I first want to thank you for electing me as Worshipful Master this year. I also want to thank Worshipful Brother Jeff Rawley for his outstanding service as Worshipful Master in 2015. He is a real motivator and did a excellent job governing the Craft this past year. The work that got done by donations alone (windows, refrigerator, toy drive) was outstanding and speaks to what the members of this Lodge are capable of accomplishing. With help from the officers in this year’s line, I know we can continue this excellent work.I would like to end with this quote from George Washington:
“It is most reverently to be wished, that the conduct of every member of the fraternity, as well as those publications that discover the principles which actuate them, may tend to convince mankind that the grand object of Masonry is to promote the happiness of the human race.”
Have a happy and healthy New Year.
Gregory J. Stevens,
Worshipful Master 2016
