Tidings from the West:
I'd like to express my gratitude for serving the lodge this year in the capacity of Senior Warden. I'm excited in my anticipation for serving in a coming year which, I believe, is going to be one of the best years in our lodge's history. Starting with the Centennial Celebration, we are drawing up plans to visit our shut-in brothers as well as widows. These people from our lodge will not be forgotten.
Also, I am working on a number of educational features for the business meetings which will be interesting as I dig up bits of Masonic history as well as explanations on why we do what we do in our ceremonies. Our library is a treasure trove of material and we are fortunate to have such a resource.
We are working hard to perfect our degree work and set up teams for the coming year. Ideas are forthcoming to make the degree work more interesting and meaningful for not only the candidates, but the seasoned brothers as well. I am looking forward to a fantastic year in the history of Unity Lodge #18.
Senior Warden Benjamin Johnson
