I hope this message finds you well, and prepared for the incoming winter weather.
This past week found the lodge busy in several different Masonic ways. RW John Rhoads, officers, and members of Putnam #46 were able to confer the Masonic funeral service for WB James Hilton on Wednesday. Thank you to all the brothers who attended that important emergent communication. Thursday night brought the very first rehearsal for the upcoming EA degree on January 31st; the officer team is excited for the three friends that will become Masons that evening.
Please also keep watch in future Master’s messages for donation requests - for both time and money from our temple corporation; this year many projects for the lodge have been proposed, and hopefully we will begin executing on some of them in the near future. Stay tuned!
Henry Ford once said, ‘Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” Funny, but profoundly true. This week, don’t say you can’t do something. Prove yourself wrong. It’s a short inspirational message, but probably hard to break that mold of the usual routine. Promise yourself, “I will do something different this week and stick to it.”
Do you know a brother, widow, or orphan of Putnam #46 that could use our help? If so, please nominate them for our Masonic Day of Caring, coming up on May 3rd. Any and all nominations will be considered by the brethren of Putnam #46 through April 3rd; please email them here.
