It is truly an honor for me to have been elected as your Worshipful Master for 2018, and I pledge to do my very best to carry on the great tradition of leadership that has been so faithfully maintained by all of the great men who have had this privilege before me. I am humbled to be able to count myself among the esteemed Masters of this Lodge and I am looking forward to an outstanding year!
I would like to express my gratitude to all of the Brothers who have served so faithfully as Officers during 2017, and who will be serving as Lodge Officers this year. It is wonderful to have such a dedicated group of Brothers, who all have such passion for the craft, and such commitment to helping our Lodge be the best that we can be.
We have much to do and I look forward to the continued support of not only the brothers who have always been there when needed, but more importantly seeing the newer members get involved and learn what it is that attracts us to this fraternity and the voyage we have embarked upon.
I will be seeking this year to continue to have Masonic Education be one of our primary areas of concentration, so that we may have many opportunities to learn and reflect upon the lessons that Masonry teaches us in our pursuit of becoming better men.
In closing, I hope everyone has had a safe and happy holiday season; a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and Happy New Year’s, and I look forward to seeing all of you, and serving all of you in 2018!
