A word from our Officers…
From the East:
Happy New Year’s brothers. May the New Year bring health, happiness and prosperity to you and your family. I would like to thank all the brothers for unanimously electing me to the Worshipful Master’s position, and the past Masters for an incredible job performing the installation, as well as everyone involved in making the day, a day I will never forget. I will continue to govern the lodge as my successors have done.
Over the course of 2018 some of my goals are to raise new solid brothers. I would like to teach as well as to learn more about masonry, to promote more family fellowship and bring new fund raising efforts to the lodge.
I am excited and looking forward to working with you all. Please, if anyone has any suggestions don’t be afraid to bring them before the lodge.
WM Jeff Cooper
From the West:
Happy New Year everyone! I hope the beginning of 2018 finds everyone well. I congratulate Worshipful Master Jeff Cooper on his election to the East and thank you for electing me as Senior Warden. I will endeavor to assist the Worshipful Master in all of the lodge meetings, initiatives, and rituals to the very best of my ability.
Please know that as I am here to act as the Worshipful Master’s “right hand”, I am also here for each of you individually. If you are ever in need of my assistance in any way please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
With the New Year we often take a moment to self reflect and pledge to improve ourselves in some way individually by eating less, exercising more, volunteering more, etc. I would ask that you also take time to reflect on your family, friends, and Masonry.
Remembering that as Masons we are all here as brothers to support one another. With our support of one another there is no challenge we cannot overcome and nothing our Masonic family cannot accomplish. Let us come together, be involved, and support our Worshipful Master to make 2018 the most successful year it can be for Compass Lodge!
Brother Christian Godbout
From the South:
First of all, I would like to take this occasion to thank you for the vote of confidence in electing me as your Junior Warden for the upcoming year. At Compass we have been fortunate to have a progressing officer line going through the chairs.
I would be remiss if I didn’t publicly acknowledge all the wisdom and advise I have been privileged to receive from many brothers over the years.
As the new year begins may we take the opportunity to reflect on last year and plan ahead for the year to come.
The new WM has laid out his calendar on our website and more details will follow as we go forward. For those brothers that may not have been to lodge in a while or if any brother wants to bring along someone who has expressed interest in our fraternity, socialization in our dining hall is top notch and a great way to break the ice as we break bread. Be certain that we will enjoy some good food and companionship in the upcoming months, anchored by our Fellowship breakfasts on the second Sunday of the month, starting in January.
I wish to recognize our stewards, Gabriel Cologna and Jules Martin for their acceptance to the senior and junior positions respectively. They have already jumped in with both feet doing an excellent job at the installation and the annual holiday party.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
Brother Christian Schunmann
