Master’s Message – December 2009

Posted by Brian Cayer on November 28, 2009

Greetings Brethren,

November was a great month thanks to the efforts of so many members. We had 50 people for a great turkey dinner, received 8 officers from the Elks and rekindled our friendship with Bristol lodge. Many thanks to Don Dolphin for the history lesson and Stanley Sorrentino for his great words, and Rev. Scarlett for his contribution of the 1890 version of the Trestleboard from our juris-diction. This month we will be having a ham dinner @ 6:30pm fol-lowed by the Cumberland High School Clef Singers. We will be opening lodge @ 6:00 pm then recessing for dinner and conducting business after the program.

My brothers have you ever wished you had done something for someone or handled a situation differently? I hear from many lodge members of things that we should have done in the past. I am sure that many members feel they were forgotten or undervalued. As Master I now realize we are bearing the fruits of the trees you planted. In your own heart you know how you helped and that is the most important thing. I know I have already made mistakes as Mas-ter by forgetting to thank someone and by making some decisions that some may not have agreed with. I believe it’s time to “right a wrong”. That means if you can make amends or make something right then just do it. I know we can’t fix everything but if we all did just one “right a wrong” imagine the impact. If you know of some-thing that can be fixed, let me know and as Master I will try to “right a wrong”. Remember, we all took an oath of brotherhood.

There will be a temple association meeting at 7:00 pm on Nov 23 at the lodge. Please send any agenda item prior to the meeting to Bill Bundeff.
We will be having a St John’s night on Dec 19th @ 5:00pm. This will be a casual night including family and friends. We will be having lob-ster salad (or chicken salad) and clam chowder. The cost will be $10 or less. We will have a short talk about St John’s followed by a fun movie with popcorn. There will be some raffles and surprises. Steve Smith is coordinating and is looking for volunteers to help.

Bill Bundeff, Master
