We have had a great year at Acacia Lodge! Here's a recap:
First, both BBQ's were very successful, even though the Fall BBQ was short on help. Please try to give us a hand next year - even if only for a few hours. We need YOU!
Next, we've had a lot of degree work again this year, with more to come. November 11, FC Bro. Michael Harp will be raised to the sublime degree of MM. Be sure to congratulate him when you see him.
We also had a public memorial service to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks on our nation. We had a nice service followed by fellowship and food.
We will have an open installation of the 2012 officers on December 16th. We will have a social time and finger foods at 6 PM. At 7 PM we'll open the lodge, and then we'll invite the public in for the installation. MW Brother Gerald L. Carver, PGM will be conducting the installation service. Bring your wife and come out and join us for this installation. It's been a long time since Acacia Lodge has held a public installation.
May God bless each of you. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year!
A thought for the day: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:1-5 (KJV)
