I hope that by now everyone has recovered from our very long winter, and this article finds you well.
At our first meeting in May, W Toby Shelley gave the Grand Lodge annual report, and we elected officers for the ensuing year. I was (and still am) both honored and humbled to be selected as your next Master of the Lodge. Our Wardens for the ensuing year will be Bro. Mark Kulik as JW and Bro. Ernie Maffei as SW. RW Earl Tuttle will remain as Lodge Secretary, and Bro. Chuck Chernoff will take over the Treasurer’s duties from W Lew Reid, DSA. I would like to thank W Reid for his many years of service as our Lodge Treasurer. On June 4th the evening will be dedicated to the installation of our incoming officers. A family picnic is slated for our last night of the year June 18th. Details to follow. June 22nd, the lodge will be a main sponsor of a walk to benefit the clinic in South Sudan. W Jack Howard is the POC. I encourage all that can attend, to walk with both the lodge and the community that day.
Lastly, I would like to thank W Toby Shelley for his past two years serving as our Master. Like those before him, he has left us better off than he found us, thanks Toby.
I will see you on the level my brothers.
