Master’s Message – December 2013

Posted by Brian Cayer on November 25, 2013


First let us welcome our four newest Master Masons – Jeff, Leo, Don and Ted. You four have past the first degrees and are only beginning your journey in Freemasonry, enjoy the ride! Remember you only get out of it what you put into it and I hope you will all be actively involved. As we are remembering the 50th year anniversary of JFK’s death let me edit a well-known quote: “Ask not what Freemasonry can do for you, but what you can do for Freemasonry”.

I want to thank Brothers Rick Gagne, Maurice Berube and Peter Kindeforski for roasting those turkeys and cooking such a great meal for the November dinner. Rick took some good photos which will be part of the collection I am putting together for the year. The November meeting was well attended with more than 40% of Lafayette members in attendance. We voted on a new affiliation –Manny Lewis; read a new application and another affiliation. Also, I heard of other possible affiliations. I think word is out that Lafayette is the place to be and we are glad to see our Lodge grow.

It’s hard to believe the Holidays are already upon us. In Lafayette tradition we will be having the Cumberland High School Clef Singers do a Christmas Carol Concert for us, sure to put anyone in the Christmas Spirit! For our December meeting an Eagle Scout candidate will be present to collect Toys for Tots as one of his Eagle Projects. I ask all Brothers coming to the meeting to bring an unwrapped gift with them, let’s all remember the less fortunate and give as much as we can without injury to ourselves and family. We will also present Franklin Farm a check for $650 from the money raised by the October Pancake Breakfasted headed by W. Bob Drisko. I am also working on getting order forms to be at the meeting so that anyone who wishes to can get new Lodge Logo attire. Remember we are going to be pulling the winner for the Big Raffle, sell those tickets.

Looking ahead we have Saint John’s Night on December 14th. The January meeting will be a Festive Board but not on the first Wednesday because of New Year’s Day but will be January 8th. I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season!
