More Awesome Updates!

Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level1

 

The dirt from the old masonic temple at 34 Miller St is being trucked to the new site to level the lot. The new Masonic Center will sit on the same dirt as before! How appropriate is that?

 

Stakes for the building corners have been set. If you look closely, they are visible in the photos.

 

For what it’s worth, this is a good thing for us.  If you see any of the board members, take time to thank them.

January 28, 2014

To constituent members of the Masonic Temple of Winston-Salem:

 

We are mailing each member of each organization that met in the Masonic Temple of Winston-Salem on Miller Street. This letter was emailed to the presiding officer and secretary of each body requesting them to send out to their respective email lists. This letter is also posted on the two temple websites, www.34miller.com and www.mcwinston.org.

 

The real estate transactions closed in August 2013, and we have been meeting at our temporary locations since July 2013. By all reports, these meetings are going well. If you have suggestions or comments regarding meeting locations please send them through your temple board representative or directly to me.

Since August 2013 your board of directors and building committee have been working diligently with the architect and general contractor. For months the preliminary schematic has been posted on the above websites and paper versions displayed on the table in the Miller Street temple foyer. We have attempted to gather input from the various stake holders for their needs in the new Masonic Center. We greatly appreciate all the input to date.

 

We are at a point in the design process where we need your input once again before the designs are finalized, sent to the engineers, and subsequently sent out of bid. You are invited to a design review meeting on Wednesday, February 12 at 7:00 p.m. at New Philadelphia Moravian Church Fellowship Hall located at 4440 Country Club Rd (west end of campus next to Kilpatrick Road). The temple building committee, board of directors, and architect will be present to review the plans to date and gather your input. Included with this letter you will find the most current building schematic.

 

There will be a second review tentatively scheduled Wednesday, April 2 at 7:00 p.m., again at the New Philadelphia Moravian Church Fellowship Hall. This will be the final at-large membership review held prior to the documents being sent out to sub-contractors for bidding. If this timetable holds true then we hope to break ground on the building or before May 5, 2014. You may observe some site development work starting sooner and running in parallel to finalizing building designs.

 

Your temple board of directors meets monthly during the building phase on the first Monday at 7:00 p.m. at the New Philadelphia Moravian Church Parsonage. The meetings are open and you are most welcome to attend. The building committee meets more often as needed. If you wish to attend one of those meetings, please contact your temple board representative for details.

 

Going forward it is the board’s desire to provide monthly updates via email to the various body presiding officers, secretaries, and post on the temple websites. We do not anticipate another mass mailing to all members.

 

We look forward to these exciting times and greatly thank each of you in assisting us in realizing our plans for a new Masonic Center for all to enjoy. On behalf of the board of directors of the Masonic Temple of Winston-Salem, Inc., I am,

 

Sincerely and fraternally,

masonic temple of Winston-salem, Inc.
