From the Secretary's Desk Greetings from your Secretary, From the East Greetings Brothers. I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving and I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Merry Christmas my Brothers. Congratulations to our new Master Masons; Tony D'Olivera & Frank Sherkus Your journey is just beginning. We have a few that have not paid their 2015 dues. They are past due on the 27th of December and are subject to suspension. Don't allow that to happen. Please take the notice off the icebox from under the magnet an get'em in! We will be voting on a candidate to receive the three degrees in our fraternity at the second meeting in December Mr. Chance A Wunderlich, his uncle is a member of the lodge and Chance comes from five generations of Masons. He lives in Ft. Myers. My year in the East has been very rewarding and it has been a distinct honor and privilege to serve as master of this lodge. When I began my masonic journey I never dreamt I would make it to the East but I am happy I was able to accomplish this and I hope I have met your expectations of what a master of the lodge should be. Our year has been a success as we have raised 9 new brothers into our lodge and raised 3 more brothers for other lodges in our district. I am proud to be a member of this fraternity and especially a member here at Fort Myers Beach lodge. I wouldn’t have had a successful year without the help of all the lodge officers and the members of the lodge standing behind me and us all wanting to go in the same direction. I thank all my brothers for their support and belief in me during my year in the East. This is truly an experience that has helped me grow and an experience that I will always treasure. The charity of the month of November is the Sheriff's Youth Ranch. Members are ured to supports our monthly charity as well. Our meeting on 12/3 will be our annual election of officers and our regular business meeting. On 12/10 we will have an officers meeting for all current and newly elected and appointed officers. Our meeting on 12-17 will be a time for me to wrap up my year in the East. A certificate was presented to the Grand Master making him a member of our lodge as well an honorary Sherriff's Deputy. Congratulations to Bart Howard, Matt Boner and Thomas Webber our newest perpetual members. The Grand Master’s official visit to our district was held on November 20th. We had a good representation of brothers and ladies there to show the strength of our lodge. The Grand Master was very appreciative of being made an honorary perpetual member of our lodge. Fred Wright - Secretary Thank You for all your continued support through everything, you have been a strong influence on my progress as well as many other GREAT Brothers that I have met thus far. I so look forward to the continuance of my journey along with the strengthening of our bond through our Fraternity. Thank You again for who you are! - Frank Sherkus - Raised MM 11/19/15 We can always use more catechism instructors and any brother interested in learning the lodge officers’ positions, please come to lodge on the off Thursdays as we have practices, catechism and officers meetings on those nights. Fraternally, Ken Compton - Worshipful Master

From the West What a year it has been Bothers! I would like to thank and congratulate Worshipful Ken Compton on such a successful year in the East for 2015. He has truly lived up to and exceeded the standards of our Past Masters here at Fort Myers Beach Lodge. I pity whoever must live up to such a high standard as he has set for us next year! It will truly be a challenge for that poor soul to confer so many outstanding degrees, conduct such beneficial officer’s meetings and degree practices, all the while thoroughly enjoying ourselves as we have done so this year. Without a doubt in my mind, Ken has earned the title of Past Master, and he shall wear his PM apron with a feeling of pleasure, honor, and accomplishment. Might I also add that Ken has been to the Lodge for at least 50 of the 52 Thursday nights of the yearregardless of if it was a Lodge night or not- in order to teach catechism to new Brothers, to stay in contact with the Brethren, and to quite simply take care of business. If that doesn’t prove that he has remained patient, dedicated, and hard working throughout 2015, I don’t know what does. I must say that his officer’s line was a great success as well. Ritual work has never looked better, attendance is great, and everyone has lived up to the honor and responsibility of his chair. I will also add that dinner has never been more tasty, hearty, and exquisite (much better than that buffoon who cooked last year) here at Fort Myers Beach Lodge. We have certainly been spoiled by our JW, MJ Kenny. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Congratulations Worshipful Ken, and Brethren all. See you next year!
