Master’s MESSAGE

November and December 2018


Brethren and Friends,

I hope you all are having a very enjoyable fall. With the Holidays fast approaching we will be in the New Year before we know it. I would like to extend at this time a very heartfelt and blessed Holiday season to everyone.

 This is going to be a fast yet very fun year for Kirkwood Lodge. I have met with the Masters of several local lodges to create a tight bond between the four lodges to assist each other throughout the year. We have teamed up with Webster Groves Lodge to have ritual practices prior to the meetings on the Sunday prior. Also we are looking forward to the visits to the local lodges here in the new year. Finally ending with a multi lodge picnic in the summer. Brethren please join me to meet the brothers from around the area at these events.

Finally, we have a good amount of degree work coming up and will need all hands on deck for the conferral of the degrees. I am hoping we can do a full degree in the year with just members of the lodge and possibly those in their respective offices (myself included).


Greg Heins – WM
