DDGM Newsletter – November 2015

November Article

The cobwebs of Summer have been brushed away and September and October have seen the reopening of all our Quarries and we have all returned to our Labors. Our tasks are upon the Trestle-Boards and it appears we have much to do. We are looking for new members; We are investigating Petitioners; We are Balloting and preparing for the Degree Work ahead. We are overwhelmed with all that we have to do! Am I describing YOUR Lodge? I hope so!!

It would really be wonderful if we could channel all our efforts into what I just described in the above paragraph. We all know that the business of operating a Lodge entails soooo____ much more. Paying the Bills; Upkeep of the Building; Raising Funds; Addressing all those challenges we all face each day, week and month just to keep the doors open. It ain’t easy.

Remember your obligations to your God, your Country, your Neighbor, your Family and Yourself and Always remember that you are a Member of the Greatest Fraternity in the World, and act accordingly. NO ONE could expect you to do or be more.

Official Visits in October were at NorthRose-Wolcott, Savannah, Wayne and Pultneyville. This month Newark will be on the 2nd, followed by Drumlin Square in Palmyra on the 4th and ending in Marion Lodge on the 10th. All meetings will begin at 7:30 PM. Contact your Master and/or Secretary for details.

May you and and your families all enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving Dinner. Remember those brave Pilgrims who came before us, asking the Lord’s Blessing on their 1st harvest and sharing with their Native friends. Remember all those blessings we now enjoy, and think of those less fortunate. In closing I ask your support for the Brotherhood Fund and the Masonic Care Community.
