It was our pleasure to host the District Deputy Grand Master (DDGM) and District Deputy Grand Lecturer (DDGL) of the 34th Masonic District of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of North Carolina at our Stated Communication on Monday 16 May.
The honored guests were received into the lodge by Worshipful Master (WM) Lee Spach and presented with grand honors by the lodge brothers. Worshipful Brother (WB) Powell, DDGM, greeted the lodge with salutations from the Most Worshipful Grand Master of Masons of North Carolina and gave an oration concerning lodge membership and complimented the lodge on our continued successes.
WB Powell indicated that our new Outreach Committee and their commitment to serving the needs of the lodge brethren is a very noble endeavor. He stated that it was great to see several lodge members attending again that had been absent for a long time. Concluding, WB Powell, congratulated our lodge on fundraising activities, community involvement, and our Masonic education program.
Worshipful Brother Wilbur Clay, DDGL, spoke to the lodge about the high level of dedication to Masonic ritual that we maintain and continue to foster in newer members. He expressed his gratitude for our participation in the district school of instruction and our adherence to the lecture services. Overall he indicated that our continued success in attracting new members and retaining their attendance is a reflection of our lodge culture and one that is greatly supported by him.
After WM Lee Spach conducted usual lodge business, WB Powell proceeded to close the lodge in due form and we retired for the evening. It was a great meeting and one we look forward to annually.
