Myself and your officers would like to welcome all of you back for our Fall season. I trust all of all you enjoyed your Summer! Things have been relatively quiet at the Lodge; we are still diligently working on the needed repairs related to the fire inspection. My plan to have at least a few new windows installed has to be set aside for now. After last year’s painting and carpeting, there was really no money left to do any major work this year, which brings up something that has been suggested. Perhaps we can start a “window” fund. Anyone willing to donate towards the cost of a window will have their name(s) put on them. I think it’s a good idea and I will work to see that started before the end of the year. We have Pirates Day coming up on Saturday, September 6. We can use some help with the sandwiches. Jeff,et al., have put together another Cigar Night. Please come out and support that as well. With that, it’s time to get back to work.Making good men better is what we do; there is another class of candidates in the queue waiting to be initiated. I look forward to them joining our fraternity. God bless you all and see you soon.
Robert Caffyn, Worshipful Master
