Greetings from the East,

Congratulations brethren!  Your hard work and dedication to the fraternity this past year resulted in Denver Lodge #5 being selected as Lodge of the Year for 2019!  This is the first time we’ve been presented with this esteemed award.  I know we always do great work and will continue to do so in the future!

Last year Denver Lodge #5 voted to sponsor a DeMolay chapter in conjunction with Union Lodge #7.  Denver Chapter’s advisory council has been meeting with a group of young boys that are interested in DeMolay and will become the inaugural members of the chapter.  If you have sons, nephews, grandsons, etc. that are between the ages of 12-21, I encourage you to talk with them about DeMolay and get them to be part of Denver Chapter.  Additionally, we need more members of Denver Lodge #5 to become registered advisors for the chapter.  I know we are all busy, but the DeMolay boys need more advisors that are willing to come to their meetings or activities when available.  Also, you may find that you enjoy being around the boys and mentoring them in the masonic morals that we live our lives by.

We have a great month of Masonry planned for February.  At our first stated communication on February 6 our own WB Van-Troi Perozo will be guiding us through a discussion on the Kabbalah based on his extensive research on the subject.  Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm followed by lodge opening at 7:30 pm.  Please RSVP to Brother Sean Murphy, JW.

During our second stated communication on February 20 we will be conferring the Master Mason degree for two of our brethren.  I encourage all our members, especially our Past Masters, to attend this meeting and help with the degree work.  Please let me know if you’d like to do a specific part.  Given the length of the degree, we will open the lodge at 5:30 pm, recess for dinner at 6:30 pm, and then begin degree work at 7:30 pm.  Please RSVP to Brother Sean Murphy, JW.

On February 21st you and your families are invited to watch the DU Pioneers take on Miami (OH) at the DU Magness Arena.  Brother Jon Aderhold has graciously set this up for us again this year.  For tickets please visit click here and use promo code ONEDU.
