I would like to first wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving that we all have coming up!   Thanks to all of the Brothers that showed up to Ladies Night and again I'd like to give a huge thanks to my wife Adrianna McCullar for helping get everything arranged.   We had a few 25 yr, 40 yr and 50 yr awards to give out and a little over half were able to make it out to receive it. 


What an honor!!

Brothers in our November Business Meeting, we held our Elections for the ensuing year of 2018.  Bro Jay Greene, PM was nominated and a unanimous ballet was cast and accepted by Wor. Bro. Jay Greene to be the Worshipful Master for the ensuing year 2018.  Also nominated and unanimous ballot was cast and accepted was Bro Jeff Hutchinson for Senior Warden, and Bro Allen Broadus for Junior Warden in the  ensuing year 2018.  WB Jason Simpson and WB Cecil Swanks were also nominated and a unanimous ballot was cast for them to continue in their chairs as Secretary and Treasurer.  Thanks to all who have stepped up to make sure that Cayce 384 will be in good hands in 2018!!  We stills have 3 appointments open for 2018 (JR Steward, SR Steward, and JR Deacon).  We will be having Installations at the beginning of our December Business Meeting, so I charge some of the younger Brothers to step up and serve your Lodge.


We have our Spaghetti Fundraiser coming up this week (11/10 from 11am - 7pm).  We will be serving lunch as well as dinner.  We will need all of the help that we can get from our Brethren so come and be prepared to help out! 

I have also charged the brothers to come up with ideas to serve our community during the Annual Christmas Parade being held on December 9th.  We don't have a firm date on our fruit baskets yet, but they usually fall on this same date.  I think we should come together and make this a Family Event to show others outside of the Masonic Community other ways we are active.   Please plan on attending the December Business Meeting to welcome our newly Installed Officers and stay for the business meeting to follow to discuss ideas about the parade.  Love y'all!



Brent McCullar, WM





The year is coming to a close. You have elected me to serve again as your Worshipful Master and for that I thank you. Unfortunately though we are still in need of officers for the 2018 year so please reach out to me if you’re willing to serve. We can not do great work without great officers from Steward all the way up. If possible I need to fill these chairs by the December Business meeting. I hope to see everyone present for the open installation in December. 

Fraternally yours, 

Jay Greene, PM SW       




I have enjoyed serving as your Junior Warden this past year. I have done the best that I could on providing meals for our meetings. I do believe our JW elect will continue the tradition of good meals.

I also want to thank the brothers for electing me into the West. I am looking forward to the upcoming year. One thing that we want to work on is attendance for our meetings. Please contact a brother and bring him to a meeting. This will be a slow process but we can do it.
