December 2022 Trestleboard
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
On Thursday, December 1, 2022, we held our LAST regular business meeting for the 2022 calendar year, at our normal time of course, with a great dinner and a great group of Brothers!
As we do during all of our meetings, we discussed health and happiness, sickness and distressed, correspondence received, and read the name(s) of men interested in masonry and joining our Fraternity. We also voted on Brothers who are ready for their next degree, reinstatement, demit, and read the Meeting Minutes from meeting(s) held during the month of November 2022. There was no Old or New business that needed to be discussed so we installed the Officers present for the ensuing year, the Secretary’s report was given, the Treasurer's report was read, and Work for the Month was set.
Your 2023 Officers:
Past Master, Worshipful Brother Robert “Bob” Stump installed each Officer with the assistance of Past District Deputy, Right Worshipful Brother Ray Boland who served as the Marshal. Your Lodge Officers for the 2023 Calendar Year are:
Jud Close, PM
Ron Lockaby, RW
Bill Bouknight, RW
Jim Weih, PM
As the year is quickly coming to an end and so too is the end of my term, I wanted to take this opportunity to convey a sincere and heartfelt Thank You! Thank you to the Officers, Past Masters, the Craft, and those who have helped me and mentored me along the way this past year. I (my) hope is that I have held the position of Worshipful Master to the Standard that Boyleston is known for, and expected. I am not the best at always knowing how to best articulate my thoughts and feelings, but I hope that my actions this year have spoken louder than my words. I don’t think I could ever truly express the immense gratitude I feel towards this Lodge and our Fraternity. Thank you for all your support and encouragement. It has been such an Honor to serve you!
