From the East

Well, that time is finally arrived, and I am humbled and grateful to serve as your Worshipful Master for Farmers Lodge for the ensuing year! As many before me, I hope to have a great year, and earn your respect as your presiding officer. My main focus of the upcoming year is “Education”; Not only for our new Brothers who are experiencing the joys and mysteries of Freemasonry for the first time, but to also educate the Officers and Brethren of the Lodge, so that they may also have a better knowledge of our great fraternity of Freemasonry, and what it stands for.
We have a Very fine Officer Line this year, and not to mention, probably one of, if not the “youngest” Officer Lines in the District. This is the first time in a very long time, that we have no Past Masters in the Progressive Line. We have survived on the support of our Past Masters for many years, and it’s time we show them our appreciation, by letting them finally relax for a change, and be there to just “whisper good council in our ears”, as I’m sure we will need it!
I look forward to the challenges that lay before us, and hopefully, just as we are growing towards the future, let us not forget our past; as this is what our Great Fraternity is supported on.
I hope to see many new and hopefully familiar faces this year, from the youngest Entered Apprentice who stands in the Northeast Corner, or a Brother from another Lodge, or just as equally important, a fellow Brother of Farmers Lodge whom I have not had the pleasure of meeting for the first time. So if possible, try to make a meeting in the near future and see how your Brothers are doing!
I would also like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that we now have NEW Stated Meeting time of 7:30pm, and continue to meet on the 1st Tuesday of the month. This was voted on and approved at our last meeting, and hopefully this new time, will make it easier for our Brethren to attend meetings. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or if you would need any assistance to make it to a meeting sometime. Arrangements will be made to assist you. Hope to see you at Lodge sometime soon!
Sincerely & Fraternally,
Adam Wilson - Worshipful Master Elect
