From the East

Farley W. Warner


It is my great honor to be your new Worshipful Master for the year 2015.  In keeping with my theme for the year, “Brethren learning and extending a helping hand, "we will have a program on this year’s theme about lifetime learning in Freemasonry presented by Wor. Neil Marple at our stated communication on January 19, 2015.  We have a great year planned for 2015, including activities such as York Rite Night, featuring our Virginia Grand High Priest, Don McAndrews. We will also have a Scottish Rite Night featuring Wor Mike Riley 33rd Degree, a Past Masters night, a Warden’s Night, a Table Lodge and Fraternal Visits to other lodges in our District and other nearby neighboring lodges. 

In March we will be presenting our District Deputy Grand Master, Ron Heald. Also, this  year in September we will be travelling to visit our good friends at the lodge in Rossville, Georgia.  There is also a special One Day Conferral for the Degrees in Freemasonry scheduled for August 29.  I would also like to emphasize continued development of our membership throughout the coming year – let’s all get out there and through our helping hands extended to our community and all persons in general we can spread the good word about Masonry. I hope this will help bring in new Brothers and thus continue to revitalize our lodge.  

In keeping with this year’s theme emphasizing education, I would like to extend an invitation to any of our Brethren who have papers or programs you would like to present them, let me know.  Also, remember our Simmons-DeRossi School and attend when possible within the length of your cable tow.  Finally, if you have any ideas you would like to offer for activities or for the betterment of our lodge, let me know.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

- From January 2015 Trestleboard
