Greetings from the East,
Brothers our first meeting is in the books and I’m happy to say that you made it a complete success. For those who couldn’t make it here’s a quick recap. You unanimously voted to give the Entered Apprentice Degrees to two candidates and we read applications from three more gentlemen who wish to find light with us in Old Colony Lodge.
Stealing a line from Bill Belichick, “we had a good game but l ’m moving on to November”, which will be a busy month including an informal discussion on the Fellow Craft Degree in conjunction with other lodges in the district on November 8th @ 7 PM in these apartments. In addition to November 8, our usual meeting night will consist of the typical lodge business, report presentations, voting and degree work. Remember our successes can’t happen without you so please join us and R.S.V.P. at your earliest convenience.
Many Thanks to Wor. Ian Mackenzie for the amazing job that he has done as our membership ambassador. Although Wor. Mackenzie had intended this to be a lifetime appointment; we need new and fresh energy in this position. Remember to congratulate our newest membership Ambassador Brother Bruce Marden at next month’s meeting.
Please Join me in wishing our own Wor Philip A. Stoddard a very happy birthday. He will be 100 this Nov 29. Worshipful we all hope your day was very enjoyable and that you have many more birthdays to come.
Brethren 2018 dues invoices have been sent out and we are off to a Great start. If you did not receive a dues invoice, you have questions on your invoice or if you are under some unforeseen hardship please do not hesitate to let myself or our Secretary Wor. Marshall W. Bates Jr. know.
My brothers I leave you with these words
“Old Masons never die; but you have to join to find out why”
Wor Vincent L Mood
