Fraternal Greetings Brethren and Happy Holidays!


Last month we had a great mini “Step Up Night” at our regular communication with Brother Jeff Buck (JW) sitting in the East to open and close the Lodge. Brother Jeff did a great job and I’m looking forward to seeing him in the East on a permanent basis in a few years.

Congratulations to Br. Small who took his second step in Freemasonry by being passed to the degree of Fellow Craft.  We were extremely lucky to have Worshipful Jim Haskell in the Oriental Chair for the Second Degree Ritual Work for the evening. Worshipful Jim’s ritual work was impeccable, as usual, and the night was a big success. I’d like to thank all the Brothers and Officers who came together to support Brother Jeff and Worshipful Jim to make the evening work so well.

We’ll be having some fun for this upcoming Monthly Communication on December 10th; we’ll be suspending our Third Degree Work (until January) due to the In-Town Monday Night Football Game with the Patriots vs Texans. Instead of Degree Work we will just have a regular opening and conduct such business as may regularly come before the Lodge. Then we’ll close out the meeting quickly so as to adjourn downstairs to watch the Pats on the Lodge’s Flat Screen TV.

I’d also like to draw your attention to a few significant anniversaries for some of our Lodge’s Brethren.

The following Brothers have achieved significant Veteran Status:

            Brother Gordon Barker                       65 Years

            Brother Alan Ferestien                        65Years

            Brother Witmore Turner Jr.                65 Years

            Brother Robert Rogers                       60 Years


I hope to see you on the 10th to join us for some great fellowship and Football!
