Many thanks to all of you that made it to our meeting in December.
On December 10th, we joined with the Brothers of Knickerbacher Lodge in raising two of our Brothers to the sublime degreeof Master Mason. Ian Goodman and Dave Brijlall were given the honor, joined by R...W... Romy Quesada, Andrew Haight andRamon Viruete. We had a fantastic evening, that saw a very strong ritual, plenty of camaraderie and a very impressivecollation.
Many thanks to Romy for all his help making this happen. And also a special thank you to W...M Edwin De Guia of Knickerbacher #182 for letting us join them in this memorable evening. And lastly, but cer- tainly not least, a big thank you to our DDGM John McAloon for his help getting our dispensation processed so quickly.
The conclusion of this degree will take part at Grand Lodge on Thursday January 13th at 7pm.
Please RSVP if you want to go, as we need a head count before hand.
We, of course, will work on getting our remaining FCs raised as soon as possible.
On December 12th we also held our Holiday Dinner at Casaletto’s in Elmsford. We had a nice turnout and plenty of deliciousfood. Thanks to all those that joined in on the festivities.
The next meeting on the 5th will be a Fellowship Night. There will be a collation, with the price being $10 per head please. Dress is casual.
And on January 19th there will be a Stated Communication, where we are expecting a visit from DDGM John McAloon. Please make every effort to attend this meeting. We are honored to welcome the new District Deputy to our Lodge. Collation again will be $10 per person. Tuxedos please.
I would like to wish all the Brothers of White Plains Lodge No. 473 and their families a most joyous and blessed holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May our lives only get better in 2022.
Hopefully even more Brothers decide to comeback to the Lodge soon. You are always welcome with open arms, no matter how long it has been since you have been back.
