A message from the Worshipful Master

         Brethren and Friends, I want to thank you ALL for helping Manasseh Lodge start off 2022 in such an amazing way! 

     Our January Stated Communication started off with an amazing meal by our very own Brother Reza Nejad, who threw down the gauntlet in terms of fine dining in our Lodge!

     We want to welcome our two new additions to our Lodge, Worshipful Brother Paul Lockhart and Brother Bobby Schneider!  Thank you for your years of support to our Lodge, and we send a hearty welcome from your new home! 

     Thank you to everyone who came out to our first Masonic Book Club!  It was a huge success, even when it shifted to Zoom!  We may pivot to Zoom meetings for the other Book Club meetings, so please keep an eye out via email and social media!    

We also balloted on a new candidate last month, and will confer the Entered Apprentice Degree on Monday, Feburary 7th at 7:00pm.  Please come out and support our new candidate as he begins his Masonic journey.

     February is already shaping up to be a busy month!  This month will be our District Deputy Grand Master’s Official Visit month, so please come out and support RWB Brant!  Please check out the Lodge Calendar and website for all events happening this month!  We will be again hosting a Lodge Family Super Bowl Party, so please come out for fellowship, football, and great food!  The Lodge is also discussing a resolution put forth by our Trustees, so please come out if you have any questions or discussion points that you want to raise.

May the Great Architect of the Universe keep you, surround you with Blessings, and bring you happiness and health during this trying time.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Joe Martinez
Worshipful Master
