First off, let me say that I am very humbled and honored to be serving as Worshipful Master this year. My grandfather,
Ray Denney, who was a member of Highlands Lodge would be very proud. It’s because of his influence in my life that I
am a Mason. I believe it is important to acknowledge the people who have come before us, and all the work they have
done to get us to where we are today. So thank you to all the Past Masters for all you have done to serve our lodge,
and thank you, brothers, for electing me!
I plan on having a lot of fun this year. The more fun we have, the more likely we will have good men knocking at our door willing to join the fraternity. Newly made Masons don't want to hear complaining about being at lodge-it should be fun after all. Why waste your time doing something that is not enjoyable? We will also need to think of ways to be more involved in the community which we are a part of- to focus more on charity, and brotherly love. My ears and heart are open to any ideas anyone might have for anything you want to do. I will find a way to make it happen. Finally, I give it your duty as a member of our lodge to read Section 3 of our By Laws and give some thought to our Secondary duties as members of this lodge. Happy New Year!
