Brethren, it is hard for me to believe my time as Master is over, but it has been a whirlwind year that has taught me so much, and I am so thankful for all the wonderful Brethren of Ben Franklin. There are not enough words of gratitude I can lavish on each of you who have supported me, especially the officers. We are still trying to build our Lodge into a thriving entity and we did raise three new Brothers this year, but unfortunately with our losses, we are about even with our total membership at this time last year.
We have Stated Communication on December 2nd at 7 pm, with dinner being served at 6 pm. The Installation of new officers will be Monday December 7th. And the Installation Ceremony will begin at 7 pm, with dinner beginning at 6 pm. As always, I will make myself available to provide rides to and from any meeting if anyone needs such. We are still having work and practice on each Monday at 6:30 pm, and we would love for each of you to make plans to attend at least one Monday a month to help with the education of our officers, as well as, with our newest members.
I will close, by once again thanking each of you for your support of my year as your Master.
Worshipful Master Daniel Lee Venters
