Exalted Ruler’s March Message
WOW! How time did fly, my year has drawn to an end with this being my final message as your ER. I am thankful for the P.E.R.’s, Officers, Committee Chairs, Committee Members, the Membership, and my wife, Charlene. Without your assistance through consultation, direction, comments (both positive and negative) and the wonderful support, this challenging year may have been discouraging.
I can say it has been a roller coaster of emotions. There were unforeseen challenges and some trying times for me. I must say I leave Office feeling satisfied with my accomplishments and have no regrets for a few errors, that I feel I addressed for the best of the Lodge. We end this year in a good financial place, thank you Mark and new Treasurer Kathy. The unexpected resignations of the entire House Committee required my appointment of a new Chair, thank you Chief and your selection of committee members.
A number of necessary repairs were made to maintain operations, specifically the
new cube refrigeriator, a beer-
In closing, I want to congratulate the newly elected ER, Officers, Trustee, and the new appointments of Committee Chairs and hope you read the GER’s Message in this Bulletin. I would only echo his inspiring words. Also former Secretary Chris has outdone himself with his final Bulletin Message, Kudos. On behalf of the Lodge we thank you for your service as our Secretary. To all Committee Members and those who have helped in some small way I truly thank you for your efforts. I leave proud to have served you and our Lodge and I look forward to any assistance or encouragement I can contribute. Thank you, everyone, it has been my pleasure!
Soon to be a P.E.R.,
Your Outgoing ER, Ben
