help and support and called upon the Worshipful Master, John Schaefer, to

    PRELIMINARY REPORT OF CREDENTIALS COMMITTEE
   Brother Scott Graske, Masonic Center Administrator, on behalf of the Creden-
tials Committee, reported to the Grand Lodge that out of a total of 196 chartered
lodges, 165 have been registered. A quorum of lodges is present. A constitutional
number of the Grand Lodge officers are present and the Grand Lodge is in order to
proceed with any business that may come before it.

          UNFINISHED BUSINESS COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  At the 159th Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge, held on June 9th and
10th, 2003, twelve new resolutions were presented and two laid-over from 2002.

   Six resolutions were adopted, four were defeated, one was laid-over, two were
disallowed and not acted upon and 1 was designated as out-of-order. Resolution No.
7-2003, to enhance the meaning of the Chaplain’s prayer was laid-over for debate
and vote at the 2004 Grand Lodge Communication.

  After a thorough review of the 2003 proceedings, the Unfinished Business
Committee concludes that there is no other unfinished business from the 2003
Annual Communication.

                                                            Respectfully submitted,

                                               James H. Olson, P.G.M., Chairman
                                                 James M. Hays, Grand Treasurer
                                             Bruce S. Sim, P.G.M. Grand Secretary

Report accepted.

              APPROVAL OF THE 2003 PROCEEDINGS
  Grand Secretary Bruce S. Sim moved that the 2003 Proceedings be approved as
printed and distributed. The motion was seconded and passed.

                 RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin

   There were 11 resolutions received by Grand Lodge prior to the submission
deadline and forwarded to the Resolutions Committee. One resolution was returned
to the sender; it purported to be submitted by a Lodge, but did not have the required
signatures.

  Resolutions 1-2004, 2-2004 and 3-2004 are the usual code requirements and deal
with annual budget, per capita tax, and place of the annual communication for the
year 2004. Resolution 2-2004 continues the present per capita tax.

   Resolution 5-2004 establishes procedure if a lodge desires to withdraw charges
forwarded to a trial comission, and provides oversight by the Grand Master.



                                         8
  Resolution 6-2004 requires that all members of a lodge discipline committee sign
the report requiring issuance of charges.

   Resolution 7-2004 proposes eliminating the $10.00 per diem paid to trial commis-
sion members, but continues to allow reimbursable expenses.

   Resolution 8-2004 allows a Lodge treasurer to hold any other office in the Lodge,
except secretary. If adopted, it would not become effective until September 1, 2006,
allowing any secretary-treasurer to serve another two terms beyond the present,
providing ample transition time for training new treasurers or secretaries.

   Resolution 9-2004 is proposed to allow lodge property to be rented out for non-
Masonic activities at which alcoholic beverages may be dispensed, but may not be
sold. The alcoholic beverages would be banned from the Lodge room proper. The first
paragraph of the resolution restates the present practice regarding wine and beer
on dispensation from the GM, but does not change it.

   Resolution 10-2004 reflects the concern growing out of the incident in New York,
and reaffirms the ban on anything “offensive or defensive” being brought into the
lodge, and establishes a reporting, suspension and/or Masonic charges procedure.

  Resolution 7-2003 is a holdover from 2003, and to be voted on this year, requires
changes in the Chaplains closing prayer and alternate closing prayer for all degrees.

  Each resolution has been approved as to form by the Resolution Committee and
submitted to the Executive Committee and Jurisprudence Committee for review.

                                                            Respectfully submitted,

                                                          Resolutions Committee
                                                        Jack E. Keyes, Chairman
                                                             Thomas W. Godfrey
                                                         Dean T. Massey, P.G.M.
                                              Bruce Sim, P.G.M., Grand Secretary
                                                             Archie E. Simonson

Report accepted.

holds a zero-tolerance policy on this matter and, if violated, the Master of the Lodge
shall give a written report within 24 hours to the Grand Master who will, upon
receipt of the report, immediately suspend the violator from the Fraternity pending
investigation into the violation. Such investigation may lead to additional action,
including expulsion from the Masonic Fraternity.

      REMARKS ON BEHALF OF PAST GRAND MASTERS
Most Worshipful, Past Grand Master Carl J. Wussow:

                  PAST GRAND MASTER’S REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   Most Worshipful Grand Master, Members of the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin,
distinguished guests and Brother Masons all, it is my honor and pleasure to speak
on behalf of the Past Grand Masters of Wisconsin. Our Grand Master asked me to
say a few words. I penned a few comments since, based on my age, I tend to forget
what I forgot.




                                       14
   Throughout the past year, we have taken the time to return to the basics and
heart of Masonry. With that in mind, I thought it would be appropriate to focus on
two sets of numbers at this time. The first set of numbers is based on the experience
factor related to the combined years of Masonic involvement of our Past Grand
Masters. A rapid calculation shows that the group holds over 500 years of experi-
ence. The same group continues to be involved, when called upon, to take various
roles that help our Gentle Craft’s goals. My Brothers, each of the Past Grand
Masters remain ready to help, to share knowledge and assist however possible. I also
need to emphasize that it is incorrect to say that you can always tell a Past Grand
Master, but you can’t tell him much.

   The second set of numbers adds up to 7. In fact, they are the most important
numbers of all of Masonry. Perhaps you are guessing about the relationship of the
number 7 to our fraternity. No, it is not part of the budget, the average length of time
it takes to become a Master of a lodge or the number of great fish stories that our
present Grand Master can detail. The number 7 relates directly to an unwritten
Masonic lesson that we all learned. The number represents the first 7 words we ever
spoke in a Masonic Lodge. They are the 7 words that should guide every action, every
decision and every deliberation that we shall have over the next 2 days and, in fact,
throughout every day of our lives.

  Before you ever entered a Lodge, you were asked if your choice to become a Mason
was of your own free will and accord. You responded, “It is.” Shortly after that
utterance, you openly announced that you placed your trust “in God.” After traveling
over a symbolic pathway, you again spoke. This time you affirmed your desire to
assume a sacred obligation when you said, “I am.” During your initiation, the last
word you spoke was “light.” Your Masonic sentence, therefore, is “It is in God I am
Light.” It is also significant to remember that the very last word was provided to you
by an experienced member of the Craft.

   It is the wish of the Past Grand Masters that we focus on these seven words as all
of us work to advance Masonry, listen to different viewpoints, make selections and
choices and decide the very future of our great organization. Unlike any other
gathering, group meeting, social organization or decision making body, ours is one
that can debate without negativity and listen with open minds to various view-
points. Assembled here for action is a body that maintains a profound respect for
each and every member regardless of positions on debatable topics.

    In a greater sense, reflect daily on what we stated in the presence of our Brother
Masons. Our deeds and actions will truly show that it is in God that we trust. That
it is the Grand Architect of the Universe who provides us the blueprint for decisions.
The lessons provided by Brother Masons give us the ability to take a part in leading
the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin so that this organization can exist and endure for
generations to come.

      REMARKS ON BEHALF OF DISTINGUISHED GUESTS
   Steven J. Krekus made a few remarks on behalf of the visiting brethren from other
jurisdictions. He asked all Masons to add their drawing to the set of God’s blueprints
for life, to the blueprint of their community, to the blueprint of young people, to those
in need and of their families. He said that Freemasonry is a blueprint for life. He
presented Grand Master DeWolf with a trowel that had written on it his name and




                                           15
theme for the year, “Freemasonry, a Blueprint for Life” and thanked him for all the
courtesies extended to him, the other distinguished guests and their ladies.

                 DEPUTY GRAND MASTER’S REPORT
My Brothers,

  It has been my distinct pleasure to have served our craft as your Right Worshipful
Deputy Grand Master this past Masonic year. As such, I have been privileged to
attend a number of functions in your name, locally as well as outside of our
immediate jurisdiction.

   These functions have included Lodge visitations, Officer Installations and inter-
action with our various appendant bodies as well as visits to our sister jurisdictions
in South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas and the District of Columbia.

   As your Masonic voice, I have attended various board and committee meetings in
a variety of capacities. It has been an honor to serve as President of the Wisconsin
Masonic Journal Board, Vice-president of the Wisconsin Masonic Benevolent
Activities Board, Chair of the Artifacts and Antiquities Committee, Chair of the
Masonic Education Committee and Chair of the Expenditures Committee in
addition to serving on the Masonic Day-Light 2004 Committee.

   Although these responsibilities have proved rewarding, the time spent traveling
throughout the state interacting with my Masonic brothers has been a source of
continual fulfillment for me. Opportunities to award many Membership Longevity
pins, speak at a number of Friend’s Nights, install the officers of local Lodges and
attend a multitude of Recognition Banquets and Table Lodges have served to
strengthen and nourish my Masonic roots. I have enjoyed greatly the conversations,
camaraderie and courtesy shown me by all whom I have had the pleasure to spend
time with.

   It is impossible to tally numerically in a few short paragraphs the time and travel
expended this past year in attaining the goals the Grand Master set before us twelve
months ago. And, although I may have inadvertently overlooked an item or two, it
should be noted that my attendance at such meaningful gatherings as our Shrine
all-star Football Game, Masonic all-star Senior High School Soccer Games,
Reobligation Night, York Rite and Scottish Rite Reunions, Zor Potentate’s Ball,
Prince Hall/Grand Lodge Table Lodge and Masonic Day-Light 2004 served to
further the cause of Masonic unity.

  With pride and humility, I thank you for allowing me the opportunity of being your
voice on behalf of Wisconsin Freemasonry these past twelve months.

                                                            Respectfully Submitted,

                                                            Keith D. Chamberlain
                                           Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master

Report accepted.




                                         16
                 SENIOR GRAND WARDEN’S REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  Brethren,

   It was indeed a pleasure and an honor to serve you this past year as your Senior
Grand Warden. This last year has given me the opportunity to serve this wonderful
fraternity and its members and I would like to thank each and every one of you for
that opportunity.

  First of all, I would like to thank my wife, Marlene, for her understanding of this
great fraternity, and putting up with my constant evenings away from home to be
able to participate in some Masonic program.

   My Masonic journey this past year has given me the opportunity to take part in
lodge installations, table lodges, Past Masters nights, and a variety of other
visitations. At this time I would like to thank those lodges for their confidence in me
to participate in their programs.

  It was also a pleasure for me to be able to meet, visit and take part with our other
Masonic organizations; such as the Daughters of the Nile, Eastern Star, Jobs
Daughters, DeMolay, and Rainbow for Girls, Scottish Rite, Chapter, Council,
Commandery and the Shrine.

  As your Senior Warden, I have had the privilege of serving on the Home Board
Committee for this past year. At this time I would like to commend the efforts of all
the members on that committee for their devotion and dedication to the success of
our Village on the Square. For the brothers who have not had an opportunity to see
our Masonic Home in Dousman, let me assure you the complete campus is in good
hands.

  A couple of highlights from my Masonic journey in 2003-04 are as follows; the
Masonic Soccer Program, Demolay Legion of Honor night, Sturgis Motorcycle trip,
and the table lodge with Prince Hall Masons of Wisconsin.

  As always, it is an honor and pleasure to work with the great staff of dedicated
members of the Masonic Soccer Foundation, in their effort to make the All-Star
Senior High School Soccer Games a success. To be able to see the change in the
attitude in most of the 72 Soccer Players, after their visit to the Shrine Hospital, and
playing soccer with the Special Olympic kids, will stay with me and confirm my
belief in the value of our involvement in the Soccer Program.

  It was also an honor for me to be nominated and invested as a member of the
DeMolay Legion of Honor. I would like to thank the DeMolay for the beautiful
ceremony that was conducted for me, and two other Masons in the state.

   In August I had the opportunity to be a part of a Masonic motorcycle trip organized
by the Minnesota Masonic Motorcycle Club for bikers from Minnesota and Wiscon-
sin to Sturgis, South Dakota. The Masonic Lodge in Deadwood, South Dakota hosted
the bikers for 2 days with lodging and meals, and the Grand Lodge of South Dakota
opened a special lodge meeting for the purpose of sharing Masonic brotherhood with
about 100 brothers throughout the U.S. They intend to make this an annual event
for all Masonic bikers, who are attending the Sturgis Rally.



                                          17
   One other highlight of the year was the table lodge with our brothers of Wisconsin
Prince Hall Masonry, which was a great success, and I was proud to be able to be a
part of this special event. It was great to see 150 brothers sharing in Masonic
fellowship.

  In closing, I would just like to say thanks to the fraternity for giving me the
opportunity to be able to be a part of such a great organization.

                                                              Fraternally submitted,

                                                                    Roger Magoon
                                            Right Worshipful Senior Grand Warden

Report accepted.

                 JUNIOR GRAND WARDEN’S REPORT
   Elected and installed as Junior Grand Warden, it became my duty to act as liason
coordinator between the Grand Lodge, constituent lodges, and the youth groups
(WMC 27.02). To fulfill this duty I attended the summer state meetings of Job’s
Daughters, DeMolay, and the Order of Rainbow; attended their meetings in the
southeastern part of the state as possible; and attended special events such as
Sweetheart Week-end, a Job o Lay meeting, and the Job’s Daughters Grand Session.
This has been a meaningful and valuable experience for me. I particularly would like
to commend the advisors of these youth groups for their commitment and dedica-
tion. Without them, there would be no youth groups.

   As a Grand Lodge officer I attended the Annual Communications of Prince Hall
Grand Lodge of Wisconsin and the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, co-chaired the
first Prince Hall-Grand Lodge of Wisconsin Table Lodge, arranged and co-ordinated
the four Masonic Leadership Renewal Seminars of 2003-04, installed officers of
several lodges, attended Schools of Instruction, attended Board and Foundation
meetings, participated in degrees in area lodges, and attended numerous Lodge
meetings and activities in the southeast corner of the state.

   This last year with my involvement with the youth, the leadership meetings, and
Lodge contacts has been very rewarding. The feelings of brotherhood extended to me
makes my membership as a Mason and a Grand Lodge Officer even more significant.
I thank the Fraternity for the opportunity to serve in this capacity and hope that I
will be able to make a positive contribution through my activities and presence this
next year.

                                                                Rodney A. Paulsen
                                                     Junior Grand Warden, 2003-04

Report accepted.

                 GRAND MASTER DeWOLF’S REPORT
Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Distinguished East and Brethren all.

  It is with a great deal of pleasure that I extend to each of you a warm and fraternal
welcome to this our 160th Annual Communication of the Most Worshipful Grand
Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin. I am honored to preside over this


                                          18
gathering and hope that when we have ended our labors, each of you has had a
fruitful, productive and positive experience.

   When I was raised on October 2nd, 1984 I never dreamed that my Masonic
journey would lead to being installed as your 134th Grand Master. This year has
passed quickly and I am truly grateful in having had the opportunity to serve
Freemasonry and this Grand Lodge. During my ten years as a Grand Lodge Officer
I have had the privilege of meeting some of the finest men in the world. I would not
have had that experience had it not been for you my Brothers. Thank you for
allowing me to represent you as your Grand Master for the 2003-2004 Masonic year.

