From the East...
Greetings Brothers all,
Our masonic year is well under way having reached the midpoint. The new year is also here, promising to be even more exciting than the last.
The first meeting of the year was January 16 and we held an Entered Apprentice degree with eight candidates initiated. Junior Warden Bro Andrew Lovato was the Master for the evening and the event was attended by the District Deputy Grand Master R...W Michael Grenadier, the Grand Sword Bearer R...W William Kindle and the Assistant Grand Lecturer V...W... Raphael Wong. A big thank you to all the Brothers who participated in the degree and to those who attended.
The new Brothers are: Bro. Paul Alcin, Bro. John Bodur, Bro. Folorunsho Davidson, Bro. Nicholas Ferrandino, Bro. Xavier Garcia, Bro. Jacob Meranda, Bro. Manuel Patalinjug, Bro. Terrance Roys.
The upcoming February 6, Stated Communication meeting will feature a Lecture by VW Raphael Wong, Assistant Grand Lecturer.
The February 20 meeting will be a public one and has been designated as the annual Ladies and Widows Night. Reservation will be absolutely needed, and a separate announcement will follow.
The March 6th meeting will feature the Grand Lecturer’s Convention. This is in lieu of our regular meeting. All officers in the district are required by Grand Lodge to attend. I would like to encourage all White Plains
Lodge Brethren to attend the convention which will feature various announcements and lectures.
The March 20th meeting will be a Stated Communications meeting.
Saturday March 23 will be a special Master Mason’s degree meeting. Planning, preparation and rehearsals will be announced in early February.
