From The Worshipful Master

October   2018

The Master’s Message    Portsmouth Freemasons | St. John’s

Greetings Brethren!

It’s hard to believe that fall is already here. The changing colors of the leaves and crisp air is all around us.

In August, we performed a Master Mason degree for a Brother from Star in the East Lodge. This was a great joint effort between two first district Lodges. For anyone who missed it, it was a phenomenal degree!!

Keeping that momentum going, we got the opportunity to perform an Entered Apprentice Degree for Tucker Lodge. Brother Jesse Lannoo from Major General John Sullivan Lodge was present for both nights and gave well executed histories for the Master Mason and Entered Apprentice degrees.

In October, Step Up Night will be the program for the stated meeting. In lieu of this, our Senior Warden, Brother Gregg Annis, will be acting Worshipful Master for the evening. As for your remaining officers, they have been working diligently on their upcoming role for the ensuing year. Please make every effort to come and support the future line officers of your Lodge. I know they will all do an outstanding job! For upcoming visitations, I would like to see St. Johns well represented. Yes, I am looking at ALL of you. This month, we will be visiting Star in the East Lodge in Exeter on October 11th. Tucker Lodge in Raymond on the 16th and St. James Lodge in Hampton on the 22nd. Dinner is at 6:30pm and Visitation at 7:15 PM.

Open house this year will be on October 20th. If anyone is interested in offering help for the event, please reach out to me. I look forward to shaking your hand at our next stated meeting!


Sincerely and Fraternally,

            Wor. Rob Johnson
