Our first stated meeting with the new officer corps was held on the 19th. As they work to adjust to their new duties it is apparent the lodge is in good hands. The Worshipful Master has an active year planned and the events will be announced as they get closer. It also appears that we will be busy doing degree work in the coming months. We will be doing a Fellowcraft on January 9 at 7:00 PM and an Entered Apprentice degree at 6:00 PM before our next stated meeting on January 16. We also received a new petition that is currently in the investigation process. It was with sadness that it was reported that Ruth Ann Werner, widow of Bro. Richard M. Werner SR., passed away after a lingering illness. At the November meeting of the Sixth Masonic District Association meeting our junior past Worshipful Master, Chris Hunt, was elected president. I am sure he will do a fine job.
As we enter the Christmas season let us each remember the reason we celebrate. I wish everyone a safe and prosperous new year. See you at lodge.
