I hope that all of you are enjoying a great summer with your families! After some mixed weather in June, the warm July sun is out in full force. I would like to take a moment and offer my thanks to all of the Brothers, Ladies, and Family members who made it out for the Lodge Annual and semi-public installation of officers. We have an amazing line of officers this year and they were all touched by the support!
Our list of candidates is growing by the week, and we expect to have another year of strong growth with high quality men joining the Craft. Between the degrees, intervisitations, special events, and charitable endeavors, this year should be exciting and fulfilling! Please involve yourselves as schedules permit, and absolutely speak up if you’d like to have a greater role in any of our Lodge functions. Many hands make light work. Brother Junior Warden and his team of committee members are hard at work planning the 2017 St. Johns Lodge family picnic. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, August 13th at the Masonic Youth Center. Let’s hope for some fair weather so that we can share food and fellowship with our families and guests.
I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
Edward D. Bertrand
