Greetings from the East!
The leaves aren’t quite falling yet, but you can feel it in the air that Autumn is just around the corner. I am looking forward to some cooler weather, but not to it being dark at 4:30 pm. Enjoy the sun while you can!
September continued to be a very busy month for Denver Lodge No. 5. We passed eight Brothers to the degree of Fellowcraft. This is amazing progress for the Lodge and the Craft! I have challenged our newly passed Brothers to become proficient in October so that we can work on getting them Raised by the end of the year. I want to congratulate all of them and the dedicated D5 Brothers that helped to put on all of these degrees to the high standards that our Lodge is known for!
We have several upcoming events that you should put on your calendar. On October 7th, Brother Bryan Cummings J.W. will be holding the gavel in the East for this meeting. Along with opening and stepping up and down the degrees, we will be hearing some proficiencies. Please make sure to attend this meeting to support your Brothers. As always, you must RSVP here.
Our second Stated Communication of the month is October 21st. We will be performing Master Mason degrees The degree cast is being put together now, so if you would like to be a part of this, please let me know. Please RSVP here.
On November 4th, the Grand Lodge of Colorado will be making an official visit. This will be an open meeting, so please bring your significant other to the event. More details to come. Please RSVP here.
The deadline for putting in your petition for the Scottish Rite Fall Reunion is quickly approaching. The Denver Consistory is excited because this reunion will be the first in-person reunion since the Fall of 2019! The degree teams are working hard to polish their presentations. If you are a proficient Master Mason and are interested in joining the Consistory, please get your petitions submitted. You can now submit a petition online via the form here.
There is a very interesting event that is being put together by the Brothers of Lupton Lodge No. 119 titled, “A Journey through the Stars: The Secrets of Polynesian Navigation”. It will take place on October 17th, 2021, at the Fiske Planetarium in Boulder. If you are interested in attending, you can reserve your seats here.
The events of the world have affected all of us either at work, school, or at home. It is no different for our Lodge. I want to thank every single Brother who has taken time away from their lives to help get things back to “normal” at Lodge. You are all a major asset to your Lodge and your efforts are greatly appreciated!
I hope everyone is ready for Fall and I look forward to seeing you all this month!
