June 2015 AGL article for The Word

Greetings Brethren, This will be my final article as AGL for our District, and I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the last two years, and hopefully I have helped some of you improved on your Ritual work. I would now like to introduce my replacement, V.W. Brother Bart Chapin Master of Cautious Lodge. Bart is one of a handful of Brothers in our District that can recite the Historical Lecture for the 1st Degree, and rumor has it he is well on his way to memorizing the Middle Chamber Lecture as well, which will place him on a level few have achieved. Together with V.W. Brother Scott Cary I am confident our District will continue to rank high in our Ritual work, as noted by our DDGM in his travels around the state.

As for Degree work…Cortland/Madison will be going strong all summer with several Lodges balloting on new Petitions right up to the end of our Masonic year. Please step up and offer to help when asked. Feel free to contact Bart at 315-750-0535 to schedule a rehearsal. See you at Investiture !! Dick Freeman
