Master’s Message – January 2011

Posted by Brian Cayer on December 29, 2010

Greetings and Happy New Year Brethren,

2011 has arrived! We have entered our 50th year as a lodge. I am excited to begin this historic year and look forward to sharing memories and making new ones with you my Brothers.

At our January meeting we will remember and recognize MW Irving Tucker the Grand Master who , in 1961, gave his dispensation allowing Lafayette to become a lodge. We will also present Franklin Farm with a check for $1100, the proceeds from our benefit Pancake Breakfast. The Breakfasts have raised $1000 in each of the past two years for the Farm, thank you to all who helped. David Balfour, the Chair of the Historic District in Cumberland will give us a history of the town of Cumberland.

On December 18th 2010 St. John’s Night was celebrated at Lafayette. The Brethren did an excellent job with dinner, thank you to MW Steve Smith and his crew for all their hard work. RW Andy Gregoire spoke about the Sts. John and shared the stories of their lives as revealed in the Gospels, thank you Andy for an interesting lesson. We then retired to watch Laurel and Hardy with our guests who included our Grand Master and his Lady, a good time was had by all and I hope the tradition continues for many years to come.

During this coming year I plan to continue the relationships we have fostered in the community and start some new. It is my hope that we can engage and become involved in the community of Arnold Mills; reach out to work with other groups toward the greater good, and continue to grow the Craft in this corner of the State.

Several important dates this month are January 8th DDGM Visitation at Roger Williams #32, January 15th, we will cook for Friendship #7, our part of the Northern District charity dinners, and Morning Star #13 annual and Semi public installation on the 22nd. I look forward to traveling with many of you, please keep these dates open.

Remember we meet the 1st, 3rd and 4th Mondays at 7 pm for rehearsal. Please come and see the officers at work and help out or just spend some time with the Brethren.

Bob Drisko,
