Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
I love this time of year when the temperatures drop and it seems like every weekend is another get together. This past quarter was amazing. We had a great reunion on 15 September and welcomed five new members to the Scottish Rite. We had a wonderful Feast of Tishri on 21 September thanks to Brother Kevin Burns and Brother Doug Burfitt and the whole degree team. It was really nice to see so many family members show up to enjoy the presentation and of course the great dinner as well.
Solar Lodge met to discuss our proposal to purchase the property on 23 October, and on 8 November they met again and voted to accept our proposal. Efforts are underway now to begin the transfer of the property to the Scottish Rite. This will be a great occasion for all concerned as it will ensure certain continuation of Solar 914 and allow for an expanded mission of the facility to the Huntsville Masonic Center. Please stay tuned for newsworthy updates here and in the newsletter.
If you have not seen it yet, Bro. John Meyers has assembled another excellent newsletter with contributions from many of the officers in the Valley. Please take the time to review it, and even consider adding to the next issue. We're looking for your posts on community events both in and out of Masonry. We'd also like to know what is going on with our members. Did you get married, have a child, complete a degree, send your last child off to the military or school? Tell us what is going on with you and your family and send along a picture to post with it. Any other articles you'd like to add or see added is up to you. This is your newsletter and we want to make it relevent to the whole fraternity. Input for the 1st Quarter 2019 newsletter should be in to Brother John Meyers the first week of December please!
My goal for the coming year is to build a sense of community not only in Huntsville's Scottish Rite, but to bring all North Alabama Masonic bodies closer together as a community of Masons with Solar Lodge and the Huntsville Masonic Center as a focal point for Masonic community activities. Lets take our individual Masonic organizations and create a tighter, more cohesive Masonic Family, together.
Merry Christmas to you all!
