MASTERS AND WARDENS 8/24-18
We had a good time at Masters and Wardens. We won another tie! Thanks to all the Brothers who came out. We had a great time after Masters and Wardens at the Brass Tap. This should encourage more Brothers to come out to Masters and Wardens.
HONORARY MEMBER – R:. W:. TONY “THE IRISHMAN” CHAVEZ
Tonight we had the honor and privilege of bestowing Honorary Membership to R:. W:. Chavez. Ever since he moved to the Tampa Bay area, he has been willing to help all the Lodges. He has been very helpful to J.F. Swartsel! Every time we ask him for help, he has been there for us. Whether it is for a lecture, charge, masonic education or just general masonic information, R:. W:. Chavez answers the call. He is a constant inspiration to our Craft to be a better Mason and Brother.
DISTRICT DEPUTY GRAND MASTER’S OFFICIAL VISIT TO J.F. SWARTSEL
Great turnout at Lodge to hear the Grand Master’s message and listen to the District Committeemen’s messages. We also want to congratulate the Brothers from A W Windhorst for coming to Lodge to retrieve the Traveling Gavel.
GRAND MASTER OF MASONS OF FLORIDA – OFFICIAL VISIT TO DISTRICTS 19 & 20
Great showing from the two districts. There were over 300 people in attendance! Swartsel had a good showing. We presented the GM and the First Lady with donations to their respective charities.
VISIT TO AW WINDHORST
What a great night of fellowship at AW Windhorst Lodge No. 185! We had a great turn out and the Brothers of Windhorst were very welcoming. It was not our normal monthly visit to another Lodge. They had the Traveling Gavel and we wanted it. They were even nice enough to trow in a tie for our Worshipful Master. Yes, it was of the many ties Windhorst has won over the past sevveral months at Masters and Wardens. Make no mistake Worshipful Master Greif still wants to win one and break Windhorst’s streak at Masters and Wardens.
