Greetings Brethren All,
Our meetings in October were well attended. The masonic education topic was a discussion of the new optional lodge closing charge adopted in the latest edition of the NY cypher. The visit of the District Deputy Grand Master was well received, and the topic presented by the DDGM was the process of balloting.
Preparations are under way for the Fellow Craft degree scheduled for Nov 6.
On Dec 4 we will have an Entered Apprentice degree. Currently 3 candidates are scheduled to be initiated.
The First Wednesday of January falls on the 1st. The lodge will be dark on 5the day and resume on January 15.
We plan to have a Pre Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday November 20th which will replace our regular
communication meeting, provided we have sufficient attendance, ($ 15/person). The event is open to Masons, family and friends. If we do not get enough RSVPs, we will have the regular Stated Communication meeting. If you would like to attend, please respond to Matt Palazola no later than November 13.
Our traditional holiday luncheon has been confirmed by our Secretary RW Vincent Cunzio for Dec 8, 2019 at 2 pm to about 4:30 pm at Casaletto’s Ristorante in Elmsford. Announcement and RSVP directions will follow.
I would like to remind the Entered Apprentices that they need to be attending lodge regularly while making proficiency in order to be passed to the next degree. Make sure you are in contact with school of instruction Bro. Ramon Viruete.
