Wardens and Brethren,
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving and had the opportunity to spend some time with family. As tradition continues, Franklin will be holding its annual holiday party on Sunday December 10. Details can be found in the monthly notice.
December is going to be another busy month for Franklin. It seems this year has been busy for us, but that shows our growth and commitment to the craft. Please take note that we will be opening early at 6:30pm. We have an amendment to the proposed bylaws that were sent to Grand Lodge to vote on, as the Grand Lodge questioned the wording on one section. We will then be hearing our candidates Fellow Craft proficiency before we begin our main work of the evening which is the Master Mason degree in its entirety. We will be having a few special guests for this joyous occasion of our candidates being raised, the Most Worshipful Grand Master Peter Iacobucci as well as RW DDGM Rick Baccus will be in attendance. I urge all brethren, if within the length of your cable tow to join us and support our soon to be newest Master Masons.
Lastly, my family and I want to offer our warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and new year.
May the blessings of heaven rest upon us and all regular masons,
Brother Ralph Brunson
Franklin Lodge #20