  To our Past Grand Masters and visiting brethren, thank you for taking time from
your busy schedules to be with us in our labors and deliberations. It is my hope that
your time with us will be both rewarding and well spent.

                          GRAND LODGE OFFICERS

   Your Grand Lodge Officers have worked diligently this year as we revisited the
‘basics’ of our fraternity. Their energy and dedication to the craft is enormous and
they attained the goals set before them while steadfastly holding the line on
expenses.

   The elected officers, Right Worshipful Keith D. Chamberlain, Deputy Grand
Master, Right Worshipful Senior Grand Warden Roger Magoon, Right Worshipful
Junior Grand Warden Rodney A. Paulsen, Right Worshipful Grand Treasurer Jim
Hays, and Most Worshipful Grand Secretary Bruce Sim, have all worked coopera-
tively with this Grand Master to plan for the future of this jurisdiction. I thank them
for their advice and counsel.

   It was my privilege to appoint Worshipful Brother Joseph Harker to the progres-
sive line as Junior Grand Steward. Brother Joe has the many qualifications
necessary to make his Masonic journey a success and I have no doubt that he will
represent you well. I wish the very best for Brother Joe and his wife Mary through
the years ahead.

                                   NECROLOGY

  Wisconsin Freemasonry bids a fond farewell to 445 brothers who ceased their
labors and journeyed to the land where our fathers have gone before us. We count
among those brethren, M.W. Brother Benjamin Detroy, PGM and Worshipful
Brother William E. Post, this years Grand Pursuivant. We set this moment aside to
honor their memory, knowing their departure is more than something to be
remembered. It is a time to give thanks for what they built in life as they labored
unselfishly in the quarries of our gentle craft.

   The service rendered to Freemasonry by these brothers will live on, not as much
for their individual accomplishments, but by the spirit in which they gave of
themselves to our craft. The bridges they built while amongst us stand as twin
sentinels of honor and respect for those who have yet to follow.

  This poem by Clarence D. Harris sums up my feelings:
      So friend, I now take my leave of you
      That I may this bridge complete
      That those who travel behind me


                                          19
      May behold the mercy seat.
      That I may cross this chasm deep and wide
      To travel beyond the veil
      I build this bridge to span spaces and times
      That I may dwell in that house not made with hands
      Where the great light of the Architect of the Universe
      Forever shines. I will gladly carry the sword and shield;
      I will wield the spear and mace with honor and zeal
      I will serve in the army of “God”
      On Mountains, valley and field.
      The gates will swing open on the columns of Boaz and Jachin
      I will find that heaven is real.
      I believe that the work in the quarries and vineyards,
      The sacred word to seek, will be worth it all
      When I hear the Great Architect of the Universe say,
      “You are a workman worth of your keep.”
      So Mote It Be

                        BROTHER GRAND CHAPLAIN

                           NECROLOGY REPORT
  We have come to the close of another Masonic year and once again must sadly
report that we have had to drape our charters hundreds of times as on a daily
occurence our brethren one by one are moving from the Blue Lodge to the Celestial
Lodge.

  It is with profound sorrow that we report the loss of two members of our Grand
Lodge family: the Most Worshipful Past Grand Master Ben Detroy and Worshipful
Grand Pursuivant William E. Post, they served us well and faithfully as long as they
were given strength and breath. As the Master of Shell Lake Lodge, I have directed
the draping of our charter on two occasions already this year and we are only half
way through our lodge year. Unfortunately and inevitably this is happening all
across our State so that we all experience the deep and profound loss caused by the
passing of so many dedicated men.

   During these moments we pause to remember those who have given so much for
so many years to so great a cause as our fraternity and we bow in humility in
remembrance of the greatness of spirit that has passed from our midst. These who
have served with us will never be replaced, nor shall they ever be forgotten. Their
lives have left an indelible stamp on our memories and they shall ever reside in our
hearts.

   Each person whom we have mentioned and each of those whose names are
inscribed on this report has been at one time a very vital part of our fraternity and
of our lives. They have left a vacuum and they are deeply mourned and greatly
missed. We have been privileged to have known them and to have worked with them.
As we realize our great loss and express our tremendous sorrow, we also remember
those were closest to them and who must have most acutely felt the reality of their
passing from this life. They must surely be remembered in our prayers as we invoke
the guidance of Deity and look for direction to continue moving forward.




                                         20
  We should all join our hearts as we remember in prayer these, our brothers.

Let us pray:

   Eternal Power of Creation and Architect of This Universe, we pause, all too
briefly, in remembrance of those who have served with us, who have kept the faith,
and who have passed into immortality. Their words have given us direction, their
lives have taught us values and their memories will continue to give us hope.

   Life, even at its longest venue is yet very brief. So much should yet be accom-
plished, but these whom we remember today have given their all, they have fought
the good fight, they have endeavored to be the purveyors of the great qualities for
which Freemasonry stands. They have carried the torches of brotherly love, relief
and truth, and held them high until strength and life left them. Now give us the
grace to carry the torches into the future, that others with receive guidance as they
have given the guidance to us. And Amen.

                                     OFFICE STAFF

  The Grand Lodge Office staff has been a valuable source of ongoing support over
the past twelve months.

  As many of you know, patience is not one of my great virtues, and the staff has
always been quick to respond, providing timely and accurate information as needed.
My thanks to Jan Gorgen, Alicia Darr, Cheryl Geiszler, and Scott Graske. The
compliments I have received regarding their responsiveness and willingness to lend
assistance have been numerous and are well deserved.

                               PAST GRAND MASTERS

   Several times this year I have called upon the Past Grand Masters to provide
counsel on a variety of subjects. They have willingly shared their knowledge while
at the same time providing support and encouragement. We are somewhat unique
in the fact that our Past Grand Masters do not dictate policy, but rather, willingly
participate in an open exchange of thoughts. We are fortunate to have this type of
dedication from these past Masonic leaders.

                            GRAND LODGE TRUSTEES

   Our Trustees have worked diligently to manage and improve our financial
investments. Under their direction I have appointed an Ad-Hoc Committee for
Evaluation and Analysis of all Grand Lodge of Wisconsin Property and Buildings.
I believe we need to develop a 3-5 and 7-year plan for the total management of our
holdings that will run in conjunction with a 3-5 and 7-year plan for the Grand Lodge.
Many times the work of the Grand Trustees goes unnoticed, and this year in
particular, they have had to make some hard decisions for the overall benefit of the
Craft. I thank them on your behalf for their hard work and dedication.

                                  CONSOLIDATIONS

   There comes a time in the life of some lodges when they must consider consolida-
tion. This is always a hard decision to make, and many times it is prolonged for years,



                                             24
sometimes to the extent that the lodge is never able to fully consolidate and become
viable in the community. If done properly, a consolidation can bring new life to
several lodges. This year we have had five (5) consolidations, and I have personally
seen positive results for several of those lodges effected by consolidation. Two of the
five have only recently consolidated and have as yet to develop a track record. As of
this report there are a total of 196 lodges in the jurisdiction of Wisconsin.

                         SURRENDERED CHARTERS

  This year we have had one lodge surrender it’s Charter. I believe that there are
a number of other lodges in this State that are considering or should consider
surrendering their Charters or merging with another lodge. When a lodge no longer
meets and ceases to function as a viable Masonic Lodge, it is time to consider a
change. It is imperative that each lodge consider the image it portrays within the
community it serves.

                            ARRESTED CHARTERS

  I am pleased to report that it was not necessary to arrest the Charter of any lodge
this year.

        MASONIC TRIALS, ACCOUNTABILITY AND DISCIPLINE

   We have a very specific set of guidelines that individual Lodges and we as Masons
are charged to follow within the Masonic Code of the State of Wisconsin. More
importantly, each and everyone of us when kneeling at the altar of Freemasonry,
took upon ourselves certain solemn and binding obligations given of our own free-
will and accord. These obligations are the guiding principals of our fraternity and
I used them when making decisions on your behalf.

   During the course of the year, it was my unpleasant duty to remove two seated
Worshipful Masters and prefer unmasonic charges against one of them. As a result
of this action, both men have resigned from the Fraternity.

    As Grand Master I have initiated unmasonic charges against a Brother for gross
violation of his Master Mason Obligation. A trial commission will be appointed and
if found guilty that individual will be required to suffer the penalties recommended
by the Commission.

   My Brothers, to be a Freemason is a privilege not a right. When you willingly
violate the obligations you have taken, be prepared to suffer the consequences which
in many cases could lead to expulsion from the Craft.

   I cannot stress how important it is to be prudent when extending the hand of
Brotherhood. We need men of quality and good character as brothers, not more men
to be members.

                  CORNERSTONES AND REDEDICATIONS

  First and foremost was the rededication we all participated in one year ago, and
that was our reobligation and rededication to the principals of our Craft. On October
29th an Emergent Communication was opened for the purpose of a statewide
reobligation. I have felt the energy generated from that event throughout the year.




                                          25
  On December 29th, 2003 I was pleased to open an Emergent Communication for
the purpose of rededicating Racine-Belle City #92. On May 11th, 2004 I was again
privileged to open an Emergent Communication for the purpose of laying the
Cornerstone for Durand-Pepin #149. These are events that I will always remember
and as I told the Brethren of Durand-Peppin, it is probably the only time that I will
ever be happy to see my name engraved on a chunk of granite.

                                     FINANCE

   Last year I promised you that the budget would be held. We paired down the
budget by approximately 22% over previous years. Each and every Grand Lodge
Officer has been prudent in their expenses and Staff Meetings have been reorga-
nized and substantially reduced in cost. We have covered the overages of last years
Annual Communication and have still come in under budget for the 2003-2004
Masonic year. Most importantly, we have not reduced service to the Craft. The
Grand Master’s Budget was reduced from $40,000 to $30,000 and came in at
$23.721. As your Grand Master I traveled extensively around the state and had 143
overnights, only 26 of which were applied to the budget. To accomplish this,
arrangements were made with Three Pillars for use of the guest room when I was
in the Dousman area with accommodations provided by appendant bodies, friends,
myself or other jurisdictions when visiting out of state. Additionally, I attended 290
functions and/or Masonic activities. I am also pleased to report that I have attended
lodge in Wausau at least once a month. A complete visitation and travel agenda is
attached to this report. I believe that through prudent planning one can provide the
service the Craft expects and needs while adhering to the budget.

                                 TO MY FAMILY

   The last 10 years of this journey have been possible because of the love, support
and understanding of my Wife Marilyn and Son Andrew. I fully realized the extent
of my Sons support when he asked for and received membership in our fraternity on
April 3rd. I was one proud Dad that day.

                              THE PERFECT JOB

   One year ago I told you that our challenge was to stress the basics which formed
the basis of our well established order... that the combination of these true and
tested principles coupled with progressive and positive efforts would show the world
that the core concept of Freemasonry is its true beauty and value, and as such, will
continue to keep our gentle craft attractive and challenging to those who understand
and seek out its mysteries.

  One year ago you, my fellow Masons, granted me the honor of leading the Masonic
Fraternity in Wisconsin. With a strong focus on the basic concepts that reflect
everything good we do as Masons, and through the brotherhood of fellow Masons
such as yourselves, I began my role last June and now have the ability to support
our future Masonic leaders.

   We all know that Freemasonry is a way of life. We feel it often when meeting
others who are members of the Craft... the joy of sharing... the acceptance of
differences... these are some of the rewards of Masonic life.

  Today, outside our Lodge doors humanity is experiencing dark moments that are



                                         26
marked by violence, war, suffering, and chaos. In these moments of disarray,
disorder, and confused values, we must remember that lodge meetings are a place
for apprenticeship, a place for perfection. In lodge we learn to become a Mason, each
according to our talents and each accepting these talents. Read the morning paper
and you will see that our fraternity is needed now more than ever.

   There are those who say we are on the decline, do not believe it. There is a new
energy afoot, a new generation is preparing to grasp the reigns of leadership and we
need to be ready to accept them into our Craft. I believe that the next 7 to 10 years
will offer our fraternity the greatest influx of membership since the 1950’s. We need
to be prepared to receive new brethren. But beware; the opportunity for additional
membership is a double edged sword. Do not accept men just for the sake of numbers;
accept only those that are of quality, those whom you would trust your wife, sister
or daughter with.

   Young men are looking at our fraternity because it is value orientated. It is
imperative that the lodge understand who it is and why it exists. We are not a social
fraternity; we are a fraternity that can change society. We have done so in the past
and we will do so in the future. As long as the concepts of friendship, morality,
brotherly love, circumspection of thought, word, and deed direct our efforts, I am
convinced that Masonry in Wisconsin will continue to play a vital part in today’s
society. It will continue to attract individuals of the highest quality into it’s ranks
while standing ready to fulfill its commitment to its members and to mankind in
general.

  My brothers, you are the perfect fraternity, and for one year you have given me
the perfect job. In many ways and in many situations, I have tried to prove that my
position was one of service to the Craft. The honor of being called Grand Master can
never be repaid in any way and I hope you have found my service to be satisfactory.

   May the Grand Architect watch over each and everyone of you. May God bless our
fraternity and our great nation.

                                                          Sincerely and Fraternally,

                                                                  Michael A. DeWolf

       APPEALS AND GRIEVANCES COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   “The Appeals and Grievances committee is the one that reviews the actions of the
Grand Master or lodges on expulsions and suspensions, and on edicts and decisions
that are appealed. For that reason I request that my report be bifurcated in such a
form that I’ll ask you to adopt or reject a portion of our recommendation and that
becomes the action of the Grand Lodge. As you know, the Grand Lodge has the final




                                               34
approval on these very serious matters.

   “The first matter to have come before the Grand Master is that of Jeffrey J. Jahnke.
Mr. Jahnke was found guilty of two class B felonies, one first degree sexual assault
of a child contrary to Wisconsin statute 948.02 sub 1 and the second repeated sexual
assault of the same child under the age of sixteen contrary to 948.02 sub 1. The
Judgement of Conviction was entered on January 30, 2003. Mr. Jahnke received 10
years in prison on count #1 and 25 years probation on count #2. The Grand Master
expelled him with no conditions of reinstatement. The committee reviewed and voted
unanimously to uphold the Grand Masters expulsion and I would move for the
approval of the action of the committee.” The motion was seconded and approved.

  “The next Brother to come before the Grand Master and ultimately before the
committee is that of Barry V. O’Conner who was a member of the United States Air
Force. He was serving in Panama and Georgia and while doing so, committed
sodomy with a female under the age of sixteen on four separate occasions. He was
discharged from the U.S. military with a dishonorable discharge and confined in
their institutions for a period of to be not less than fifteen years. That action is
considered a Judgement of Conviction by the Jurisprudence committee. Based on
that the Grand Master Expelled Mr. O’Conner. It came before out committee for
review. We unanimously agreed with the Grand Master and we upheld the expulsion.
Therefore, I move for the approval of the action of the committee.” The motion was
seconded and approved.

