Master’s Message for February 2019 

Dear Brethren,

As spring approaches, I look forward to some of our outdoor activities. We will once again take part in the Jenkintown Parade on Memorial Day. Our spring trip to Old City Philadelphia and our Phillies game will take place in June followed by our lodge picnic in July.

I will also be organizing a few bike rides during the warmer months. I hope that many of you will take advantage of some of the beautiful trails in our area. Most of our rides will be on the Schuylkill River trail which is paved and flat. I also am planning some longer distance rides as well.

Brother Steven Morrison will be speaking at our March meeting on Judge Jeptha and we will also have our first official visit from District Deputy Grand Master, Samuel Freeman and the District C officers.

I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming meetings and events. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I want to extend my appreciation for all of those that took part in this year’s lodge audit.

Sincerely and Fraternally,
Brother John J. Beaver
Worshipful Master
