My Brethren,

With the beginning of March brings longer days and hopefully warmer weather as we get ready for spring. This winter brought cold temperatures and lots of snow to Ottawa. I hope you and your families were able to get outside and enjoy some
winter activities.

Our February meeting was a memorable night. Sitting in the East I can tell you nothing is more pleasing than seeing a full Lodge room. Our meeting began by Acacia Lodge welcoming
Members of Sidney Albert Luke Lodge who arrived to present the travelling gavel. They were followed by the Shrine Degree Team who attended and Raised a worthy brother to the Degree of a Master Mason. I also had the honour of presenting
a 25-year pin to W.Bro. Uhrig, recognizing his years of service to the Craft.

Our March meeting will include three short pieces of Masonic Education which I hope will inspire and expand our understanding and appreciation of the history of our Fraternity.

March also brings Acacia Lodge’s turn to present the Traveling Gavel. I hope your cable tow will allow you to join me on March 21st at Mississippi Lodge for this presentation.

I have been very pleased to see many new and old faces at our meetings this year and I encourage you to join us in Lodge even if you haven’t been able to make it out for a while and feel a little rusty. I believe one of the most important parts of being a Mason is attending Lodge. Should you require transportation please contact myself or the secretary and we can help make arrangements.
