|Making a difference in our community since 1822|
~ November 2016 ~
From the East
I heard we had a great and short meeting with not a lot of business in October. Thank you to Tim Marotte, Junior Warden for filling in for the Senior Warden and Myself as well as to the other officers and members who assisted! Your efforts are always greatly appreciated.
We have several important events coming up including our Thanksgiving Dinner in November, a Veterans Program in December and also our Visitation from our district officers on December 14th. I hope you can make each of these.
In December at our stated we will be voting for our new slate of officers to lead Rising Sun into the next phase. If you are a current officer, please ensure you are doing your best to ensure you are demonstrating you know your current role and you are prepared for your next role. If you are interested in becoming an officer or heading a committee please our Senior Warden, Junior Warden or myself.
Guy R. Martineau, W.M.
