Flower City Lodge No. 689

Message From The East – December 2013

Greetings Brethren,

What an exciting month of November! We had our Official Visit and then V.W. Bro. Steve Ellstrom reception and presentation of regalia. In December, we have only one meeting and then we break for the Holidays. I sincerely wish all the Brethren and your families a safe, relaxing and enjoyable festive season.

On Thursday, November 14th, we welcomed R.W. Bro. George M. Warner, District Deputy Grand Master, Toronto West District on the occasion of his Official Visit of Flower City Lodge. We will conferred the 2nd Degree on Bro. Ryan Reid who was an excellent candidate. Congratulation Bro. Reid. I would also like to thank the Brethren who stepped in at the last minute – in particular Bro. Edgar Robalino, V.W. Bro. Donald Laycock (double duty as DOC and Chaplain) and V.W. Bro. Guenther Gahs.

At our November 28th Emergent meeting, we had the pleasure of presenting V.W. Bro. Steve Ellstrom with his regalia as Grand Steward. This was a wonderful and memorable evening.

At our upcoming Regular meeting on Thursday, December 12th, we will be conferring the 2nd Degree on Bro. Shantanu (Shan) Singh Kumar

I look forward to greeting each of you at our Regular Meeting on December the 12th.

Finally, to our sick and shut-in Brethren, our thoughts and prayers are with you, and please do not hesitate to contact me or any officer of the lodge if we can be of any assistance. If you require a drive to lodge, please let us know and we will make arrangements.

I wish all the Brethren and your families a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Sincerely and Fraternally,

W. Bro. James Leutri
