Master’s Message – November 2010

Posted by Brian Cayer on October 31, 2010

Greetings Brethren,

I want to congratulate the officers on their elections and thank them for accepting their appointments. I also want to thank the Members for their confidence in electing me Master for the ensuing year. The installation was a wonderful time and I thank all who had apart in it. I especially want to thank RW Steve, McGuire and W Bob Sweet for their excellent ritual and W Chris Hallstrom for the prologue.

Masonic Sunday at Sayles Memorial Congregational Church on October 10th was attended by Brethren of three local lodges, Lafayette, Mount Moriah and Jencks. There were 12 Brothers in attendance and it was great to join in worship with them.

Lafayette Lodge is the proud sponsor of a team in the Cumberland Youth Soccer Association. The Lafayette Lodge team placed second in the boys under 10 division with a record of 5-1-1. Great job guys!

At our November meeting we will perform the FC degree on our 2 Entered Apprentices. The officers have been working hard. Please come out and support them.

For our November meeting the Ladies will be going Dutch treat to River Falls Restaurant in Woonsocket. They will meet at the Lodge and car pool to the restaurant. If we have a count we may be able to make reservations. When making your reservation for dinner please let us know if your lady would like to join them for their night out.

Mount Moriah’s annual meeting and installation of officers will take place Friday evening, November 19th . Joe Renning will be installed as Master. Please make it a point to come out and support your brethren in the Northern District.

The Grand Lodge Semi-Annual meeting and banquet will be November 20th. The meeting is at 1:00pm. All Master Masons are welcome to attend. Master and Wardens must attend or supply a proxy. The banquet will be held at the Shrine Club that evening. Contact Brother Secretary for reservations. Officers are free, they must pay for their guest. Remember we gather the first, third and fourth Mondays at 7:00 pm for rehearsal. Everyone is welcome, whether it is to help out or just for the fellowship. Hope to see you there soon.
