By the time this reaches you, we will have installed the new officers for 2016. I look forward to watching those brothers performing their duties and growing as men. I have great confidence in them and feel that I am leaving our lodge in the very best hands we have.
I hope that you will have a safe and happy Christmas and a prosperous new year. Let us not forget, in this busy season, the real reason for our celebrations. May you find peace and releief in your devotions to our Holy Creator. Enjoy time spent with friends and family and live each day as though it is your last. Say "I love you" to all of those you hold dear and don't let your last words be angry ones.
