My brothers, it is with great honor to serve as Worshipful Master for Lodge No. 43 for the upcoming Masonic year. 2018 marks the 233rd Anniversary of our lodge, just an incredible testimony of the great leadership of this organization.

I would like to thank all of the Past Masters, for having served as stewards for this lodge and for carrying on the traditions of this wonderful fraternity. I would also like to thank each and everyone of our members for making Lodge No. 43 such a great success. It’s through everyone’s efforts and talents that have brought us to where we are today, and I am forever grateful.

I hope to carry on the tradition of excellence in our lodge this year, and will be focusing my attention on enlightenment and providing a foundation for those looking to learn more about the craft. We have an exciting year ahead and I look forward to working with as many of you as possible. I am certain this year will be a great success and appreciate everyone’s involvement and encouragement.

I’m a firm believer in the old saying, “you get out of it, what you out into it”, and hope the fruits of our labor will yield amazing results. We have some exciting programs in store for the year ahead and I look forward to sharing all this with you at upcoming Stated Meeting.

Your Humble Servant,

Bro. L. Kenneth Bray III, Worshipful Master
