This year has just flown by, it feels like I was just installed yesterday and I’m already writing my last Masters Message for the year.  

It’s been a fun year; we have hosted the District Deputy and the Grand Master, we have put on a Speakeasy and two Smokers, opened our Lodge in three different states, (Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Pensilvania), hosted some spectacular speakers at our meetings, and raised six new Master Masons!  And through it all had fun doing it!

Novembers meeting was a great night, RW Ryan Flynn came down from New Hampshire to give a thought provoking presentation on the degrees and chipping away at our own rough ashlars. And we got a final total of over seven hundred dollars contributed for Jenks to purchase holiday gifts for some families in need who live in our own neighborhood. 

I’m now looking forward to my last month as Master of this lodge.  On December 18th at 4PM we will have our annual Jenksmas celebration with a pot luck dinner and gifts for the children (12 and younger). Contact the secretary for more information.  This months meeting will be a week earlier than normal due to Christmas, we will open a lodge of Master Masons on December 19th at 7PM, dinner at six. The meeting is a “step up” night with the 2023 officers doing the open and close, and our Awards and recognition night with several brothers receiving awards for their service and dedication to the lodge.  And finally the Annual will be on January 7th at 4:30, it will be a semi-public so bring your family for what I’m sure will be a great night as we welcome our 2023 officers!
