Garoga-Sincerity Lodge Newsletter

January 2019

My Brothers,

I wish each of you and your families a very Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year. May it prove to be a year you look back on with fond memories and with a warm glow in your heart.

While we may all find ourselves a little fatigued after a busy holiday season, our trestle board is full and active as we move into the new year. We will be having a Brother Bring a Friend evening on January 29th and I would ask you to forward names and contact info for potential candidates you may be thinking of to RW Brother Ron Galens, RW Clayton Ruggles or myself. Invitations will be going out shortly. I would also ask that as many Brothers as possible attend this event and be available to interact with potential candidates.  We will be following this evening up with a group outing to a RIT vs Robert Morris University Division 1 hockey game in February. Details and a flyer for that event will follow shortly.

Masonic Thought for the Month

Brother, I, too, own a television set, but that does not keep me at home on lodge night. I have never yet had one of the characters on television come off the screen and shake my hand. They have never offered me the warm friendship that my lodge brothers do. They have never handed me a cup of coffee or a doughnut. No! Never! – Unknown

I look forward to seeing you in Lodge.
