March 2017 DDGM Article for The Word


If you have attended one of my Official Visits, then it should come as no surprise to you that I hold recipients of the Dedicated Service Award in high esteem. As I’ve said numerous times before, “DDGMs come and go, but DSAs are here to stay!” These Brothers are the backbones of our Lodges, continually giving of their time, talents, and energy to make their Lodge and our Fraternity a better place for all of us.

Recently, our District gained two new DSA recipients. I won’t name them here, as I’d prefer to have their respective Lodges do so, but I’d like to take a moment to congratulate them on their achievement and to thank them for the “sweat equity” that they’ve put into their Lodges.   My Brothers you, together with DSA recipients from across our jurisdiction, represent many of the ideals that our Craft espouses to its initiates. Many of our Lodges have candidates entering or in the Degree process. I hope that each of these Brothers-to-be looks to you for guidance and Light.

Speaking of Degrees, I’ve got to cut this short, as I have some studying to do!
