My Brethren,

I would like to welcome you all back to Lodge after a magnificent summer, and hope that you are as excited as I am to be a member of Acacia as we step into our 100th year.

Thanks are immediately due to W.Bros. Lillico and Harrison for their never-ending efforts on our behalf. While the rest of us vacationed, our Treasurer and Secretary kept the relentless machine of administration well-oiled.

Special thanks are due to V.W. Bro. Jackson and his Lady Jennifer who once again hosted the Summer BBQ. The feeling of fellowship was palpable and the Jacksons’ generosity, combined with the hard work of our Junior Warden, Derek Brook and his Lady Kelly, made it a great time.

As is tradition, our first meeting in the fall will be kicked off with Grand Lodge Appreciation Night.  This year’s GLAN banquet is being catered by V.W. Bro. Kevin Zeigler and promises to be a culinary treat. If you are at all able, I would encourage you to contact Bro. Brook right now for a ticket.

Even if you cannot attend the banquet, please join us at the meeting following where R.W.Bro. Dennis Saikaley will be our Guest Speaker.

If you have not been out to Lodge recently, there is no time like the present to see old friends. Should you need a hand with transportation, or know of a Brother that needs our help, please let us know.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

W.Bro. Donald Learning
Worshipful Master
