Greetings! ,
  

Special Appeal From

Masonic Temple Association 

You are probably aware that we received 300 chairs, 16 round 48" tables and will soon have 36 - 8' and 4 - 6' tables for the dining hall. All but the 8' and 6' tables are here and have been unpacked.
 
We are trying to sell the old tables and chairs and have a couple groups interested. We hope they will step forward and purchase all the old items. As soon as that happens we will put the new chairs and tables into use.
 
We (Jackson 17) took more than $6,000.00 out of a special fund that was donated to us by a brother who included us in his will. (Have you included us in your will?)
 
We would like to put that money back, so we can have it at another point in time. Thus we are making a special appeal to all of the bodies to HELP US OUT.
 
We know that some of the bodies have donated and also some individuals, but we still have work to do, so please try your best to help the Temple.
 
Make your check payable to Jackson Lodge No. 17 and mail it to:
Jackson Lodge #17 MTA Fund, P.O. Box 1309, Jackson, MI   49204-1309
 
Thank you so much for all you do.
 
Fraternally,

Special Note To The Brethren

 Member's of all Jackson-Coolidge Masonic Bodies
 
We are in need of your email address for transmitting the electronic version of the Jackson/Coolidge MTA Trestleboard on a monthly basis. It is becoming more expensive to produce the Trestleboard due to rising postal rates and the cost to make the printed copies. (We usually print about 300 copies). If you would still like to receive it by mail that is fine too.
Just let us know your preference.
