Greetings from the East Brethren!
I write to you as I am on my way out, making room for the next generation of leaders. There are a few familiar faces moving into new positions in 2023. There are also some new faces joining the line. With them they carry new ideas. I encourage you to get to know them and give them your full support as I am.
Masonry has many secrets. Perhaps the greatest secret is what it brings out of you. I believe Masonry has enabled me to look inside of myself and see how I can improve. I wasn’t sure how I would feel after completing my year as Master. Do I feel as if I have accomplished a goal? Absolutely. Do I feel as if Masonry has more to offer? Yes. What is the next step in my Masonic journey? Now that is a question.
The Masonic Journey is different for each of us. Personally, I look forward to exploring The Shrine and York Rite. I look forward to supporting the new leadership of Acalanes Fellowship Lodge in any way I can. But most of all I look forward to seeing new members come into our lodge, our craft, and taking Masonry into the future.
Thank you for your time and support during my year. Thank you for your counsel and guidance. Be safe and be kind to one another. Help each other when possible.
We’ll talk again soon.
