As we all know, the Stated Communications for the month of February was cancelled for the second time over concerns of a COVID resurge. I will be quite frank in saying that I am a bit fatigued that this virus has droned on for over a year as I am certain many of you all have as well, but I remain hopeful that this cancellation of a Stated Communication will be the last one on my watch. I said that last time and may have jinxed myself.
For this month’s Stated Communications on the 15th we will be holding elections. There will be a tiled and closed installation immediately following.
I had a short communication with Brother Marcel Luten; he stated that he is in receipt of orders that the Marine Corps has given him notice of and will be returning from his assignment in Okinawa and is slated to be stationed at the Pentagon. With that news I don’t know if I should congratulate him or convey my sympathies! I am looking forward to seeing him in Lodge quite soon.

Additionally, there are a few announcements concerning the well-being of some of the Brethren;
If there is a brother that you have not had any word from or contact with in a while, I urge you to reach out and check on them. We are all in this together although it may not seem like it at times.
Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
Administrative notes and parting shots:

Also, we currently have the “Travelling Gavel” will be making a fraternal visit within the District to “gift” it to some very lucky well deserving Lodge in the near future!
