Your Worshipful Master has been extremely busy reopening his restaurant. I am certain he will keep you informed of necessary events and other business by another source.
I hope this finds you all doing well. Many things are delayed at this time. Rescheduling events are in the works currently. A revised timeline will be finalized as soon as we know things are getting back to normal. This includes Inspection and any other events that may be affected.
The One Day Class for our newly raised Master Mason Brother Harder was a great honor and success. Special dispensation was granted by Most Worshipful Grand Master Keith Newton. Past Grand Master Charlie Murphy initiated him for the Entered Apprentice degree. While I had the pleasure of passing him the degree of Fellow Craft. His father Brother Scott Harder had the distinct and rare experience of raising his son to the sublime degree of Master Mason. What an occasion it was.
The Walleyes hockey game was a hit and bus load of fun and fellowship. The next adventure was to be the 3rd annual Mud Hens trip. However due to uncertainty of the League and its season we may have to plan another adventure. I know many along with myself have wanted to take a trip to the Detroit Masonic Temple. Wherever the road takes us I know it will be an excellent time. Awards night is April 15th dinner begins at 6:00. Please join us in celebrating the anniversary of our fellow brothers.
A One Day class will be held at Kenton on May 2nd beginning at 9:00am. Again, the dates may change because of the current circumstance. We will keep you advised. I have missed seeing you in Lodge. I am looking to seeing you all again soon when we are able to reconvene.
Myself along with the newly installed Blue Lodge Line Officers, hope the holidays were wonderful and warm this season. The New Year brings us many new adventures you're sure to not want to miss out on. An event calendar will be mailed out and posted at the lodge to keep everyone informed of what is to come.
The children’s Christmas party was spent with little ones enjoying a visit with Santa, spending their time making crafts, eating chili dogs and snacks, and watching a Christmas movie. Thank you to all who helped and for making a fun filled day.
In Tradition our 85 year and older members received their fruit baskets along with a visit from a brother. I know that myself and many brothers enjoy the time spent reuniting. It is such an honor and blessing to share those moments together.
Inspection is Monday January 27th. Dinner begins at 6:30pm inspection starts at 7:30. The inspection degree will be in the Fellow Craft degree. Hope your able to enjoy dinner and watch what I am confident will be a wonderful inspection.
It is such a pleasure to see familiar faces light up when reunited. We are excited to see you. Please join us for our regular stated meetings at 7:30 every 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Enjoy dinner before at 6:30. Our culture is based from our history. Our future is what we make of it.
