It is with a lot of Civility that I thank those who have been at my side for the last year. We have had a few bumps in the road but the lodge has been able to go slowly over those bumps and keep on the road and not hit any trees. I wish to thank my Lady Jennifer for all her assistance this year, and also Agnes Porter for her help with the Stated Meeting Activities, Thank you to Brother John Porter for being at most of the Stated Meetings with her to collect the Dinner donations, Worshipful Merritt Read for always reminding me what is supposed to take place and when, Brother Brandon Cook and Brother Rob Morris for being very supportive in most everything I wanted to accomplish this year, including getting the web page back up and running properly. To Worshipful Phil Collins, what can I say to you for putting our Trestle Board together every month and helping me get it out even when you were in the hospital.
I will like to start by congratulating Brother Brandon Cook for being elected as master of Anaheim Lodge 207. I know that we will have a wonderful year with him as master. Additionally, I will like to thank the brethren for asking me to serve this year as Senior Warden. It will be both my honor and pleasure to serve the brethren.
First and foremost, I’d like to thank the brethren for their confidence and support on electing me as Master for the ensuing Masonic year. There will be a private installation held on Saturday, January 3rd at high twelve. Brother Paul Artelles has graciously offered his home in Tustin to host a BBQ lunch following the ceremony for all brethren and friends to attend (more information to follow).
