Annual Poker Night @ The Plaza - Saturday April 21st

posted Feb 6, 2018, 10:21 AM by Alan Power   [ updated Feb 6, 2018, 10:23 AM ]

Brethren, 

 Our 2018 Poker Night, benefiting our community youth and scholarship outreach will soon be upon us.  If you can attend or participate and contribute in any way it will be very helpful and appreciated.  

 We need, poker players, dinner guests, raffle prizes, door prizes and auction items.  Please think about friends and family that might be interested in a fun night out or those organizations and businesses that might be interested in participating or supporting our event by attending or donating items for raffle or auction.

This charity poker night is open to the public.  A flyer is attached for distribution.  Also, a tax id letter to give to businesses to ask for donations is attached.

 Tickets are available for sale by contacting Chet Hayes, Poker Night Co-Chair, at chethayes007@gmail.com or 775-445-9398.

 

The purpose of this event is to:

 0-raise much needed funds for our youth groups and other organizations we help support. 

0-get our members and newer Masons involved more fully into the Lodge. 

0-provide us with some positive exposure to the general public. 

 This event has been a great success in our previous years, with Masons and Non-Masons coming from all areas of our state to participate in the tournament. We have had inquiries into becoming Masons by some of the men attending our past events. We have netted over $20,000 in the first three years supporting our lodge and related programs.  

 Interesting historical note:  In 1931 wide-open gaming was legalized in Nevada by the Nevada State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Fred Balzar; the bill is introduced by State Assemblyman Phil Tobin of Humboldt County on March 19.

How to leave a Legacy to your Lodge

posted Nov 2, 2014, 4:19 PM by Alan Power   [ updated Apr 9, 2016, 1:44 PM ]

What a wonderful gift it is to leave a legacy to support those things in life that we loved and cared about. Leaving a legacy to Freemasonry expresses a love for the craft that cannot be expressed in any other way. I urge you to consider leaving a legacy so that others may continue to experience the Brotherhood that is Freemasonry. Help ensure its survival in the future and its growth by your thoughtful gift. 

Our regular article “Leaving a Legacy” has prompted the question: How do I Leave a Legacy? (Answer below)

The easiest and most common way to achieve this is through a “bequest” - the property or money that you promise in your will (or trust) to give to another person or organization after you have laid down your working tools.

Sample wording to include Carson Lodge No. 1 or any other organization in your will you may choose:

UNRESTRICTED BEQUEST
(For Carson Lodge's Unrestricted Use)

You may designate your bequest be applied to Carson Lodge’s unrestricted purposes (an “unrestricted bequest”). The funds will give the Lodge flexibility to meet its greatest needs at the time your bequest is realized.

“I give to Carson Lodge No. 1, F & A.M, a Nevada non-profit corporation located in Carson City, Nevada, the 
sum of $___________ [or property described herein] [or ____ percent (____%) of the rest of my estate] to be held and applied for the use of Carson Lodge No. 1, F & A.M. for its general purposes.”


RESTRICTED BEQUEST
(For a Purpose You Designate Such as a Scholarship)

You may instead designate a specific purpose for your bequest (a “restricted bequest”). For example, your bequest may be earmarked to fund a scholarship, or support building maintenance or another purpose that advances the programs of Carson Lodge.

“I give to Carson Lodge No. 1, F & A.M, a Nevada non-profit corporation located in Carson City, Nevada, the
sum of $___________ [or property described herein] [or ____ percent (____%) of the rest of my estate] to be
applied for the following purpose:________________ .”


As you review your financial and estate planning we hope you will consider the future of Carson Lodge No. 1 in a plan that meets your philanthropic and financial goals.

Scheduling at Carson Lodge No. 1

posted Dec 5, 2012, 4:20 PM by Alan Power   [ updated Sep 27, 2015, 3:35 PM ]

Carson 1 has a new consolidated system of scheduling.  If you plan a change to Carson 1’s schedule, it will be accomplished via e-mail.  All adds, changes, and deletes will be accomplished by sending an e-mail to the following: scheduling@carson1.com this will automatically send copies to all of the principal officers.

The secretary will verify if the time and date is open, confirm it with the webmaster, and respond back to the person applying for the schedule change.  Once the confirmation is complete, the schedule change will be added to the on-line calendar.  

A note of caution here: the official calendar is now the calendar on-line at http://www.carson1.com/calendar  Do not assume that because something was written on the calendar in the dining room that your schedule is confirmed – it may not be.  Also, if there are any event moves or cancelations, please provide these updates to scheduling@carson1.com as soon as possible to release the time and date for someone else (its just courtesy).  

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Alan Power, Web Master
