Trestleboard 2017-2018

I am excited to be master for the 2017-2018 year and have a few things that I would like to get accomplished.

I would like to focus on membership and ensure that all new brothers want to participate more in lodge. That way we can give a break to the brothers that are always filling in.

The building repairs list is long, as some things are in process I would like to complete them faster than we have been. I understand that everyone is very busy so any help will be greatly appreciated. With that said our house committee has been doing what they can and I am very pleased. There is still a lot to be done.

I believe that we need more fellowship, so this year every 3rd Saturday we will be hosting pool tournaments. (Bother Bring a Friend) It’s a nice way to have brothers meet new candidates or prospects. The money raised, I would like to go to various causes. I will assign a committee for this task in our first meeting.

Every second meeting of the month I would like to keep short if at all possible. So we can have fellowship and do different activities at our lodge.
My trestleboard is out lined below of our meetings and events for the new year. I’m looking forward to a fun filled and accomplished year and hope to see all of you there.

W:. Frederick C. Ranc II, Master
