I hope all of you had a pleasant summer and got a chance to relax with family and friends. Although I couldn’t tell by the weather, summer is apparently ending and September is upon us. Once again we pick up our working tools and return to the quarry. I am eagerly anticipating getting back to the work of our fraternity, and hope to see many of you in Lodge. The September Stated Meeting gives all of us a chance to share in some Fellowship and polish up our work. The year is passing us by quickly and I want to encourage all of you to reach out to a Brother who may need a ride to Lodge or a kind word of encouragement. I pray that none of us ever become so busy that we cannot spare the time required to make a phone call.
