Welcome Back! Brethren, I hope you and your families had a great summer. It is hard to believe that it’s almost over.
We had a great summer picnic hosted by Jenny and Michael Jackson at their lovely home. I would like to thank Don Learning, our Junior Warden for all his work in organizing the event. I would like to thank all the brethren who were able to attend the Grand Lodge communication this summer. As you all probably know by now, our new Grand Master is M.W. Bro Paul Todd from St. John’s Lodge in Carleton Place. It should be a very exciting next two years for the Ottawa districts.
Our Masonic Year starts off with Acacia’s traditional Grand Lodge appreciation night. It is always well attended by many members of Grand Lodge. The guest speaker will be R.W. Bro. Charlie Woods, Chairman of Leadership Development and Officer Progression, Board of General Purposes. I would encourage as many members as possible to attend as it would be a great opportunity to show our appreciation and interest. Please contact the Junior Warden, Secretary or me if you would like a ticket. We will also have the pleasure of presenting V. W. Bro. Ron Hobson with his 50 year pin.
I hope to see you there.
