Claude M. Kent Lodge No. 681



We continue to embrace a year of growth in Claude M Kent Lodge and this month we were happy to welcome our newest Entered Apprentice Bro David Kornel at our regular meeting. Regrettably our scheduled emergent meeting had to be cancelled due to last minute candidate availability. This may have afforded the CMK officers the benefit of resting before our official visit!

11 April will be the date of the Official Visit of the DDGM to CMK. The meeting will commence at 6pm and dinner will be served at 6:30pm. We have a full agenda which principally consists with the conferral of a first degree. The evening will end with presentation of Grand Certificates, an FCF Certificate and the presentation of a 50-year pin. It will be a pleasure to showcase our newer brethren as they continue to do a tremendous job in their new roles. I am most confident that they will live up to our expectation and quite possibly even surpass the standards they have already reached. I am looking forward to a great night.

On 19 March, we conducted a memorial service for our late Very Worshipful Brother Joseph (Joe) Glesta. It was a most solemn occasion for the family and friends who were in attendance.  They later expressed their sincerest gratitude for the moving tributes, the dignity for the way in which the ceremony was conducted and particularly gratified by the number of masons who were in attendance. The service was attended by CMK Brethren, the DDGM and brethren from around the District.

This was a significant month in masonry for Claude M Kent Lodge and an attestation to the commitment of our brethren to the craft.
