Greetings from the East,
I would like to first wish you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving. With the holiday season fast approaching, recall the words "uniting in the grand design let us be happy ourselves and endeavor to promote happiness of other." So, I would also like to encourage you to reach out to someone in your life that you may have lost contact with at some point in time, whether that be a family member, friend, or brother, and make theirs and your a happier holiday season. There is also a lot going on in December's stated meeting. We will be learning about a brother who started his masonic journey on 3/14/1857 in our lodge, and became a war hero, and received the metal of honor. It is a touch story. December 4th, we will be at the Masonic Temple in Manchester for a Ladies at the Table Dinner, we will also be honoring brother Dan Hotchkiss for all of his hard work and dedication to the craft and his family. Tickets are $30 per person, and you can purchase them at the door. If you do plan to attend please RSVP me. So we have enough food for all. I also want to thank the brothers who came to the lodge and helped put the PM pictures up on the walls in the lodge.
WM Kenneth A. Colpaert SR
