~ February 2018~
From the East
At our January Stated Communication we held our annual installation of officers. It was ably performed by our very own R.W. Robert M. Porter, Past Master and DDGM of the Second Masonic District – Second to None !!! Thank you Brethren for the confidence you have shown in me. It will be an honor to serve our Lodge for another year. Thanks also go out to all of the other Officers, Past Masters, and especially to you Brethren for everything you do to support YOUR Lodge.
The coming months will be busy ones as we are currently working Brothers through the degrees. We also have a visit coming up to our Brothers in the Great White North at John Albro Lodge. We will be leaving for Halifax on May 24 and returning on May 27, so mark your calendars.
We are planning on hosting a Ladies at the Table evening on Saturday May 5, 2018 at the Temple in Nashua at 6:30 pm. This is something that hasn’t been done in some time. It is similar to a table Lodge but spouses and significant others are invited to attend. This will be a fun evening of fellowship and will feature a prime rib dinner. The cost is $30.00 per couple, or $20.00 per person.
Hope to See You in Lodge Soon !!!
