Masters Message



November is a great time to take pause from our busy everyday lives and give thanks to the All Mighty Creator of the Universe for the manifold blessings and comforts we enjoy.  There is power in gratitude. Take stock in what we have and give Thanks. 

Many of our Brethren have been very generous with their Building Fund Support. If you are considering a donation to support your lodge, please do so soon so we can capture it within the 2019 budget. 

 I look forward to seeing you at the November Stated Communication.
