Third box down, middle column, is an important letter from the staff of Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center.
I give honor to the Grand Architect of the Universe, the Beneficent, the Merciful, to Whom all praises are due. It is with pleasure that I serve you in the capacity of Worshipful Master of this historic Bannaker Lodge No. 3. Working together in peace and harmony, we will make great progress to achieve our universal tenants of Freemasonry: Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. Let us continue to spread the cement of brotherly love and affection, that cement which unites us into one sacred band or society of brothers.
2019 represents a renewed spirit, a renewed mind, and a renewed lodge by improving ourselves through the theme of “Let You Light So Shine.” Our labors in the quarries will focus on four initiatives, which are: Social Responsibility, Masonic Education, Brotherhood, and Charity. Exhibiting our efforts through the theme and initiatives, Bannaker Lodge No. 3 will surely uphold “The Standard” and be the beacon of light for others to follow.
I look forward to a wonderful year! Let us meet on the level, act by the line of the plumb, and part on the square as we prepare ourselves to be great and be the lodge that God has called us to be.
Brian Walker, Worshipful Master
