Greetings Brothers all,
We are now in the second half of our masonic year and looking ahead at our calendar we need to make some adjustments, primarily to accommodate performing degrees.
We are cancelling the Table lodge planned for April 3rd and replacing it with a stated communication for doing the second part of the MM Degree.
We are also changing the meeting on May 1st to a degree night when we will have the EA degree for 5 candidates.
The installation of officers for 2019/2020 will be done on the same night as the election of officers May 15.
Finally, the June 6th Communication meeting will be changed to the annual “Parking Lot BBQ” and Awards night. Prospective members and spouses are invited.
The month of March is promising to be busy. For the March 6th meeting we are hosting the Annual Grand Lecturer’s convention for our district. Only Master Masons are invited to attend because the program includes parts of the Third-Degree ritual. Collation at 6 pm. Convention at 8pm. Entered Apprentices and Fellow Crafts are welcome to join the collation and dinner. It will be a great night to meet and greet brothers from other lodges of the district.
There are a few District/Grand Lodge wide events coming up that I would like to draw your attention to:First, the MAGLA Ritual Contest, is scheduled for March 28, 2019, 7:30 pm at the Grand Lodge of New York, 71 East 23rd Street New York. The work for the competition is the Working Tools from all three Degrees and it is open to Master Masons. Contact the officers for more information.
Second, we have the annual Second Westchester-Putnam District Dinner Dance on April 18 at Tesoro D’Italia160 Marble Ave, Pleasantville. Please plan to attend with your significant other. Please talk to any of the officers if interested and watch for a separate announcement.
February and March birthdays to be celebrated March 6 at collation. If your birthday is in February or March and your name is not includ-ed pleased drop me a note.
