May Master’s Message


Many thanks to all those who helped out to make the Grand Master’s visit and the Public Schools Recognition Night during April which were both very successful events. The dinner and evening with the Grand Lodge officers and guests was a great time. I want to personally thank Janet and Gary Malara for all their hard work on the fantastic dinner that we all enjoyed.

PSRN always amazes me. It is so nice to see the Temple filled with the outstanding students, their families, and the educators, all of whom greatly appreciate the fact that the Fort Collins Masonic Lodges support this great celebration of education and personal achievement. Seeing all those smiling faces makes it all worthwhile.

For both of these events, we owe a great deal of thanks to our Masonic youth groups for helping out in many ways to make everything come together. Brothers, let us do all we can to support them.

Looking ahead, we have some business to finish up in May before we go dark for the summer. We have started planning for a Fellowcraft degree to be held on Wednesday May 24th with dinner at 6PM and the degree work starting at 7:30. Please join us for this special communication. There are still some important activities taking place during the summer however. Most notably, the Grand Lodge constitutional convention and budget session in August will be very important in determining how our Grand Lodge and local lodges will operate.

I still would like to get some of us together to visit our brothers in other lodges in the area. It could be a lot of fun. One of my favorite memories of being a young warden was visiting the Prince Hall Lodge in Cheyenne, Wyoming. That was amazing! Whatever your plans for the Spring and Summer seasons, I hope to see you all out there on the trails toward further light. Safe travels!
