Master’s Message for November, 2019 

Dear Brethren, 

As the year begins to wind down, I look forward to the upcoming holiday season. I would like to wish our Concordia Family a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope this season will provide you with much joy and happiness and I look forward to celebrating with you during some of our winter events.

I am currently looking for members for the 2019 audit committee. If you would like to get a glimpse into the lodge finances, this is a good way to start. It will require one Saturday morning to review the monthly fund reports early next year. Let me know if you would like to participate.

During our November stated meeting we will be honoring our Veterans and our Past Masters. Come out and join in the festivities and fellowship.

Congratulation to Brother Ryan Valderrama for being appointed as Assistant Principal for the Jenkintown School of Instruction, Brother William Moree, Vice Principal of the Jenkintown School of Instruction. Brothers Michael Gotlieb and James Clark for receiving their certification in Business of the Lodge.

Sincerely and Fraternally, Brother John J. Beaver Worshipful Master
