Let me begin by thanking you all.
This year has been a bumpy road, but we made it work and I couldn’t do it without your support. Each of you have helped or inspired me in your own way and I am grateful for that.
My message of alchemy and continuous self-improvement has not fallen on deaf ears. All of you have come together to form a cohesive team to keep the momentum of Freemasonry going.
I ask you all to keep that drive going. The momentum of rebuilding and re-energizing the Craft. This momentum of teaching and nurturing new candidates. And, of course, the momentum of new fellowship and fraternity, with all those that walk through our doors.
The Craft would be nothing if it weren’t for its members. You all showed me and our new candidates, and even some future prospects, why Olive Branch continues to be a beacon of Freemasonry.
Thank you again. I wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season.
