Installation of Officers

Today was the installation of officers for my mother lodge. I had the distinction of being the only recycled Past Master in the progressive line. Furthermore, Adelphi Momauguin is showing it's newly formed youthful image. The oldest brother in our 8 man progressive line (and Chaplain, which is the seat for our outgoing Past Master) is 35. Most of our officers are in their mid twenties. This makes us one of the youngest lodges in our Grand Jurisdiction. The future of our lodge looks bright and hopeful.

Worshipful Master Daniel W. Hawthorne has a full program for the year concentrating on Masonic Education and giving presentations during most non-degree stated communications. Adelphi Momauguin Lodge #63 will have a step-up night in April, where JW James Tirrell will sit in the East for the first time. In June, the lodge will host a joint table lodge with Corinthian Lodge #103 in honor of Saint John the Baptist Day. This is just a short list of the planned events that our lodge has planned for the ensuing year. It sure will be busy and enjoyable.

On a personal note, our new Worshipful Master, Daniel W. Hawthorne, has been one of my dearest friends for almost 15 years. Our new Junior Warden, James Tirrell, is my blood brother and I have the great honor to call him a friend and a brother. I will be sitting in the West as Senior Warden for the year. It fills me with joy that our lodge has entrusted us with the three principle officerships of the lodge. I have no doubt that we will "dwell together in unity."

Congratulations to all the officers fo Adelphi Momaguin Lodge #63, A.F. & A.M., North Haven, CT!!!

Congratulations to you and to your Lodge.

Our average age of line officers is declining as well. For the first time in years, we will not have a "re-tread" in the line either.
