Worshipful Master  Frederick A. Marotti

From The East

    My Brothers All, 2020 will definitely be a year to remember. She reared her ugly head and ruined so many dreams for many of us. We have seen new life in the birth of a few brother's children and unfortunately the loss of some fine brothers. We have seen shortages and frustration. Masters of their lodges, our MWGM, AGM’s and DD’s who have waited in some cases many, many years to fill those positions had their year ripped apart with little time and little hope of recovery. These my Brothers are indeed trying times, but we as Freemasons must remember who among us shed their blood for this fine land. We must remember who we are and how we should be the shining light that perseveres to the end and who is saved. We must spread the cement that binds us as humans and Brothers. Least of all, let us not forget that there is a plan for us all and that the Grand Architect of the Universe is depending on us to carry that plan forward. Honor our heritage, be mindful of others and their opinions. As for our lodge, it will be some time before we're back at labor. Although the Grand Lodge has lifted their restrictions on degree work and stated communications we must follow a ritual that is not Hiram’s if we choose to broadcast on Zoom for all brothers. If not only 25 brothers and officers can physically attend lodge. Going back now will mean we'll have to social distance, our temperature will be taken at the entrance to the lodge room, we will be required to wear gloves and masks, not be able to have any buffet dinners and no fellowship in the temple. This will indeed be a difficult time for us. Doing degree work will be very different and I am not sure how many Brothers would want to return to lodge with these restrictions. With that said, I have suspended all summer Hiram stated communications. We are in the process of reviewing the state requirements and trying to revise our footwork to accommodate the mandates. Our inspection is tentatively scheduled for September so Officer’s should brush up on your Fellowcraft Degree. Pandemic is certainly not new to Freemasonry.  We made our way out of the last one a century ago and I am certain we'll make our way out of this one. With summer upon us I, encourage you to be safe, but also, go and live your life. Virus or not, all of our lives are merely represented by that little dash between the date we were born and the date we die. So live that dash the fullest you can.

I miss you all, my Brothers, and wish you a GREAT summer. Until we meet again!
