Brethren, I am truly humbled and honored to address you for the first time as the Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 43. It has been an extremely rewarding experience for me to serve this Lodge in the past, and I am excited to continue to do so throughout 2019. There are very few Lodges that are still in existence that can trace their lineage back to 1785. Lodge No. 43 has been able to accomplish this not because of any one individual, but because we have always worked together in unanimity.

We truly are a band of brothers held together by the cement of love and affection. I am also proud to work with our current line of officers. Their hard work and dedication to the craft has positioned this Lodge to succeed once again. We have a lot of great programs and events planned for this year but they will only be successful with your help. Please do your best to always help your Brothers and to support this Lodge and all of its history and tradition. I look forward to seeing you all in 2019. 


Todd A. Bennicas, WM
