FROM THE EAST Thanks to the Lodge for the support this year. We earned an Award of Excellence (our 4th in a row.) We end this year in sound financial shape, with the Lodge Hall HVAC equipment improved and with work underway to restart DeMolay. We launched a new lodge website. We started the year with a great Table Lodge and ended with the raising of a fine new Master Mason - James D. Smith. Give David George your full support so he can make his dreams reality for all our benefit. Join us for Elections and Installation. Bruce Burdick, WM

 

FROM THE WEST I look forward with anticipation to the coming year. Thanks to the fine slate of officers. Let's work to make this the best year ever for our Lodge. David George, SW

 

FROM THE SOUTH Have a great Christmas holiday and thanks for all your who helped me in the kitchen this past year. Billie D. Craig, JW

 

PILLAR COMMITTEE I am excited by the prospects of getting a DeMolay chapter going. We are finishing up the paperwork and will soon have our temporary charter. Please help the Advisory Council with the work of getting this back going again for the future growth of our Lodge. Michael Flatt, Jr. SS, Chairman
