Greetings from the East,

You’ll be noticing a new face in the officer line. Brother Michael Rotert will be our new Senior Steward. In the short time he has been a Mason, he has shown the dedication and hard work needed to be a leader at Denver Lodge No.5 . Welcome to the officer line Brother!
Our Joint Communication at Park Hill Lodge No. 148 was a hit! It was great meeting with the Brethren of Park Hill. We also had the opportunity to visit Rocky Mountain Lodge #1 P.H.A. and were warmly welcomed as always. Thanks to all who came out for the Brotherly love!

This is another installment in a series where we will introduce some of our members. These are the up-and-coming leaders of our Fraternity. These are men from all walks of life. Fathers, sons, husbands… and we all call each other Brothers. These are just some of the stories behind Denver Lodge No.5.
Michael Rotert lives in Westminster, Colorado and is a proud husband, father of four boys and Mason. He owns and runs an importing business that is also located in Westminster. When he isn’t working, he enjoys spending time with his family, shooting and designing and building furniture.
He has been a Brother at D5 since April 2016. He enjoys many aspects of Freemasonry, particularly the fellowship with the diverse group of Brothers in our lodge. Masonic and philosophical discussion, degree work and promoting the Craft are just some of the things he enjoys about being a Mason.
Since he has joined Denver Lodge #5, he has proven to be a big asset to the Fraternity helping out with degree work and on the Fraternal Activities Committee. We’re glad to call him “Brother.”
Say hi to him at our next meeting.

Meet Sean. He is one of our newest Fellowcrafts and a great guy all around. We’ll let him introduce himself in his own words.
I have lived in Colorado since 1998. I am a father of 3. Being a father has proved to be more challenging, rewarding, and enriching than I have ever thought. I love to cook, hike, snowboard, and listen to music. Music is dear me, as is my vinyl collection. From Miles Davis to Jane’s Addiction and everything in-between… Nothing beats it.
Freemasonry and the Brothers of Denver No. 5 have been a wonderful addition to my existence. I look forward to sharing space and breaking bread with these gentlemen on the first and third Thursdays for Lodge and then to congregate outside of Lodge for some great and memorable times! Brothers in every sense of the word. It is a diverse group of guys and a group that you will find it hard not to strike a meaningful conversation with.
Sean has a great future in the Fraternity. Say hi to him at our next meeting.
