Worshipful Mike Reyes
The 2016 Officers of Granada Hills Lodge No. 378
We are now entering the wonderful month of May, in which the warm sun and nice weather seem to perk up our minds and spirit. Come and join the brethren of the Granada Hills Lodge in some fellowship and camaraderie. Eventful days are now coming before us as we head towards the summer season. More fun activities will be conducted in the next months, such as our annual golf tournament on June 4th, camping and shooting in Santa Maria on July 1st to the 4th and much more. Be sure to keep watch for the schedule announcement in our monthly news letter, mobile app, and Facebook updates.
The officers of the lodge are now preparing and advancing to their next respective seats in preparation for the ensuing Masonic year. We will be doing more degree works this month of May, as we continue to guide our younger members to advance to the next level and continue their journey in seeking further light in masonry. Expect to see our next line of officers to perform and conduct most of the following degree conferral’s as they get familiar and qualified for their respective seats for the year 2017.
Congratulations to Brother Jeremy Brown on being raised to the sublime degree of master mason and completing all his proficiency in full form. I am so proud of all your achievements and I am sure that all this hard work and dedication will be your guiding path to be a better person as we all masons strive on making good men better.
Mother’s Day is celebrated here in America in the month of May and it will be celebrated on Sunday, May 8th. It is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in our society. Be sure to honor and give thanks all the Mothers, Grand Mothers, Wives and to others who play the role of motherhood in our lives.
Memorial Day is also celebrated in this month of May. It is traditional to fly the flag of the United States at half staff from dawn until noon. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Lately, Memorial Day has become less of an occasion of remembrance. Many people choose to hold picnics, sports events and family gatherings or go on a road trip on this weekend. This also seems to be the start of the summer season for everyone. As we all enjoy this long weekend of fun and excitement, let us take part in the National Moment of Remembrance at 3 PM. On Monday, May 30th, wherever you are, stop, and give a minute of your time for awareness or prayer to those men and women who died while serving our beloved country.
Everyone is cordially invited to attend our next stated dinner/meeting on May 31st. Our meeting will begin at 7:30 pm, dinner and fellowship to convene prior to our meeting at 6:30 PM in our dining area.
Come join us for delicious Cinco de Mayo treats which will be hosted and prepared by our Junior Warden. Please inform Brother Rock Sodusta to confirm your reservation or register by using the GHL mobile app on your smart phone. This will ensure that enough food and refreshments can be provided to everyone. All family and friends are welcome to attend the dinner and all regular masons are welcome to attend the meeting.
Hope to see more of you in the lodge.
Sincerely and Fraternally,
