Greetings Brethren,

I hate to be clichéd and say something like: “Since my election, it has been a whirlwind”, but it honestly has. December has been such a busy month, that I was actually glad to get back to work after the holidays. Going back to work provided me with a brief chance to catch my breath, Of course, I‟m of the mindset that busy is good, and that being busy keeps us from getting ourselves into trouble. With that thought in mind, Mozart Lodge is going to have a busy year!

I am focused on working hard, and playing harder. Between degrees and social events, we already have a full schedule for the first half of the year. We have a young officer line, men with fresh, young ideas. As a result, there is a little something for everyone. If you can‟t find something you like, then contact me and tell me what you think we are missing.

We are also going to be bringing back a few things that we have strayed away from over the years. One will be that, at the conclusion of each meeting, we will be place a hat outside the door of the lodge room for donations, for either the Charity Fund, or our designated charity of the month. Brethren, I know these are tough times, but please do what you can. Of course, if you are unable to make a financial donation, we will always appreciate your time and support of our degree work and social activities. With many committees being formed and events upcoming, I challenge you to get involved. Even a few hours a month can go a long way, many hands make little work!

My brothers, I have the utmost confidence in our officers, our member‟s participation, and that overall, Mozart Lodge is moving forward in every way.
