It’s only been a few short weeks since I’ve been installed as Worshipful
Master. I am very honored to serve this lodge and grateful for the support I’ve
received so far. Over the past months I’ve had the opportunity meet some really
great men and brothers whom I am happy to call friends. The journey that the
Grand Architect has placed me on has been challenging and rewarding.
I’m looking forward to continuing the growth and prosperity that
Merchantville Lodge has enjoyed over the past years. We have some exciting
events planned in the upcoming months and I’m always eager to hear new ideas
from our members. Keep an eye out for information in future trestle boards as each
event grows closer. Some upcoming events are the Sweethearts Night in February,
Table Lodge and the Gettysburg trip in March.
Recently, some brothers from our lodge and I have had the privilege to
attend the installations in our district. As I was sitting amongst our brethren I
recalled Psalm 133 that we hear in our Entered Apprentice Degree. “Behold, how
good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.” I can
honestly say that the time I’ve spent with these men has shown me what our craft
is all about. We are like minded individuals coming together to share in a greater
purpose of helping others succeed in their endeavors to make a positive influence
on the world around us. This is what we are about brethren.
May you and your loved ones share in peace and prosperity in this new
