Brothers, I would like to thank you all for the honour of electing me Worshipful Master of Fidelity St Johns#3 for yet another term. As you all know the past two years have been very difficult in different ways, but this is a new year and I look forward to continuing the positive momentum of this amazing lodge and the excellent work of all of our brothers. This year we all have a work to do, we will be focusing on more charitable events, we have many new brothers joining and as I said last year each business meeting should have little business and far more masonic light discussions. Benjamin Franklin said, “Masonic labour is purely a labour of love. He who seeks to draw Masonic wages in gold and silver will be disappointed. The wages of a Mason are earned and paid in their dealings with one another; sympathy that begets sympathy, kindness begets kindness, helpfulness begets helpfulness, and these are the wages of a Mason.” Let each of us endeavour to take these words to heart and let 2021 be the year we truly earn these masonic wages.
Worshipful Master – WB Andrew Flasko
