“Welcome our 2015 Officers!”
The membership of Scouter’s Lodge #236 is composed of brothers who were either
Scouts themselves, or adult Scouters. All degree work is performed in Class A uniform.
Scouter’s Lodge #236 was granted a Charter on November 17, 2013 at the 226th Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge of Maryland, A.F. & A.M.. Scouter’s Lodge is the first lodge under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Maryland formed strictly for men with backgrounds in the Scouting program.
We had a full house, requiring extra chairs to be set up for guests, at our Open Installation of Officers. And, thanks to the many people who helped we were prepared for the huge turnout we had, everything went beautifully.
I want to thank everyone who helped. Thanks very much to all my brothers that participated and served me with honors on the honor guard. Without you, the installation would never have been as nice as it was. I can’t thank enough our ritual director, W. Bro. Stuart Cordish, for filling in at the last minute as Marshal and delivering the charges to the Wardens, in addition to the charge to the lodge. I truly appreciate it, my brother. Thanks very much to my dear wife, Kay, for helping me with everything. I am grateful for all your encouragement and support. Thanks very much to my son, Ben, for coming early with me to bring in the refreshments and set up. Thanks very much to all of my Officers; you have been wonderful. You came early, helped wherever needed without question, and stayed after to help clean up. I am blessed to have such a great line of officers. Thanks very much to Bro. Dore’ Glazer for wonderful job you did as photographer, professionally setting up the officers the way you do. The pictures look fantastic. I am grateful for the wonderful turnout consisting of Past Masters, brethren, family, and guests. If you were not able to attend, you missed a great moment in time where Scouter’s Lodge #236 was at it’s best. Our founding members are the backbone of our lodge, and what makes us proud to be a part of this great lodge. Finally, thanks to everyone I have forgotten to thank who helped make our installation the memorable evening it was.
On behalf of all my officers and myself; we are honored by the privilege to serve our lodge, Scouter’s Lodge #236.
Please remember to keep our country, our leaders, and our service men and women in your prayers.
“Peace forever dwells where harmony prevails”
GOD BLESS AMERICA
Sincerely and Fraternally
