Thank you for electing me to the East. I would also like to thank all those who participated in the installation of officers for 2023. The officers are here to serve the lodge and the brothers, please reach out to any of us at any time.
I commend our Jr. Past Master Eric Lawrence for his leadership over the last two years during complicated times. The activity level within the Lodge is on the rise along with our participation in the community. I am proud that we have 5 Entered Apprentices and several Fellow Crafts working hard on their proficiencies. Thank you to the several brothers providing instruction. Let’s provide them the support and fellowship they need to become Master Masons.
Life is always unpredictable. Cable tows get pulled in a variety of directions. This year we will be having our Lodge open for more regular and frequent gatherings to include more brothers in our activities as possible. We have moved up the Lodge’s dinner before the Stated Meeting to 6:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of the month with the Stated Meeting starting at 7:00 p.m. The second Friday of the month will be an evening for brothers to come together at the Lodge for a monthly night of Fellowship. On the second Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. we will have breakfast at the Lodge for all who wish to join us to start the weekend off right.
Additional activates this year will include a family night, a Lodge picnic, and of course the 4th of July pancake breakfast. Please let me know if there are other activities that our great Lodge could benefit our brothers and community.
