Master's Message

My Brethren:

As expected, this year has proven to be a very busy, but productive and enjoyable year. With the 2ooth commemoration of George Washington's death, many exciting programs and activities are planned. The success of these events rest solely on your participation. As the world commemorates the death of this great American and Mason, they will see Alexandria-Washington Lodge, because we were such an important part of his life and attended to his needs during and after his death. We are so blessed to have this opportunity to educate the world about our great craft. Support your Lodge and be a part of this exciting year.

At our Stated Communication on June 10, we will be holding a Joint Communication with Andrew Jackson Lodge and Cherrydale the North Lodge Room. This Joint Communication is to honor Most Worshipful Stewart Wilson Miner, Past Grand Master of Masons in Virginia. Many of the Grand Lodge Officers of Virginia and D.C. will be in attendance.

On June 26, the Grand Lodge will dedicate the Masonic Emblem in front of the Memorial. As many as 10,000 masons may be in attendance. As the lodge that created the memorial, we need to play an important role in this event. We need your assistance in staffing the lodge room and gift shops for that weekend. Please contact me if you are able to assist.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Michael P. Bible
Worshipful Master
