Happy new year Brethren!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones. Reflecting back at the first half of the masonic year, I can’t help but be thankful and proud of St. Andrew’s and all the support you have shown. As we now begin the second half of our masonic year, I hope you are ready as this year marks our 100th anniversary. We have many great events lined up.
V.W.Bro. Kinastowski and his team continue their excellent work with the Centennial planning and progressing very well. I have no doubt It will be an excellent celebration.
Our January Regular Meeting has been moved to Friday, January 10, 2020, as it would be to the day, 100 years that St. Andrew’s was officially constituted. We will have a short history of our lodge read out and after the meeting, we will enjoy a delicious festive board put on by Big Dawg Catering.
In February we will be celebrating Robbie Burns’s night with the traditional Scottish fair and I encourage you all to attend and to invite a guest.
The Valentine’s Charity Ball is also a fun event not to be missed.
In March comes the big 100-year celebration. If you are able, I highly encourage you to attend as this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of our great lodge history.
That’s only the first three months, and in between, we will be conducting a possible third degree and two new candidates might be on the radar.
As you can see, we will definitely be busy but I have no worry that with your continued support and enthusiastic involvement, we will be successful in this historical year.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
Elias Lakkis W.M. 2019-2020
