From The Worshipful Master

November   2018

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

Greetings Brethren!

October was a slow month for the lodge but busy for the 1st Masonic District. We had official DDGM visitations at Star in the East, Tucker, and St. James Lodge. We have not had a strong showing at any visitation except our own back in August. I would like to see us FINISH STRONG with the remaining visitations! I personally have enjoyed traveling to the Lodges in the district and watching their degree work during the visitations and encourage you to attend the two visitations this month. Gideon Lodge is November 6th and Rockingham on the 13th. You DO NOT have to be an officer of the lodge to attend visitations. Join us for a few great nights of fellowship with brethren from around the district.

During our stated meeting this month, the annual meeting of Saint John’s Masonic Association will be held. The annual report will be read and election of officers will be held. I’m sure there will be a few more items on the agenda as well. Consider this your due notice and please make every effort to attend.Your voice matters!!

As a reminder, you can now pay your dues by credit and debit card!! You can pay them at the lodge prior to the meeting or you can email the secretary to request an electronic invoice. It’s easy and fast!

Tis the season, and as usual we will be decorating the building for Christmas. Contact myself or our JD if you’d like to help.

This is the time of year where we are mindful of what we are thankful for. While, I am thankful beyond this month, I found it appropriate to tell you all how thankful I have been this past year to serve as your Worshipful Master. I wanted to thank all of you for your dedication to make this year such a positive experience. Remember to give thanks as we are so fortunate to be a part of the oldest and greatest fraternity. With that, I leave you all with Happy Thanksgiving, Brethren.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

            Wor. Rob Johnson