   The third Brother to be expelled by the Grand Master is Gale Hermance. Gale
Hermance was the secretary of Genoa City Lodge. They were going surrender their
charter. They had a total of about $21,000 in assets and Mr. Hermance decided that
though that lodge had existed almost 100 years, the money belonged to him. He
decided that he would go to the State of Missouri. When the Grand Masters
predecessors requested that it be returned he said no, so he was extradited to the State
of Wisconsin and tried and found guilty of a felony. Based on the fact that there was
no appeal, the Grand Master expelled Mr. Hermance. The Appeals and Grievances
committee has reviewed that. There is one caveat to that and that is that Mr.
Hermance’s appeal time to the Appeals and Grievances committee really has not
expired. The Grand Master feels that it is very important that this be brought before
you. If he appeals, whoever the Deputy Grand Master appoints as the Appeals and
Grievances committee next year, I am sure, will at least accept and hear the appeal.
We unanimously agreed with the Grand Master and we upheld the expulsion.
Therefore, I move for the approval of the action of the committee.” The motion was
seconded and approved.

  “The last disciplinary matter to have come before the committee involves Brother
Michael Means. He was the Master of that same lodge and the Secretary came to him
and said, you know we are going to surrender our charter and this money we should
divide up amongst ourselves, so you should take $4,000 of it. Brother Means
unwittingly complied. I have to report to you that when it was reported to us, he was
very remorseful, very cooperative and frankly I don’t know if they could have
prosecuted Mr. Means. We thought that the punishment given Mr. Means, which is
suspension for an indefinite period of time until he has successfully completed and
passed the written exam for the Masonic Code Correspondence Course was appropri-
ate. There has also been complete restitution. Based on the actions of the Grand
Master the Appeals and Grievances committee unanimously approved his action and



                                          35
moved that the Grand Lodge do as well.” The motion was seconded and approved.

  “That concludes my report.”

                                                                Respectfully submitted,

                                                         Stephen D. Willett, Chairman
                                                                     William D. Dyke
                                                                    Herman A. Friess
                                                                  Steven R. Sorenson
                                                                     J. B. Van Hollen

                     GRAND TREASURER’S REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   Complying with Sections 24.02 and 34.02 of the Wisconsin Masonic Code, Laws
of the Grand Lodge, it is a privilege to submit the Grand Treasurer’s Annual Report.

  The Grand Lodge Budget adopted for the fiscal year 2003-2004 anticipated
revenues/expenses of $917,115. The ten months - actual plus two months - estimated
expenses are projected to be $905,082. This is approximately $12,000 under budget.
The primary reasons for being under budget are the fiscal restraint exercised by the
Grand Lodge officers and district teams ($45,070 under) and the anticipated cost
($44,000 under) of the Masonic Daylight class. Major increases in costs were for the
2003 Annual Communication ($43,576) and building/liability cost ($37,329) for
Grand Lodge The revenues, projected on the same basis, are expected to be
$905,082. However, we anticipate an increase of approximately $6,200 in the
Investment Income allocation due to a shortfall in revenue from supply sales and
contributions received.

   The auditors’ report will verify all receipts and disbursements and give an
accounting of the existing condition of the several funds of the Grand Lodge as of
April 30. 2004, complying with the terms of Section 24.02 and 34.02 and are not
duplicated here. The audit report, in all its’ detail, is on file in the Grand Lodge office
for review by any member of the Craft. Also, the report will be printed in the official
proceedings of this Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted
Masons of Wisconsin.

  As of April 12, 2004, all lodges except Evening Star No. 64, Dells No. 124, Acadia
No. 201, Ancient Landmark No. 210, Superior No. 236, and Mystic Tie No. 280 have
submitted their Annual Financial Reports. Further, Dells No. 124 and Shell Lake
No. 221 have not paid their per capita tax. All lodges involved have been sent written
notice that they are delinquent.

   There are currently 2797 Perpetual Membership Plan participants of whom 2005
are living and active. Several brothers who are on the deferred payment plan are
delinquent and have been notified and appraised of the obligation. Their home
lodges will not receive the corresponding dues until they are current on their
payments.

  In compliance with Section 24.01 of the Wisconsin Masonic Code, I have made
arrangements to personally sign al mileage and per diem checks for representatives




                                            36
attending the 2004 Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Free and
Accepted Masons of Wisconsin. Arrangements for distribution of the checks on
Tuesday, June 15, have been made in conformity with Section 30.06 of the Wisconsin
Masonic Code.

   Thank you brethren for the privilege and pleasure of serving as your Grand
Treasurer this past year. It truly has been a learning experience for me that can be
put to good use in the future. A special thank you to the staff at the Grand Lodge
office. Their patience and very able assistance in answering my many questions is
greatly appreciated. And finally, a special thank you to our Grand Master Michael
A. DeWolf for expressing confidence in me and allowing me to serve our Fraternity
as a part of his team. It has been a good year and I am very honored to have been
a part of it.

                                                             Fraternally submitted,

                                                                    James M. Hays
                                                                   Grand Treasurer

Report accepted.

                EXPENDITURES COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   In compliance with Section 29.05 of the Wisconsin Masonic Code, we are pleased
to submit the Expenditures Committee report and the proposed budget for the fiscal
year 2004-2005.

  On April 28,2004, copies of the proposed budgets for the Grand Lodge of Free and
Accepted Masons of Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Masonic Journal, and the Farm were
mailed to each constituent Lodge and to the officers and permanent members of the
Grand Lodge. Resolution No. 1 addresses the adoption of these budgets.

   The Expenditures Committee met on several occasions during the 2003-2004
fiscal year to review the anticipated expenses and resource requirements for the
fiscal year 2004-2005. To this end, each line item of each budget was reviewed,
discussed, and analyzed in light of anticipated proposed programs, projects, and
service to the craft. On March 13, 2004, the final budget recommendations were
reviewed and approved.

   The proposed budget for fiscal year 2004-2005 reflects an increase of $25,704 or
2.8% from the budget for fiscal year 2003-2004. The major reason for this increase
is the Grand Lodge insurance cost increase of $31,500. Liability, building, and
building content portions of our insurance increase significantly. Further, a very
modest increase is proposed in our charitable expenses.

   The proposed salary and benefit increases for our Grand Lodge employees reflect
a modest cost of living increase. There are no Grand Lodge officers receiving a salary
from the Grand Lodge.

  To offset the increase in expenditures, decreases of $11,500 in Grand Lodge
Officers, Committees, and District Teams expenses and $16,359 in Grand Lodge
Office - Services to the Craft expenses were deemed appropriate.



                                         37
  With the exception of Investment Income, we are anticipating a decrease in
revenue of $20,120. This shortfall and the increase in expenses of $25,704 necessi-
tate an increase in Investment Income allocation of $45,824 to balance the budget.

  The Expenditures Committee proposes a balanced budget for the Grand Lodge
and for the Wisconsin Masonic Journal. The proposed budget for the Farm indicates
an excess of revenue over expenses of $25,100.

  The Expenditures Committee recommends the adoption of the 2004-2005 fiscal
year budgets for the Grand Lodge, the Wisconsin Masonic Journal, and the Farm.

                                                           Fraternally submitted,

                                    James M. Hays, Grand Treasurer, Chairman
                                    Keith D. Chamberlain, Deputy Grand Master

under regulation 1.6022-2(A) (d) (d) Group Returns. This group return is filed under
I.D. No. 23-7145169.

Insurance
   The Blanket Insurance Program continues to be a major concern of all the lodges
and the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin. Costs of insurance continue to rise and the Grand
Lodge has no direct control over the rates for insurance and increases. We have met
several times with Robertson and Ryan, our insurance agents about the continuous
rise in costs and with them looked for the best deal for the lodges and the Grand
Lodge.



                                         44
   As per the decision of Past Grand Master Myers, each lodge that owns their
building is required to have insurance through the Grand Lodge. This ensures that
the lodges are covered properly. If a lodge has questions on their insurance, please
address them to Robertson and Ryan and they will supply you with the information
you may need. Robertson and Ryan assured us this past year that if a lodge sent in
a request with proper documentation, that their lodge is over insured, the amount
was adjusted accordingly.

  The Grand Lodge also provides a blanket policy for lodges that rent space and do
not own a building. We are now charging a reasonable and fair rate for those lodges,
as the costs to the Grand Lodge are increasing and it would a fair adjustment in
retrospect to the lodges who do own their buildings. This process has begun in 2004
with the approval of the Executive Committee of the Grand Lodge.

Grand Lodge Website
   Our website is www.wisc-freemasonry.org and is available for information
pertaining to the operations of the Grand Lodge. On the site there is specific
information from the Grand Master and other Grand Lodge Officers. We encourage
you to visit the site and make your comments known to the Grand Lodge Office as
to improvements or information you would like to see.

  We have contracted with the Grand Lodge of Ohio to provide service for us on our
website and the problems we encountered in the past have been reduced dramati-
cally. We thank them for their assistance in this matter.

Email
   The Grand Loge Officers and the Grand Lodge, along with many lodges continue
to use this effective tool to communicate and it is becoming one of the most common
tools we use today. Our address is glo@wisc-freemasonry.org.

   We encourage you to use this tool for the majority of your requests or processes.
I want to remind each of the members and lodges that there are protocols that should
still be followed for communicating within other grand jurisdictions. All correspon-
dence should still be sent through the Grand Secretary and I will then forward it on
to the respective recipient’s Grand Lodge. As our technology grows, we still have to
maintain certain courtesies that are considered important to many Masons and
Grand Jurisdictions.

BLIS, (Blue Lodge Information System)
  The Grand Lodge is looking to revamp this system to make it more user friendly
and adaptable to lodges as well as the Grand Lodge. Our Grand Lodge Computer
Committee is looking into this program and seeing how to proceed.

Grand Masonic Center
  We encourage each of you to visit the Grand Masonic Center in Dousman. We have
a very functional building which houses not only the Grand Lodge, but also the
Eastern Star and the York Rite Bodies, along with the Director of Development and
his staff. Please visit.

Grand Lodge Staff
  I can’t say enough about our Grand Lodge staff, Scott Graske, Administrator, Jan
Gorgen, Alicia Darr, and Cheryl Geiszler. They have been at my right hand for these
past three years and without their professionalism and dedication to the Craft, I



                                        45
would not have been able to do the job of Grand Secretary. Thanks to all of you.

Grand Lodge Officers
   It has been a real pleasure serving as Grand Secretary this year and serving under
a corps of Grand Lodge Officers who have been and continue to be dedicated to the
Craft. They have always shown that the lodges and the Masons of those lodges are
first to be listened to and assisted if needed. Each Mason in Wisconsin should be
proud to be served by this highly professional and dedicated group.

   Finally, I would like to thank the Craft of Wisconsin for their support of my wife
Dee and me these past years. The memories we share and will continue to share will
be safely and always lodged in my heart. Due to conflicts and added job responsibili-
ties in my full time position, I am stepping down from the position of Grand
Secretary. I can no longer give the time needed for this most important position.
Thanks to all of you and may the Supreme Architect of the Universe be with all of
you always.

                                                                     Respectively Submitted,

                                                                         Bruce S. Sim, P.G.M.

       PRESENTATION OF AWARD TO GRAND SECRETARY
  Grand Master DeWolf presented the Grand Master’s Certificate of Meritorious
Masonic Service to Bruce S. Sim, Past Grand Master and Grand Secretary for his
over thirty years of service to Freemasonry and his outstanding support and
dedication to symbolic Freemasonry as Grand Secretary in Wisconsin from 2001-
2004.



                                                  47
                        GRAND TRUSTEES REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

    “The Trustees manage the Grand Lodge properties and investments on your
behalf. When they appointed me and then you elected me to this position, many
thought that they were putting the fox in the hen house. The reason for that is as
Brother George (Wallinger) said to me “You know, when I was Grand Master we had
$13,000,000 invested. How much do you have now and what happened to it?” I told
him we have $8,500,000 now and I spent it all. It is not true, the market actually took
it from $8,500,000 down to about $5,000,000. When I was Grand Master I did spend
a lot of it and that’s why they appointed me to this position to get it back. We’ve gotten
back about $3,000,000 and we’ve re-structured the investments. We keep reviewing
those on a quarterly basis to determine where the growth, strength and weaknesses
are in the market. I won’t bore you with the current trends, but I do want to tell you
that things look good. We’ve increased over a million dollars this year and it looks like
we will be projecting at least that for next year.”

   “As the Grand Master indicated, on April 22, 2004, he appointed an AD HOC
committee for the purpose of evaluating all of your assets. This committee was
charged to develop a five-year plan to manage each of our holdings in an effort to
generate a positive cash flow for the Grand Lodge. The committee consists of six of
your brothers, they are Brothers William E. Day, PGM, and member of the Board of
Trustees, Blair Dixon, member of the Board of Trustees, Lawrence Myers, PGM,
Rodney A. Paulsen, GJW, Steve Pruitt and Mark Strautman. The committee is
charged to evaluate these particular properties and to come up with a strategic plan
on how they are to be managed. Brother Day is the Chairman. Since April, the
committee has met on two occasions. On its initial meeting it went through and
created a list of 18 properties and assets they chose to evaluate and set a plan for. The
committee’s goal is to have a first draft to present to you by the next Annual
Communication.”

   “You have heard a great deal, I suspect, that the Trustees have taken a different
tact concerning the leasing of their properties. Our membership is declining, though
congratulations to the Grand Lodge this year in slowing that decline, but with that
goes our per capita and our income. We are charged to manage your assets to the best
of our ability, and to try to make them fruitful, so we are taking that opportunity. This
year when the Home Board came to us and wanted to lease that land on the corner
by Three Pillars, we agreed to do that. We entered into a 99-year lease. We had it
appraised at $350,000 and entered into a 30-year lease for $35,000 a year with that
first lease being for 30 years and then we will review it, based on the economy and
values at that time.”

   “The next thing of great concern and what the Grand Master has asked me to raise
with you is Van Brunt Hall. Van Brunt, as you know, is our jewel. It is 63,000 square
feet of beautiful building. It was originally built as our Home and has been operated
for a long time as our Home. The Home Board and the people charged with that have
come to the conclusion after great study, that it doesn’t meet its mission any longer.
They are in the process of re-evaluating that use. We had a very restricted use on it
that it could only be used as a Home. The Trustees, therefore, consented to the
amendment of the lease to allow the Home Board to expand the use to turn the
property into a commercial property. If in fact it turns into an income generating




                                           48
property outside of its use as a Home or healthcare related facility, they will share
those profits with Grand Lodge. They and we are looking for input from you, so it is
our request that you take this back to your lodges and you discuss what you think
would be good. Please put those ideas in writing and send them to Mark Strautman.”

  “That concludes my report.”

                                                          William E. Day, P.G.M.

