Exciting news – the Grand Lodge of New Jersey has sent out an updated Edict to coincide with
the New Jersey Executive Order to increase capacity within our Lodge room to 25 members! I know many
of you have been anxious to come out and join us – we simply ask that you please RSVP with me to
ensure we continue to maintain the appropriate capacity at our meetings and take full advantage of
the new limit.
Over this past year, I have been impressed by our member’s cable-tow. I recently read an
education series from the Grand Lodge of Wisconsin – Masonic Study Series from fall 2016 and it
summarized, “Not only does the cable-tow bind the individual Mason to Freemasonry, it also binds
Freemasonry to the individual Mason. The Fraternity is also under obligation to its members to guide,
instruct and train them for the effective service of the Craft and of humanity. Control, obedience, direction
or guidance - these are the meanings of the cable-tow.
Of course, Freemasonry does not control its members by force. It controls us as beauty controls the artist: it
does not drive us, it draws from us. Its morality and beauty shapes us: it shapes our senses, our passions,
our decisions through its moral lessons and beautiful maxims.” The lessons I have learned and experiences
the Lodge has given me since I have joined has truly helped shape me. I also believe that we each help
shape our Lodge each year too. Our ability to give each year continues to be impressive and definitely
did not falter this past year when times got tough. Whether it be Sandy in 2012 or a pandemic in 2020/2021 –
we continue to be a pillar in the community and I know we will for years to come!
