Fraternal Greetings Brethren,

I hope you and your families had a wonderful Holiday and that you rang in the New Year among friends!

This year we look forward to seeing Saint Albans continue to evolve while still maintaining the solid traditions and precepts that we all value so much.  When you next come to the Lodge Building you will be pleased to see the new paint job that Worshipful Peter and his crew have done in the hall itself. Blue walls with Gold Trim have really improved the look quite a bit. Last year saw many improvements to the Building and more are on the way in 2013. We’ve been so lucky to have Worshipful Peter (with the Trustees support) attending to the building.

January 14th will be our next regular communication and we’ll be raising Brother Mathew Small to the sublime degree. This will be the first Third Degree performed by the current suite of officers and I hope you will attend to see just how good they are at this ritual.  Another good reason to attend is that we’ll have some guest visitors from Harmony Lodge in Cranston, RI who will be making an interesting Presentation to our Lodge.

I would be remiss if, before I conclude, I failed to mention the good work being done by Brother Bob Churchill on behalf of the Masonic Angel Fund. Brother Bob has invested a significant amount of his personal time on behalf of the youth in our community by meeting with other leaders of philanthropic organizations and with leaders in the schools enabling our fund to be used to the best effect benefiting those who need help. In December, through the fund and matching funds from Grand Lodge, Brother Bob distributed over $2000 to the needy- Thank you Brother Bob for all your hard work. 

My Brothers, I look forward to seeing you on January14th.