           GEORGE WASHINGTON MASONIC NATIONAL
                    MEMORIAL REPORT
Brother George Seghers, Executive Secretary:
   “Most Worshipful Grand Master, thank you for inviting and allowing me to attend
this annual session. It is great to be here. My Brethren, I am George Seghers the
Executive Secretary of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial, the only
national Masonic memorial we have in this great nation. George Washington was the
one man who did more and gave more for the creation of this great nation than any
other. Washington had the charisma and the strength of character to hold the
Continental Army together for eight long years of the revolution and to ultimately win
that revolution. In those eight long years, he returned to Mt. Vernon only once, and
that was on the way to the battle of Yorktown. Washington was a man of incredible
strength, character and honesty. He viewed public service as service not as a career.
He was our first commander-in-chief, our first president, certainly our foremost
Freemason and truly the Father of our County. America is America today due to the
efforts and sacrifices of Washington and our Founding Fathers. It is fitting and
proper that the Masons of the United States erected a memorial to this incredible man
and incredible Mason. My Brothers, we as Americans and as Freemasons have
allowed the Father of our Country to slip into obscurity. I believe we should return
George Washington to the proper place and so richly position he once held and should
hold. We owe him the honor and respect that he so richly deserves.”
  “When I was a school child there was a picture of George Washington in every
school. We were taught the history of this great nation, we were taught about the
character of Washington and the great deeds, the accomplishments and the suffer-
ings that were instrumental in the founding of this nation. February 22nd was a
national holiday, a day when America paused to honor the memory of the one man




                                         65
who did more and gave more for us than any other. I believe making Washington’s
birthday a generic holiday was a terrible mistake. As our first and greatest president,
George Washington deserves to be distinguished from the rest of the presidents. The
George Washington Masonic Memorial honors and preserves the honors and pre-
serves the memory and legacy of this remarkable man and Mason.”

   “The idea of erecting a National Masonic Memorial for George Washington was
formulated by several members of Alexander Washington Lodge in Alexandria,
Virginia. The lodge had lost several invaluable artifacts and relics of George
Washington in a series of fires. The lodge decided to erect a fireproof lodge building
to house the Washington relics entrusted to their care by the Washington family. This
original idea soon grew to erect a national memorial to our distinguished Mason,
George Washington. In 1910 the Grand Master of Virginia called a meeting of the
Grand Masters of the United States to form an association to raise funds and erect
the memorial. In 1923 the local memorial committee of Alexandria published a
booklet describing the proposed memorial that emphasized the relationship of the
design of the structure and classical ideals and I quote, “The memorial to Washington
in its colossal form would typify the power and strength of Masonry. The graceful
outline and proportions would symbolize the beautiful tenets of the institution and
would express the unfeigned loyalty and devotion of the American Mason to the ideals
of Washington.” My Brothers this is how our brethren thought in the ‘20’s and ‘30’s.”

   “The memorial is built of enduring granite quarried from the mountains of New
Hampshire. The memorial was designed to stand throughout the ages and carry the
message of human brotherhood to perpetuate the attributes of self-denial, patriotism,
love of country and fellow man typified by the master builder of our nation, George
Washington. And I might add that there are no materials from any foreign nation in
the memorial. It is all constructed from materials made or found in America.”

   “According to our charter, the purpose of the George Washington Masonic National
Memorial Association is to erect and maintain a suitable memorial temple to George
Washington the Mason, which expresses endurability and beauty, and the undying
esteem of the Freemasons of the United States for him in whose memory it shall stand
throughout the coming years. That’s a very clear mission statement in my mind. I
believe our memorial has done that and more. It portrays the ideals of Washington
and is an inspiration for and a testament of the love of our fraternity for him. It is more
than a memorial to George Washington the Mason, it is a monument to civil and
religious liberty to a stable and orderly government and to those principles of
Freemasonry by which the father of his country was an exemplar. The memorial was
constructed entirely with voluntary contributions from the members of the Masonic
fraternity. The active membership of the George Washington Masonic National
Memorial Association consists of the fifty-two Grand Masters of the United States
and Puerto Rico. The active membership is the ultimate authority of the Association.
From the active membership a board of directors consisting of twenty-one members
is elected. The board of directors is charged with a fiscal and physical responsibility
for the Memorial Association and for the Memorial Temple. The George Washington
Masonic National Memorial erected in honor of the memory of our greatest citizen in
Freemasonry George Washington belongs to the Grand Lodge of the United States
and thus belongs to all the Freemasons of the United States. Our task today is not only
to preserve the memory and legacy of George Washington, but also to preserve,
promote and perpetuate the Masonic beliefs and ideals upon which this great nation
was founded. The George Washington Memorial was erected and maintained
through the combined efforts of America’s Freemasons and your continued support



                                            66
enables us to support the memorial in a manor that reflects honor and dignity on
Brother George Washington and on the Masonic fraternity.”

   “My brethren, running the memorial is kind of a catch-22. We must keep the
memorial in a presentable condition so that we can be proud of it, so people will want
to come and visit it. To do that we have to spend vast sums of money, which we usually
don’t have. We do a lot of juggling. The brethren that built the memorial did a
tremendous job. They built the building for $8,000,000 in the Great Depression. It
would probably be $800,000,000 today. But they failed us because they did not endow
the association. I am going to run through a few numbers, with your permission
Grand Master. Today we have 12 Grand Lodges that give us a per capita, which is
a contribution per member per year, plus a per-initiate contribution. We have 4
Grand Lodges who give us a per capita only, we have 30 that give us a per-initiate
only and we have 6 who give us money from the general budget. Brethren, all the
Grand Lodges in this country are not doing their part to support the memorial, quite
frankly. Some are doing a tremendous job, most are doing okay, some are doing
nothing and it is a shame.”

   “I did a ten-year study on the memorial and we came up with a plan that if we can
get the majority of the Grand Lodges to enact a per capita we can save the memorial
for future generations. It’s very simple, if you have an average membership in this
country of 1,750,000, $.50 per member would generate $875,000. That sounds good
except our operating expenses are about $1,300,000 per year. So if you factor in a 3%
decrease in membership and a 3% increase in operating expenses, even if all the
Masons gave us $.50, in 5 years we would have a deficit of $2,800,000. We don’t do
that because we raise money in other ways. We do get approximately $385,000 from
our endowment, we get about $300,000 from the Grand Lodges and another $40,000
from the appendant bodies. We raise the rest each year. It’s a struggle brethren. With
that same membership of 1,750,000 a $1.00 contribution would raise $1,750,000
each year. In a 5 year period we could re-invest $1,297,000. It gets even better. If we
could get a $2.00 per capita, that would generate $3,500,000 per year. That’s not a
lot of money, $2.00 per year, per man. At that rate, in a 5-year period we could invest
$5,500,000. We have an endowment right now of about $11,000,000. If we could add
$9,000,000 to that, we would have a $20,000,000 endowment. That is all we need.
$20,000,000 with a 5.2% return would generate over $1,000,000 a year in revenue
that we could use.”

   “Brethren, we need your help and we appreciate the support you give us now. I
appreciate being allowed to come out here and talk to you. I don’t want you to think
that we have a sinking ship, because we do not. We have a beautiful ship, a beautiful
memorial. I encourage you to come out and visit, it’s your memorial not mine. I am
just a steward of it. I work for you. I work for fifty-two Grand Masters, can you believe
that? It’s not easy sometimes. We have a great web site, check it out. It is
www.gwmemorial.org and I have an exhibit out here in Board Room B. I will be there
all afternoon after the session. Please come over and see me, ask me any question, I
will be glad to answer them.”

  “Grand Master, it has been great to meet you the last couple of years and get to know
you. On behalf of the George Washington Masonic National Memorial Association,
I present the certificate of appreciation to Most Worshipful Brother Michael A.
DeWolf, Grand Master, 2003-2004 of the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of
Wisconsin, with sincere appreciation for your interest in and support of the George
Washington Masonic National Memorial, witness our hand and the seal of the


                                           67
association presented this 14th day of June, 2004.”

   Grand Master DeWolf thanked George Seghers for the certificate and said that
he had a special place in his heart for the George Washington Masonic National
Memorial. He firmly believes that it is a memorial that Masons need to support
because it tells the story of the fraternity. He issued a challenge that if the members
at the Grand Lodge could raise $1000 between that moment and the next morning
he would let them shave his head in Grand Lodge.
   Stephen D. Willett, P.G.M. said that it would only cost each member there $2.00
so he asked all to put in $2.00. This was an opportunity they could not pass up.
   Gavin DeGrave, District Deputy #11 later announced that $1,414.65 was raised
and that the Grand Master’s head would be shaved tomorrow.

                          THREE PILLARS REPORT
R.W. Roger Magoon, Senior Grand Warden and Liaison;

   “Most Worshipful Grand Master, Grand Lodge officers, brethren, distinguished
guests it is my honor to be here today to represent our Three Pillars Senior Retirement
Communities. As the Grand Lodge representative to the Wisconsin Masonic Home
Board of Directors, I can relate that this has been an active year full of discussion and
planning for our outstanding senior campus. Mark Strautman, our President and
CEO has been with us for little over a year and the board has been strategically
focused on our future. Mark is unable to be with us at this Grand Lodge. He is in
Michigan being installed as the new president for the Masonic Homes Executive
Association of North America, an honor that further demonstrates Three Pillars’
reputation among our nations Masonic homes. Theta Andres our board chairman is
also in Michigan to support Mark in this huge honor. Both send their thanks to all
who supported our campus and our residents over the past year.”

   “A key to our strategic focus over the past year has been the planning for our new
assisted living facility, a facility that will establish a dynamic new approach to
assisted living in Wisconsin in blending the traditions built through decades at the
Wisconsin Masonic Home with the growing needs of today’s aging seniors. Three
Pillars is developing a program of catered living. Included in your packets today is
an informational case statement of this new facility. I encourage you to review this
information and share it with others in your lodge. Our current plans call for
construction to begin this fall with a grand opening in early 2006. The Three Pillars
Annual Report can be found, beginning on page 9 of your Pre-Proceedings. At this
time I respectfully request that this report be received and accepted into the record of
this Annual Communication”.

Report accepted.

          THREE PILLARS SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITIES
                      ANNUAL REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  Three Pillars is proud to present this annual report to the delegates of this year’s
Annual Communication. Our fraternity can take extreme pride in the quality of care
and services provided to the residents of our Three Pillars facilities:

   Wisconsin Masonic Home                            MasonWoods
   Masonic Village on the Square                     Riverside Lodge
   Masonic Health Care Center

   Our Directors, on each respective Board, have given greatly of their time and
efforts, and we owe them our thanks and gratitude for their dedication and serious
ownership of their fiduciary responsibilities.

   It has been an active and exciting year for all the stakeholders of our organiza-
tions, as the significant decisions and processes, initiated this year, will have lasting
positive effects for generations to come. The clearest example of this was the
successful refinancing of outstanding debt in October, 2003. This refinancing will
save Three Pillars significant annual interest expense over the next 23 years. Next



                                           69
year alone, the organization will see a $220,000 interest expense savings. During
the refinancing process, Three Pillars was successful in pursuing and receiving an
A- credit rating through Fitch, a leading global rating agency. In addition to the
positive effect on our bond rates, this is certainly a new source of pride, because of
the extreme scrutiny that senior retirement communities come under in a rating
process. Only 14 retirement communities in the United States have achieved an A
category rating by Fitch.
  “Attention to market demands” could be suggested as a major theme for manage-
ment this year. As part of our Assisted Living planning process, two in-depth market
analysis studies were completed during 2003. A local, general public market
demand study for assisted living and a state-wide fraternal market assessment
were completed. Both provided clear direction for future planning and illustrated
support for Three Pillars in both fraternal and non-fraternal markets. These serve
as solid footing for Board decisions related to on-going development of the Assisted
Living services.
   Management also identified a need to better communicate and partner with the
Fraternity, in an effort to successfully achieve our mission. As part of a management
restructuring, a Fraternal Relations position was created to better directly meet
these increased goals, and we hope that individuals and lodges will be better served
through this effort. Specific efforts have also been made to improve communications
with the Grand Lodge in an effort to establish a partnership for the successful future
of Wisconsin freemasonry. I would like to thank and commend our Most Worshipful
Grand Master DeWolf for his openness and determination in achieving this
partnership, as well as his dedication to the provision of quality services for our
residents. It has been an honor to serve the fraternity under his leadership.
   The market studies conducted in 2003 provided the necessary customer input
needed to proceed with our Assisted Living development. We asked current and
future retirees about their retirement services needs and clearly heard what they
had to say. Among other issues, Wisconsin seniors, fraternal included, expressed a
strong desire for independence in a non-institutional setting that best mirrors their
own home in comfort, freedom and adaptability. It became evident that the existing
direction of our previous assisted living plan was not in keeping with the wishes of
our future customers.
  With this in mind, in December, 2003 the Wisconsin Masonic Home Board of
Directors adopted a model of “Catered Living” as the chosen direction for the needed
improvement on the Three Pillars campus. Catered Living focuses on providing an
independent residential atmosphere of “flexibility and aging with choice” with all
the necessary support functions and spaces to discreetly “cater” personal and health
services to residents, as they need them. This concept, new to Wisconsin but
successful elsewhere, will differ from the traditional assisted living model that is
built around staff efficiency and convenience, and is driven by an assumption that
residents are dependent on staff for many daily activities. Our dynamic Catered
Living approach will also encourage and invite couples to retire to Three Pillars
together, when one spouse needs some level of assistance and the other spouse
remains fully independent. We are excited about this progressive approach and
proud that it continues the tradition of Three Pillars dedication to the highest
quality of services.

  Several additional issues are being addressed related to this development




                                         70
direction. The existing Wisconsin Masonic Home - Van Brunt Hall, built in the early
1900’s is just not practical as a location for this dynamic evolution of services.
Therefore, a task force is in process of evaluating the best future use of the building
that has been home to many masons over the past eight decades. Management and
the Board are also currently assessing the best location on the Dousman campus for
the site of the new facility.

  In addition, The Masonic Village on the Square Board of Directors is evaluating
and initiating a repositioning plan for this facility to address the anticipated
impacts of the new Catered Living facility, as well as the growing and changing
demographics of western Waukesha County. This repositioning plan could include
some physical plant updating, service plan evaluation, and new target marketing
approaches.

   We are enthusiastic that all these combined efforts will ensure that Three Pillars
will remain a leader in retirement services in Southeastern Wisconsin and nation-
ally among the fraternal family.

   Our Masonic Health Care Center and Riverside Lodge continue to provide a
strong base for the Three Pillars reputation by providing unmatched quality health
care to those residents in need. This is further exemplified by their on-going
outstanding inspection results through the rigorous State of Wisconsin licensing
enforcement process. We are very proud of our dedicated staff that continuously
demonstrates our mission of caring, high quality service.

