It is with deep sadness that Holbrook Lodge announces the passing to the Celestial Lodge of one of its long time members. WB Gene Walters, Past Master and Past Secretary passed to the Celestial Lodge, not made with human hands yesterday, Saturday September 29th. He was surrounded by family and friends at his home in Forest Grove.

WB Gene was born on January 27, 1941. He was initiated a Entered Apprentice Mason on June 12, 1979, passed to the degree of Fellowcraft on October 9, 1979 and raised a Master Mason in Progressive Lodge on January 29, 1980.

He transferred his membership in the merger of Progressive Lodge with Holbrook Lodge in November of 1997. He served as Worshipful Master in Holbrook Lodge in 1987, and also served as Secretary for a time after that.
Worshipful Brother Gene operated Genes Barber Shop in Forest Grove for a long number of years, retiring about 4 years ago. You could always get a good conversation in Brother Genes barber chair.

I was privileged to have a couple of phone conversations with Brother Gene this past week. He knew his time was short and he shared some good stories of Holbrook and Progressive Lodge with me, and related some of the things the Brothers shared over the years, and how he valued his friendship with my father, WB Donald Wiley.

I am truly honored that I was able to have these conversations with him. This is what Masonry is all about.
A memorial service is being planned and the family will announce those details shortly.

WB Gene will be honored with an altar draping and moment of silence during Holbrook Lodge’s stated communication on Tuesday night, October 2, 2018. Details of the memorial service will be announced as soon as we know them.

Greetings Brothers:

I trust that everyone is staying cool and comfortable in our current heat wave.

Our next stated communication is next Tuesday August 7, There will be a short Officers meeting at 5:45pm and Pizza at 6:15 pm. Meeting to follow at 7:30 pm.

Come and join us for a pizza dinner and good conversation before the meeting.

As you are aware there will be a vote on an amendment to add a new assessment.

This will replace the current assessment that will expire in December of this year.

It is important that everyone attend to discuss this matter prior to a final vote.

I know all the members are concerned about the financial stability of Holbrook Lodge

and as members it is our responsibility to be a part of the solution so come with your ideas.

In addition we have a number of other plans and ideas to discuss for the future so let us come together and work as a team moving forward as we should.

Also be thinking about a Sat. or Sunday in September that we can get together to do a second road clean up at the Round- About and at the Triangle.

See everyone Tuesday Night. Dress code is casual it is going to be warm


W B Larry White, Master
