My Brothers,

First of all, thank you for the trust you have placed in me as Master of our Lodge.  I think we have a strong officer’s line with S W John Arizzi and J W Mike Daniels as well as the junior officers coming up.  We have a consistent vision of masonry that hopefully will serve to continue to build up our lodge.  Plans are in the works to make this year a solid year of masonic work and education.  Later this spring we’d like to have a day of emergency first aid and CPR training for any brother who wishes to participate.  I’m placing some emphasis on learning more about our appendant bodies and bringing in guest speakers.  But brothers, the lodge is here for you.  We would love to hear what you would like to get out of masonry during this coming year.  If the lodge isn’t offering something please suggest it.  Working together we can make one another better men and improve ourselves in masonry.  Our Lodge will be better and stronger for your presence and participation.

Fraternally,

R.W. Bro. Michael Shrocki
Worshipful Master
Union Lodge #40
