From the East
Spring is upon us once again. It's time for St. Patrick's day and of course Spring cleaning. Remember to look in your food pantry and ask your family, friends and neighbors to do the same, and donate your canned goods or dry goods to the local food bank by bringing them into the lodge.
I would like to thank everyone for the outstanding attendance we've had at the Lodge, particularly for the stated meeting dinners. I feel the dinners are a great success and everyone seems to enjoy themselves.
We are looking forward to a very busy month here at the lodge. With three new applicants and if elected, we will have four candidates for March! We should look forward to a lot of raising in the near future. Ladies please join us after the March stated meeting dinner and program for some fun games.
One of the main goals of Freemasonry is to create “a sacred band or society of friends and brothers”. I think we are doing ourselves proud in meeting that objective. Freemasonry is so much more than just ritual. It is about creating a selfless individual who strives to ask himself, What can I do to help? How can I make this better for others? How can I serve?
It is important to attend the March Stated Meeting so that your voice can be heard. Please listen to all discussions and weigh all sides to make the best decision for the lodge.
That’s it for now! So until next time I want to wish you all the best and if you need anything, want to get involved, or just want to enjoy some fellowship please feel free to contact me anytime. The best way to reach me is by phone or text.
Fraternally, Paul Cary, Master
