Happy New Year!

Does anyone know where 2018 went?

As we start 2019, we all need to ask ourselves; Have we done all that we can to ensure the growth of our Lodges, Chapters, Association, and our Fraternity?

If you have sponsored a New Member you can say yes, if not, you should be saying NO. But there is more than sponsoring members that is required to ensure our growth. Have you volunteered at the Lodge or Chapter? Have you shown support at the Lodge or Chapter during an activity or event? With the start of a New Year, this would be a great time to start supporting and volunteering at your Lodge or Chapter.

I sit here on Christmas Eve watching Adam and Cora anxiously waiting for Santa to come wondering if I have done enough to support our Lodges and Chapters. Sometimes I think that I should be doing more, but when can I find the time? This coming year I hope to be able to do more. Just like all of you, I have to balance time between Family, Work, and the Fraternity, but I will strive to do more. Hopefully all of you will do the same.

I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas along with a Happy New Year. I also pray that each and every one of you have a Blessed year, and that we all remain healthy and that we all strive for the growth and well-being of our beloved Fraternity.


From my Family to yours, “May Peace Be With You”.
