By Lyman Penning, PM — Sr. Warden-elect
Happy Holidays! I hope that everyone had a great tasting dinner for Thanksgiving, We are coming to the end of the year as we reflect on all of the events that have taken place for 2023.
The last events to mark on your calendar are the Stated Meeting dinner on Thursday, December 7th, our Installation of Officers and Luncheon on Saturday, December 9th (Lunch will be at 12:00 PM followed at 1:00 PM by the Installation), and finally, the Children's Christmas Party on Saturday, December 16th at the Castro Valley Masonic Center at 12:00 PM. I have received word from reliable sources that a jolly old man in a white beard and red suit will be making a special appearance for all the good little girls and boys. Let's all give a “Ho Ho Ho” to Santa Claus.
On December 9th, I will move up to the office of Senior Warden. It has been enjoyable serving as Junior Warden for 2023, Now I am looking forward to moving up to Senior Warden and preparing to serve as Worshipful Master in 2025 (if I am elected).
Have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and I look forward to seeing all of you in Lodge in 2024.
