Wisconsin Ave. Milwaukee, WI 53208 13 Tattler March, 2006 MDL 2006 in Milwaukee is just around the corner... Did you know that the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin and Tripoli Shrine is planning a Masonic Day Light event on April 29 at the West Allis Masonic Center at 7515 W National Avenue in West Allis? Has your Lodge started planning how to take advantage of it and bring new members in? Many of our older brethren seeing MDL events the last two years said it was some of the finest degree work they had seen. Don't let your Lodge miss out on the opportunity this year! Here's the highlights of the event: • "Masonic Day-Light 2006" is designed to identify men of quality who share our common values and through education and encouragement unveil the beauty of Freemasonry to them. • Masonic Day-Light 2006 will be co-hosted by the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin and each Shrine Temple (Milwaukee, Green Bay, and Madison), and will allow each candidate to experience the Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft and Master Mason Degrees, the first steps in his life's journey in Freemasonry. • Working in conjunction with the Shrine Temples, the candidate will also have the option of con- tinuing his journey in Freemasonry by taking the first step in becoming a Shrine Mason on the same date. • April 22, 2006, is the absolute cut-off for candidates. There will be no walk-ins allowed on the day of the event on April 29. • All lodges must perform the standard petition, interview and ballot process as per the Masonic Code, although dispensation has been granted for special meetings for reading and balloting, as well as minimum time gaps. • A $15 fee for each candidate due from the host lodge to cover food expenses, which may or may not be passed on to the candidate and accompanying MDL registration form (with Mentor’s name) are to be sent to Tripoli Shrine. • Unlike previous MDL events, Grand Lodge has determined that there will be no candidate packet for the lodge to pay for. Bibles and Leathern aprons should be presented to the new Master Masons in their home lodges at a later date. • Degree Ritual Coordinators will be asking many of you to take part in the presentation of the degrees, as well as contacting Lodges to arrange the qualifying of degree team members. • Tripoli Shrine will host a celebration at Tripoli Shrine afterwards for those new Master Masons and Shrine Masons. Get with your Lodge leaders today and start planning for MDL 2006! Call Tripoli Shrine at (414) 933-4700 with questions; your questions will be forwarded and answered.
