From the West – Oct 2018

Greetings Brethren from the Station of Strength

It is now Fall and change is in the air yet viscerally special to our home as we welcome our second child into our family. I’d like to thank the brethren for all their kind words of support and prayers as we settle into our new family dynamic.

Autumn leaves is nature’s way of changing the guard and it reminds us that as from it we came, so to it we must return. But while we are here, living and breathing our Masonic teachings, we have an opportunity to leave our lodges better off than how we first received it. To pass the torch kindly and proudly to the next generation of leaders and to whisper good council in their ears. This is what it means to me to be an officer of our Lodge and I sincerely hope that while I certainly take away new and renewed relationships, our contributions make a lasting impact that will ripple throughout this vast expanse.

While the summer was somewhat quiet on the Lodge, I promise you the officers have been busy making preparations for the Fall and for the upcoming year. The website and trestleboard publishers are in transition and I look forward to our more improved way of communicating with our members. We appreciate your patience during our changing of the guard.

Sincerely & Fraternally,

Brandon Cook

Senior Warden
