We’ve had a very productive and rewarding time over the last several weeks. In late September we initiated Kesten Summers into the lodge. In October we passed Bros. Terry Killgore and Jonathan Groetsch in separate degrees. For Bro. Jonathan’s degree we traveled to the Historic Lodge in Columbia. It was exciting to travel to Columbia and the weather and reception by the Columbia folks could not have been better. If you’ve never been to Columbia it is a neat place to visit.
The Annual Communications was this past weekend in San Francisco. Our lodge was well-represented by the senior officers. I will provide a short synopsis of the proceedings next month.
During the November Stated Meeting we will hold our annual officers’ elections for the ensuing year. Only members in good standing in the lodge will be permitted to vote. The line officers are working on their proficiencies which they must deliver to the Inspector prior to being installed into their respective positions. The Installation Ceremonies will be held December 10, 2014 at 4:30 PM, followed by dinner. Please make reservations and attend.
November is the month we celebrate Thanksgiving. Take some time to relax with your family and friends and give thanks to our Creator for our wonderful country and all that it affords us. We are truly blessed to live in the USA.
