Hello Brothers! I hope you are all having a fantastic summer and enjoying everything that summer has to offer. I’m not a big summer guy myself but I’ve been fortunate enough to take a nice family vacation which was wonderful and made all the heat and humidity worth it. As you all know, it’s almost time to get back into the swing of things with our Lodge. The fall and winter are sure to be an exciting and busy time for Meridian Lodge. We have been chosen to take part in the “Blue Wave” program by the Grand Lodge. This means that we are going to have the opportunity to grow our membership exponentially. We are already seeing a great benefit of having many prospective members in the pipeline. We have held a couple of well attended social events over the summer which have proven to generate a lot of interest from interested prospects. All we have to do is continue to do what we have been doing and we will see growth that we have not seen in a long time! It’s going to be a great rest of the year. I hope to see all of you in Lodge this fall to join in on what promises to be a  historic time for Meridian Lodge! Thank you Brothers for all you do for me and for our Lodge. See you on September 11th!    Fraternally, WB Michael Waite Worshipful Master