   MasonWoods, on beautiful Shawano Lake, exemplifies peaceful retirement living.
Its 150 acres of nature provide the ideal backdrop for the active retirees that call
it home. MasonWoods now maintains full occupancy, so it is highly suggested that
those interested in this casual but active retirement living option make a visit and
formally list their interest. The waiting list will only grow larger, as more and more
seniors learn of this wonderful jewel in northern Wisconsin.

  On a personal note, I wish to thank everyone who has welcomed my family and
helped make my transition back to Wisconsin such a comfortable experience. While
my seven years at the Michigan Masonic Home were enjoyable and successful,
there’s no place like home. I am excited to be home, and with the direction we have
set this past year, I am sincerely looking forward to many more successful years at
Three Pillars.

                                                              Fraternally submitted,

                                                                 Mark A. Strautman,
                                                                   President & CEO

To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  This has been a most interesting year for me. The year has included many emails,
phone calls, meetings and miles put on my car to attend these meetings. As I look
back it has all been worth it and there are so many people to thank.

  Working with the Wisconsin Masonic Home Board has been the greatest. I have
served on this Board for several years and while there have been great members on
the Board before I must say this is an outstanding Board. The blend of backgrounds
and expertise that each and every member brings to the Board adds so much. The



                                          71
devotion and belief in Three Pillars welfare is evident in every meeting. Each
member of the Board have “gone the extra mile” in service to Three Pillars. Thanks
and appreciation also needs to be extended to those serving on the subordinate
Boards, committees and Task Forces. Again you are just the best. You give so much
as you help in your respective appointments. As these members represent the
various Masonic organizations they serve, you should be very proud of them and
know they deserve your faith and trust.

   The Building on a Vision campaign helpers have been working very hard as we
struggle to reach our goal for monetary pledges and gifts. Former Governor, Brother
Lee Sherman Dreyfus and Past Grand Master, Brother Bob Moore have been an
inspiration as they have lead this campaign. It is my hope that each of the members
of the Masonic bodies will help us with our Building on a Vision campaign.

  As I stated in my opening paragraph, this has been an interesting year. It has also
been a demanding year. The Board has worked hard to make the right decisions.
Professionals with expertise nationally in the senior care field have been brought in
to share that expertise. Management have used this information where ever
possible for our needs and shared it with the Home Board. This information has
helped the Board make good decisions for Three Pillars future. Some of these
decisions were difficult to make but keeping in mind the Mission Statement of Three
Pillars, they were made.

   I’m sorry I am not able to share this report with you personally. Mark Strautman
and I along with other staff members are attending the conference of the Masonic
Homes Executives Association of North America being held in Michigan. There are
two very important reasons for us to be here. Three Pillars will be hosting this
conference in Wisconsin in 2006 and we need insight into our responsibilities as
hosts. The second is something each Mason in Wisconsin should be very proud of.
Brother Mark Strautman will be installed as President of this association at this
conference. His knowledge of the senior care field, deep thinking, and determination
to do things right have really been an asset to Three Pillars.

  Thank you to Brother Roger Magoon for presenting this report and for your
participation on the Home Board.

   In closing I would like to personally thank my peers on the Wisconsin Masonic
Home Board, including the Grand Lodge representatives, for their support and
confidence in electing and entrusting me as Chair this past year. As the first Eastern
Star representative on the Board to become Chair, I see that a true sense of fraternal
family now resides on our Boards, just as it has in our facilities for the past century.
I am confident that with this united focus on organizational vision and our CEO’s
ability to encourage partnership with Grand Lodge leadership, together we will be
able to keep Three Pillars moving in a positive direction.

                                                         On behalf of Three Pillars,

                   REMARKS ON BEHALF OF SHRINE
Ill. Sir John Thorstad, Potentate of Zor Shrine;

   “Most Worshipful Grand Master distinguished guests, brothers all, I am John
Thorstad, Potentate of Zor Shrine in Madison. It is an honor to bring greetings to this
the 160th annual Grand Lodge communications on behalf of Dennis Korth, Potentate
of Beja Shrine in Green Bay and Jim Christie, Potentate of Tripoli Shrine in
Milwaukee and approximately 5,700 Shrine Masons here in Wisconsin.”

   “Shrine is known as the world’s greatest philanthropy. We as members support 22
hospitals for children with orthopedics, burns and spinal cord injuries throughout
North America. We do this all free of charge up until their 18th birthday. There are
18 orthopedic hospitals, 3 burn hospitals and 1 hospital in Sacramento, CA that does
all three. Our 2004 budget for our hospitals is $596,000,000 of which $25,000,000 is
for research, $42,000,000 goes for building and equipment, and the rest is for the
hospitals themselves, the operations, the doctors and their staff. Yesterday I had the
opportunity to represent Zor down at the rededication of our Chicago hospital. A 4-
year project of renovation for the cost of $32,400,000, will produce an addition of
another operating room, an in-patient wing, therapy pool, out-patient clinic and
remodeling of the lobby, dining room, admissions office and adapted living apart-
ments”

  “M.W. Grand Master, on behalf of all of us, we congratulate you for the very
successful year that you have had. Deputy Grand Master, we wish you the best of luck
next year and we are all there to support you. Thank you.”

         WISCONSIN MASONIC BENEVOLENT ACTIVITIES
                     BOARD REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

Mission and Overview
   The Wisconsin Masonic Benevolent Activities Board was created by the Grand
Lodge at its annual communication in 1991. The Benevolent Activities Board
oversees and coordinates Masonic charitable activities in Wisconsin, including
those of the office of the Director of Development for Masonic Charities. The Board
has 15 members that include the Grand Master, the other five elected Grand Lodge
officers, the Chairman of the Grand Trustees, and eight other qualified Masons
elected by the Craft at the Annual Communication for three-year staggered terms.

  The Benevolent Activities Board is a policy making body avoiding day-to-day
management of the constituent charities. These charities consist of the Wisconsin
Masonic Home, Inc, the Masonic Foundation of Wisconsin which includes the
Medical Fund, the Board of Masonic Service and Assistance and the Wisconsin
Masonic Soccer Foundation, Inc. It oversees their long range plans, their investment
performance, their budgets, and elects the members of the Board of the Home and
the Foundations. The Board coordinates their fund raising activities to avoid
conflicts. All such activities must be approved by the Board. Any and all land
acquisitions, building construction or other capital expenditures in excess of
$50,000 require Benevolent Activities Board approval as well.

  The Board meets quarterly in addition to the annual meeting held during the
Annual Communication.

Achievements this Year
  Gifts to all the benevolences totaled $1,342,241 for the fiscal year ended April 30,
2004. The following are some of the highlights:

  During fiscal 2003-4, the Medical Fund sponsored 45 new defibrillators through
Project ADAM. To date, we have placed 186 in Wisconsin schools. 16% of Wisconsin



                                         74
lodges participated in the Project ADAM program during the past Masonic year.
This was a financial commitment totaling $150,878.31.

  In early 2004, a life was saved in Chippewa Falls when an Eau Claire basketball
coach went down during a game. A defibrillator was present and he was revived.
This unit was placed through a matching grant from the Wisconsin Masonic
Foundation Medical Fund in partnership with Chippewa Falls Lodge. Chippewa
Falls Lodge has now placed a defibrillator in every high school in Chippewa County.

  The matching funds scholarship program of the Wisconsin Masonic Foundation
continued its success in 2004. 377 scholarships were awarded, totaling over
$211,000. 157 of the 199 Wisconsin Lodges, or 79% participated. Since this program
was instituted 26 years ago, the Masonic Foundation has helped over 7,000 students
realize their educational dreams.

  The Board of Masonic Service and Assistance helped 9 brethren in need and
continued to support the veteran’s hospital visitation program and the Masonic
Service Association.

   The Building on Vision Campaign for Three Pillars continued its fundraising
efforts, raising just over $440,000.

  The Soccer Foundation enjoyed another successful pair of games in July of 2003.
Fundraising and planning efforts continue as they look toward the 2004 games to
be held on July 31st.

  More detailed information will undoubtedly be available from the individual
entities in their annual reports to the Grand Lodge.

Development Office
   We were very sorry to accept the resignation of our Development Director, Gary
Beier, who left to take a similar position with another foundation. He was an
integral part of our efforts and we will miss him. We found him to be very cooperative
and successful in achieving our goals. We wish him success in his new position.

  A committee was formed consisting of representatives from the Board and from
the constituent charities to assess our situation and make recommendations to the
Board for their direction in the future. This committee felt that this would be an
appropriate time to review our mission, goals, objectives, and strategies and
recommended that a strategic plan be developed for the Benevolent Activities of the
Grand Lodge. In their opinion, the Development office was in capable hands with
Erika Miller, the Development Coordinator, to run the day-to-day functions with the
cooperation of the subordinate charities. The Benevolent Activities Board agreed
with this assessment and authorized the formation of a Strategic Planning Commit-
tee to consist of representatives from each of the Charities and the Grand Lodge.
This committee has been formed consisting of Michael DeWolf representing Grand
Lodge, Mark Strautman representing the Masonic Home, George Strom represent-
ing the Board of Masonic Service and Assistance, Michael Koscinski representing
the Foundation, and Stephen Prewitt also representing the Grand Lodge. This
committee will make a preliminary report at the quarterly meeting of the Board on
September 25, 2004, and a final report at the quarterly meeting on December 18,
2004.




                                         75
   I want to thank all the members of the Board for their input and assistance this
past year. Especially, I want to thank John Schunk who has completed his service
to the Board and is forced to retire. He was an extremely valuable asset to this Board
and added greatly to it. I also want to thank Gary Beier and Erika Miller for their
cooperation in making my position much easier to fulfill. They contributed much
toward making this a successful year in achieving our fundraising objectives.

                   WISCONSIN MASONIC FOUNDATION
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  Your Wisconsin Masonic Foundation and its Board of Directors have had another
busy and most rewarding year. The positive changes in the investment market plus
the realized generosity of donors to our various funds has permitted continued
funding of a number of your projects while increasing our total asset value at the
same time.

   The specific financial details are given in the Auditor’s Report, which is presented
in the Annual Proceedings. Let me state, however, that as of March 31, 2004, the
total value of all assets for which this Board is responsible were $21,371,222.78
versus a reported amount, as of last February 23, 2003, of $17,206.799.00. We are
pleased with these results and with all of the additional monies that were spent in
support of your committed projects.




                                          76
   Project ADAM, Matching Scholarships, Medical Fund Grants, Masonic Home
financial support and other contributions have involved the Wisconsin Masonic
membership in the life saving and community life of our great state of Wisconsin.
We should all be proud of our charitable work as Masons through the activity of your
Foundation.

  Since our last Annual Communication, the Foundation has funded forty-five (45)
new installations of Automatic External Defibrillators under the Project ADAM
Program. Thirty-one (31) of our lodges were involved with these grants, which
represented a $150,878.30 total gift from your Foundation.

   The goal of placing at least one defibrillator in each of the five hundred and ten
(510) Wisconsin high schools identified in 1999, when the project was initiated, is
well under way! As of this writing, partnering with individual Lodges and others,
we have encouraged and supported the placement of one hundred eighty-five (185)
of these life-saving devices.

   Recent incidents of lives saved in Chippewa Falls and elsewhere, have been the
impetus required to aid the cities of Milwaukee and Madison to make a commitment
to seek support from us.

   Wisconsin Masons have been the recognized leaders with their Project ADAM.
Not only have we been given this recognition, but also our efforts have resulted in
encouraging and driving the cost of these AEDs down! When we started, the cost of
each AED was about $4,000.00 plus an additional cost of $40.00 for each person
trained at placement. Today, we are seeing costs in the area of less than $1500.00
for each AED, which is allowing us to accomplish greater good with less dollars
invested.

  Your support of continuing education through the “Matching Funds Scholar-
ships” for 2004 is another program in which we as Wisconsin Masons can be pleased
with our results. One hundred and fifty seven (157) of our total of one hundred and
ninety nine (199) Lodges participated in this Program. Three hundred and seventy
seven (377) Scholarships were given. We congratulate those Lodges who partici-
pated this year and encourage others to give consideration to this worthwhile effort!

   The previous merger of the Medical Foundation of Wisconsin, Inc. into the
Wisconsin Masonic Foundation as the Masonic Medical Fund of Wisconsin has
proven to be the cost saving effort expected without any apparent negative effect on
its excellent reputation for doing good or its ability to attract additional contribu-
tions. We are doing the same, if not more, “Good Works” under the name of the
Masonic Medical Fund of Wisconsin!

  We are also pleased with the results of accepting the corpus of the Glenn and
Gertrude Humphrey Foundation into your Wisconsin Masonic Foundation as the
Humphrey Fund. Loraine Schuffler, continues as a special advisor to us on the
suggested use of these assets at this time and we are grateful for her experience and
contribution in this regard. She is a valuable friend and advisor!

  The Board continues to be well served by Alpha Consulting as our investment
advisors. We were and remain well balanced in both the equity (65%) and fixed (35%)
markets. This has contributed to our realizing the benefits of the present market in
what we believe is a prudent diversification of the funds for which we as a Board



                                         77
have fiduciary responsibility.

  This year has marked the departure of Brother Gary Beier as our Director of
Development. He has served us well and we wish him every success in his new
opportunity with the Wisconsin Auto and Truck Dealer’s Foundation.

  We are most fortunate to have the benefit of the talents and dedication of Erika
Miller, Scott Graske and the entire Grand Lodge officers and Staff in meeting our
responsibilities to all of you. Our work could not be done without the spirit of
commitment and contribution that they and so many others make to this charitable
work!

  On behalf of your entire Board, We Thank All of You for your contributions
of Time, Talent and Treasure!

                                                        Sincerely and fraternally,

                                                   Norm Christensen, President
                                            Wisconsin Masonic Foundation Board

Report accepted.

             REMARKS ON BEHALF OF SCOTTISH RITE
Ill. Brother Norman L. Christensen, 33°, Grand Minister of State and Deputy for
Scottish Rite in Wisconsin;

  “Thank you very much for what you have given to us and not only to the Scottish
Rite Masons, but to all of us as Masons in the State of Wisconsin. That is the
wonderful gift of an example of a Grand Master who believes in our values, who is
well received beyond the borders of Wisconsin. Everywhere he has traveled, my
brothers, he has brought an expansion of the fine reputation of the State of Wisconsin
and we thank you so much for that gift. I stand ready to work with you, Brother Keith,
as you continue to build on that reputation.”

                               PRESENTATION
Norman L. Christensen, President, Wisconsin Masonic Foundation;

  “I would like to have Worshipful Brother and Chaplain Ray Heilborn join me at
the podium. We believe that one of the reasons we were successful with the return on
investments last year was no doubt due in no small way to the prayers of our chaplain,
who has also served us well as a member of our Foundation Board. Brother Ray, on
behalf of the Board and on behalf of this Grand Lodge, I present to you at this time
this plaque, which reads, ‘In recognition of your dedication to promoting Masonic
charity. With gratitude for your efforts toward the advancement of all of Freema-
sonry, this plaque is presented to you on June 14, 2004.’ My brother, thank you for
your service to the Foundation Board and to this Craft.”

