Thank you all for making my first month as Worshipful Master of Plano Lodge a great one. I have implemented some new programs at the stated meetings and the response has been positive. I was very pleased with the participation of the brothers during these programs and the comments I received afterward confirmed that these were good additions to the meeting and were indeed something the brothers would enjoy. I have a few more ideas to try out as we continue through this year, and look forward to receiving feedback on them both positive and constructive.
I expect we will continue to be busy at Plano Lodge through the month of August. I do know of some events we have coming up in September. At the stated meeting in September we will receive our second official visit from our District Deputy Grand Master, R:. W:. Glen Day, as well as have the report from the Audit Committee. Both should prove interesting and informative. We will also have our annual Certificate Examination at Plano Lodge on the Monday following Labor Day. For those who choose to sit for this examination, this can be quite a hectic, mind numbing experience. I have also had a request to have a Saturday degree. I am not sure when that will be able to be fit into the schedule, but be expecting it. We have had poor attendance at the last 2 Saturday degrees we have put on, so I would like to have a larger crowd for this when it comes to be.
Finally, the weather (i.e. rain) seems to have lightened up to the point I can again use my pool. I know you have all been eagerly waiting for this moment, so please note the pool party has been rescheduled. The new date is Saturday, August 25th. The same requests apply. Please RSVP to me either in person, by email, or by telephone. This is a BYOT event. Bring Your Own Towel.
