10-9-8-7- and so forth as the count down goes for the ending of my time as Master of Anaheim Lodge 207. It has been a pleasure to have served as the 147th and 148th Master of our lodge. We have had the extraordinary pleasure of welcoming many new brothers as well as experiencing the sorrow of the passing by some. In the coming year your new master Kevin will have the opportunity to present several Golden (50 yr) Veterans Awards as well as a Silver (75 yr award). Our Lodge will be preparing for the 150th Anniversary celebration of the chartering of our Lodge to be celebrated in 2020. Reminds me of the old adage, “How Time Flies”. Some plans have already been put in place for the celebration. As further plans are confirmed, they will be announced in due time.
The lodge is only as strong and prosperous as its members allow it to become. I am certain Anaheim 207 will continue to strive for, and accomplish that goal. The new officers are preparing for the coming year, support them and their efforts to continue the work of our Masonic Order.
Space prohibits the naming of all who worked for the good of the lodge in the past year, just look to our membership roll and they are all present and accounted for.
Adele and I thank all of you for the kindness’s extended during my time as master, they are truly prime examples of Brotherly Love as exemplified in our Masonic Virtues.
December will be the last Stated Meeting I will preside over as Master. The following Special Meeting will be the Installation of Br.Kevin Stibich and the 149th Officers Corp of Anaheim Lodge 207. A holiday Dinner is scheduled followed by the installation of our new officers, Please come out and support them, in doing so you will be showing support for our Lodge.
In my final closing, remember “Real Men Wear Aprons” and I will add, “They Wear Them With Honor”
Robert “Robb” Morris
Worshipful Master Anaheim Lodge 207
