December Trestleboard

December Trestleboard

Brethren,
As I write this final Trestleboard as Master of this Lodge for the year, I reminded of the emotions I felt a twelve months ago: we were in the middle of a global pandemic, the future of our meetings were uncertain, limitations on the amount of people allowed in gatherings were being implemented, my pending installation was in jeopardy of being cancelled, and the entire membership of the Lodge was looking to me for leadership. To be honest, I felt a little overwhelmed. I wanted to do the Lodge and the membership well in my year. Was I ready for this? Could I lead the Lodge in this time of confusion and chaos? With hesitation in my mind, I took the East. Now, in reflection, I can say I was ready. I did know what I was doing, despite my hesitations. And, as many Past Masters said, it would, it took me until October to realize that. I want to share what I learned this year as a person, and as a Mason.

November Trestleboard

November Trestleboard

Brethren,

I purposefully held off on this edition of the Trestleboard until after the Grand Lodge of Virginia Meeting was held the weekend of November 5 and 6, 2021 in Richmond.  I wanted to take some time to give a Masonic “thank you” to outgoing 2020-2021 DDGM RW J. David King for a job well done, and a “congratulations and welcome” to our 2022 DDGM RW Bennett J. Corrado, Sr. for District 2!  Well done Right Worshipfuls on your service to your respected Lodges and the District as whole.  We look forward to seeing RW King “in retirement” as DDGM and to RW Corrado on his leadership in the coming Masonic Year.  A further summary of the Grand Lodge meeting will be sent out shortly once issued by the Grand Secretary.  One important item to note: Herndon Lodge was one of 25 Lodges awarded the 2020-2021 Hillman Award at the Grand Lodge Session!  Congratulations are to be shared with Worshipful Brother Howie Snowdon for his leadership last year as this was a two-year effort to win the Hillman due to the pandemic shutdown.  Well done Brethren!
