January's Message

Brethren & Ladies of Palmer,

Let me start by sincerely thanking everyone for their vote of confidence in my abilities to lead our lodge this year. It isn’t going to be easy, but with the help of our members, active and inactive, with a little luck, it should be a good year and maybe we will even have a little fun along the way!

I appreciate everyone who braved the weather on December 1st and came down for the installation. Brother Randy Randall did his usual stellar job conducting the installation ceremony, and many thanks to brothers Tim Kloss and Jim Urbanski for filling in for the Chaplain and Senior Warden for the people that couldn’t make it. All in all, it was a good night and it went off without a hitch.

This is going to be a busy year, and I will be calling on our members and Past Masters frequently to help me with planning degrees and the other functions we have coming up. We have three degrees coming up in January: one E.A. and two F.C. We are also expecting a couple more petitions in the near future, and we have two more F.C. and two M.M. degrees on the horizon. In addition to the upcoming degrees, we will be having a couple of new events in this year including a Trivia Night in February or March with a guest “Question Master.” Of course, we will be having the Spaghetti Dinner this spring, our Scholarship Dinner, and so on. I also hope to visit some other Lodges in the area during their stated meetings or other events they have going on.

I am looking forward to working with each of you to bring back some of the traditions of this Lodge that have been established over the past 96 years, and perhaps, make some new ones along the way.

I am excited about this year and am very confident in the line of officers for 2008.

Please remember to approach life with the same amount of zeal you approached your first degree with. I hope to meet all of the members of Henry L. Palmer Lodge before the end of the year.

Fraternally yours,
Pat Cholka, Worshipful Master
