♦ LIGHT: Masonry is all about improving: ourselves, our community (Lodge), and, by extension, the world around us. To this end, Masonry provides us with Tools. One of this year’s goals is the proper use of these Tools.
♦ LOVE: Masonry provides us with a community: our Lodge. One of this year’s goals is to improve our Lodge. Moving to a more conducive environment was a good start. Let us continue to strive to build harmony and ritual excellence.
♦ LIFE: As part of the larger Masonic community sharing with our Brothers and the world at large, Braden builds Masonry with Fellowship: table lodges and meals, murder mysteries, puzzles, Socrates Café, an artists salon, “killer” ritual, and thoughtful discussions into the wee hours.
This Year... Let us look at the drawings on the Trestle Board, choose our Tools, Labor as a Team, and do the necessary improvements in Ourselves, our Lodge — and perhaps Masonry itself. — WB Jay Koelsch ♦ Worshipful Master ♦ 2023
