Worshipful Master's Address
Sam "Whitt" Whittleton
The Wardens, Elected and Appointed Officers, Past Masters and Brethren, thank you for electing me to Maceo Boston Jr. Lodge #145’s East.
It gives me great pleasure to be able to serve as your Worshipful Master for 2019 -2020. I am extremely grateful of the honor that you have bestowed upon me, the confidence you have shown to entrust me as the Master of our Lodge. This year, we will continue to focus on Masonic education and continue to increase our presence in Howard County to build our brotherhood.
Our Past Masters are very important to Maceo Boston Jr. Lodge # 145 history, whom I will seek for wise counsel, wisdom, and guidance. It is important to understand that every member of the craft has a voice as well as the expertise of our Master Masons. We will have a collective voice in the direction of our lodge.
As I hold this gavel, I do not view it as a symbol of authority, but as a symbol of trust. The trust you have lain in me to conduct the affairs of this Lodge in accordance with our By-Laws and Constitution of the Grand Lodge.
I leave you with this my Brothers,
“Ye are the light of the world... Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works...” Matthew 5:16
In closing, may the favor, peace and blessings from God be upon each of us.
