Grand Master

First off, I would like to thank all the brothers who have worked so hard over the past year. The primary focus of Grand Lodge continues to be seeking ways in which we can improve both now and in future generations.

My year as Grand Master started out with a variety of events all over the state: Stated meeting visits, degrees, table lodges, and lodge rededication ceremonies (the first of which was at Corner Stone Lodge No. 99 in Underwood).

The work you put in towards the Fire Suppression program was outstanding across Minnesota. Even some lodges which hadn’t been overly active in recent years stepped up and raised funds to donate fire suppression tools. As of March 7th, 2024, we had 160 fire suppression units distributed throughout the state. Your collective efforts have resulted in new resources for First Responders, which in one case recently prevented a home from burning to the ground while saving the lives of family pets.

As we look to the future of the Craft in Minnesota, we are committed to moving forward and trying new ideas. I truly appreciate your support and ask that you continue doing the same for each other, regardless of title or position. Thank you again for allowing me to serve and work for the Craft.
