From the East – December 2022

November’s Stated was a very busy one. We started off with an excellent Dinner of Meat and Cheese Ravioli with pesto and Tiramisu for dessert.

After opening on The Master mason degree and receiving the District Deputy, we went to refreshment and I opened back up on the E.A. degree so our newest member could join us. After some housekeeping business, we held Elections for next year’s officers, and I am happy to announce the following new officers:

  • Master – WB. John Quiroz
  • Senior Warden – WB. Warren Burkholder
  • Junior Warden – Br. Matthew Cox
  • Secretary – MWB Don Stapleton
  • Treasurer – WB Larry Harmon

The other offices will be announced by the incoming Master along with his installation date.

Of course, we have the big Christmas Party coming up. I hope that many of you will drop by just to say Hi and have some good fellowship.

Also, at our December Stated, we will be opening the lodge and will have the Dicken Carolers perform and a short talk about Jobs daughters International by Hannah Clark, the Grand Bethel Senior Princess. And who knows, maybe some warm cider and Christmas cookies afterwards.
