Dear Brethren,

As a reminder, everyone should have received their Dues Statement from the Grand Lodge.  Just a friendly reminder to get those sent in.  If you have not gotten a Dues Statement, please reach out to me and let me know.  I will need to verify your address in the Grand Lodge database.  If you are having a hardship of some kind, please reach out to me.  We can’t assist if you don’t communicate.  Also, we are still looking for stories or fond memories any Brethren might have of WB Mark Griffin.  Please reach out to our Deacons or myself to share your stories.

Quote of the Week:

 “Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.”

This is what being in a Brotherhood is about.  Masonry takes good men and makes them better.  Part of how we do that is to not only believe in ourselves but in each other and keep pushing each other to be better versions of ourselves.

Master’s Travels

If anyone is planning to travel or visit another Lodge or has been asked to come assist with a degree, please reach out to me and let me know so we can get a few more Brothers to go and make a visit out of it.

Jan. 19 – Englewood Lodge #715 (MM Degree.  WB Andy Hoffman asked to assist.  Several officers joining to make official visit)

Jan. 28 – EA Degree (2 choices (Mt Etna #333 & Scott #120) that are about 1 ½ hour drive from Lodge.  Would need to leave between 4-4:30.  WM has room for 3 comfortably.  Let me know if interested.  We can leave at half-time if Brothers need to get back.)
