7/10/18 - Installation of Officers: The duly elected officers of Atascosa Lodge #379 for the 2018-2019 Masonic Year where duly installed. Installation is the act by which an officer is put in possession of the place he is to fill. In Freemasonry it is, therefore, applied to the induction of one who has been elected into his office. The officers of a Lodge, before they can proceed to discharge their functions, must be installed. The officers of a new Lodge are installed by the Grand Master, or by some Past Master deputed by him to perform the ceremony. The ceremony is an old one, and does not pertain exclusively to Freemasonry. The ancient Romans installed their priests, their kings, and their magistrates; but the ceremony was called inauguration, because performed generally by the Augurs. The word installation is of comparatively modern origin, being medieval Latin, and is compounded of in and stallum, meaning a seat.

4/16/2018 - Golden Trowel Award: The Golden Trowel is a Lodge’s formal recognition of a Brother for his devoted service to Masonic principles in general or to his Lodge. It is intended to recognize the Brother who, year after year, quietly, but actively demonstrates his devotion to the teachings of Masonry without thought of recognition or special honors. Every Lodge has such members. They spread the living cement that builds our Fraternity into a true brotherhood. You will find them at labor in the kitchens, on the work committees, in public office, on community projects, in service clubs, heavily involved in their church activities and in schools – anywhere that a true and steady hand of assistance is needed. It is those Master Craftsmen that the Golden Trowel Award is designated as the highest Award a Lodge can bestow an individual member. Only one Golden Trowel Award can be bestowed each year if there is a deserving Mason. The selection is made by the three most recent Past Masters. Neither they nor the serving Worshipful Master are eligible to be selected that year.