        WISCONSIN MASONIC JOURNAL BOARD REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  Beginning with a sound budget plan and culminating with the improvement of
our overall product, your Wisconsin Masonic Journal continues its tradition of
quality, efficiency and service to the craft.

   The board began it’s labor this past year with an eye toward cost control and a
number of items were taken up to facilitate that end. With the formation of a Long
Range Planning Committee, items were discussed ranging from ad rates, use of
color, number of issues per calendar year and percentage of ad space allocated
among others. A Readership Survey was also finalized and placed before the
membership for their input and guidance.

  The Masonic NewsHawk Program continues to grow with individual Lodges
providing photos and copy for publication. It is hoped that this program will become
an integral part of each Lodge’s yearly planning.

  Among the immediate plans for your Journal is a computer and software upgrade,
which will allow for cost savings in production of the publication. As technology
continues to improve, the Journal must also continue to upgrade its equipment in
order to provide the quality publication Wisconsin’s Freemasons have come to
expect.

  In the face of these expenses, the Board was pleased to submit a budget this year
which again reflects an overall reduction in costs. It should be noted that such
savings are in no small way due to the excellent stewardship shown by Journal
Publisher William L. Stonecipher. His keen attention to detail along with Advertis-
ing Manager Diane Igl’s advertising and promotional abilities, have proven to be
valuable assets as we strive to put forth the best possible publication for Wisconsin’s
Masonic Fraternity.

                                                             Respectfully submitted,

                                                   Keith D. Chamberlain, President
                                                     William L. Stonecipher, Editor
                                                             Trueman E. Farris Jr.
                                                                  John K. Shannon
                                                                  Keith H. Harmon
                                                                   James E. Walsh

Report accepted.

                                PRESENTATION
 William Stonecipher, Editor of the Wisconsin Masonic Journal presented Grand
Master Michael DeWolf with a bound book of the Masonic Journals for the past year.

of Knights Templar of Wisconsin;




                                          95
   “Worshipful Grand Master, distinguished guests, brethren all, it is certainly a
pleasure and an honor for me to be here to represent the York Rite of Freemasonry.
My companions from the Grand Council and the Grand Chapter give their greetings.
We certainly as a body congratulate you on your excellent year. It has been a pleasure
for me to work with you. We look forward to working with Keith in the future.”

              by Jack E. Keyes, Secretary, Milwaukee-Harmony Lodge #261

Section(s) Affected: Section 57.07

                               PRESENTATIONS
  Grand Master DeWolf called upon Most Worshipful Brother Richard Fletcher,
P.G.M. of Vermont and Director of the Masonic Service Association and M.W. Bro.
Beecher Daniels, P.G.M., to come to the East.

M.W. Brother Richard Fletcher;

   “Good afternoon brothers. Thanks very much for the opportunity to bring you
brothers up to date on some of the things that are going on at the MSA. You mentioned
Brother Beecher, and brothers if you get a chance, shake this man’s hand and pat him
on the back and thank him for the wonderful work he is doing as coordinator for MSA
here in Wisconsin. We have one of our best programs here and we are very proud of
all that goes on in the VA hospitals. I want you to understand that MSA is the seventh
largest volunteer group out of fifty-six registered with the VAVS nationally. We do in
excess of two hundred and fifty thousand volunteer hours a year. Many of those hours
happen right here in Wisconsin. We are proud of that and proud of the support that
you folks have given us over the years. It is just wonderful.

   There are a couple of other things that I would just like to bring to your attention.
We are involved in a program that MSA has partnered with the USO to send to our
troops serving overseas, particularly Iraq, Afghanistan and the Balkan., These are
one hundred minute pre-paid telephone cards so that the troops will have an



                                          96
opportunity to call home. These cards were prepared by MSA, but we did it on behalf
of America’s Freemasons. When you see the phone card, on it is a logo of the USO and
the logo of AT&T. To the left of it, superimposed over the American flag, is a square
and compasses and the words, “Compliments of America’s Freemasons. MSA, acting
on behalf of all Freemasons in this country has entered into this program and I am
very proud to tell you that these cards are going overseas right now. If you would like
to be part of the program, and you would like to send something to MSA to do it, just
put on the check “Operation Phone Home” and we will see that it gets to the USO. It’s
a guarantee, 100% of all of the money that comes in goes to this program.

   “Also, we are seeing many, many troops that have been injured in Walter Reed
Army Medical Center. Our office is a mile from Walter Reed and we do have a visitor
over there. If you know of anyone who is there, they don’t have to be a Mason, if you
have a grandson or a nephew or a friend, or you know of someone at Walter Reed or
Bethesda Naval, please let us know. We have worked with some of the families
helping get dependents into the Fisher House. There are now two Fisher Houses at
Walter Reed and we have some contacts where we can help dependents get in there
while they are there with their loved ones. It would really make you proud if you could
go into the hospital with us and talk to these young folks. I am talking about people
lying there in bandages, hurting. We saw one young man two weeks ago. He was in
a Humvee accident where the vehicle was so badly mangled that they didn’t know if
anyone would survive, but he did. He couldn’t talk, his jaw was wired and we saw
him two weeks later and he is sitting in a chair. He was bandaged, his shoulders hurt
and his legs are hurt and he said the same thing every other young person has said
when we’ve seen them, “I just wish I could heal faster. I want to get back to my unit.”
We should be very proud of these young people. The young man I just spoke to you
about happened to be a Mason in Mississippi, but it doesn’t matter whether they are
Masons or not. We go over and see them. If you have anyone there, please let us know
and we will see that they get visited and if you give us an email, we will let you know
what happened as a result of that visit.”

   “I am going to close my comments to you with this, sometimes we get questions at
the office about what do Masons really do. If you ever get that questions, the first
suggestion I would make to you is to look at the questioner and say, “How much time
do you have? If you really want to know what Masons do, this is going to take awhile.”
What I would suggest is just from what has happened here today, just what you have
heard from the reports, just from what you realize Freemasons are doing in the
community, in the state, in the nation, that has got to make you swell with pride to
know that we are carrying on the tradition of a fraternity that helped form this
country and is helping to keep this country strong and viable today. I don’t care if it’s
charity or philanthropy or leadership in the community, or setting an example with
young people, Freemasons are at the forefront, carrying on the heritage that we got
from our past and now it’s our turn. What will be said of us in fifty years as to what
our generation did to make our fraternity better and stronger? It truly is in our hands.
Be proud to be a Mason.”

   “I have asked Beecher to be part of this presentation because, and I am serious
about this, he really does such a terrific job for us and we are proud to have him part
of it. Grand Master, we are also proud that you are one terrific guy. We said about you
earlier that you made a great impression all across the country and that is true, you
did. The Brothers need to know that. You are a leader in Wisconsin, but you are a
leader in Freemasonry. ‘The Masonic Service Association of North America, beheld



                                           97
how good and how pleasant it is for Brethren to work together in unity. This is a
certificate of appreciation presented to Michael A. DeWolf, Grand Master of Wiscon-
sin in sincere appreciation of your abiding interest in and strong support for the
Masonic Service Association’s programs. You have given time to our national
hospital visitation program by personally visiting hospitalized veterans and you
have encouraged the MSA representatives, deputies and volunteers of Wisconsin.
With this certificate go our best wishes for continued success in service to our gentle
craft.’ Grand Master it is a pleasure to present this to you and tell you how much we
appreciate all you did for MSA and our veterans and our programs. Through you we
thank the brothers of Wisconsin for their support as well.”

  Past Grand Master Beecher Daniels asked the members to go out of their way to
thank the brothers who were volunteering at the VA hospitals in their area. He said
they still needed a representative for the VA hospital in King, WI and they always
needed veteran visitation volunteers.

   Grand Master DeWolf explained how he really appreciated and admired the
hours these volunteers put in at the VA hospitals and especially all the help he has
gotten from Beecher Daniels. He sincerely appreciates the work Beecher has done
and continues to do, along with his wife Doris. He presented Past Grand Master
Beecher Daniels with the Grand Master’s Certificate of Meritorious Masonic
Service for his more than thirty-six years of service to Freemasonry, for his
outstanding support and dedication to Symbolic Freemasonry, for donating count-
less hours of time and service to our veterans at the VA hospitals and for working
to create a better understanding of our obligation to the Masonic veterans.

                                    REMARKS
  Grand Master DeWolf called forward the Grand Master of Morocco Bouchlaib El
kouhi. He apologized for his English and said that he was happy to be there. He
reminded them that they have a Brother in Morocco and hoped they would visit
them so they could return the hospitality.

                        CHARTER PRESENTATION
   Grand Master DeWolf called forward the members of Unity Lodge No. 367. He
presented to them the charter of the new consolidation and explained how successful
the blending of these two lodges has been. He congratulated them and asked them
to display the charter proudly for many years to come.

                                PRESENTATION
M.W. Brother Raymond P. Bellini, Past Grand Master and Grand Secretary of New
Jersey:

  “I would like to extend to you the warm fraternal greetings of Daniel M. Wilson our
Grand Master. I know you and Dan have become great friends and he wanted so
much to be here, but his schedule would not permit it and I am delighted that he gave
me the opportunity to come.”

   On behalf of the Grand Master and the Freemasons of the State of New Jersey,
he read a presentation and commission that agreed to the appointment of Michael
A. DeWolf as the Grand Representative of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of New



                                          98
Jersey near the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin.

                         CHARTER PRESENTATIONS
   Grand Master DeWolf called forward the representatives of Belle City Lodge No.
18 to receive their Charter. He described them as another successful example of a
lodge consolidation. He presented the officers of the lodge with their new charter and
said he hoped they would continue to be successful in the growth of the fraternity
in Racine, WI.

   Grand Master DeWolf then called the representatives of Southern Lakes Lodge
No. 12 to come forward to receive their Charter. He is looking forward to good things
from their new consolidated lodge.

                                      REMARKS
William Feingold, Grand Representative from the Grand Lodge of New York;

   “Most Worshipful Grand Master, distinguished guests, brothers all, I would like
to report that my trip to this convention, for the first time, has left me breathless. Every
time I meet a brother I get asked, what’s going on in New York. Well, it has been an
interesting year to say the least. We do not say lay that pistol down babe. That brother
has been suspended until a report of a fact-finding commission makes its formal
report to the Grand Master. Even though the Grand Master has talked to the victims
wife on several occasions, and a number of lodges have donated money to a fund, we
are holding back slightly because there is the possibility that the Grand Lodge will
be sued for a great deal of money. If that is the case you don’t pay for her legal bills.
The District Deputy Grand Master of that jurisdiction has been suspended, the
Master of the lodge has been suspended, the brother has been suspended, all of the
members of that “Fellowcraft Club” have been suspended. We had a Grand Master’s
Edict that we thought was already in existence, that no firearms are allowed in a
Masonic building, but evidently no one could find the written record of that edict. As
a sidelight, we have one lodge in New York City called Garibaldi. It is made up of
Italian-Americans. They do their lodge work in Italian. We have numerous of the
police force and the FBI that are members. We also have members that are from the
other side. All of those brothers leave their guns with the Tiler and it is a considerable
pile. It does turn out that there was a massive police call and a number of the beepers
went off and all the policemen got up and ran out of the lodge room and had difficulty
finding their firearms, but finally they were able to sort it out. That’s as far as arms
have been in the lodge that I know of.”

   “I bring you the greeting of our new Grand Master who visited this annual meeting
two years ago, the M.W. Ed Trogen. He is a wonderful, wonderful man, low-key, great
sense of humor, but is very, very, very firm in his beliefs and is going to be a very strong
leader. He let us know in no uncertain terms that we are going to be a lodge on the
up-swing. As a matter of fact, last year, for the first time, we showed a plus in terms
of the quotient of brothers that have passed or demitted or whatever and the brothers
that have joined. The average age of our brothers has decreased considerably,
probably due to the success of last years one day class.”

  “This meeting has become a controversial meeting because I understand several
other members of the Grand Line wish to come in my stead, however the Grand
Master, knowing of my affection for Wisconsin has stood fast and allowed me to



                                            99
continue. For that I am very, very grateful. I look forward to seeing you all on a social
level, and more importantly I invite you all to New York, but not all at the same time.
I guarantee you a great time.”

                                     PRESENTATION
   Carl J. Wussow, Past Grand Master explained that there was something that he
wanted to do for a few years in remembrance of the start he had in Grand Lodge
under the appointment as Grand Tiler by Allan Iding, P.G.M. Many times he had
to track down a sword and in memory of that year of scrambling for a sword he
presented a new sword to the Grand Tiler to be used at Grand Lodge. Grand Tiler,
Mike Mouradian came forward and accepted the gift.

                             PRESENTATION ON IRAQ
   Grand Master DeWolf asked Brother Patrick Leon to give a presentation on his
year of military service in Iraq. Brother Leon is a member of Hiram Lodge No. 180
in South Portland, Maine and also a Wisconsin DeMolay staff member. He pre-
sented an eleven-minute video, which showed his experiences in the Middle East
while serving in the 432nd Civil Affairs Battalion, which is based in Green Bay, WI.

  Grand Master DeWolf asked all interested in asking questions regarding the
insurance coverage provided by Grand Lodge to stay for a seminar given by
Robertson Ryan and Associates, the insurance provider. He also asked for a “straw”
vote on the question of how many were happy with the current insurance program
and how many would like to procure their own insurance coverage.

  GRAND LODGE CALLED FROM LABOR TO REFRESHMENT
   Grand Master DeWolf introduced Charlie Johnson from Robertson Ryan who
handles the Grand Lodge’s insurance policy. The forum was opened to questions
from the representatives in attendance. Charlie Johnson and Pam Brahm explained
the coverage from St. Paul-Travelers Insurance along with a PowerPoint presenta-
tion.

                         REPRESENTATIVES BANQUET

Crosse Center Ballroom on the second floor. A buffet banquet preceded the

GRAND LODGE WAS CALLED FROM REFRESHMENT TO LABOR
  The Tuesday morning session began with a short prayer by Grand Chaplain Rev.
Ray Heilborn:

  “ Eternal Architect sustained by your grace, guided by your spirit, and upheld by
your love, we come together in this meeting for the purpose of continuing our
deliberations but more especially of ending them in peace and harmony, so give us
your grace. Amen.”

             REMARKS FROM DISTINGUISHED GUESTS
Nicholas Schultz, Worth Grand Patron, Wisconsin Order of Eastern Star;

   “Most Worshipful Grand Master, Grand Lodge officers, Past Grand Masters,
distinguished guests and brothers, on behalf of Karen S. Stauffer, Worthy Grand
Matron of the Order of Eastern Star in Wisconsin, I bring you greetings. Karen would
have liked to address this group and if she could have she would have thanked all of
the Masons in Wisconsin. Without the Masons and the Masonic heritage that it brings
we would not have an Order of the Eastern Star. I am very pleased to say that I
recognize and know probably a third of the people in this room, but that means that



                                                 101
two thirds of you probably aren’t members of the Order of the Eastern Star. We
certainly would like to see that happen. If anybody is interested, see me. I have
petitions.”

