Melissa and I recently added to our family this November, adopting a rescue puppy to shower with love and affection. We are quickly approaching that time of year where one makes extra time to focus on family.
No family is perfect, but the unconditional love between its members can brighten any dark moment and make joyous moments that much more memorable. We humbly opened our arms and hearts to Dex, and know he has found a welcoming home.
While focusing on family, I beseech all of you to also remember our Masonic family as well. It has been a difficult two years, but that journey was made easier knowing that I had you, my brothers standing beside me.
As I get ready to pass the torch on to the next Worshipful Master, I look out at my brothers and am comforted knowing the Columbine Lodge has a strong foundation.
Most importantly we need to reprime the prospect pipeline that Covid has decimated to bring in new life, blood, and ideas to the Lodge. Covid has focused our attention upon the things and ideas worth our attentions and energy. For good men who are seeking to add a missing piece in their lives I urge you to suggest it be filled with Freemasonry. That is the next step in recovery for our fraternity and the Lodge needs your assistance. I want to conclude my tenure as Master wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Holiday Season and Happy New Year. May it be filled with warmth and love of your family. Ours will now also include some wet puppy kisses.
