I hope that you and your families are well and preparing for the winter season. Last month, the regular and emergent meetings were excellent. Our Director of Ceremonies, led us through a first-rate Rusty Mason Night. It was a successful evening of interactive review and discussion. Many Thanks to W. Bro. Rob Uhrig for such an exceptional evening.

Our emergent meeting saw Bro. Derek Brook being passed to the second degree. Bro. Brook’s work was of an superb standard and reflected well on the efforts of his sponsors. The work of the degree team was also of the highest standard. Well done by all.

This month will be a busy one. The work of our regular meeting will be an Empty Chair Ceremony. We will pay our respects to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice during the wars and those brethren who have passed to the Grand Lodge Above. As this will be in conjunction with Remembrance Day, past and present service members may wear medals and decorations in accordance with the Constitution. There will be a practice in the lodge room for those involved in Saturday November 12th.

The work of our emergent meeting will be to initiate Mr. Joel Porter into Ancient Freemasonry. There will be a degree team practice on the 19th of November in the lodge room. This is another great opportunity to support the lodge by getting involved in the degree team. Please let me know if there are any pieces of work you’d like to try.

Lastly brethren, remember when you are in lodge you are among brothers. We are all here to support each other and experience the principles of Freemasonry – Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth. I appreciate your dedication to Acacia.
