From the West – June 2014

Greetings from the west …..

I hope everyone enjoyed the Grand Masters Official Visitation as much as I did! The Grand Master’s message was timely, and as our Lodge prepares to go “dark” for summer, we will have ample time to reflect upon it in greater depth. For many of us summer months are a time for vacations and spending time with our families, but, it also an excellent opportunity to practice our craft work and learn the memory work we rely upon so heavily. I would ask every brother to commit to spending some time learning a new part of the ritual. Every Brother can bring much needed relief to degree work by memorizing a single piece of a degree. In closing, I pray all of you enjoy a safe and productive summer filled with enjoyment.
