Oneonta Lodge Dues Payments|
I am excited to be master for the 2020-2021 year and have a few things that I would like to get accomplished.
I would like to focus on security, preserving history, and performing degrees.
We have been researching getting cameras put around the building for a long time and I would like to see that finally get down. I would also like to consider putting a fence up around the perimeter of the property.
I would like a couple brothers work with the Lodge historian to do what we can to preserve the history of this Lodge. This building has a rich past and it is imperative that it is preserved. We also have a number of Entered Apprentice and candidates that I would like to see fully raised this year.
Every second meeting of the month I would like to have an educational talk about the history of Freemasonry.
My trestleboard is out lined below of our meetings and events for the new year. I’m looking forward to a fun filled and accomplished year and hope to see all of you there.
