Greetings Brethren:

First, please allow me to thank you all for your faith and confidence in me and electing me Worshipful Master for the year 2018.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank Worshipful Master Frank Mangiero for serving two consecutive years in the East.

The Installation of Officers will take place on Saturday, January 6th at noon at the Lodge.  We will open on the Entered Apprentice Degree at 11:45am and will go into recess for the ceremony, which is open to the general public.  The Reverend and Brother Bruce Bellmore, Right Worshipful Grand Junior Deacon will serve as Installing Master.  The Right Worshipful Brother Richard C. Memmott, Sr. will serve as Installing Marshall. District Deputy Nick Ives will represent  Grand Master Theodore Nelson.  A festive dinner and reception will follow the installation rites.

Both January 8th and 22nd Stated Communications will be business meetings.  Our February 12th meeting will be a table lodge honoring the birthday and life of   Worshipful Brother and President George Washington.  Although the plans are not finalized, I am planning a program with a guest speaker on the life of Worshipful Brother Prince Hall at our February 26th Stated Communication, in honor of Black History Month.

Again, thank you brothers, for your faith in me.  My door is always open and feel free to call or text me at the above number.

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

Happy New Year! May you be blessed with health, happiness, and peace in 2018.

Our next meeting will be on January 4, 2018 and will be a Stated Meeting with refreshments following. Dress for the officers will be colored gowns and business suits. The officers will contact members via telephone if the meeting is to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

As we begin this new year, let us each take a moment to consider how our Chapter was in the past, where we are now, and where would like to be in the future. If we work together to develop and consider plans to move forward today, we can hope to build a better and brighter day for tomorrow.

Happy New Year Brothers,

We had a nice turnout at our annual meeting/holiday party at Lorenzo’s, with 12 Brothers and 7 Ladies sharing in the festivities. Our election of officers resulted in 2 officers changing positions and 1 new officer. Frank R. Mangiero, PM, will serve as Fellowcraft Club President in 2018 and I will be Vice President. Our new Fellowcraft Club Secretary will be Brother Rich Biela. Thanks to Frank for stepping up to President and to Rich for taking over in the important position of Fellowcraft Club Secretary. The remaining officers are the same as last year, and I appreciate their continued participation.

Our first scheduled Fellowcraft Club activity will be to go the the 2018 Connecticut Freemason Family Day on Friday March 30th at 7:00 p.m..This will be held at the XL Center in Hartford when the Hartford Wolfpack Hockey Team plays the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins. Call me to reserve the $15 tickets.
