Master's Message

My Brethren:

The George Washington Birthday Celebration was a great success. The Lord blessed us with fine weather and great fellowship was enjoyed by all who attended.

At our first Stated Communication, Right Worshipful John Price Riddell will talk about the Washington Pen Knife. The history behind this knife is quite interesting, and as you know, the Lodge is the caretaker of the original knife. We are in the process of replicating this great knife and Jack will have some information concerning that also.

At our second Stated Communication, Worshipful James Kincheloe will present a program on the Grand Lodge of Ireland in honor of St. Patrick's Day. This is a slight departure from my theme for the year, but I believe you will enjoy this informative slide presentation.

It is my sad duty to inform you that David Shepard Webber has resigned as Senior Warden. David is a full time graduate student and is no longer able to avoid scheduling conflicts with his classes.

NOTIFICATION: We will be considering the nominations for election of Senior Warden and Trustee at our March 11th Stated Communication.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Michael P. Bible
Worshipful Master
