Brethren of Granada Hills Lodge No. 378,
I am a man who is truly blessed. I have been blessed with a family. A wife and a children who share my life and make it a blessing to be alive. I have been blessed to always have food on my table and a roof over my head. I have also been blessed outside of my family with the activities that I have come to love and enjoy. I have been blessed to be able to serve every chair from appointed to elected in my fraternity.
I have had the honor of being elected to the highest chair of Worshipful Master as every ma-son who joins this fraternity should strive for. Serving my lodge as Worshipful Master has been a great joy and a privilege that I do not take lightly.
I have learned the works, studied the arts, and always gave my time to freemasonry.
I am humbled and now that my time has come to an end in the east, I thank those who have helped me get there and stood by my side every meeting, called me Worshipful Master, and most importantly called me brother.
I never knew this is where I would be today and I am proud to continue in the line of masons before me and am happy to pass it on to the next in line who is worthy of this high honor. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Worshipful Master and thank you for your help throughout the year and thank you for trusting in me.
master is nearly finished, but my days of service, I hope, are not. In the years ahead.
