We have now participated in two local community parades and they we very successful and fun. With the sisters of the Eastern Star joining us it was a very impressive impact. I encourage our Lodges to utilize the new sign that has been made up and to march in the parades. Remember to contact me for dispensation to wear our aprons in public. Thank you Brethren for all you do and making my position as your DDGM a pleasurable one. I couldn’t do it with out you.

Masters and Wardens meeting

I want to thank everyone who could attend the meeting last night in Belleville, it was very nice to sit and talk to the new Masters and hear some of their ideas for the up coming year. It always seems to energize the moral and welfare of the Lodges. Thank you all again.
