Master’s Message – September 2014

Posted by Brian Cayer on August 23, 2014

Welcome back from summer. I hope everyone had time to rest and enjoy themselves. Although we had not held our monthly meetings that did not mean everything was quiet for Lafayette. In June, along with 7 other Masons from the state, Brother Steve Acello, Brother Kevin Pellerin and I road in the MS-150. The lunch stop at Lafayette was also a nice feature to the ride. We also held the chicken BBQ in June. We had about 70 in attendance. A note from our temple president on the event: 80 lbs. of Chicken, 72 ears of corn, 40 lbs. of charcoal, 3 gallons of ice cream and 48 strawberry shortcakes – but Full bellies and great friends – PRICELESS! In August there were also two picnics held at Buttonwoods one for the Northern District and one for all Masons in the state. We also held our 2nd Annual Cigar Smoker in August which was well attended. Not usually a money maker for the Lodge but one of the best times to gather for fraternal friendship. Thanks Bothers Dave Becker and Kevin Pellerin for organizing the event.

The September meeting program will be on Military Medals presented by Brother Steve Hackett. The dinner will be meatloaf and all the fixings by Peter Kindeforski assisted by our Fellowcraft class. It will also be step-up night so come out and support the new officers as they test out their upcoming roles. It’s amazing how quickly our Masonic year is coming to a close.

Upcoming events:
Friendship Annual September 6th
Table Lodge at Moriah Lodge #15 in Connecticut on September 20th
Wounded Warrior bike ride on September 27th
Lafayette annual elections of Officers on October 1st and Semi-Public October 5th
We will also be doing the Master Mason degree for our current Fellowcraft class end of October.
