Merchantville Lodge #119 F&AM
Brethren, I hope everyone is safe and well. I want to thank everyone who was able to attend the Scholarship Awards on June 9th. We had quite the event, well attended and most importantly we awarded 4 individuals scholarships, all of them well deserved!
Thinking about a message I think of this…“Remember you have promised to remind an erring brother of his failings, aid in his reformation and vindicate his character when traduced.” … Along with so many other obligations we’ve taken I find this one the most poignant at this time. Moving forward I know that everyone of us has his heart in the right place, wants what’s best for our lodge and each other but doesn’t always know how to go about properly conveying that message. The first step is communication, talk about it and above all always remain fair. Most of all be honest with yourself as well as each other.
Hope you had a Happy 4th of July and a great summer! I’m looking forward to seeing YOU in Lodge in September, God Bless!
