For those who came out to the fraternal visit to Evergreen, thank you, it was a fantastic evening, nice meal and great education on the Shrines. I hope to get another good showing for the 6 lodge visitation this month at Nation Lodge in Spencerville.

It's that time of the year again to elect the new officers for the upcoming masonic year. It's your lodge, make sure you come out and cast your vote.

As my year as Master is almost over I find myself looking back and reflecting. The year went by so fast, a little too fast, I learned lots and really enjoyed myself. The part I'm proud of the most is I accomplished everything I had set out to do, we brought new brethren in, advanced brethren up, got new members and older member involved and had plenty of masonic education.

I found another quote that I'd like to share this month that explains Masonry very well and should hit home. "Masonic labor is purely a labor of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold and silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are earned and paid in their dealings with one another; sympathy that begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason." - Brother Benjamin Franklin

Sincerely and Fraternally,
