Master's Message

My Brethren:

I want to encourage you all to be present at the 197th George Washington Birthday Celebration. This is a great opportunity to include our entire family and fellowship with one another as we celebrate Washington's birth. Many great events are planned for the day and tickets are selling fast. Contact any of the lodge officers to reserve your ticket.

At our first Stated Communication, Brother Jim Rees will be our guest speaker. Jim is the Resident Director of Mount Vernon. Jim will be discussing the early years of our Charter Master.

You will notice the Called Communications that are scheduled for this month. Please plan on coming out those nights and assisting us with the degree work. This is an opportunity to learn new parts and be an active and supportive member of your lodge.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Michael P. Bible
Worshipful Master
