A Message from the Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 43
Fall is finally upon us and we are back in the full swing of Freemasonry. Our schedules may be full, but we are fortunate to have a schedule full of rich and enlightening events. This month we will be holding a Table Lodge. The Table Lodge is full of history and traditions, but most importantly it brings us a great night of fellowship. This is the one time that we can hold our Stated Meeting while enjoying dinner and the friendship of our Brethren. The Table Lodge this year will be slightly different from the past. We will not be meeting upstairs in the Blue Room. All Lodge business and the Table Lodge will be held downstairs in the banquet room. The Stated Meeting and dinner will begin promptly at 7:30 PM. If you have not attended a Table Lodge in the past, I highly encourage you to attend this one. Lodge No. 43 has been very fortunate to continue to increase its membership. Some of these new members will be attendance and experiencing their first Table Lodge. Let’s welcome them and show them what Freemasonry is all about.
Todd A. Bennicas, WM 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.
