Bulletin and Summon of Stated Meeting December 19. 2015


WB Pat D. Noel
Worshipful Master

Brethren, we have reached the end of the year and it has been our tradition, nay, obligation, that we elect our next set of officers for the incoming year.  I call upon our qualified members to be present to practice our privileges of selecting our stalwart officers who will lead us in 2016. 

On my part, I have done what I can do in my capacity as your Worshipful Master.  Thank You very much for your support during my term.  There are still a lot of things to be done, a lot of things to be accomplished.  I sincerely hope that our lodge will continue to improve in the coming years, especially on membership, attendance, and worthwhile projects not just for the community but for the lodge itself.  We must be able to stabilize our team before we can go out and share our blessings. 

We must elect and choose wisely our officers and support them fully in their endeavors.  Our physical presence is more important than our verbal support.  This, and of course the financial obligation that we must fulfill for the success of our lodge.  We must continue to show our commitment to the fraternity in general and to the lodge in particular. 
I would like to thank our SW Bro. Ivan Banaag for taking good care of the lodge last November while I was out.  The passing was done in flying colors and I welcome our newly passed brother, Bro. Lee Michael Caballes.  Hopefully, he will be raised before the new set of officers will be installed next year.

Brethren, I would like to remind everyone of our obligations to our beloved lodge – pay our annual dues on time; attend stated meetings; elect officers; prepare for next year’s activities; prepare for the ANCOM; prepare for the installations; prepare for the proficiency exams; prepare for the candidates initiation, passing and raising; and many more! 
Lastly, this month is also the birth of Jesus Christ.  For us Christians, it is a month of celebration, of forgiving, of giving, of sharing, and of Love.  Let us rejoice by sharing a dinner not just to have fellowship among brothers, but to share it with our loved ones.  May I therefore request that the brethren bring along our sisters to have a simple Christmas Dinner with us.  This invitation is extended to everyone – Christians and Muslims alike.  For God has taught us to share Love especially on Christmas day! Happy Holidays everyone!
