I start this year full of excitement
and anticipation, looking ahead at
all the possibilities and
opportunities that this year will
bring. I'm honored to be the
Master of such a great lodge. I will
do my best to continue the good
work that this lodge is known for. In
an effort to do this, I have a few
goals this year.
The first goal is to earn the
Lion and Pillar Lodge of Excellence
award. This award requires lodges
to complete several tasks focused
across five categories: Education,
Patriotism, Philanthropy, Masonic
Membership, and Affiliated Connections. Each task is designed to
improve our lodge, its members, or the community.
Another goal is to encourage the brethren to become more
proficient in our ritual work. Our lodge is known for our degree work,
but over the years, we have lost several certified lecturers. I personally
love learning new parts of the ritual, and plan to become a certified
lecturer one day. It is this desire that drives me to encourage the
brethren not only to learn the ritual, but also to know it inside and out. I
will hold a monthly mini-school-of-instruction that focuses on a single
part of the ritual.
My next goal is to tackle a few lodge repairs and develop a plan
to address larger items in coming years. I will work closely with the
Trustees to identify and prioritize the repairs that our lodge needs.
Finally, I want to promote a theme of family in everything our
lodge does this year. I want to strengthen the fraternal bonds we already
have, make new bonds with our extended masonic family, and celebrate
the bonds we have with our personal families. We will have several social
events where families and friends are invited. We will include our
Rainbow Girls Assembly and Easter Star Chapter as well. I am also
planning brotherhood-building events where we will either volunteer at
a charity together or go on a group trip.
With all of these plans, it is easy to see why I am so excited to
lead James B. Green this year. Thank you for giving me the opportunity
to continue the great work our lodge is known for.
