We had a great meeting in February. We conferred the Entered Apprentice Degree on two candidates. I would like to welcome Brothers Roberto Borba and Stephen Beausejour to our brotherhood and to Overseas Lodge. Next time you see them, welcome them to Free- masonry.
I want to thank several Brothers that came and helped us put on a great degree. In addition to the Officers of Overseas Lodge that were able to attend, we had sitting as Chaplain Worshipful Mark Kelleher, in the west was Brother Melvin Silverio, at Junior Deacon was Brother Mark Lomastro, and as Senior Steward we had Brother Ryan Sherry. Thank you all for a degree that the two candidates will remember for the rest of their lives.
Overseas Lodge No. 40 also revived the Sweetheart Weekend at Cape Cod. It had not been done for a while. We had twenty two couples from around the Masonic Community and I think everyone had a good time. I hope we can duplicate it again in the future. My thanks to everyone for their contributions to the event with food, drink, and good companionship. I will give a very special thank you to our Ladies that were the main support in organizing this event. Thank you to my Lady Denise, Rosemary DiMascio, and Sandy Barboza. They worked very hard on making this a success.
These events show that even though you had to have been in the military to be a member of Overseas Lodge, you still can join us for a good time at any event. We are very much a part of the Masonic Community. Until we meet again in Lodge, I wish you all well.
Bryan Martin Worshipful Master
