Masters Message




With January closing out the busy holiday season, hopefully we all took a little time to reflect upon and give thanks for the manifold blessings and comforts we enjoy. It’s easy to get caught up in the material side of the Christmas season, but please remember to pause and appreciate one’s family and friends. If you know of someone going through troubled times, don’t overlook the importance of sending a note of encouragement, giving them a call, or remembering them in your prayers.

January is also a time to plan for and establish goals for the ensuing year!  My company also agrees with this philosophy as they have scheduled their corporate planning meeting in California during the week of our Stated Communication. Regrettably, I’ll be missing our first meeting. W. Bro. Rex Kirkland has agreed to conduct January’s meeting in my absence. I am looking forward to joining you in February to rollout the overall agenda for 2019 as we celebrate the lodge’s 125th Anniversary this year.

In the meantime, I’ll be working to fill committee requirements and have the year rolling off to a good start.

From the Secretary





I hope every member of Matthews Lodge has committed to attend this years Installation Ceremony. The Worshipful Master is catering a wonderful meal for after the brief ceremony. Please contact him to make your reservation.

Please remember that your 2019 Annual Dues is due and payable on or before January 1st. It would be a monumental occasion if no late notices were mailed out (and less work for me)!
