Masters Message 2009 through 2010 Masonic Year
I am honored, privileged, and blessed to be your Worshipful Master for the 2009-2010 ensuing year. I am excited for my officer line and am confident that together we will make an impact throughout the Lodge and our District.
My vision for 2009-2010 is to bring the family closer to Freemasonry. I would like to accomplish the following within my term:
• Show the immediate family that Freemasonry is a family affair; our very own events, Order of Eastern Star and our Youth Programs can help make this happen.
• Share Masonic degree work and major family events with our district brothers encompassing friendship, morality, and brotherly love.
• Raising and enlightening brothers in our Lodge. Believe, and it will happen!
Because we pride ourselves in our ritual, I ask that every officer; elected or appointed, give his all when assigned his respective parts. Let’s not be bashful, let’s work together so we can all stand up at the end of the year and say “We did it”!
To all of which, I charge all within this Lodge, that you do not forget your family; big or small, this is much too precious.
And last, but not least, COMMUNICATE!!!
I look forward to a great year.
