Notice of regular communication of St. Alban's Lodge No. 6 will be held at 363 Hope Street, Bristol RI 02809.
Wednesday, October 11th, 7:00 PM
This month’s program will be the conferral of the Master Mason degree on our 5 Fellowcraft brothers.
The first two sections of the degree will be performed by the officers. The third section will be performed at a later date.
We had a wonderful joint communication with Hope No. 25. It was great that the brothers could join us here in Bristol. Sorry for the temperature in the lodge, we put a request in for low temperatures, but those temps didn’t arrive until a few days later.
I’d like to give a great big thank you to W∴ Jason M. Nystrom for the wonderful presentation, and training session on how to tie a bow tie, and R∴W∴ Andrew M. Giovannini for providing the brethren with ties to practice with and keep. It was a very informative and enjoyable presentation. I saw a few hand-tied bow ties in the lodge after that presentation. Hopefully, we’ll see more at the next meeting.
We had the distinct pleasure to welcome Most Worshipful Grand Master Douglas J. Grant, and R∴W∴ District Deputy Grand Master, Bro. Stephan H. Saraidarian for the evening.
This is a reminder that we are continuing our weekly rehearsals at 7 p.m. on Thursday nights when there isn’t a St. Alban’s meeting that week.
As it has been in the past, rehearsals are open to all brothers, not just the officers and all are encouraged to join us and enjoy a bit of brotherhood afterward. I personally can say, we have enjoyed our time together and have found the time for work and refreshment.
Please come join us if you can.
Robert N. Hopkins Jr.
Thank you to Worshipful and all for your vote of confidence that I may step in as Acting Secretary for the remainder of the year. I hope I may serve the office justice.
The holiday season will be here before you know it and we must prepare. I took over planning our Holiday dinner last year and I’m looking for assistance in this year’s event. If anyone would like to help me, please reach out to me as soon as possible. We need to make arrangements for catering, preparations for the hall, etc.
As another year passes since you were raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason. May your dedication and commitment to the craft lead you to a fulfilling and enlightened journey ahead.
