The chairs in the west, with jewels and aprons waiting.

Thank you to the brothers for electing me to the West. I appreciate your support in placing me in such an important position.

I look forward to the upcoming year and degrees throughout the year. I thank you in advance for your support in accomplishing my duties. I am aware that many of you have the knowledge needed for me to be successful in the West and I will be seeking your assistance. If you have an interest in a particular part in any of the three degrees, please let me know.

May this new year bring you good health, fortune, and to the Lodge for great fellowship.

Tony York
Senior Warden
