From the South This past month I had the honor, privilege, and pleasure of conferring my first Entered Apprentice degree in Freemasonry here at Fort Myers Beach Lodge. It was truly a landmark night in my Masonic career, right up there with my own initiation and then raising as a Master Mason. I feel a unique bond with our two newly obligated Brothers, Steven Anderson and Josiah Mendez, having personally introduced them to our honorable Fraternity. Of course, this was only possible with the aid of my fellow Brothers and our incredible FMB362 degree team that our current Master, along with Past Masters from recent years, have so well prepared for today’s work. I thank most especially our Worshipful Master, Bro. Lopez, Right Worshipful Bro. Lanham, and our Senior Deacon Bro. Kenny, who all spent much of their own time preparing me for the ceremony. It was a night I will never forget, and I look forward to more degree work in the coming year. Joshua Calero - Junior Warden Grand Master of Masons in Florida official visit to district 28 & 29 JAMES W. FORD September 20th, 2014 dinner social at the fort Myers beach shrine club, followed by a tiled Grand Visitation meeting at Fort Myers Beach Masonic Lodge #362. registration at beach shrine club 5pm District 29 has a new DDGM Brethren, I thank you all for your great wishes and congratulations, I look forward to this year, serving as your DDGM, Ever since I've was appointed to DDGM a few months back, I have been doing some extra research and studying a little......Funny how new responsibilities will do that to you in this exclusive club, I guess it's part of that whole "Light" thing we keep hearing about. A brother recently died in a motorcycle accident and though we were not great friends, we were great acquaintances, I would see him at FASMC events in Cocoa Beach and he was a very worthy motorcycle competitor at FSA events, he was young, ......too young to be already gone, but there it was, he had gotten the call. so I started thinking about memorial services, to me...A memorial service is the last thing we CAN DO for a brother, and a great opportunity to show support to his family, and really show the family what we are made of, the strength of our organization and more importantly the strength of our obligation. Think of it, it's the last thing we can do for a brother...........for after that, though we may continue to help his widow & family....we can help him no more. If you don't want to be part of the service, that's okay but please ............ attend if you can. I remember going to a memorial service for a brother I had not even met, but he was well known by brothers I knew well, I had it off from work and wanted to show support. I was at the reception afterwards and found myself talking with some of the family members and was asked how I knew their dad, I proceeded to say that I had not met him, but I was there because he was my brother. Their expressions started out as wonder & amazement then changed to thanks and gratitude. It was something. On another note, This year I would like to put a challenge to all the lodges out there to visit all the other lodges in our district during my Official District Visits, we'll have a contest if you will. The top 30 brothers who visit the most lodges during my official visits....... I will take out to dinner... on me. ALSO: the lodge with the most lodges visited with the most brothers in attendance during my official visits will also get to come too,.....you have been challenged! ....Prepare yourselves for a great year brothers! So Mote it Be! Bobby Mimmo DDGM
