So, we haven’t seen you in a while. How are you? Rest assured, you’re not the only brother who has found himself absent from lodge for some time. These are busy times we in which we live, and sometimes it’s hard to find time to visit with your brethren. This is not an uncommon issue with a lot of brothers. Many have been absent over the years and when they do have the time to come back they may be apprehensive or even a little embarrassed because the may not know anyone anymore, they may have forgotten the due guard or signs, forgotten the ritual, lectures, or any number of other reasons. If you are unsure about coming back because you may have gotten a little rusty, fear not! Come on in, we will happily help to get you back up to speed. You can also contact the Master or Secretary directly and let them know of your intentions, they can arrange for a brother take some time to work with you to help to ease you back in. It is always nice to have a brother that has been away come back and attend meetings. So please, come in, sit with your brethren, watch and get reacquainted with your lodge.
You will be warmly received with brotherly love and affection.
Bro. Dave Cornwell
Senior Warden, Potomac Lodge No. 5, 2016
