Greetings my Brothers.

The Installation for the 2017 Officers has been held, and I have included a copy of the minutes of that Communication. Hoping to keep you all informed as to what is happening and what transpires in our Lodge. I am looking forward to a successful year as we work on growing our membership and learning from you what community programs you would like to see our Lodge involved in this year. Please drop me a line and tell me of your wishes or better yet come on out to a meeting and Tell us in person. Your thoughts are very important to me and the rest of your Brothers. Our next Stated Communication will be on December 6th with Dinner at 7 pm and the meeting starting at 8 pm. I pray that each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, And look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely and Fraternally.
