      • Greetings from the East! January 3, 2022

        Brothers,

        As the New Year is upon us and our work is to begin again, I want to start by saying thank you. I am looking forward to serving you as Worshipful Master and appreciate the confidence you have expressed in me. I truly believe that great things are in store for Olive Branch Lodge in 2022.

        This time of year, we tend to make resolutions, however many fall off as the year progresses. I am asking that you all take a moment to contemplate your obligations. As these should never fall off or be forgotten.

        As Freemasons, our obligation is part to God, to our neighbor, and ourselves. We need to strive to maintain our commitments and faith, remember to help those in need, and never forget that it’s OK to ask for help for yourself when needed. That’s what Brothers are for.

        We are all pillars of the Lodge and in that light, are also the support of the Lodge. Make an effort to attend if you haven’t, make a call to a Brother you haven’t spoken to in a while. Communicate any concerns or ideas to the senior officers or me. My hope is that this year we can experience more growth, continue the work of our Past Masters, and make our Lodge the place we all look forward to visiting. You have all heard fellow Brothers state that “it feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders as I come down the stairs”. Some of you may not have experienced that for a while with the turmoil of life over the past couple of years. Come back. Make this the year that you renew that feeling. Nothing is being asked of you except to be present. I hope that we can all work together and make the Lodge prosper Masonically and be what you expect of your Lodge. Remember, the Lodge was built by men, but made of Masons.

        Wishing you and your family a Happy and Healthy New Year.

        Peace and Harmony,

        WM Lee
