Can’t tell the players from the coaches without a program?

November 5, 2011

Below is the program as written by a member of Hillsborough Lodge No. 25 at the close of felon Foster’s fraudulent year in the East.  Sometimes a blast from the past is quite a kick in the pants, no? 

Enjoy.

JIMMY:

I wanted to take this opportunity to THANK YOU and your Officers for Working so hard this last year !  FIRST OF ALL,  a big THANKS for taking such good care of the Lodge Endowment.  The first week of January 2008 I advised you to SELL ALL THE EQUITIES in the portfolio… at that time the Endowment had in excess of $ 475,000.  Displaying your extraordinary wisdom you found advisors who helpedyou mitigate the portfolio of more than 20% of it’s assets ($ 388,000 and dropping since last report of 01/08/09)  … this is certainly a record !!

SECONDLY, another THANK YOU is in order for maintaining Excellent Cash Flow by keeping all the rental units of Lodge Property occupied… with the   evacuation of  Bro. Jeff Willis the space formerly rented has now stood emptyfor  13 months… a mere $ 26,661 of rental payments… AND Mr. Bauman also gone for  three months now creates a deficiency of $ 6,471.  That’s also certainly another record … a depletion of $ 33,132.

 LASTLY there is the matter of removing my name from the Lodge Mailing List … up until March 2008 I received trestleboard and annual dues cards… since that time I have of course continued to receive ALL Scottish Rite & Shriner correspondenceson a regular basis AND my above referenced address’ and telephone numbers remain UNCHANGED since at least August 2007  

Credit must also be given to your officers as well :

 MILES HARTNETT :  Kudos for doing such a good job as Head of the Investment Committee this last year … your results were STUNNING to say the least

JAMES BUSTIN :  It is largely through your sage advice and influence that the directionof the Lodge Endowment and the Renting of the Properties turned outas it has… without your influence things may well have gone along as before.

STEVE JACOBSON:  Keeping the bills paid with the monies on hand… Hopefully in your position as District Deputy Grand Master next year they too will have an Endowment into which to dip to pay their routine bills.  WILLIE JONES:  The job of keeping track of Lodge Members is one of the Secretary’s jobs … mailing the Trestleboard and Dues cards among other things.   Clearly you are doing a great job as well …

There are other incredible achievements we could discuss but that really is enough for now…

 IN SUMMARY :  WHAT A JOB ALL OF YOU HAVE DONE !!   YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE REST OF US LODGE MEMBERS THINK OF YOU !!!

 Fraternally,
