Worshipful Master Frederick A. Marotti
From The East
My Brothers and friends of Hiram Lodge No.1,
Here we are at the beginning of another great year in Masonry. The holidays have past where we were able to spend much needed time with our family and friends. I hope your New Year was "rung in" in equally joyous fashion. I am truly blessed and humbled to be able to be part of such a wondrous institution steeped in the history of this country. I am thankful for all my Brothers and Officers who put their faith in me to be Master for this our 270th year since being chartered.
We are in store for a fulfilling and exciting year for us and those important to us in our lives. We must never forget our ladies who, without them, we would not be able to be doing what we do. So, to honor them we are having our annual Valentine’s Day Dinner in February, our Ladies Appreciation Day and Ladies at the Table later in the year.
We will be having a St. Patrick’s themed Table Lodge in March inviting all of the Lodges represented in our Temple at 285 Whitney Ave. Additionally, one of the first major events of the year will be The St. Patrick’s Day Parade. I hope to have at least 40 Brothers marching alongside a 65-foot float where our older Brothers and our families can ride. I believe this will be a big boost for the fraternity in our community to have such a show of solidarity. As always, participation will be open to the 4th Masonic District and to any Brother from any district who wants to march.
Other events planned for further into the year are a summer picnic with Trumbull Lodge No. 22 where families are invited and a picnic at Lake Compounce. I have many more fun projects planned that I will talk about as we get further into the year.
I am especially looking forward to seeing the fine work continuing through our Education Committee. Bro. Al Johnson and his team have done an incredible job providing education for our newest Brothers. This year, I hope to step up Lodge proficiency through the Education Committee, mentorship and holding our newest members to high standards before progressing to the next degree.
In closing, please if you have not been to Lodge in a while contact me and let’s talk. You won't be criticized for not coming or if you have forgotten what to do. In fact, all Brothers are welcome in the Lodges of Instruction for a refresher! If you are a rusty Mason we will get you back on track to enjoy your Lodge and our fellowship.
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!
God bless us all and God bless America.
See you at Lodge my Brothers.
W.B. Frederick A. Marotti
