Spring time is once again upon us to help ease and lift our spirits. This has been a difficult winter to bear. Our fraternity has suffered great losses and many of us have had personal obstacles to over come.
There is always hope for the future if you believe and look for it. The hope I feel comes from the support of the Brethren that show up without fail to keep our lodge doors open for all those willing to attend. I am so very proud of our officer line for their dedication to the craft to ensure we passed our annual inspection with flying colors. Loyalty and dedication is a badge of merit in short supply with today's society.
On April 19th, we will be conferring the rusty nail degree for those who are desirous of rediscovering light in masonry. It is up to you to determine what you would like to receive from being a mason.
It is not a destination. It is a life long journey.
