A Message from the Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 43
May 2017 MESSAGE FROM THE EAST: Brethren, I look forward to seeing you at our May Stated Meeting, and wanted to thank you all for a successful Widow’s Program last Month. We received positive feedback from many of you. This month we will continue our promised discussion about the George Washington statue to work toward finalizing the Lodge’s plan for him this fall. Also, if you missed last Month, a permanent sound solution was approved between our Lodge and Lamberton Lodge No. 476. Dates for installation are forthcoming, and we will keep you all abreast. We have an interesting program this Month as well, and hope to see you there. Lastly, we have many candidates in the pipeline this Month, and three Extra Meetings, including our own One Day Class, May 13th, by dispensation. Please try to attend these and show your support.
Thomas J. Quinn
Worshipful Master, Lodge No. 43 F. & A.M.
The statue of the Masonic Worshipful Master was carved in 1996 during Nat Gilchrist P.M. year as Worshipful Master. The intent was to have it passed each year to the incoming Master to enjoy in his home for the his year, then pass it on. Years of travel hasn’t taken its toll on him too badly, although his gavel has since broken off.
