What an outstanding degree we had last night! What a great event, as our newest Brother started out!
First off – Happy Thanksgiving to all! We have much to be thankful for! We can thank The Great Architect for every breath we are granted. We can be thankful for our families, both near and far, who love us unconditionally. We can be thankful for our work, both that which we are paid for and those labors of love with which we’ve been blessed. We can be thankful for our fraternity which allows us to come together as brothers in peace and harmony. We can be thankful for our communities which offer opportunities to serve the greater good of mankind. Finally, we can be thankful for ourselves; for our sound minds that are always seeking light, for the strength in our bodies that lets us toil in the quarries, and for our openness to a relationship with our creator. We are all blessed!
This Saturday we will be decorating the Lodge Christmas tree, and I’d like to ask all of you to think about bringing an ornament with you to add to the tree. This is an event for all – so bring your families with you! We’ll have some pancakes starting at 8 A.M. with some holiday music playing in the back ground and afterward we’ll start trimming that tree!
I look forward to seeing you all there.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
