Master’s Message for September, 2019
Dear Brethren, I hope that everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer.
The Concordia Lodge mentoring and instruction team has begun meeting on a bi-monthly basis in Jenkintown. Meetings are held on the Saturday’s before our extra and stated meetings beginning at 8:00 A.M. Contact Brother Vincent J. Negro, J.W. for more information and an updated schedule.
There is still a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done for our 225th anniversary. Contact Mark “Spark” Vandzura, S.W. if you would like to help plan our upcoming anniversary year.
In addition to our fall trip to Hershey and Ladies night I will be planning another kids event around Halloween. We will also have our traditional holiday party in December.
All brethren who are in possession of Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania ritual books will need to return them to me by our September stated meeting. The books will be reviewed by Samuel Freeman, District Deputy Grand Master.
Any members wishing to serve the lodge as an elected officer must make their desire known to me by September 1, 2019 to be included in the October lodge notice. Sincerely and Fraternally, Brother John J. Beaver Worshipful Master
