I hope this message finds you and your families doing well.
Saturday was the Lodge’s as well as the jurisdiction’s Open House. Thank you to Brothers RW Mike, Mike G. and Bob D. for helping to man the event. The Lodge looked great with our banners and a little bit of clean up. We even set up the Lodge as though a meeting was to be had. I hope we will have more visitors next year.
We quickly shifted gears at the conclusion of the Open House and went back into Table Lodge mode. The prep for the event was done on Friday and lasted well into the evening. Saturday saw the final prep and the event going off as scheduled at 1800. I was very excited to have a sell out of 52 Brothers joining us for excellent fellowship and food. My thanks to the kitchen crew lead by RW John and the serving crew led by RW Mike. Once the toasts had been completed and bellies stuffed it was time for the clean up. We had so many Brothers stay and assist after a long day we were able to complete it all – a testament to the commitment of everyone – THANK YOU ALL. The proceeds from this event are being donated to the Silas Bunnell educational fund.
The Grand Lodge semi annual meeting and election of Officers for 2015 will be held this coming Saturday 25 October. The meeting will be at Lyman Hall High School in Wallingford. The meeting will begin at 0900 and a box lunch will be provided. The Wardens and I will be in attendance. I hope we will have a great turn out from Putnam 46 Brothers to support RW Mike on his continued journey to the Grand East. If you’d like to go with us let me know, we will carpool from my house. Wardens you must remember to bring your packet with you.
