From the East

Brethren, I hope these words find you in good health, and in good spirits. I want to congratulate the Degree team and thank R∴ W∴ Rob Estel for such an amazing MM Degree. I know myself and those who attended were amazed by such good work. Thank you to all the Brothers that were able to assist R∴ H∴ Estel I’m putting on a masterful 2nd half of the Degree.

My Brothers, I’m very confident in the leadership and direction of the Lodge. I think Boca-Delray No. 171 has a bright future. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the first meeting in April, but I know you are in good hands as our SW Alex Ferrari will have his second go in the East. Please join us as I’m sure Brother SW Ferrari will have a nice night planned.



Fraternally,

W∴ Anthony W. Denton

From the South



Dear Beloved Brethren,

I hope you and your family are well. Don't feel embarrassed or hesitate to reach out if you need anything. As the most fantastic fraternity on Earth, we are here to be a better men and help our Brothers and family. I offer my prayers for those who need me, especially to our Brethren and families in Ukraine and all Ukraine people. I hope this war ends shortly.


I apologize for the food shortage during our DDGM visit at the last meeting on March 17. I was on work leave visiting my family in Brazil, and I planned with the catering company to deliver food for 50 people. I am addressing this matter and will work diligently to learn and correct it for future dinners. I want to highlight that my stewards, Brother Richard and Brother Mercado, are doing a terrific job. I will keep my attention on serving a healthy and tasteful dinner. I hope to see you all in April.

With love, fraternally,


Fraternally,

J.W. Rafael Salles



 


From the Secretary



Greetings Brethren, I received sad news recently informing me that W:. Jerome (Jerry) Scheib Passed to the Celestial Lodge Above on December 29 th , 2021. He had recently relocated to Lake City with his wife Elisabeth. She plans on relocating back to the Boca area; we will conduct a memorial service for our Dearly Departed Brother at that time. W:. Scheib had an impressive Masonic History, he was a 42-year Mason, Raised in Boca Raton Lodge No. 328. He held an Orange, Silver and Gold Proficiency Card, District Chairman for seven years on various committees, aside from being Worshipful Master he was Treasurer for 9-years and Secretary for 4-years. He proudly held a Perpetual Membership as well. Brother Scheib is, in Masonry considered a “Bright Mason” he will certainly be missed.


During this past Communication, I had the pleasure of reading two Petitions for the Degrees, and after reading so many, a certain question resonated with me for the first time. “Do you promise to pay your Lodge dues at the beginning of the year”. Brethren, we all enter “Yes” on this question. Please think about that.


A word of Praise for our Lodge in that when speaking to visitors and prospective members, they all seem to speak from the same script in that they all say how welcoming and inviting Boca Delray members are. For so many they are sold on Petitioning our Lodge. Initiating 22 men last year is the proof of the pudding.

Keep up the great work Brothers.


F&S

R∴W∴ Mike Sinatra

Secretary
