Brother William B. Stephnson Jr. Is in Jefferson Barracks V.A. Hospita recovering from a stroke.  He is in  Building No. 53, Room No. 25, South End.
He is expected to be there a few more weeks.  His wife, Cathy, would like a ride to and from the hospital if someone could volunteer.  Brother Bill turned 90-years of age last March.

Brother Thomas Moser recently had a shoulder replacement on Wednesday, May   2nd at Barnes Hospital.  We have had no reports as yet.  This is one of many surgeries that Tom has had.  Please keep him in your prayers.

Brother Ernie Rodgers, who will turn 96 years of age in September, recently was honored for 70-years of Masonic service by the Grand Master of Missouri.  He is a member of Meridian Lodge who presented him with a special 70-year apron.
Congratulations Brother Ernie!!!
As some of you already know the Triple Links Building is up for sale.  At the same time we are looking for a more suitable location. This process will take time and there have been a lot of questions in regard.  Presently there have not been any offers to purchase the building and we have not yet found a new location.  Regardless, as peviously stated in our letter informing the membership of the pending sale, we stated there will be updates as soon as anything changes. 
We are still stating the same thing.  AS SOON AS THERE IS ANY NEWS OR CHANGES the membership; will be informed.
The building is owned by the Odd Fellows Association of St. Louis so if any of you have someone who is interested in purchasing the building contact a member of the Association
who in turn will contact Bershire/Hataway.
WE HAVE A NEW BRIGHT RED TRAILER FOR THE SAFETY COFFEE BREAK. Thanks to Brothers C. Ray White and Thoms Moser.  We also would like to thank Brother Jose Hernandez for his help in securing a buyer for the old trailer.  Ever hear of a one-armed man doing carpenter work?  That's exacly what Brother Moser did when he put in new shelving.  I wonder how he would build a house?

The first Safety Coffee Break will be on May 28th at the north bound rest stop on Highway 55 at Bloomsdale, Missouri.  It will run from 9:00 A.M. Until about 3:00 P.M.  Volunteers are  need to help serve, set up and tear down.  You can bring wives or girlfriends but they cannot help serve. 

The second S.C.B. Will be on July 4th that is a Wednesday.  The Third and last S.C.B. Of the season will be on September 3rd. 
DON'T MISS OUT ON ALL THE FUN!!!!!

Amy questions see Brother Ray White.
