It was a pleasure to see Most Wise Master, George F. Hamilton, the presiding officer of the Mount Olivet Chapter of Rois Croix.
Alpha Lodge will warmly welcome the District Deputy Grand Master for the 15th Masonic District, North, Right Worshipful Brother Richard A. Ellis and his suite of officers and guests at our regular communication on Monday, October 24, 2016, for an Official Visit. The evening will start with dinner in our usual fashion. Will will open on the first degree and will conduct our business until the arrival of the district deputy grand master. We hope you will join us.

Right Worshipful Brother Ellis was raised and is an active member in Charles A. Welch Lodge, which was instituted on March 1, 1872, in the town of Maynard, Massachusetts. Charles A. Welch Lodge now makes its home in Concord, Massachusetts, under the guidance of Worshipful Steven G. Bartlette, Master.
On Nov. 9, 2015, on official visit to Perfection Lodge, our very own Senior Warden, Worshipful Brother Craig A. Rothman, was recognized by the District Deputy Grandmaster of Masons, Right Worshipful Brother Richard A. Ellis with a presentation of a Past Master's Certificate during his official visit to Perfection Lodge.
Wor. Bro. Rothman served as an officer of Perfection and was the Master of Perfection Lodge during the 2015 Masonic year, during which time Alpha Lodge attended quite a number of meetings and was closely involved in assisting in the work of the degrees. It was from these ties of brotherly love that Alpha was joined by Wor. Rothman, who currently sits in the west as the Senior Warden of Alpha Lodge.
This isn't the first Masonic award afforded Brother Rothman, and we are certain it won't be the last. I sincere and hearty congratulations.
