Fraternal Greetings Brethren,

Brethren, I would like to thank all those in attendance at our January meeting for helping to raise our candidate to the sublime degree.  We are very pleased to welcome Br. Matthew Wayne Small as Saint Alban’s newest Master Mason.  Special thanks to all the officers for there fine work, the gates and R.W. John Platt for his rendition of the Canadian Charge.

My Brothers I hope you have all recovered from your Super Bowl disappoint of not seeing our hometown team in the big game.  But if your still in the doldrums or just want to see our Senior Deacon put on the spot, come out to this months meeting and see Brother Flattery take on the Middle Chamber Lecture.  Yes, this month Saint Alban’s will be passing one candidate, Br. Richard Patrick Carey IV, to the degree of Fellow Craft.  Also remember that this month is Valentines Day and our chef, Br. Allan, will be serving up a great meal so bring your Valentine to the dinner (you know you promised her a great night out with so live up to that promise)!  We will also be receiving the DDGM of the 7th Masonic District, RW Stanley C. Gaw this month for a Fraternal visit.

We have several events coming up that I want to bring to your attention.  First is the Hockey night at Providence Bruins on February 8.  If you have signed up but not received your tickets please let me know immediately!  Second the International Order of Rainbow Girls is again sponsoring the Hiram Cup at F1 in Braintree.  If you remember last year Saint Alban’s had the most drivers raised enough money to enter 3 drivers in the race.  Each driver must have a sponsorship of $250 so lets each pitch in a little and see if we can beat last year’s numbers and BRING HOME THE CUP (more information can be found further back in this notice). Lastly please keep June 8th open on your calendar, it is Founder’s Day in Foxborough and the Lodge will again be participating in the event.  Last year we had a strong contingent in the parade and it was great to hear how well the people along the parade route responded as the Mason’s passed by.  I would like to continue to build on that this year so again please hold June 8th open on your calendar.

As always Brethren it is a pleasure to be your Master and I thank you for the support.
