I am truly honored and very proud to assume the role of Worshipful Master for the year 2017. My travels to the East would not have been possible without the guidance, support and encouragement from the Brothers of this great Lodge, to each and everyone, I am forever grateful.
My heartfelt thanks to WM Wayne Penley Sr., for trusting me as his Senior Warden. It was indeed an honor and pleasure to work with you. I also express my sincere gratitude to WBro Ben Schuman, who encouraged me to step-up and accept the Junior Warden’s position and for the support that he has given.
I congratulate Bro Ross Abraham and Bro David Beaver, our new Senior and Junior Wardens. I look forward to working together with you and the rest of the officers’ line, as we continue to bring good men into Masonry.
It is going to be another zestful year at Mt. Moriah as we bring old traditions back and introduce new ideas as well. We will continue to build a strong brotherhood by supporting each other and celebrating diversity. I encourage those Brothers who have not been in the lodge for quite a while to have it as one of their New Year’s resolution to visit the lodge this year and rekindle that Masonic interest.
If you have any suggestions, comments and concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I am a phone call, text and email away.
Sincerely and fraternally yours,
Randie V. Ursal
Worshipful Master-Elect 2017
