Master’s Message – November 2016

Posted by Brian Cayer on October 26, 2016

Greetings my Brothers!

I can’t express how excited I am to greet you on the level! We have so many things to look forward to this year. Mainly I’m looking forward to more opportunities to spend time with you in our warm and welcoming lodge.

This month we had our Annual meeting and installation, which was very well attended despite the torrential rain. Everything went off without a hitch and I thank all who helped make it easy for me to connect with everyone. A special thanks to the Prologue team; the guests all thought that they were awe inspiring. Also to the Installation team, headed up by our District Deputy Right Worshipful Robert Palazzo. We’re looking forward to having him back soon, as he’s agreed to host our Saints John night in December! I’m sure that he’ll be looking for some help so let’s all support him.

This month we had our Temple Annual and our Brother Sr. Deacon was elected Temple President. I am so
glad for the experience of being Temple President but I’m even happier to know that the Temple is in the good and capable hands of someone who shares our vision to have a well maintained lodge where our brothers and future generations of brothers will be able to meet in peace and harmony to practice
our craft.

November is the first of our programs themed around the seven Liberal Arts and Sciences. It’s our Thanksgiving Feast and the discipline is Rhetoric. And who better exemplifies that topic than Rev. Roger Williams, who will be joining us to talk about our beginnings as a destiny of belief
named Providence. I can’t think of a better time to bring a friend for dinner and a program. We’ll also be joined by some new friends who have petitioned the lodge and would like to get to know us.

This month’s Pancake Breakfast is on the morning of the 19th, and the Fall Festival is that evening. The Pancake Breakfasts are an important part of the Temple and provide both fundraising and a magnificent opportunity to showcase what we’re all about. Please mark your calendars to join me
for a delicious breakfast.

And so my brothers, as we embark on this new year, I am filled with hope and confidence. I wish the best of good fortune to the new line of officers. We have a good plan, and a great team. Every lodge member is part of that team. Each one of us plays an important part in the growing strength of
Lafayette and we need and want you to take advantage of the benefits of being a brother here. I encourage you join us in our craft. Still wondering about coming to Lodge? I’m sure there’ll be some sort of surprise in the program. You’ll just have to come and see what it is.

Yours in brotherhood, Steve
