The new Masonic year is upon us, and your DEO’s would like to wish you all the best for the coming year. Set large goals and never hesitate to achieve them. The success of our lodges, our district, and our Grand Lodge is in the hands of each individual brother. To aid you in your preparation for the coming year in your lodge, the DEOs are again offering training for all the Wardens, Deacons, and LEOs in the district. This annual training will be held in conjunction with the Past Masters’ Convocation at the Hamilton Masonic Center on Saturday, December 7, 2019. Registration will begin at 8 AM, with the sessions beginning at 9 AM. The individual sessions should be completed by noon. All Wardens, Deacons, and LEOs are REQUIRED to attend these valuable and informative training sessions.
Again this year, the DEOs will be presenting DEO Education evenings throughout the Second District on the following dates:
Tuesday January 21, 2020: Alpha Lodge #729
Tuesday March 24, 2020: Englewood Lodge #743
Thursday May 7, 2020: Minerva Lodge #98
All three sessions will begin at 7 PM, and all brethren are invited to join in on these educational sessions. Representation of all District lodges at these sessions is highly encouraged and appreciated. Greater learning is had with a wider diversity of points of view at each of these educational evenings. Topics for each of the sessions will be announced at a later date.
Hearty congratulations go out the the following Brethren for earning membership in the Royal Scofield Society during its inaugural year:

“Give the brethren a chance to do something, anything, no matter how small or unimportant. A Brother convinced that he is helpful is enthusiastic.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt
“Not all Masons are obligated on the Christian Bible. Masonry is universal and men of every creed are eligible for membership so long as they accept the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. Therefore, the candidate should be obligated on the Book of the Sacred Law which he accepts as such since his obligation is a solemn and binding one.” ~ George Washington
