From The Worshipful Master

Summer 2019

Sometimes I wonder what I’m a gonna do, But there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues…

It’s not quite summertime, but we’re getting closer. June stated meeting will be our last stated before we go dark. But don’t forget, we have an EA degree on June 25th and then our Summer Picnic on July 27th. If your last name begins with A-M please bring a side dish. If your last name begins with N-Z please bring a dessert. Victory will supply the meat. Don’t forget place settings, silverware, and drinks for your family.

May was the month of MMs for Victory. Congratulations to our two newest Brothers. A big thanks to McKinley and Canton lodges for their help with the FC team this year. The degree looks so much better with a full team.

October we are looking to have a Past Master Night, and September 21 will be our Awards Night. Hope to see you there.

I’d like to thank you all again for a great year. With our EA at the end of the month, we will have completed all the degrees we need to do for Grand Lodge requirements and then some. But more importantly, we did some really good degree work and have brought new Brothers into Victory. That’s just the first part though. When you see a new Brother in Lodge, talk to him. Engage him. Make him part of our family. He is more likely to come back and be a part of Victory if he feels welcome.

Have a safe, fun summer. Glenn Hartong
