As that will be our installation of Officers. Installation at 10 am, Lunch to follow!

I’d like to thank our EA degree team for a Job well done, we brought 4 new Brothers into our Fraternity on November 12th. We have done an excellent job not only this year but over the past 2 years of bringing new Brothers into our Lodge and I thank everyone who has helped with Petitions, Investigations, Degrees, Catechism and Mentoring of all of them. Without everyone ‘s help we would not have accomplished what we have. As always if there are any brothers that need a ride to lodge please reach out to any of our officers and we will arrange for transportation.

Brothers, as I get ready to leave the East, I want to thank each and every one of you for all of your help and support over these past 2 years. The confidence and the honor you have bestowed on me by electing me twice to serve as the Master of our Lodge is truly humbling. Thank You!

I would also like to take a moment to wish each and every one of you and your families a Happy Holiday Season! I pray that the Grand Architect we continue to bless you and keep you safe!
