I’d like to thank everyone who came out to our Step Up Night meeting to see our new officer line in action as we initiated our newest Entered Apprentice. As was said many times that night, everyone’s hard work was apparent as evidenced by a great degree and I’m confident our ritual will only get better as the year progresses. I’d like to give an extra special thank you to W. Lancaster, R.W. Reed, and R.W. Ellston for their guidance and instruction at our weekly rehearsals, we could not have done it without you!
With less than two weeks remaining before our Annual Meeting, I’m finding myself reflecting back on my past years as an officer of Mt. Moriah and I know that these rehearsals are a big part of what makes us who we are as a lodge. I encourage all of you to come by on Tuesday night and see a rehearsal in action. If you can’t make it for 7:00 pm, stop by a little later for some fellowship and refreshment. Remember, if it’s Tuesday night, it’s Mt. Moriah night!
We start our Masonic year quickly after our Annual, starting with the Blood Drive on November 9th. While this is a bit earlier than usual I hope as many brothers who can give can come and do so. The holiday season is fast approaching and the RI Blood Center needs a lot of help around this time of year. Speaking of Holiday Season, the Children’s Christmas Party is also coming up on December 7th, which means it’s time to sign up the kids so we can get the list to the North Pole in time for Santa to make gifts for them all! This year you can sign up with the sign-up sheet hanging on the wall or via email to SANTA@mtmoriah8.org, you can also leave a message on the lodge voice mail and I’m sure Brother Secretary can forward it to the North Pole appropriately (Please provide child’s name and age).
I hope to see you all at the Annual on November 1st and am excited for the upcoming year!
