Called off: July Stated Meeting

Brethren,

I apologize for the late notice, but several of the officers are not able to attend tonight’s meeting and we will not have investigative committee reports on our two petitions. Additionally, Bro. Treasurer would not be there to issue checks for reimbursement. Holding a meeting tonight would be a waste of time for the members and money for the lodge. Please take this time to spend with your loved ones and celebrate the 241st anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.

I’ll remind you all that our next meeting will be August 7th, 2017, and I hope to see you all there.

Please reach out to me if any of you have pressing concerns. If you have expenses that need to be reimbursed, please contact Bro. Secretary. Stay safe and we will see you next month.

Fraternally,

Steve Higdon

Annual Table Lodge

Greetings Brethren!

The table lodge was a huge success. We had 20-30 brothers in attendance from across two jurisdictions and several lodges. Special thanks to MWB Joseph Crociata for his guidance and role as the Toast Master. I think I took wine with just about everyone there at least once. I also want to thank Right Worshipful Brothers Richard J. Bautista and Morgan Corr for supporting our event and representing the Grand Lodge. Finally, we wouldn’t have been able to do any of it without the planning and food coordinated by Worshipful Brother Newman, Brother Morrison, and our resident chef, Brother Smith. Their time, patience, and good will were instrumental in the success of  the night!

Thank you to everyone else who participated in our third annual table lodge. Hopefully this just goes to show that it will only get better as the years go on!

Happy to meet, sorry to part, happy to meet again!

Fraternally,
