Greetings Brethren All,
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Safe travels if you are making the trek to grandmother's house. Have a festive and reflective time.
I am grateful for many things in life as I know you all are -- for our families, our work, our freedoms -- but I thought I'd highlight my gratitude in particular for this great fraternity of ours, a gratitude I know you share. One of the ways we can express that gratitude is by participating in the life of the lodge:
December 6, 2017
Collation 6:30 pm, RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
Gavel 7:30 pm
Come and hear a talk to be given by our very own RW James Holden. He will be expatiating on our Grand Lodge Constitution and much more!
Also, remember to RSVP for the Holiday Party at Casaletto in Elmsford on December 10, 2017. To RSVP send your check for $65 made out to "White Plains Lodge 473" to:
White Plains Masonic Lodge
c/o M. Palazola
White Plains, NY 10602
We always have a great time at the dinner! (Last year we had a surprise visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus.)
The December 6th Communication will be our last meeting for 2017. It will also be the last day for petitions to be submitted for the February Initiation.
Our next communication will be in January 17, when we will ballot on petitioners.
If I don't see you at our next communication, please have a safe and joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year!
W.·. Stephen Petty
