My year as Worshipful Master started off in typically Jenks fashion with a nice snow storm to go with the annual. Thank you to everyone who braved the storm to be in attendance. Thank you to RW.: DDGM Gary S. Kaufman and his W.: GMC Mark E. Eddleston for not only braving the storm but for putting on a most enjoyable and memorable Installation for Jenks Lodge. Thank you to the Knights from Holy Sepulcher for providing the color guard for the evening. In my opinion Old Glory never looked better at lodge. I also want to thank everyone who has sent me congratulations and well wishes. Your faith and support in me is very touching and greatly appreciated.
All good things must come to an end and so it is time to go from refreshment, back to labor again. We have quite a few plans for this year and so I hope you will join us not only for lodge events, but in visiting other lodges, and sharing in the brotherhood of freemasonry. As I write this I am pre- paring to go to Redwood lodge for our DDGM visitation. On January 21st I will be taking a ride up to 200 Main St in Nashua, New Hampshire, for An- cient York Lodge #89 annual which starts at 3pm. If you would like to join me, please let me know. Our hope later this year is to perform a degree at Ancient York Lodge, as they were kind enough to come to our lodge and perform a degree and we would like to continue to grow our relationship with them. On the 23rd ,we will have our meeting to honor the past masters and talk about the future of the lodge.
Yours in the Craft,
W.: Stephan Saraidarian
