Fraternal Greetings Brethren,   
 
Our June meeting may signal the close of another Masonic year but before we all scatter for the Summer season 
remember there is still some very important business to take care of at this meeting.  First we will be raising two 
Brethren to the sublime degree of Master Masons, we will be electing our slate of officers for 2013 – 2014 and 
finally we will be voting on candidates to start the degrees in the fall!  So some very important items that 
warrant your attendance and participation but,  if that is not enough I can further temp you with a collation 
featuring some of the best strawberry shortcake around! 
 
Also in June we will be marching in the Founder’s Day parade on June 8th(more details later in the notice), 
holding a MyCHIP program during the Founder’s Day field activities which will see, we hope, the 300,000 child 
go through the program and also pledging our support by donating canned food and/or money  to R.W. James 
Carroll as he participates in the American Cancer Societies Relay for Life.  As always my Brothers these events 
succeed or fall short based on your support so please make the effort to help them succeed by participating. 
 
Before I get to far ahead for myself I want to look back to our May meeting and thank the officers for there fine 
work and particularly single out the Senior Deacon, Br. Steven Flattery, for his fine rendition of the Middle 
Chamber lecture.  Once again Saint Alban’s showed that when it comes to ritual we all take it as a matter of 
personal pride to do it well and hopefully it instilled in the candidates that same pride so that when it is their 
turn to occupy the “chairs” they will understand the dedication and commitment it takes to do Saint Alban’s 
ritual! 
 
Brethren my term as Master of Saint Alban’s is growing ever shorter therefore so will my message from the East!  
I will close now; thank all of you for your support, friendship and dedication to the craft, and wish you a happy 
and safe Summer (after the June meeting). 
 
 
So Mote It Be.  
 
Fraternally, 
 
Tom.
