Greetings to all my Doric 44 brothers. I wish to take this opportunity for thanking you for electing me to be your Worshipful Master for the year 2021. I am truly humbled. I wish to introduce the rest of your officers. My Sr Warden in Wor David Davies Worshipful Master of Berkley Lodge, Jr Warden is Wor Todd Eastlick Past Master Doric Lodge, Treasurer Wor Kenny Boyce Past Master Doric Lodge, Sec Wor Terry Bledsoe Jr Past Master Doric Lodge, Sr Deacon Bro Terry Riggs, Jr Deacon Brother Justen Wooten, Tyler Bro Bill Fisher. Trustees are Terry Bledsoe 3yr, Todd Eastlick 2yr, and John Ingersoll 1yr.
2021 will be another year of many challenges for us all. To begin with the Governors announcement of Dec 12 placing new restrictions through Jan 31 2021. All public gatherings are to be no more than 10 people. Masks are to be worn by all in attendance. With that said, Doric Lodge will still hold Lodge even if it is just the officers and 2 members. I have not begun to look for speakers as we still do not know what the future has in store for us. There will be no meals served until we receive more guidance from Grand Lodge. Our fundraisers in the past have been Fish Fry and Bar B Que. Due to COVID 19 restrictions that are in place we are unable at this time to schedule these.
I want to take this opportunity to Thank Wor Bledsoe and his officers for the fantastic job they did as leadership of your lodge. They faced many challenges and disappointments associated with the COVID pandemic. My hat goes off to all of you. Job Well Done.
I along with my wife wish each and everyone as well as your families a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY and SAFE NEW YEAR.
