EXALTED RULER’S MESSAGE
                             My first article as your new
                        Exalted Ruler. I would like to
                        thank the members of this Lodge
                        for their vote of confidence. I
                        hope this next year goes smooth.
                        I don’t have any great plans for
                        any changes. I will do my best
                        to try and keep the doors open.

you attend. If you want to criticize or make suggestions
you should do so at the meetings, not at the bar. Nothing
gets resolved at the bar. If you have problems with
and/or suggestions for Club operations, I urge you to
bring them to the House Committee. Your concerns
should be properly documented and suggested solutions
should be submitted with your signature if you expect
any action from the House Committee. Lodge concerns
should be brought to the Trustees in the same manner.
Remember, it is very important to properly communicate
your concerns so they are understood.
    Please understand, with your help we can make this
a better Lodge year.
Thank You
Joe Vasques, Exalted Ruler
