MESSAGE FROM THE EAST
Brothers, it is an absolute honor to serve as Worshipful Master for lodge 43 in its 232nd year. I look forward to continuing on the great path our lodge has endured throughout the years. I am so thankful for the opportunity to make a difference in our lodge, which has given so much to me. Through philanthropy, officer development, a focus on proper on boarding and maintenance of membership, social events, and public programs I hope 2017 will be a great year. I’d like to thank all who attended Abraham C Triechler’s stated meeting on December 19th where lodge 43 shined in more than one way. We successfully took possession of the districts traveling gavel and our Senior Warden Ken Bray was awarded his Master Builders award by our District Deputy. The traveling gavel is a program set into play by our Right Worshipful Grand Master and is highly sought after. Being that our possession is now public knowledge I assume our January meeting will be attended by not only 43 Brethren but Brothers from another lodge in an attempt to claim the gavel. I look forward to the First Stated meeting in 2017 and thank you all for the opportunity.
