I suppose it is always an interesting experience writing your first Master’s message. For my part, I find myself looking out over the landscape of what promises to be a very busy year. With an Entered Apprentice Degree, a DDGM visitation, and a Grand Master’s visitation all within the next three months we are certainly hitting the ground running.
We will be conferring the entered apprentice degree on our newest candidates at our January meeting. Many of these men you may have already met at some of our social events over the past 6 months or so. They have been in attendance at everything from pot lucks to back yard barbecues; a testament to their desire to be active and involved members of our lodge. I hope you will join us in January to officially welcome them into our fraternity.
Looking forward, we will be holding our annual cigar dinner on the third Monday in February. The details are still being ironed out but further information on that event will be available in the coming days.
Lastly, I will say that I am always available should any brother have a question, comment, or concern about any aspect of the lodge or it’s goings-on. My email is always open and I welcome your thoughts and input.
I look forward to seeing you in lodge and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!
