Happy New Year! I hope that each of you had a very blessed holiday and New Year. I would like to congratulate our 2019 officers! I’m very honored and excited on working with you this year! I have many fun events planned and look forward to implementing them. I would like to thank Worshipful Brother Kory Wilson for his great work in the 2018 year!
The 2019 year will be the 160th anniversary of Denver Lodge #5. I have designed a coin which is unique for the 160th anniversary which every brother will be given. My theme this year is Faith, Hope, and Charity: Faith in God, Hope of immortality, and Charity to all mankind. I’m looking forward to helping support charities this year, specifically the Saint Francis Center.
