Happy Holidays to you my brother and your families! It's a wonderful time of year and a wonderful time for St. Albans. We have had quite the year I must say. Coming to the end of this year, we are still going strong and gaining momentum.
Our December meeting will be the Fellow Craft degree with a special middle chamber by our own Right Worshipful Deputy Grand Master Douglas J. Grant. I am excited about this event and I encourage all to attend! For those who love their ritual, you will be in for quite an evening.
I hope this message gets to you before our Holiday dinner which is scheduled for December 4th at 1 pm. We will be gathering on the second floor of the lodge for a family meal. I look forward to seeing all the Brethren and their families. This year for those who are interested in a Yankee swap, please bring one gift per person participating. Items are to be no more than $20 and are to be wrapped! I hope this event will be a fun one as they have been in the past.
Thank you all so much for a great year thus far. Peace and joy to you and your family this holiday season. It has been an honor to serve as Master of this lodge for the past year and I could not do any of it without you.
Danny S. Cordeiro
