First off, congratulations are in order for Brother Jordan Rice and Brother Daniel McCoy, who received their Fellowcraft Degrees! And a job well done to the D5 degree team! You have once again exemplified our amazing ritual work.

At the time of writing, the 2017 Grand Lodge session has not begun, but your Principle Officers will be in attendance and we will report back to you with all the details and any news.

We had a lot fun in January at events like the cigar night, family bowling and the DU hockey game. Thank you to all who came out! The Lodge also sponsored two tables at the annual Burn’s Dinner at the Denver Consistory. A good time was had by all as usual and we look forward to being there again next year. Bring on the haggis!

January was a busy month and I expect February to be no different! At our first Stated Communication in February, we are lucky to have W.B. Nick Freeburg give a talk on a topic of importance to all Masons, the Art of Memory. For our second Stated Communication, we will once again be on the FC Degree to pass two Brothers.

Other fun activities going on in February will be cigar night (Feb. 9), game night (Feb. 11) and billiards (Feb. 23). We’ve had great turn-outs in January, so please RSVP here so we can be sure to have enough room for everyone. We are constantly adding activities so check the website for updates.

We will also be visiting our Brothers at South Denver Lodge No.93 for their Stated Communication on February 21st. They will be raising a Brother to the Master Mason Degree.

Thank you all for a great January. Now let’s make February even better!
