It was a great evening of Holiday Cheer at Gulf Beach Lodge last night. The brothers, clad in festive attire, enjoyed a pizza party prior to the meeting and upon entry to the Lodge room were provided candy canes and ‘snowballs’ which were later lobbed (the snowballs, not the candy canes) at the Master (all in good fun). Here are some things that were accomplished:
** The Junior Warden, Br∴ Bobby Burkett, gave his year end meal financial report and received a resounding applause for a great job
** The Senior Warden, Br∴ Joe Sosa presented the 2023 Budget
** The Secretary, W∴ David Neville, gave a moving year end report and thanked the brothers for the support over the past 3 years
** R∴W∴ Howard Knapp reported that many PR articles have been running in the local papers
** The craft donated $200 to the Masonic Home ‘Corky’s Cupboard’ initiative.
** The craft advanced $400 to the OES for Installation refreshments on January 7th
