April 2018 AGL Article for The Word

Mar 11, 2018 | From the AGLs, News & Events from The Grapevine

Greetings Brethren,

April is finally here and I look forward to the warmer weather, spring rains and the chance to work the fields on the farm.

Many Lodges within our District are doing Degree work as we finish out our year. R.W. Charles Dellow and I have been busy attending practice sessions and working with newer members on their ritual work.

Never be afraid to learn a new part of the Ritual. If you are trying to learn a long lecture, R.W. Dellow and I suggest that you break it down into smaller parts. As you become proficient with one section, move onto the next.  We also have been suggesting that it is possible to split up the long lectures and use multiple Brothers who can learn different sections of the work presented. This has worked out very well for the Lodges that have tried this method.

As R.W. Dellow and I close out our 2 years as your AGL’s we would like to express our sincere thanks for the warm welcomes and Brotherly love we have received throughout the District. It has been an honor and a pleasure to work with all of the Lodges within the Cortland Madison District.

As always, R.W. Dellow and I will see you throughout the District. Please call if you need our assistance.

Clinton S. Brooks
