I would like to wish everyone a happy new year, and hope that your holiday season was a blessed one, filled with joy, happiness, friends and family. As we look forward to 2014, I hope that the New Yea finds you and yours in good spirit, good health, peace of mind and joy of heart.
I am looking forward to serving as your Worshipful Master for this Masonic year, and would like to than all the brethren for their support and encouragement in elevating me to this position. I will do my best to repay that trust.
At our January stated meeting we will be introducing our incoming officers for the upcoming year. Please give them the same support and recognition that you have given me.
I know that you have all been busy with the holidays, family and friends, but please take a moment and check your dues card. If it says 2013, then you need to send your dues check to our secretary, Bill Fritz. This is an annual event, so please take care of this obligation as soon as possible. Thank you!
One last item that I would like to add… we only had one new member brought in this past year. If our fraternity is to prosper and flourish, we need some petitions. Choose wisely, but please talk to people that you know, and bring some more brethren into the Lodge. Together we can keep this Great Fraternity alive and well in South Williamsport.
I am looking forward to seeing you in the lodge this January.
S. Andrew Baker III, Worshipful Master
