As 2021 winds down and 2022 starts up, I, like all of you, am reflecting on the passing year. Our Lodge had faced many trials and tribulations over the past two years, of the kind that has not been faced in about 100 years. Our outgoing Master W. Bro. Jonathan Wilcox did an outstanding job of weathering them and leading the Lodge for the past two years. Thank you, W. Bro. Wilcox.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season and was able to get together with family and friends as much as possible given the COVID restrictions.
I am looking forward to 2022. We have a lot of interesting programs. For instance, at the second meeting in January, we will have special guest Ms. Karen Sumner, a representative from Network Coffee House, to talk about homelessness. For this meeting, if you can, please bring hats, gloves, and socks for the homeless.
We have several candidates and brothers still moving through the degree work. We will need support from the existing brothers for all the new degree work.
I wish all the brethren a Very Happy New Year. Thank you for your support.
Thomas W. Jones, PM
