Midwinter Update 2015

Well, dear readers,

I always like to give a little update on where I'm at. It's as much for me as it is for all of you.


First off, I've had an awesome time on the Masonic Roundtable. If you haven't watched us, you're missing out. We've had great fun discussing masonic topics for the past year and we're raring to go again this year. Stay tuned for future episodes. I'm really excited for our Prince Hall episode.



As many of you know, I've been elected as the Illustrious Master for Northfield Council No. 12. It's exciting to be in an East, especially of a fast growing and exciting body like Northfield Council. We have a lot planned, in particular, our Table Council in September.

I also participated in the One Day again this year. I was the big part for the Fellowcraft degree. All of us did an awesome job. Like seriously, all of us did great. Of course, I still blame, er..., thank, WBro. Tim for getting me into this. We raised 33 brothers and the ritual work was par excellence.

A major thing that I am looking forward to is Minnesota AMD Day. Yes, that's right, I'm announcing something huge. The AMD Council I am a member of is hosting a first ever Minnesota AMD Day on July 18th at the Savage Masonic Temple. The plan is to have all the AMD Councils and companions come out to Savage and put on a degree or paper. With 2-3 degrees and possibly a speaker, this is going to be a huge event. I'm super excited.



Finally, I'm also preparing and planning my year as Commander of Faribault Commandery No. 8, tradition prevailing. No idea how I have been finding time but every moment I spend in Commandery is good. It's exciting but also challenging. Yanking a near dead Commandery back to life is a very violent process. We have lost momentum and I hope we can kick it back up. My plan is to institute the Knight School: Summer of Awesome. More details to follow but I think you'll all dig it.

All in all, I look forward to another awesome Masonic year.

Any advice for me? Leave me a comment below.

Great job on the middle chamber lecture at the one day. One day I will attempt to learn that massive lecture!
I had a part in the EA degree that day.

Excellent. If you ever need help on it, let me know. I've found out that we are one of the few states left that requires its full presentation. That gives me a certain level of pride.
