Brothers

As the new year starts off, we’ve already had some hiccups so to speak in the office and forgive me if you received a dues notice you we not expecting. It was produced and mailed to the whole membership by a brother who was trying to assist. I thank him for his service and ask that you overlook his mistake if a notice reaches you unexpectedly.

Also it is my sad duty to report the unexpected and tragic death of our beloved friend and brother Walt Ireland PM. Please keep his Family in your thoughts and prayers.

Fraternally,

Mike Harris PM

Brothers,

This is my first trestle board entry as the new Worshipful Master, due to a printer error last month, and I still feel both humbled and inadequate to follow in the footsteps of the brethren who have so amply preceded me. I look forward to serving you earnestly in the coming year, and hope that together we can make it fun, instructional and memorable.

I earnestly solicit your comments and ideas as we go along. As we sit in lodge it is no accident that we face different directions. That gives each of us a different perspective of what is going on, giving each of us the possibility of seeing something that can be improved from a perspective that others may not have noticed from their position. However, each of us still face the three great lights in Masonry, reminding us where the source of all our inspiration does and should come from.

Many of us have had to skip chairs this year. That challenges us with new learning opportunities that come to us faster than we were anticipating. As we rise to the challenge of our new responsibilities, let us not forget to look back at the seat we skipped and endeavor not to overlook what we might have learnt from that chair too.

Fraternally,

Keir Hales

Worshipful Master

Greetings from the west …

My Brothers, I sincerely hope your Holiday Season was filled with happiness and joy. I am truly honored to have been elected to the Senior Warden position and I will serve our lodge to the best of my ability. I am looking forward to our new year and the challenges that come with it. I feel confident that, as always, we will rise to meet the occasion and continue the prosperity of our lodge. To my Brothers in “line”, as we are all learning our new positions, in the coming weeks your attendance is more important than ever. Working together we can insure the continued success of Mount Moriah.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend the hand of friendship to those brothers who have not attended Lodge in a while. I would also ask those brothers who regularly attend to reach out to our attendance committee and see if there is a way you could be of some assistance. Perhaps there is a brother who could benefit from a ride or upon receipt of a phone call from a friendly voice would like to visit for a dinner or called communication. February is an important month as it marks our annual George Washington Observance.
This year we are traveling to Acacia Lodge to celebrate the occasion with our brothers in North Las Vegas. I will close with a quote from Brother Washington…

I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.

Fraternally,
Patrick Welsh
Senior Warden

Greetings from the South,

I would like to start out by saying thank you to the craft for allowing me to serve as your Junior Warden this year. We have a great corps of officers and have no doubt that 2014 will be another great year for Mt. Moriah Lodge. February will be a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some fellowship with our brethren at Acacia and King Solomon lodges. Our annual George Washington observance dinner will be hosted by Acacia on the 19th at 6 pm.
I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in the Lodge every week. We will be doing a degree this month as well as education nights and it is important that as many members as possible be here. By setting a good example of regular attendance and active participation in the degrees we will encourage all new brethren to become active and help our Lodge grow and prosper.

Once again it is my pleasure to serve as your Junior Warden this year and I look forward to seeing you all again.
Fraternally,

Eric Holder
Junior Warden
