District #2 Newsletter – 4/17/16

College.jpg

Hello District 2!

Lots of great activity has been happening throughout the district lately! Lots of degree work, fundraisers & charity events in the lodges plus the Masonic College and Grand Master’s Testimonial dinner just came to the area. The momentum is very positive and hopefully you can feel and build on it in your lodges.

Thanks to the folks that have shared their lodge calendars so far. Keep them coming – the district team looks forward to sitting with you soon. The D2 meeting & banquet will be held in a few days. While dinner reservations are closed, we’d love to have you join for the meeting at 6:30. See below for details.

Keep up the good work!

Fraternally,

Tom Stevens, DDGM#2
