A message from the Worshipful Master

     My dear Brethren and Friends!  Spring has finally arrived.  I hope that all of you and your loved ones had a very Blessed and Happy Holy Week, and hope that we continue to foster these busy times with fellowship and love.

     April was another great month for our Manasseh Family!  All our groups and bodies were busy and engaged throughout the month. We had an amazing April Stated Communication with a stellar program by MWB Akram Elias!  I hope that you all enjoyed the program, and we look forward to seeing Brother Akram in our Lodge very soon!

     May is shaping to be most engaged as well.  On May 13th, the Lodge is planning a Fraternal Visit to Fredericksburg No. 4, one of the oldest Lodges in the Commonwealth, and George Washington’s mother Lodge. 

     On May 19th, we will be driving down to meet with some Brothers at Harmon Lodge No. 420, in North Carolina, and sharing fellowship, food, and camaraderie!  If anyone is interested in attending, please let the Worshipful Master know! 

     Sometime in May, we will be wrapping up the first run of our Masonic Book Club, and I look forward to the scintillating and in-depth conversation with all who attend. 

    Finally, we will be hosting our Grand Master at our annual Strawberry Night on May 21st!  Stay tuned for details about dinner and that evening’s festivities!

May the Great Architect of the Universe keep you, surround you with Blessings, and bring you warmer days and brighter skies.

Yours in Brotherhood,

Joe Martinez
