Brethren! Today, December 3, kicked off the annual Grand Lodge Communication downtown on Columbus Avenue. Waco 92 is again manning the coffee shop downstairs and all 92 members are encouraged to join us to help and hang out over the next couple of days. Things started off very well this year and we had a good turn out of volunteers to help serve the brethren. My especial thanks goes to Brother Brickhouse who has taken on the duty of running the coffee shop this year. His leadership has assured a smooth operation. We also have an Entered Apprentice who returned home from his military obligations in Egypt and it was a real joy to have him stop by and visit with us this morning. Welcome home, Brother!
