Master’s Message

Dear Brothers,

Hope you had a great Holiday and Happy New Year, and welcome to another Masonic year with Concordia Lodge No. 67. Thank you for the honor and privilege you have given me to be Worshipful Master for another go around in 2017. As we reflect upon the past year and plan out 2017 I hope everyone has accomplished at least one important objective for themselves. It is important to look back and seek a new goal for the upcoming year, or continue to work hard for your previous goals. Life is short and time seems to past by faster every day, and we are always looking for more. Slow down and remember to make memories along the way, find truth, reason, hope for yourself and those around you. As Albert Einstein said “strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” Make something of yourself and help those around you that need help, even if they cannot ask for help.

We are extremely fortunate to have a legacy of strong past masters, a dedicated core of officers, and an active fellowship of Brothers. As we start out on another great journey I hope we all look forward to the many adventures we have planned for the year. 2016 was a great year and it has taught me a lot about taking care of the lodge and bringing the members and their families together.

Hopefully, we will have success in bringing the fellowship together once again and expanded on our learning, understanding, and helping others, as well as, ourselves. Here is a brief list of upcoming events. We will keep the calendar feature on the web-site with as much information as possible to keep everyone in the loop.
