Master's Message

My Brethren:

At our first Stated Communication, Right Worshipful John P. Riddell will present a program on our Illustrious Charter Master. We are very fortunate to have a most informed scholar of Washington as s member of our Lodge.

The second Stated Communication is designated Warden's Night. Come out and support our Wardens in this traditional and annual rite of passage.

On October 2nd we will be laying the cornerstone for the new City Library located on Duke Street. This will be a public ceremony, which will be attended by the members of the City Council, the Mayor for the City of Alexandria, and other dignitaries.

As you can see, we have two visiting lodges this month. This is a great opportunity to see how other jurisdictions differ in their degree work and to fellowship with our brethren from around the country.

Sincerely and fraternally,

Michael P. Bible
Worshipful Master