   “We are pleased to give you our congratulations on a wonderful year and look
forward to working with Brother Keith in the coming year.”

Richard J. Reilly, Grand Royal Patron of the Order of Amaranth;

   “Most Worshipful Grand Master, Past Grand Master, distinguished guests,
brothers all, it is really great to be here. I am speaking for our Grand Royal Matron
Linda Hohlstein. She gave me a couple of paragraphs and at this time I will read
them. ‘The membership of the Order of the Amaranth consists of Master Masons, their
qualified female relatives and majority members of Job’s Daughters and Rainbow for
Girls. Membership in the Order of the Amaranth is based on the belief in a Supreme
Being and members are encouraged to practice the principles of truth, faith, wisdom
and charity. Unlike Eastern Star who has five star points, we have four ladies of the
square who are known as Honored Ladies. Men are known as Sir Knights. Our order
has one primary philanthropy, which is diabetes. Through the efforts of our members
we spread information on this dreaded disease and helped individuals to improve
their lives. In 1977 the Supreme Council of the order of Amaranth established the
Amaranth Diabetes Foundation. Since it’s inception we have raised over $7,000,000
to fund research grants working in conjunction with the American Diabetes Associa-
tion, who annually selects recipients for our grants. All of the money raised by the
Amaranth members goes directly into this research as an organization. No admin-
istration costs are taken from these funds, thus making it possible for us to give the
maximum for this very important work. We are hopeful that our efforts will find a
cure for this dreaded disease very soon.’”

   “At this time I would like to congratulate you, Most Worshipful Brother Mike on
a fantastic year. You have been a very visible Grand Master. Every where I go, you
are there before I am. It has been very good for the Craft and I congratulate you on
you short retirement. Brother Keith didn’t take any time at all putting you to work.
Again, I want to thank you for all of the considerations for my wife Mary Lou and me
and we wish you God’s speed.”

            FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin

      Grand Lodge of Washington DC (District of Columbia) and
 Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge F. & A.M. of Wisconsin, Inc.

  Pursuant to the recommendation of its Masonic Recognitions Committee, in May
2004, the Grand Lodge of Washington DC (District of Columbia) has recognized any
Prince Hall Grand Lodge that does not state that it does not want to be recognized
and which is currently recognized by the Grand Lodge in its jurisdiction recognized
by the Grand Lodge of Washington DC (District of Columbia), subject to two
conditions. The first is that the Grand Lodge already recognized does not object. The
second is that the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of District of Columbia does not object.

   The Foreign Relations Committee recommends to the Grand Lodge F. & A.M. of
Wisconsin that it not object to the recognition by the Grand Lodge of Washington DC
(District of Columbia) of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge F. & A.M.
of Wisconsin, Inc.

                             Grand Orient of Brazil

   By letter dated August 20, 2003, the Grande Oriente do Brasil has requested
recognition by the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin F. & A.M. The Grand Lodge of
Wisconsin recognized the Grande Oriente do Brasil in June 1997. The Foreign
Relations Committee recommends to the Grand Lodge F. & A.M. of Wisconsin that
following this Annual Communication the (new) Grand Secretary write to the
Grand Secretary of Grande Oriente do Brasil advising him of such recognition.

                          Grand Lodge of San Marino

  The Serenissima Gran Loggia di San Marino (which was consecrated in April
2003 by the Grande Oriente d’Italia and the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia)



                                        103
consists of three lodges formerly on the register of the Grande Oriente d’Italia. This
new grand lodge has requested recognition by the Grand Lodge F. & A.M. of
Wisconsin. The Commission on Information for Recognition of the Conference of the
Grand Masters of Masons in North America issued its opinion in February 2004 that
Serenissima Gran Loggia di San Marino meets the standards for recognition.

  Accordingly, the Foreign Relations Committee recommends that the Grand
Lodge F. & A.M. of Wisconsin recognize the Serenissima Gran Loggia di San
Marino.

           FRATERNAL RELATIONS WITH PRINCE HALL
                   COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   The Grand Lodge F. & A. M. of Wisconsin and the Most Worshipful Prince Hall
Grand Lodge F. & A. M. of Wisconsin, Inc. met on November 24, 2003 to discuss
matters of common interest and to enjoy fellowship as we have been doing for many
years. The senior Grand Lodge officers, certain Past Grand Masters, and interested
brethren from both Grand Lodges make up the representatives to this committee.
Frequently, officers of nearby constituent lodges are invited to attend. As a result
of these efforts our two Grand Lodges are in true accord.

   At this meeting plans were begun for a joint activity to be enjoyed the following
spring. This was developed into a table lodge which was held at the Prince Hall
Grand Lodge building in Milwaukee on March 31, 2004. It was planned and
implemented by officers of both Grand Lodges, but it was intended to be attended
by as many brethren from both as possible. It would be an understatement to say
that it was a great success. Attendance exceeded 150, all of whom expressed
happiness in having attended. It is intended to hold another such table lodge in the
spring of 2005 and it is expected that it will be enjoyed by even more brethren.
Through meetings of this type we are experiencing greater understanding between
the members of these two great Grand Lodges and making new friendships. We urge
as many brethren as possible to watch for the announcement of the next table lodge
and make every effort to participate. Special thanks go out to the brethren who
planned and carried out this activity.

   On an extremely sad note, during the year our chairman PGM Benjamin F.
Detroy was taken ill and passed on to the Grand Lodge above. He served as chairman
of this committee superbly for many years and leaves a huge void to try to fill.

                                                            Fraternally submitted

in the state of Wisconsin, although he was not in the room to receive it.

   Brother Norman L. Christensen was given the Grand Master’s Certificate of
Meritorious Masonic Service. He said a few words of thanks and encouraged all to

lodge more highly motivated and better educated to be all that they can be in the new
millennium.

DeWolf presented him with the Grand Master’s Certificate of Meritorious Masonic
Service. He thanked the Grand Master and said that he was very humbled.

hard work.

    MASONIC SERVICE AND ASSISTANCE BOARD REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free & Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   The Grand Lodge “Charity Fund” was established when the Wisconsin Grand
Lodge was chartered in 1843 and was originally administered by the Grand Master.
It has now been placed in the hands of the Board of Service & Assistance.

   Charity is one of our greatest attributes and the Board is concerned with the needs
of all of our brethren, their widows and families. We serve as a liaison to accomplish
assistance which all Masons would like to achieve but cannot always be done by
individual efforts.

  During the past Masonic year, The Board requested and received a budget of
$30,300 to support it’s activities. In addition, Grand Master Mike DeWolf’s Fall
Appeal and Director of Development Gary Beier’s fund raising efforts, an additional
$38,000 was raised. We wish to thank all who donated to this worthy cause to help
their Brothers in need.

  The main areas of assistance which the Board provided are:
  1) individual requests for assistance for Wisconsin Masons and their families.
  2) Masonic Volunteer Programs at all state Veterans Hospitals and Homes.
  3) Masonic Service Association (MSA) disaster relief appeals.

  Through February of 2004, the Board has approved expenses for these types of
assistance in the amount of over $31,000 for this Masonic year.

   All requests for assistance were evaluated and acted upon in accordance with
Chapter 40 of the Masonic Code of Wisconsin. All requests are referred to the Board
either by the Grand Master or the constituent lodge of which the applicant is a
member. Demonstrated support of an applicant by the lodge helps the Board in it’s
deliberations as the local lodge is in a better position to know all the circumstances.

  The Board of Service & Assistance is pleased to have completed another year of
service to the Craft and the Wisconsin needy Masons and their families.

  We were saddened by the passing of our long-time member PGM Ben Detroy. His
wise council and wit will be greatly missed. I wish to thank the other members of the
Board: Jim Fleming - Lowell Larson - PGM Larry Myers for their dedicated service



                                         107
and also welcome our new member Dan Slavik. Also appreciation to JGD John Wilke
and Grand Sec’y Bruce Sim, PGM.

  I also wish to thank Director of Development Gary Beier and Erika Miller and also
Grand Lodge Office Administrator Scott Graske and his staff for their council and
assistance.

  We are here to serve the Craft and hope we have succeeded in doing so. We
appreciate all the help we have received.

                                                             Fraternally submitted,

                      BOARD REPORT
  On July 26th, 2003 the Wisconsin Masonic Soccer Foundation sponsored the
Wisconsin All Star Senior High School Girls’ and Boys’ Soccer Games at the
Bavarian Inn, in Glendale, Wisconsin, which again, was very successful.

   The Wisconsin All Star Senior High School Girls’ and Boys’ Soccer Program
consists of 3 day’s of rewarding experiences for the young people who are fortunate
to be chosen.

   The first part of the program was a bus trip to the Shriners Hospital in Chicago
to visit and intermingle with the patients (wheel chair sports, basketball game, etc).

  The second part of the program is a scheduled soccer scrimmage with the Special
Olympians, but the Special Olympians had a special program that weekend and all
possible players were out of town, so the games were not held.

  The third and final part of the program is the buffet Banquet for the players and
then the Girls’ and Boys’ Soccer Games.

   The Soccer camp and games went off without any problems or major injuries, and
the weather cooperated for the 3 days our program. One of the girl players was
injured in a practice session, and could not compete in the Saturday Game. She had
arthoscopic surgery in her hometown two weeks later, and is doing fine. We had
plenty of substitutes, so there was not a problem for the coaches.

  The trip to the Shrine Hospital in Chicago was excellent, unfortunately, or shall
we say fortunately, there were not a lot of patients that could participate with our
players. One little girl was able to come down and our players played cards with her.
Another of our players spoke Spanish fluently so the player visited a patient from
Columbia.

  Our game day started with a breakfast buffet Banquet for the 72 Senior High All
Star Soccer Players of Wisconsin, their coaches, parents, and members of the
Masonic Soccer Foundation. Our guest speakers were Brother Michael A. De Wolf,
Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons of the State of Wisconsin, Brother Keith
D. Chamberlain, Worshipful Deputy Grand Master, Terry Donini, Wisconsin


                                         108
Coaches Association Representative and Brother Roger Magoon, Chairman of
Masonic Soccer Foundation.

   Each team had a representative from their team speak to the group about what
this event meant to them. Each representative thanked the Masons for giving him
or her the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful and rewarding experience.

  Brother Dave Tainter, the games coordinator, did an excellent job and the games
went off without a problem. There was between 400 and 500 spectators in the stands
watching and enjoying the best high school soccer players in Wisconsin.

  If you have never had the experience of being at one of our soccer games, or
recognition event, the foundation seriously urges you to do so. These young people
will make you proud that you have supported this program for the last 12 years.

  The Lodges who have soccer players selected to play in these games, are getting
more involved. They are having recognition programs in their lodges and participat-
ing in selling and purchasing advertising in the game program.

  The continuous support of the Wisconsin Senior All Star Girls’ and Boys’ Soccer
program is one way to keep our Masonic Fraternity in the communities through out
the state of Wisconsin.

               CODE REVISION COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin;

  The committee met August 29, 2003. We reviewed the proposed and accepted


                                       109
resolutions from the Grand Lodge session of June 9, 2003 to see if there were any
additions or corrections. There were none.

   The committee then discussed whether or not a complete reprint of the Code was
necessary because it has not been done since 1997. It was decided to place articles
in the Wisconsin Masonic Journal requesting suggested changes and submit them
for consideration. The articles were published and replies were received. A complete
reprint will be done after this years Grand Lodge Annual Communication.

  The committee met again on April 8, 2004 to consider the various proposed
changes. Many of the changes merely required correcting errors in the index and
correcting inconsistencies, which does not require approval from the membership,
only from the Grand Master. The rest of the changes were drafted as resolutions to
be presented at the Grand Lodges 160th Annual Communication in La Crosse.

                                  Respectfully submitted by the Code Committee,

                                                   Archie E. Simonson, Chairman
                                                             James H. Olson, PGM
                                                        George A. Wallinger, PGM

                   ESOTERIC COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin,

  The Esoteric Committee met twice during the 2003-2004 year. The first meeting
was held at Virginia Falls Lodge #226 in Merrill, Wisconsin. The second meeting
was held on October 12, 2003, at Forest Lodge #130 in Wausau, Wisconsin. In
addition to the Esoteric Committee members, Brothers Robert Strader and W.J.G.S.
Joe Harker, were also in attendance. The main topic of our meetings was to discuss
our M.W.G.M. Michael A. DeWolf’s program, the Masonic Daylight 2004. The
Esoteric Committee was charged with setting up degree teams for all three degrees,
including lectures and postings. They were a contact point for lodges to ask
questions, as this was an ongoing learning experience. For more information please
read the Masonic Daylight 2004 report.

   My thanks to all the District Lecturers, District Deputies, Br. Robert Strader,
W.J.G.S. Joe Harker (chairman of M.D.L. 2004), and M.W.G.M. Michael A. DeWolf
for making this event a great success. Other items that were discussed at our
meetings are as follows:

  1. Discussion on having a copy of the pure work given to the D.D.s so it would be
     more accessible.
  2. Sending out a copy of the “Code to Word” cross-reference to all D.L.s and to the
     lodge secretary.
  3. The committee decided the statewide School of Instruction wouldn’t be
     feasible.
  4. To have the D.L.s cover the posting examinations at all S.O.I.
  5. Questions concerning our ritual, so we are teaching it uniformly.
  6. Having D.L.s up-date Proficiency and Ritualist data and send it to Grand
     Lodge.


                                        110
   I again wish to emphasize the importance of proper due guards and signs. Always
remember our due guards are the position in which our hands were placed while
taking our obligations. There is no place in our ritual for slapping the Books of Laws.
When giving signs please remember to square them off. Practice the four-step
approach taught by the D.L.s. There will not be a room set aside at Grand Lodge for
the pure work this year due to lack of visitors in previous years. If interested please
ask a District Lecturer or District Deputy. The District Lecturers will again work
with the District Deputies to set up their Schools of Instruction in hopes of
alleviating having more than one event scheduled on any given day.

                                                             Respectfully submitted,

                                                                Davey L. White Jr.
                                                                   Grand Lecturer
                                                      Chairman Esoteric Committee

   GRAND MASONIC DAY-LIGHT 2004 COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  Saturday, April 3, 2004 was a great day for Wisconsin Freemasonry.

   The Grand Masonic Day-Light (MDL) 2004 Committee is composed of R.W.D.G.M.
Keith D. Chamberlain, W.G.L. Davey L. White, Jr., Norman L. Christensen, Robert
C. Strader, District Lecturers, and myself. The MDL event was held simultaneously
in the major Masonic centers of Eau Claire, Green Bay, Madison, and Milwaukee.

