New Master Elect Message to SP484 Membership  on 12/23/2023

Brothers,

A message from our new Master Elect. See below.

R&F, Guy

 

My Brothers,

I hope this finds you and your families healthy and happy.  My name is Tony Myers and I am your newly elected Master of the Lodge for the ensuing year – 2024. 

First, I would like to say thank you for entrusting me to lead our Lodge this coming year.  I will do my utmost to fulfill the obligations of this important office.  I would like to invite you to our Officer Installation to be held on the evening of Monday, January 8th, 2024.  We’ll have a meal with this event so be sure to bring your family or significant others.

We have started planning some activities for 2024.  We intend to do Lion and Pillar this year.  We plan to visit the Masonic Home for Children, Whitestone, and Alexandria, VA where we will visit several national sites, monuments, and potentially a tour of the White House.  Additionally, we’ll have a number of visiting brethren from the Grand Lodge Speakers Bureau providing excellent Masonic Education on various topics at a number of our Stated Communications.  Be sure to mark your calendars for the following: 

o  January 8th, 2024 – Officer Installation for 2024

o  February 5th, 2024 – Brother Chris Richardson of the Masonic Foundation will speak

o  February 21-24th, 2024 – Alexandria trip

o  April 27th, 2024 – Springfest 2024 – fundraiser with proceeds going to MHCO

Brothers, we currently have ten (10) candidates in the pipeline that are working towards being raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason.  This group of young men bring some new energy and perspectives to the lodge and we are appreciative of their motivation.  If all are successful, that will bring our membership to 102 members. 

As a further attempt to help the officers of the Lodge, I've prepared a survey. To help Southern Pines #484 grow, retain members' interest, spark an interest in getting involved, and help set the stage for our many newly petitioned candidates, I would greatly appreciate you taking the time to fill it out, please feel free to add comments/notes as needed. I'm always here if you would like to discuss any concerns or have an idea of how to help the Lodge in any way! A successful 2024 starts and ends with our members and their participation. 
 
Brothers, we hope to see you in Lodge when your cable tow and health permit.  God bless you and your family and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. 

Fraternally and Sincerely,

Tony Myers 
Master Elect, Southern Pines #484
