Master’s Message, March 2017

My Brethren,

Our last regular meeting was fantastic!!  I know that W. Bro. Bruce Quinney was not just surprised but completely shocked!  The word went out and brethren came out of the woodworks to be part of this wonderful evening.  As you know Bruce is that silent brother who lends support where and whenever possible.  He is truly a kind, individual who makes me want to be a better person.  I want to thank you all for your participation, especially R.W. Bro. “Shepherd on the Hill” Burchill for ringing the dinner bell and getting the Hillbillies out.  Also, W. Bro. “Magoo” Chris Statham for piling the Klowns into a tiny car to be there.  The excellent words of remembrance by V.W. Bro’s Gordon and Jackson and W. Bro’s Lillico and Morrison had a very positive impact.  Finally, Thanks to W Bro Rob Uhrig for helping to end the night on a positive note.

Brethren, March will be here in a matter of hours!  On March 8th, we’ll be taking the travelling gavel to St John’s Lodge, Carlton Place.  When Doric Lodge brought the gavel to Acacia, they had a strong contingent.  I hope that we at Acacia can muster up a group of at least the perfect number to bring the gavel to St John’s.  St John’s will be tiling at 1930 Hrs.

Our next regular meeting will see our worthy brother, Bro Derek Brook, raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason.  No need to panic as the Shrine Degree team will be conducting the ceremony.  As we are coming to the end of the year, I look back and see you have done excellent work at every meeting!  You have shown dedication to the lodge and supported me.  In March, we’ll let the Shrine do the work and you my brethren, rest.  This will also be an opportunity to learn about the Shrine and the great work they do.  Enjoy the evening!  If you’re part of the Shrine degree team, thank you for your great work!!

Lastly, this month I saw the heart of our lodge come forward.  Three of our brethren lost a loved one.  I saw offers of condolences of all forms as well as brethren at the celebration of life.  It’s clear we’re there for each other, when we need that hand, when we want that hand and when we don’t want that hand but know it’s always there to help.  Lastly, this month I saw the heart of our lodge come forward.
