From The East

Greetings Brothers, 
The end of my year as Master is quickly approaching. This will be my final Master's Message. It has been an absolute honor and privilege to have served my Brothers and my Lodge. I truly appreciate all of the hard work and efforts in helping me through this year as Master of Hiram 1. 
There are a few more events that we have before the end of the year, which are, Cooking and delivering a Thanksgiving dinner for Life Haven on November 13th, as well as a Christmas meal for them on December 21st. Life Haven is one of the main charities we work with, and they really appreciate our delivered meals!  I would like to up the “ante”, by including a pillow drive for them as well!  Our goal is 25 pillows. They must be new and unwrapped.  I'll be collecting them from now until December 21st, when we deliver the meal. This is an important item for them, as they receive new families, they'll need new pillows. Let’s make this happen!!

I know it'll be appreciated. If you can't make it down to drop one off, I'll come to you and get it!
I'd like to personally thank my officer line for all of your help this year, especially Al, Clint, and Dan, for keeping us well fed, Bob and Sal for answering the million questions I’ve had.  You guys are the best!!
