My Brethren,

It was a wonderful feeling to get back in Lodge last month and to see the smiles on familiar faces. Your support during our shut down was truly amazing, and augurs well for our resumption and regrowth.

Speaking of resumption, the Temple Corporation gave an encouraging update at the recent AGM. It was welcome news to hear that the Hall rentals are slowly coming back, and that the basement renovation is almost complete save for a deep cleaning.

Our Senior Warden is calling for an in-person CGP this month. We will take advantage of the time to do a short practice in the Lodge Room afterwards.

There will be both a Regular and Emergent Meeting this month. Lodge Elections will be held at the former, and our “Step up Night” at the latter. I hope as many of you as are able will attend to cast your vote, and to support next year’s slate of Officers.

While provincial Covid restrictions are lifting, the pandemic is not yet over. For certain, some brethren have health and home situations that will keep them away a while longer. We respect your personal choice to avoid attending lodge until it feels right.

I look forward to greeting you again, in person, and to our upcoming elections and installation.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Donald Learning
Worshipful Master
