SPECIAL MONETARY APPEAL

 

To all the members of:

Jackson Lodge No. 17, F. & A.M.

Jackson Chapter No. 3, R.A.M.

Jackson Commandery No. 9, K.T.

Jackson York Rite College No. 3

We are in the midst of a massive project of the Temple in Michigan Center. We are having to:

  • Clean the entire Temple and replace the furnaces. Install NEW rooftop heating and air conditioning units with new air ducts.
  • Throw away a lot of items that are of little use to us anymore.
  •  New Hanging Sign out front and in the very near future a new Masonic/York Rite/Eastern Star lighted sign on the building.


We will end up with a more efficient and cleaner Temple that we all can be proud of.

 

COSTLY - YES BUT NECESSARY

 

To the tune of approximately $80,000.00

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

 

PLEASE, contribute as liberally as you can
without material injury to yourself or family!


Thank you for your support!

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.
