State of the Lodge
Free Masonry is a live and well in Middletown, PA! The 2015 Lodge Program is outlined for the New Year, the members are assigned to their committees, and we are all set for another very productive year.
The Long Range Planning Committee is already actively engaging local schools, local organizations, and charities in an effort to continue to strengthen our bond with our communities. The New Membership Committee is developing new initiates to be the future leaders, officers, and committee members of our Lodge. The Officers are strengthening their execution of Masonic ritual through regular practice.
The Lodge is prepared to receive the R.W.G.M. — Robert J Bateman — at the March Stated Meeting, when he will be presenting 50, 60, and 70 – year Service Emblems. The 144th Anniversary Banquet is shaping up to be an excellent event. Our keynote speaker will be Larry Christenson, former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher and member of the 1980 World Series team. We will, once again, be the place to eat on Election Days in May & November with our world renowned Election Day Spaghetti Dinners!
We will continue to be active in Middletown community events — participating in the Craft Fair (June); National Night Out (August); opening our doors to participants in the Memorial Day Parade (May); and offering Trick or Treat (October).
To all my of my fellow Brethren: I appreciate your participation and support in strengthening our fraternal organization. I look forward to another successful year!
