DDGM Newsletter – April 2015

As we begin to prepare for Elections in May and the Installation of our Officers and Appointees for 2015-2016, let us all look back to where we began in September of 2014. I hope

that all of us have become more knowledgeable in the Craft. I hope that regardless of what Station or Place we have held in the Lodge, we have done the best job possible to fulfill the obligation we each took during our Installation and that we are ready to take on the responsibilities and duties that lay ahead.

In a few weeks, Grand Lodge will convene and some of us will be attending for the 1sttime and others will have been there and done that in the past. It will be an enjoyable and
educational experience for all who attend. I hope that each Lodge in Wayne District cansupport their current Master or a Proxy to attend.

On a more serious note concerning Wayne District, I ask each and every Lodge to look
hard and truthfully at their ability to function as a Masonic Lodge. This may be the hardest task
you ever will face as a Masonic Body or as a Mason. Can you continue as you are? Is it time toMerge with another Lodge? Is it time to affiliate with another Lodge and turn in your Charter?
Can you continue to exist as a separate entity? My Brothers, these are the hardest questions Ihave asked anyone to consider and they are the hardest questions you have to ask yourselves
and your Lodges, Our Grand Master likes to refer to our “labors in the Quarries”. These“labors”, my Brothers are your most important responsibilities.

Your District Staff is willing to help you in any way we can. If you need help to do Degree Work, ask for it. Do you need to plan a Information Night Meeting to attract potential Candidates, ask for it. Does your Secretary need help with MORI or do you need help with a Budget, ask. There was a time when you knocked on a door and it was opened. That door is wide open, my Brothers, KNOCK!

Support your local Charity and also your Masonic Charities.
