Hello to the wonderful Thundering 17th Masonic District,

 

I am most honored to represent our District this year as the Grand Master’s representative for our district. We have a great year of work and fellowship ahead of us, and as our Grand Master’s motto says, together we are stronger.  That is why one of the things I want to work on this year is to have a pool of three to five members from each lodge who are available (especially during the week) to help with Masonic Funeral Services. A Masonic funeral service is the “last” or final degree where we get to offer up our reverence for a departed brother, and it is important that he receives a proper goodbye.  Another area that I believe we are seeing progress in and need to continue working on is our presence in the community.  This is not just through social media, but also through a physical presence in our communities through interaction with our schools and community leaders. Let people know who we are and they will come to know us and understand us, that is how we grow.

     The Grand Master has asked each of his DDGMs to visit the lodge in their district four times. Two are working visits where we meet with the lodge officers and go through the DDGM visitation checklist. Two visits will be the “Official visit” where the Grand master’s message is delivered. One working and official visit are completed in the first half of the year, with the second visit completed after the installation of new officers. Additionally, Grand Lodge is working to start a database so that all lodges’ checklists are archived and searchable for future WMs, DDGMS, and Grand Masters.

    Finally, I want to thank everyone in the district for the amazing support you have already shown me and for the many pledges of help wherever and whenever it is needed.

 

Remember,

We are Stronger Together!!
