Worshipful Master's Message

September 1st 2017


I hope the summer has been relaxing and restful for you and your family.  We had a busy first half of the year, so it was nice to have some time away from our labors at Annapolis Lodge.  Now as the summer draws to a close, it is again time to pick up our working tools and return to our craft.

Our first meeting might be one of the most interesting meetings of the year!  On September 18th we will be having a speaker from the Civil War Research Lodge will give a presentation.  This is a can’t miss meeting and I expect to see the sidelines full, and maybe, a few up in the balcony!

The next meeting will be a very important one, as well.  On October 2, 2017 Brother Chris Kircher, our Senior Warden, will be running the degree for the Master Mason conferral!   It will be such a pleasure to see him and the rest of line advance.  Masonry is about growth and this is a great way to personally witness our officers grow into their soon-to-be roles as leaders of Annapolis Lodge.

I also want to point out one more important date.  October 20, 2017, is our annual Bennie G. Owens Charitable Foundation Gala.  This is our premier event of the year our largest fundraiser to support our non-profit partners, Cystic Fibrosis, Maryland Therapeutic Riding, and the Bennie G. Owens Maryland Masonic Youth.  Please send an email to events@annapolislodge.com to reserve your tickets.  I hope to see you and your wives/significant others/friends at this wonderful event.

Again, I look forward to seeing everyone over the next few months at the lodge.  We are all busy but what sets us apart from the rest  is the connections we have formed through this wonderful fraternity.   Please keep those bonds strong by coming out to share in the meetings and events with your Brothers.

Sincerely & Fraternally,
Lyle Wisner
Worshipful Master