   Bothers Norm Christensen, Bob Strader, Keith Chamberlain and myself met with
M.W.G.M. Micheal A. DeWolf in July to set the expectations of the one-day
initiation, passing and raising of new Master Masons. The full MDL committee met
as a group twice in person and twice in teleconferences. The Grand Lecturer and I
addressed the Grand Lodge full staff on three separate occasions. We discussed the
need for advance registration, degree participant qualification procedures, and
timetable. Numerous letters were sent to the constituent lodges, an article appeared
in each and every Wisconsin Masonic Journal, and a poster was developed by the
Grand Lodge Marketing committee to encourage lodges to participate in the event.

   The District Lecturers did an exceptional job in coordinating some of the best
degree presentation that many of have seen in many years. The second section of the
MM degree was done in costume and was a real highlight of the day. We wish to
thank the Scottish Rite Valleys for their assistance in coordinating the many
logistics required during the rehearsals and the day of the event.

   A total of 155 men registered and completed the three degrees of Masonry during
this single day. Each was accompanied by a mentor, a Master Mason, who helped
conduct them through the day and provided advice, explanation and encourage-
ment. These new members, joining Wisconsin Freemasonry, were distributed as
follows; 32 in Eau Claire, 15 in Green Bay, 38 in Madison, and 70 in Milwaukee. It
was impressed upon the mentors present that ongoing programs in the lodges must
welcome, educate, and encourage involvement of these new Masons.



                                        117
  In closing, we would again like to thank our M.W.G.M. Michael A. DeWolf, the
Scottish Rite Valleys, the Grand Lodge officers, the Wisconsin Masonic Journal, and
the district teams for their tremendous support, cooperation, and all their hard
work.

                                                           Respectfully Submitted,

                                         Joseph B. Harker, Junior Grand Steward
                                         Chairman Masonic Day-Light Committee

Report accepted.

          LEADERSHIP TRAINING COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin

  This past year the Leadership Training Committee has continued the Wisconsin
Grand Lodge Leadership Training Program through its third year. The focus this
year was on Masonic renewal through the attraction and retention of members.
Brother Bob Conley, PGM of Michigan and the Administrator for the Masonic
Renewal Committee of North America served as the presentor for the four sessions.

   Seminars were held at the Scottish Rite Valleys of Eau Claire and Milwuakee,
Mason Woods at Shawano, and the Middleton-Ionic Lodge #180 in Middleton. Our
appreciation to these bodies for hosting these seminars and their officers and
members for assisting with this program. The atmosphere of Brotherhood and
welcome was a definite asset to our presentations. Approximately 145 members
from 50 lodges, representing all offices, were in attendance. This repesents the
sincere dedication of these members to give up their Saturday for the betterment of
the Fraternity. A sincere thank-you to the committee members for their time and
effort to support and present these seminars throughout the state.

   The program presented this last year was positively and enthusiastically received
by the participants who had high evaluations and positive comments about the
seminars and their content. Bro. Bob Conley talked of the process for Freemasonry
to grow in Wisconsin giving particular notice to the generational differences that
would be found within the members of a Lodge. It will now be up to the members of
the Lodges to implement the concepts and make it all happen. Our thanks to Bro.
Conley for the time and insight to make these seminars a meaningful and valuable
experience.

   The continued and positive reception of these seminars by the members of the
Fraternitiy is an encouragement to the members of the Committee to continue their
development and presentationl of the fourth phase of the Leadership Training
Program. This coming year’s program will focus on the symbolism as found in our
Masonic ritual and practices with the intent to provide further meaning to the work
we do in our lodges. Further information will be provided this summer through the
Masonic Journal. We hope that those who have attended in the past—and others—
officers and members—will attend this next year’s presentations to further their
growth in leadership and in Masonry.

  The Committee continues to look to the future with efforts to bring to you the best
we can for improving the leadership for lodges in Wisconsin. The program is in place




                                        118
and the continued involvement of lodge officers and members is needed to make it
work and have an impact on the lodges. As we focus on Masonic symbolism in the
coming year, be a part of it—don’t be left out!

                    RESEARCH COMMITTEE REPORT
To The Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   The Research Committee did not meet this past year and has no recommendations
to submit at this Annual Communications.

                                                               Fraternally submitted,

                          YOUTH FUNDING POLICY
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

   The Youth Funding Committee met after Annual Communication and identified
a list of recommendations that would entail the raising of funds to the amount of one
million dollars so that the interest could be used to fund special youth projects. It was
felt that more contributions would be forth coming if the donations were to be tax
deductible. No action was taken on these recommendations.

   This past year youth groups were asked to submit a copy of their financial
statements, a budget of their expected needs, and the activities they would be
initiating to raise the needed funds. On the basis of these reports, Grand Lodge
youth group budgets are allocated for the coming year.

   Serious consideration should be given to statewide funding activities to raise the
fund to the suggested level. A full understanding of the financial situation of the
youth groups is necessary for this program to proceed. The youth groups are an
essential part of our Masonic family and should have the support necessary for them
to pursue their goals and activities.
                                                                           Fraternally,

                  EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT
To the Grand Lodge Free and Accepted Masons of Wisconsin:

  The Grand Lodge Executive Committee has continued to meet regularly through-
out the year under the leadership of Grand Master Michael A. DeWolf. A wide
variety of items of interest to Masons of this Grand Lodge have been discussed and
evaluated by this committee.

  Some items of note are:

  1. Back to the Basics: A focus on the basic tenants of our organization coupled
     with principal based decision making. Decisions for the fraternity were biased
     upon our guiding principals and by doing what is right for the Craft, not
     necessarily that which is popular or what we have always done before.
  2. CHiP Program: We are in the process of evaluating and planning for imple-
     mentation of the new Nation wide Masonic Child Identification Program.
     Grand Master DeWolf has been named to the National Committee to review
     the program.
  3. Catered Living: We are in the middle of a capital campaign to raise funding for
     the new catered living facility on our Masonic Campus. If we are to continue
     our mission of service to our ageing population this new project is critical. The
     Executive Committee is working closely with the Trustees, as well as with
     Mark Strautman, President and CEO of Three Pillars.
  4. Grand Lodge WEB Page: The Grand Lodge of Wisconsin has a new Web
     presence at www.wisc-freemasonry.org. As this tool continues to be expanded
     look for additional educational resources. It is our intention to have most GL
     forms and resources books available for download.
  5. Prudent Financial Management: As a committee we have continued to evalu-



                                        121
     ate the most cost effective methods for meetings, teleconferences, and service
     to the Craft. I am pleased to report that we have come in under budget this
     year. At the beginning of this Masonic year this same committee reduced the
     overall budget by approx. 23% over the previous year. Costs were reduced and
     service to the Craft was increased.

  The Executive committee continues to be concerned about the overall direction of
our Masonic Campus. The Grand Master has appointed a committee to research,
evaluate and develop a one (1), three (3) and five (5) year plan for our buildings and
grounds. It will include all of our holdings in the State. This committee has been
approved by the Grand Lodge Trustees and is operating with their full consent.

                                                             Fraternally Submitted,

                  REMARKS BY M.W. GRAND MASTER
                      KEITH D. CHAMBERLAIN

                          ADDRESS TO THE CRAFT
  Let me begin by thanking you for this unique opportunity. By consequence of your
vote, you have charged me with the responsibility of acting as your voice for this
great fraternity.

   It is a charge I do not take lightly and I am humbled at being allowed the privilege
of serving each of you as Wisconsin’s Masonic ambassador for the ensuing year.

  Not unlike many of you seated here today, I do not enjoy the luxury of retirement
as did our immediate past Grand Master. And, not unlike many of you seated here
today, I must continue the pursuit of my livelihood in addition to adhering to the
charge given me as Grand Master through your deliberations.

   Though this at times may cause difficulties, they will not be insurmountable, nor
will they deter us from the course we will establish here today... and through the
efforts of my outstanding and highly capable core of officers, we will forge ahead in
your best interest. I place great faith in the ability of my fellow Grand Lodge Officers
to assist me in serving the needs of our craft.

 While I am keenly aware of what you are asking of the office of Grand Master, I
must let you know what I am asking of Wisconsin’s Freemasons.

  It is my sincere desire that as we move forward together, the banner of under-
standing, cooperation and mutual respect for one another will serve to guide us.

  It is my expectation that we will work together in harmony for the common good
as we strive to attain the goals we have set for ourselves.

  It is of primary importance to me that every Freemason in this state understand
that this new Masonic year is not about “I... me... or mine.” It is about “us... we... and
ours.”

  This new Masonic year is about moving our fraternity forward together and
placing it squarely in view of those who do not know who we are. It is about
recapturing our proud heritage, reinventing our image and swelling our ranks.

  From image comes interest. From interest comes renewal and from renewal
comes growth. My Brothers, it is imperative for our very survival that not only our
Blue Lodges but all Masonic bodies work together to achieve this common goal.
Individually we’ll survive but collectively we’ll thrive.

  The “Never Forget” theme chosen by our immediate Past Grand Master focused
our thoughts on the core values of Freemasonry while taking us to the threshold of
the journey we are about to embark upon.As a result of his guidance, we will retain
the statewide Re-obligation Night in October as well as the Masonic Day-Light
Program in April of 2005.

  While these programs proved valuable in refocusing our perception of Freema-
sonry, it is for us to now step through that threshold and move forward, taking all
that we have learned from belonging to the greatest fraternity the world has ever



                                          132
known and imparting that knowledge to those who will assist us in using it for the
betterment of our fellow man.

  Normally, it is customary for the incoming Grand Master to speak to the craft
regarding his plans for the new Masonic year. I regret to report that I can not deliver
on that tradition.

  I can however, deliver to you our plan for this new Masonic year.

  Let me begin by introducing the members of the Masonic Marketing Committee:
Brother Lowell Scott, Chair; Brother Pat Storrs; Brother Keith Harmon.

   These men have spent a great deal of time and talent formulating the Blue Lodge
Public Awareness Program which you are about to receive. As a result of your input
over time and their efforts, a revolutionary, cutting edge program has been
fashioned whose primary purpose is to put local Lodges in control of their destiny.

  I mention this Blue Lodge Public Awareness Program as our program. I do so
because it is a direct result of input I received from Blue Lodge members just like
you.

   Behind me you see the Grand Masters pin. Please take note of it... it is the first
step in the “imaging” of our craft. Wisconsin Freemasonry: constant-caring-commit-
ted.

  Constant in the fact that Wisconsin Freemasonry has been part and parcel of this
great state for many, many years.

  Caring in the fact that Wisconsin Freemasonry through it’s Blue Lodges and
various appendant bodies supports a multitude of worthwile causes, bringing aid
and assistance to those less fortunate.

 Committed in the fact that Wisconsin’s Freemasons share a mutual desire to
make the world a better place in which to live.

  My Brothers, there is no deeply rooted secret, no well hidden agenda, no dark and
murky tale lost in the mists of time. There is only this simple truth... Freemasonry
exists through the combined efforts of many good men who are willing to extend the
hand of fellowship to those in need.

  Our program also includes some valuable tools with which to fashion your Lodge’s
individual image.

   Each of you, as you leave this morning, will receive a copy of the Blue Lodge Public
Awareness Program containing two computer discs. One is a DVD containing a
video recording of our Brother Lee Sherman Dreyfus. In it, he offers a wonderful
overview of our gentle craft, it’s history and heritage. It is designed primarily for use
at Friends Nights, Banquets or any other Masonic gathering at which potential
members are in attendance.

   The second disc is a CD Rom which contains a cover letter, forms, advertising
slicks and Masonic artwork. The cover letter explains the heart of this program...a
60/40 cooperative advertising promotion between your Grand Lodge and the
individual Blue Lodge. As you read the letter, you will see that each Lodge in the



                                          133
state has been credited with $250 in advertising funds.

   Should your Lodge wish to promote itself within the parameters of the explana-
tory letter and the program, the Grand Lodge will reimburse the cost of such
promotion on a 60% (Grand Lodge) 40% Blue Lodge basis up to a total one time
Grand Lodge outlay of $250 per Lodge.

  Example- for each dollar spent by your Lodge on promotion, the Grand Lodge will
return sixty cents of it to you when the proper paperwork is submitted in the manner
outlined in the CD Rom’s cover letter up to a maximum reimbursement of $250.

   Should your Lodge spend $100 promoting an upcoming Friend’s Night, simply fill
out the necessary paperwork and return it along with proof of publication to the
Marketing Committee in care of Brother Lowell Scott and you will be issued a check
for $60.

   It is extremely important to note that the cap in individual Lodge reimbursement
is fixed at $250 total per Lodge and must be applied for within the time frame
outlined in the cover letter. These requirements will be strictly adhered to... without
exception.

  Please read and re-read the cover letter contained in the CD completely to
understand what is required of your Lodge to utilize this program. Your District
Deputy Grand Master and his Area Administrators will be well versed in its use by
the time the Lodges re-open this fall. Should you wish to make use of the program
this summer, please direct your questions regarding it’s use to Brother Lowell Scott.

   You will also receive a Pocket Petition and a Courtesy Card. The Pocket Petition,
based on input received from Brother Mark Hazelbaker, is designed to fold neatly
into your wallet and contains all necessary information needed to sign a prospective
candidate “on the spot” which eliminates lost opportunity due to lack of immediate
access to a petition.

   The Courtesy Card is simply a way to further communication between you and
a prospective candidate. It contains a short message on the front and brief contact
information on the back.

   My Brothers, these tools are of your making and are designed through your input
to assist each of us in placing the word “Freemasonry” on the lips of those who have
never spoken it as well as in the ear of those who have never heard it.

   It is up to each of us to speak with a unified voice... imparting the wondrous life
lessons learned within the confines of our Mother Lodges to those who have yet to
benefit from Freemasonry’s Grand Design.

  That, my Brothers, is our mission. And toward that end, we shall not falter and
we shall not fail.

  Wisconsin Freemasonry... Constant, Caring, Committed.

                                      EDICT
To: All Constituent Lodges

Subject: Firearms Edict

   WHEREAS based upon recent events involving unauthorized use of firearms
within a Masonic Lodge and by the powers vested in me as Grand Master of Masons
in Wisconsin,

  I HEREBY CHARGE every Lodge in Wisconsin to strictly exclude from its Lodge
building and grounds, firearms of any type including those that fire “blanks” only
and those as defined in Wisconsin and federal statutes.

   ALSO, police officers and others who are legally entitled to hold permits to carry
firearms will secure their weapons prior to entering the Lodge building unless
required to carry them in conjunction with their employment as a law enforcement
officer.

  The Grand Lodge of Wisconsin holds a zero tolerance policy on this matter
without dispensation from the Grand Master. If violated, the Master of the Lodge
shall give a written report within twenty-four hours to the Grand Master, who will
upon receipt of the report, immediately suspend the violator from the fraternity
pending investigation into the violation. Such investigation may lead to additional
action being taken, including expulsion from the Masonic fraternity.




                                                             Keith D. Chamberlain
