District Deputy’s Message Aug. 9th. 2018


Although we have called off from Labor, there are still many exciting events that have been taking place within the First Masonic District.  Thank you for the invitations to attend your family picnics and Lodge events in July and August. The Hunt of a Lifetime sponsored by the Windows Sons and the Annual Ox Roast at Ashara-Casiphia Lodge, No. 551, as well as many others, were very enjoyable.  Keep up the hard work and the fellowship, it is appreciated by all.

The Right Worshipful Grand Master, Brother S. Eugene Herritt has formed a Ritual Competition throughout the state.  It is my pleasure to announce that the First Masonic District, with the assistance of Brother Jeffrey S. Moyer, PM, Principal of the School of Instruction and 16 other Members of our District have formed a team to represent our District. Due to previously scheduled events, the preliminary judging will take place at the School Of Instruction at the Manheim Lodge No. 587 on Monday, August 27, 1018. School will start promptly at 6:45 p.m. with a short opening and judging will begin at 7:00 p.m.  Brother Larry A. Buzzard, PM, Director of Ritualistic Work and Brother Paul A. Sutcliffe, Jr., PM, Regional Instructor, Region 2 will be in attendance to judge our team. There will be no questions or comments made during the judging. This will be a great evening to learn, observe, and support the Members of our District.  Please support them.

I am looking forward to seeing you and getting back to work.  Please take a look at the upcoming events and put them on your schedule.  

Brother Ronald B. Carson, DDGM 01
