The kids will be back in school soon, so I am assuming that nearly everyone is back from a summer vacation. I hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful summer. It is now time for us to get to work in the quarries and support our new Worshipful Master and his slate of officers. We have several degrees to get ready for. We need to start the preparation for the EA and FC degrees. If you desire to work in either of those degrees, please let the Worshipful Master know. It is also imperative that you come to our work nights to get proficient in the work of the degrees. Let’s put on a great degree for each candidate.
Our thoughts and prayers are with RW PGM Elmer Murphy. He suffered an aneurism in July. Word from Grand Secretary RW Tommy Guest is that he is in ICU and resting comfortably. At the moment RW Murphy cannot receive visitors, but your prayers and thoughts will be uplifting to him and his family at this time.
This is a plea to all members that have not been to lodge in sometime. You should be receiving a call from one of the officers of the lodge inviting you back to lodge. At this time Waco 92 has approximately around 300 active, endowed and life members. We are averaging fewer than ten percent of those members being active in lodge attendance. Worshipful Master Marshall has some great plans for the lodge during his time in the East. I would like to urge each and every member to come to the stated meetings and work nights to learn what is happening in YOUR LODGE.
On Saturday, September 5, 2015 Waco 92 will be hosting a Grand Master workshop on Masonic Education. Please put that date on your calendar. The workshop will begin at 9am. Our own RW Brett Carroll, DDGM of District 61-C, will be in charge at the workshop. You can learn more about the workshop at our August stated meeting, as RW Carroll will be making his second official visit.
Hope to see everyone in lodge this month.
Tom Waden, Secretary
