Greetings Brethren, and congratulations on being recognized
as the Lodge of the Year by the MWPHGL of Texas. It is always good and pleasant
to dwell together with brothers in unity. I am honored and humbled every time my
Lodge asks me to serve it in any capacity. For the Masonic Year 2010 -2011, I have
been asked to serve as your Tiler. I look forward to welcoming all brothers to our
Lodge chamber and to performing the duties the WM lays out for me on his Trestle
board. I also look forward to learning and growing Masonically with my friends and
brothers. It will be a pleasure to see you all, and to serve you. I will keep the best
interests of all members of this Prince Hall family in my thoughts, prayers and
meditations. May the GAOTU bless and keep you all. Have a safe and happy
summer. I’ll see you, at the outer door.
