WM Eric Willson

I would like to thank everyone who put so much work into getting us through this first half of the year.  It has been a pleasure to govern the Lodge.

While we are dark for the summer, please feel free to reach out to me for anything.  I am always happy to meet with any of you, for any reason.

Remember!   June stated meeting is a Hawaiian Shirt night!   Do not cause confusion in the Craft by showing up out of uniform.

Fraternally yours,
Eric Willson
Worshipful Master

Bro John Krikorian

Brethren, as we go dark for the summer, we should consider how we can best serve the Lodge in the remainder of the year. Think carefully about your goals in Masonry and how you can best serve them in the Lodge. There are many areas that could use your help. We have charitable works, ritual & degrees, coaching new Brothers, improving the physical Lodge, and many others. The best way to get involved is to let your wishes be known and your Lodge leadership will work with you to find a place that is rewarding for you and will enhance your Masonic journey.

I hope everyone has enjoyed your meals for this year.  June 5 stated meeting will be a Hawaiian theme including dress, aloha shirts.  We will be having Kalua Turkey which looks and taste like Kalua Pig, fried rice, Asian style salad, veggies and deserts. Hope to see you all there.
