The visitors whom we all say are the cornerstones of Masonry certainly made a big corner at the installation.

Thank you.

That leaves one big thank you for the brothers of Commercial Lodge. I am with your support looking forward to a full and busy year.

I also must thank my family (my wife and son) and Bro Bob Spence for the gavel. I am sure I will put it to good use. I am glad that when I was given the gavel to run the meeting, my first official act was to thank Bro William Wandio for his 20 years of loyal service to the lodge as Secretary Treasurer. R.W. Bro Tom Campbell… You have some big shoes to fill and I know you will meet this challenge with your excellent leadership skills.

As I have already said to many of you, the theme for this will be: “Ask not what your lodge can do for you…” I believe you get out of lodge what you put in so put in a lot and you will get back tenfold. When you take year

part in even the smallest act in lodge, you become a part
of it and when you become part you are then a greater
part of the whole.

After my surgery for prostate cancer, I started to visit again when I was well enough. Mere words cannot describe the blanket of warmth that was wrapped around me by the brothers in all the lodges I visited. That blan-
ket was made from your concern and showed me that this is a place where I belong.

I trust that you all had a Happy Christmas and that the Glad Tidings continue for the coming year.

Fratemally yours,

Franklyn Johnson, W.M.

When I arrived, I had started my lessons of the Craft, but was still rough in form, and had very little confidence my role as a Mason, and especially as a member or Commercial Lodge. Brethren, the soil is good, the seeds have been planted well, and whether they be seeds from afar or near, they grow with the care of their Brethren. Thank you Worshipful Master, for allowing me the opportunity to address the Brethren through the Master’s Message.
