From the East
“My philosophy has always been, if you can put staff first, your customer second and shareholders third, effectively, in the end, the shareholders do
well, the customers do better, and you’re happy.” – Richard Branson
I like to think of this inspirational quote as pertaining to family and the brotherhood of Freemasonry. The officers of the lodge have been fantastic this year and I would like to thank them all for your hard work and
dedication to the lodge.
Please feel free to contact me or any of the officers of the lodge if you have
something to share or just want to chat. I know that I have said this before in the trestle board but it goes further than just a monthly report.
It has been a pleasure to serve as Worshipful Master of the Lodge this past year. We have had many challenges, but with all the challenges, we have still managed to accomplish great things. With the lodge closed for half the masonic year, we have completed upgrades to the lodge, such as; our collation room has a new entertainment center, we have painted the west wall, voted in dual membership, accomplished the raising of two Master Masons, and initiate two new brothers into the lodge. We could not have done this without the assistance of the brothers of the lodge who have stepped in to make things happen. I owe the trustees, officers, and members of the lodge a great deal of gratitude. Your drive and hard work are well appreciated.
A Special thank you to RW Bob Volk. His many years as secretary has
provided professionalism and wisdom to the lodge. He will be taking on the position as Aide to the Grand Master.
Thank you to all the brothers who assisted with the upgrades to the lodge this year. Especially brother Joselito Mateo who has put many hours of his time with the painting of the west wall, the entertainment center in the collation room, and many other projects this year. If there is an award for Mason of the year, I certainly nominate brother Mateo. Job well done.
