Brothers of Acacia,

First, I would like to congratulate our newest Master Mason, Bro. David Perkins. Special thanks are extended to the Shriners Degree team who did an exemplary job of Raising Bro. Perkins to the Third Degree. We were also pleased to welcome our District Deputy Grand Master R.W. Bro. Jim Bowman who attended this Regular Meeting on October 18, 2022.

Bro. Chris Zuger, was ably invested as our Inner Guard by W. Bro. Don Learning. October has come and gone. November is the time to remember our past and present veterans. We will be conducting our Empty Chair Ceremony at our Regular Meeting on November 15, 2022. We will also be voting on a Candidate for Initiation, Mr. Mathew Vansetters.

As most of you are aware, W. Bro. Sam Roberts has indicated he will be putting his name forward as a candidate for DDGM for Masonic Year 2024-25. I fully support this announc ement and woul d we l come comments from any of the members of Acacia Lodge with respect to W. Bro. Roberts intentions.

In closing I hope you had a happy Halloween and enjoyed the spooky costumes that visited your door.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

Frank Sigouin
Worshipful Master
