From the East – Jan 2017

Brethren,

Another Masonic Year has slipped into the history books, we can look back on some good times, as well as a lot of hard work, well performed. We have welcomed many new brothers into our Lodge, as well as said our farewells and good byes to too many of our brethren. They will forever be remembered in our hearts as well as our minds. The jovial times as well as the serious times, all part of our memories.

We are looking forward to an outstanding masonic year, this will be assured if all of our brothers assist in carrying the load and assisting our new officers line in there many duties. Let’s support them in all of our activities including degree nights. Remember how memorial your degree nights were, lets help the new brothers have that that same great experience.

Thank you for all of you support during the previous year, and thank you for all of the memories. Support our new Officers and help our Lodge grow. You are all invited to the installation for our new officers scheduled for Sunday, January 22, 2017, at 2:00 PM. See you there, for the kick off of another great year.

Sincerely & Fraternally,

Hugo Ramos, HA

From the West – Jan 2017

Brethren,

I wish to thank my brothers for the honor of serving as Master of Anaheim Lodge 207 for the ensuing Masonic year. Your trust is appreciated and I will serve you to the best of my ability. As we are coming to the end of another fruitful Masonic Year, we can look back and feel good about our accomplishments.

The completed list of my line for the ensuing year will be announced at our January Stated Meeting. Your support for the officers will be appreciated and it is important for the success we are looking forward to in 2017.

As it has been revealed to us, Masonry is a progressive science and is revealed to us in logical steps. This is one of the strong points of our Order. Somewhere I read that “a lodge is just an extension of its members” Well, I believe that our members make our lodge strong with great growth potential as well as strong ideas and accomplishments. Let us all look forward to many years of member growth, both spiritual as well as physical.

Again, let me close with, “Real Men Wear Aprons”, an important observation of our Fraternity’s future as well as our past.

Robb Morris

Master Elect
