Greetings Brother. I hope all is well with you and your family and you’re having a joyful Holiday season. I pray 2017 treated you well and that you will have a prosperous 2018. I write to advise you of current events within Blaine C. Clay No.14. Elections were held during the 1st meeting of the month and the results of our elected officers are reflected at the top of this page.
The vision for the upcoming year is to continue building on the good fortune we had during 2017. We were blessed not to have any member’s light extinguished during 2017, we’ve maintained a membership of 95, only losing 4 members from roll for the year, and we ended our fiscal year with a surplus greater than last year. Brother, I ask we exemplify the definition of Lodge for 2018; your presence is solicited to assemble to conduct Masonic Work, promote friendship, morality and brotherly love. The 1st meeting of January we will review the agenda for the year, announce Appointed Officers and the Committees required.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to remind you of the 135th Anniversary of Blaine C. Clay Lodge scheduled for February 24, 2018 at the Plantation Inn of Houma Louisiana. Our Banquet Committee Chair, PM Warb Pledger, has worked diligently for the past few months leading the organization of the event to make it a joyous success. He has asked that every member of our Lodge purchase a ticket to assist. The cost of a ticket is $40.00 and can be attained by contacting SW Patrick Vergin (985) 688-7669.
