Greetings fellow Brethren and friends.
Acalanes Fellowship Lodge is already in full speed ahead. We held our first degree of the year on Tuesday January 23rd for Mr. Reynold Barzaga Dandan who was elected to receive the 1st degree of Masonry in our lodge at the January Stated Meeting. The degree began at 6:30pm, and it was wonderful to watch our core of excellent ritualists perform the first degree of the year and welcome our newest member to our lodge and fraternity.
I am looking forward to seeing you all at our annual Crab Feed at the Lafayette Community center on Saturday 27th. We have an exciting lineup of exciting silent auction of donated items. This event is the largest fundraiser for the year! I am also excited to report that Job’s Daughters and the Order of the Eastern Star are going to be serving our guests and we will be taking up a collection for them that night.
Our Junior Warden Adam Hanin will be making a presentation at our upcoming February Stated Meeting on how to use this RSVP system for our lodge. Once you all see how easy it is to use I’m confident you will all want to embrace this new RSVP technology. As in the past, anyone who wants to send in check or cash payments for this and future events, please direct them only to our lodge Secretary Fred Lezak at our lodge PO Box 1, Lafayette CA 94549 and indicate in the check memo what the payment is for.
Our upcoming February Stated Meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 6th and I look forward to seeing you all then. Finally, please save the date of Tuesday, February 27th for our first monthly lodge potluck and social night.
