As we move into the fall season and our schedules get full, I hope you take the time to focus on the things that really matter. Faith, Family, Friendship, and Fellowship can be lost in our hectic schedules if we do not make the time.Â It is in the spirit of not losing out on opportunities that I have 2 requests that I make of you.Â I am asking these from the bottom of my heart, because your brotherhood needs you.
First, I am asking all Past Masters, of any lodge, but especially Plano Lodge to make plans to attend Grand Lodge in December.Â One of our own, Brother Charles McKay is running for the Grand South and could use your support.Â If you cannot make the whole session, I ask that you come down for Saturday and the voting that occurs that morning.Â Please contact me if you need help getting there as we will try to arrange a caravan to bring as many past masters as we can on Saturday morning.Â I will be there the whole time, but some of the other officers and I will be working on setting up the caravan.
Secondly, I have been very proud of the members who attend lodge and have contributed items to support the Texas Masonic Retirement Center.Â Last month, during our stated meeting, we passed the hat in support of buying items to help fill the country store at the TMRC.Â If you cannot attend lodge, or even just donâ€™t regularly attend, and would like to contribute to our support of the TMRC, please send a donation to the lodge and we will purchase items on your behalf and take them to the TMRC.Â Please help in the supporting of our widows.
As always, we would like to see you at lodge.Â We are there every Thursday having fellowship and doing the work of the craft.
Worshipful Master, Plano Lodge #768
