Thank you for you for voting me into the East. I look forward to being of great service to the lodge this year. Buford is an amazing lodge and we will continue to build on our solid foundation.
This year I would like to focus on community and communication. We will improve our presence in the community. This is why many of us got into Masonry and we will create opportunities to be of service to our community. A big part of our community is involving our family. Family is so important for Masonry to continue. Our families need to see the people we go to lodge with and understand the connection we have with one another. This will help the world at large to be convinced of our good effects. Communication is key to a successful year of the brethren being involved. We will focus on ensuring that the lodge knows what is planned and have plenty of time to get it scheduled.
I hope to get plenty of business done as well as have a little fun. I want everyone to look forward to coming to lodge and seeing our brothers. We will complete our business and also leave with something new that we might not have known before.
The officers of Buford lodge are excited and I look forward to this year with such a strong team. The officers have many ideas that we are going to try. We will continue to improve ourselves and set Buford for more successful years to come.
