Greetings Brothers and Friends!
I want to thank all of you who attended the first annual Masonica event this past weekend! We had excellent workshops and presentations given by many different Brothers. I know I learned a few things this weekend and hope you did as well! One of the highlights of the evening was receiving an original painting of W.B. Henry P.H. Bromwell. W.B. Bromwell was a prominent Mason and played a big role in the early days of Denver as well as Denver Lodge 5. I have in turn donated this painting to the Welton Temple Association so that this historical piece can be properly displayed in the Temple. The after-dinner entertainment was amazing as W.B. Michael Rossi and Bro. Dan Lamorie presented the play “Defense of the Ruffians”. I want to thank everyone who helped put on this event and joined us on Saturday!
It is now time to get back to work! September is almost here and that means that it’s time to put down the sunscreen and dust off your suit and tie. Lodge meetings are back! We are going to start our September meetings with a step-up night for Bro. James Bechtel S.W. He will be opening, stepping up and down, and closing the Lodge. We will have a handful of proficiencies throughout the night. Please come join us and support Bro. James while he runs the show this Thursday. Please RSVP for dinner with Bryan Cummings J.W.
After this meeting, we will have seven proficient EA’s who are excited to be passed to the Fellowcraft degree! We are going to need to break the degrees up over two nights. The first night of degrees will be during our September 16th meeting. We will hold a special on September 18th to complete the rest. Again, we ask that you RSVP with the Junior Warden for both events. We hope you can join us and help us in bringing these Brothers more light.
I look forward to seeing you all in Lodge!
