From the East...
First and foremost, for those that have not been made aware already, R...W...James Holden is quite sick. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Reach out and give him your best wishes. Jim has, of course, been a pillar and invaluable leader for our Lodge for many years. We are all indebted to him for his guidance, wisdom, generosity and dedication. From my very first days as a Mason, Jim was there to give me advice, and has helped me out many, many times. And I know he has done the same for most of you also. This Wednesday we will be signing a card, please be there so you can take part also. We wish Jim all the best.
Our next meeting on March 2nd will be a Fellowship night. Dinner again will be cooked by Brother Andrew Haight.($10). At our last meeting, Andrew also did the cooking duties. The excel- lent, very tasty meal consisted of all organic ingredients. Thank you very much Brother Haight for all your time and work. Attire is dress casual.
The meeting on March 16th will be a Stated Communication that we will keep as brief as we can. Attire is jacket and tie. We were trying to have a First Degree on this night, but things just did not work out. We are now tentatively scheduled to have a First Degree on May 4th.
This past Thursday Brothers Dave Brijlall and Ian Goodman completed their Third Degree. This was at Grand Lodge in NYC, along with our Brothers from Knickerbocker Lodge. A fantastic night was had by all, and our gracious Brothers did another fine job with The Drama and degree work. Please be sure to congratulate Ian and Dave when you get a chance.
The visit by District Deputy Grand Master R...W...McAloon has been rescheduled for April 20th. Please make your best effort to be there, we want to have a good turnout for this special night.
Hopefully, even more Brothers will decide to come back to the Lodge soon. You are always welcome with open arms, no matter how long it has been since you have been back.
However, just a reminder that all Brothers attending Lodge are very strongly encouraged to get their vaccination please. I look forward to seeing you soon.
