A View from the East

From The East I greet you. WOW! That’s about all I can say right now. I really owe every brother a great debt of gratitude for selecting me to steer the ship. The year has only just begun and I have an all new appreciation for any brother who has taken on this task. So far we have had an Installation, which I think went pretty well. St. George Lodge from Toronto seemed to enjoy themselves, and the fraternal bonds were strengthened by our time together. We have also remembered Pearl Harbor
Day, and had very nice Awards evening. Our Junior Warden conducted the Yuletide Visitations which always brings a smile to our brothers that can’t be with us throughout the year.We even had a visit from Santa and his friend the Bubble Lady at the Children’s Christmas Party.

All in all it has been a very busy month so far. The minutia of planning can be overwhelming at times; it definitely teaches you clearly that you cannot tend to every single detail yourself. I am humbled by the trust you have placed in me and I take this responsibility very seriously. With that being said I really believe this year is going to be a fun one. Our officer line has been working tirelessly to bring you great family events and I’d really like to hold to our steadfast traditions as well as introducing new ideas into the mix. Be sure to watch your trestle board for upcoming events. But the best way to know what’s happening is to come to lodge as often as you can.

Fraternally: WM Scott D. Clark
