truly commendable. I also want to express my gratitude to all the line officers for their unwavering support and participation. A special thank you goes to WB Cisco and WB Scott for delivering fantastic lectures.

As we look ahead, mark your calendars for our upcoming Joint Table Lodge with Nevada 4 on March 16th at 6pm. This promises to be a fantastic evening of fun and fellowship to include an Irish theme, dinner, and drinks. All Masons are welcome to join us for this special event, donations accepted but not required. Please remember to RSVP and sign up to help with setup, cleanup, or to deliver a short presentation.

Lastly, I invite you to join with us as we continue our Masonic Discussion series. The past two months have brought some wonderful conversations and points of view to light. This month, let us ponder and debate the merits of experiencing the degrees in Freemasonry in a group setting versus as individuals. Your thoughts and insights are invaluable as we explore this topic together!

May we all continue to strive for Higher Thoughts, Nobler Deeds, and Greater Achievements

Fraternally yours,
Josh Levin Worshipful Master

Miguel Garcia was initiated as an EA in November of 2023. Bro. Miguel was born in TX, but raised in Santa Barbara County, CA. He is a Principal Engineer with Spectrum Communications working in IT, he is married, has 5 children, and 2 grandchildren. So far, his favorite part of Masonry is the challenge it offers as he progresses through the degrees and the comradery!

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Brothers;

I hope this message finds you well, embraced by the spirit of brotherly love that defines our fraternity.

I want to remind you of our upcoming Widows and Past Master Luncheon on February 3rd at 12pm. It's a cherished tradition where we honor the widows of our departed brethren and express gratitude to our esteemed Past Masters. Please RSVP and sign up to help using the links provided. Your participation and support are appreciated.

Congratulations to our three new Entered Apprentices initiated at our last meeting. Their journey into Freemasonry marks the beginning of a profound experience. I extend heartfelt congratulations to each of them and sincere appreciation to all officers for their dedication in delivering a memorable degree.

Regarding our Masonic Discussion, I'd like to explore a hypothetical scenario with you. As a Lodge, one of our key responsibilities is to make new Masons. In today's digital age, advertising our presence on social media platforms like Facebook could potentially reach a wider audience of men who share interests in self-improvement and community service. However, the question arises: Do you believe such an initiative would help or harm a Lodge? I invite you to share your thoughts and perspectives on this matter.

As we approach our first stated meeting in February, I encourage each of you to attend and participate in our Masonic Discussion. It's an opportunity for us to engage in meaningful dialogue, share insights, and strengthen our bonds of brotherhood. Let us come together with open hearts and minds, embodying the principles of Freemasonry in our discussions and interactions.

Fraternally,
Josh Levin - Your Worshipful Master

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

Moving forward, beginning in February, we will be taking some time to highlight various members of our Lodge. They may be members who are staples at every event, newer Masons, or long time Masons who we haven’t seen in a while. Stay tuned!

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Dear Brothers of Weston Lodge,
I trust this message finds each of you in good health and high spirits as we embark on a new Masonic year. As your Worshipful Master, I am honored to share my aspirations and plans for the coming months.

In the spirit of transparency and shared vision, I'm thrilled to present our 2024 Strategic Plan. While I recognize the dynamic nature of our journey and the likelihood of adjustments along the way, having a plan is crucial. I encourage each Brother to take a moment to read through it. Your insights and perspectives are invaluable as we collectively shape the path ahead.

Our theme, "Higher Thoughts, Nobler Deeds, Greater Achievements," encapsulates the essence of our shared endeavor. It's not just a collection of words but a beacon guiding our actions and interactions throughout the year. Together, let's explore the depth and richness these ideals offer to our Lodge and community.

Mark your calendars for our first Masonic Discussion at the January Stated Meeting. This promises to be more than a lecture; it's an invitation to engage in meaningful discourse. We'll start with topics that get us all comfortable with the process and progressively delve into the heart of Masonry. Your participation will enrich our collective understanding and strengthen our fraternal bonds. Please be there and participate, your thoughts and opinions are important!

As I step into the East, I want to express my deep gratitude for the trust you have placed in me. It's an honor to serve as you as Worshipful Master, and I am excited about the journey ahead. Together, let us continue to build on the rich legacy of Weston Lodge No. 22, creating memories, fostering brotherhood, and making a positive impact in our community.

May this Masonic year be marked by Higher Thoughts, Nobler Deeds, and Greater Achievements for each and every one of us!

Fraternally,
Your Worshipful Master – Josh Levin

MASTER'S MESSAGE

Dear Brothers of Weston Lodge,

As I stand before you for the final time as your Worshipful Master, I am filled with a profound sense of honor and gratitude. Serving you all this past year has been a monumental experience—one that will remain etched in my heart for a lifetime.

Becoming a Mason, my initial goal was not to ascend to the role of Worshipful Master. However, when the opportunity arose as a young Mason to contribute to our Lodge's growth and development, I eagerly embraced the chance. These years in line have taught me a valuable lesson: one doesn't need a title to make a meaningful impact. As I step down, I urge each of you to engage in some self-reflection. Consider how you can contribute to the continued prosperity of Weston. Whether it's lending a hand in event preparations, extending a warm welcome to new prospects, joining a committee, or conducting in-home investigations— every effort, big or small, enriches both you and our beloved fraternity. In the timeless words, "You get out of it what you put into it."

This year, with the collective effort of our dedicated brothers, Weston Lodge achieved remarkable feats. From fulfilling the final wishes of a Past Master to attend one last lodge meeting, performing degree work in the dark period to raise a Master Mason before his grandfather's last breath, to laying a cornerstone that will endure for years to come—these accomplishments are a testament to our shared commitment. Every brother should take pride in the fact that we conducted degree work in every month of the year, a feat I would confidently wager no other lodge in the state achieved. Another Honor Lodge Year is a testament to our collective dedication.

As I transition from the role of Worshipful Master, I want to assure you that I will not fade away. I am here for each of you, ready to offer my assistance and continue to guide the Lodge from the sidelines. And, of course, to crack a few jokes and enjoy the new master's friendly shushing!

Fraternally,
Michael Cardoza
Worshipful Master
