I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. This year passed very quickly. I want to thank all of the Officers that supported me these last twelve months. The meetings went smoothly, for the most part. I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication that was put into our events, degrees, and ritual.

I would also like to thank all of the brethren who are not Officers, but whose very presence made our degrees successful. Your friendship and advice has been such a blessing, and I hope that you will continue to bestow it on our next Master.

I’ll see you all at the elections and installation!

Fraternally yours,
Eric Willson
Worshipful Master

It honors me deeply that you have placed your trust in me and selected me to sit in the East this year. We are planning a full year of exciting events and meetings. There will be many opportunities to get involved and participate in areas of Masonry that may interest you. Seek out that part of our craft that speaks to you and reignite your passion for our fraternity.

It’s been a fun year providing food for you. I hope that you enjoyed it.
We are going to end this year on December 4th at our stated meeting with Tri-tip Steak, Baked Potatoes, Mixed Vegetables, Salad and variety of Desserts.

Thank you for your support especially on Thanksgiving Potluck Family Dinner.

Wow, what a busy month is December! Amid the tinsel and the mistletoe, please don’t forget about 2020 dues. Same price: $101.00. What a bargain for all the lodge does!

This year we get see some of the results of Grand Lodge’s “Grandview” system that has pre-printed our names as well as our Grand Lodge record number on our dues cards. Please make your check payable to Mt. Moriah #39. PayPal option is still available, but not preferable. Lodge officers are reminded that, to hold office, they must have a dues card for the year they serve.

I proffer my best wishes for the holidays and look forward an increase in ritual participation and membership in 2020

Secretary

November is quickly approaching.  I hope that everyone has had the opportunity to ponder the Grand Lodge proposals that we will be voting on at the stated meeting.  One is a big commitment, and the other a pretty big change to how much we will transform as a fraternity in the coming decades.

Your individual opinions and the discussion of them will help greatly in determining how our Lodge is going to respond to them.

I look forward to seeing you all.

Fraternally yours,
Eric Willson

Fall is upon us, Brethren. In our Lodge this is usually a busy time as we have our Thanksgiving Dinner, Holiday Dinner, Elections, Grand Lodge, an Installation, and our usual course of business meetings. We may even have some degrees in there as well.

This is an ideal time to step up and learn a part, get involved, or try something new in Masonry. We have so many opportunities for you. Don’t hesitate to speak to myself or any of the Brothers to talk about your ideas on how you can improve yourself in Masonry.

Brethren, November is already upon us.  November 6 stated meeting we’ll be having Pizza and salad.  Family Pot-Luck dinner will be on Wednesday November 20th which is the third Wednesday instead of the forth Wednesday where Thanksgiving covers the fourth Wednesday. The Lodge will provide the Turkeys.

I will have a sign-up sheet for the potluck for the November Family Dinner. The list will be started at the Oct family dinner, and at the same time there will be a sign-up list for the Christmas party (Children Gifts).  Thanks to all of you for continued help.

I’m pleased to report receipt of even more petitions requesting Degree work of Freemasonry recently.

They are testaments of the reputation of the fraternity and Mt. Moriah #39 in particular.  I remind you that the fees for initiation are to accompany the completed petition. These new petitions will be read at the next communication.
