Manfred Diel Jr
I would like to acknowledge a JOB WELL DONE to the members of the color guard for the presentation of the colors at the Grand Lodge Annual and at the banquet that evening. The entire lodge can take pride in the accolades that continue to be rendered by many of the other visiting Officers. This will be a continuing obligation of Overseas Lodge and I would like to remind the Brothers that we are interested in having additional members added to the color guard. Please see me or Worshipful Joseph Bennett if you would like to be part of this contingent.
Overseas will be going dark after this next communication, however, the lodge officers will not be taking a holiday. There is much work to do to plan for the coming year and to assure that all activities are properly scheduled. The officers will define our “mission” for the next year and will have a battle plan in place by September. In addition, our relocation to Jenks will be in September with our first communication to be held at Jenks in October.
During this period of darkness, please remember to be ever vigilant while driving and anticipate stupid moves by other drivers. Motorcycles are everywhere and many of our brothers are riders. Above all, we live for our families and by exercising a small bit of positive and pro-active thinking will benefit all of us. To quote one of the Proverbs: “Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on a the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and your fellow man”. I bid you all a wonderful and safe summer.
For the Worshipful Master; Dale Euga, Senior Warden
