Message From the East

February - 2014


My Brothers,

Upon receiving the highest honor that I have ever received in my life by being elected Master of Buechel Lodge, my desire is to see the lodge flourish. One of our goals this year is to become more active in the Buechel area. This spring I hope to have a volunteer day at the Veterans Memorial to plant flowers and place mulch around it.  This summer we will be hosting a picnic and volley ball game at the Buechel Fire Department.  I will be reaching out to the Buechel Police Department this summer as well and hope to plan some activity together.

Another goal is receiving The Grand Masters Excellency Award by working on all of its requirements. Also, we decided that we would return to more traditional dress for the officers. You can expect to see your officers in business dress plus white gloves while in lodge assembled and business dress (without gloves) when we travel. The Traveling Gavel is a high priority and we will be traveling to the lodge that took it at their next meeting to retrieve it.

We will be reaching out to brothers who have not been attending lodge. I love Masonry, Buechel Lodge and the Brothers. And want to do everything I can to encourage everyone to love it as much as I do.

Fraternally Thine,
James “Jim” Carter
Master, 2014
