It is an honor to address you from the East as Master. I am excited for the year we have in front of us. Let me start off by thanking our newest Past Master Wor. Brother John Gates for all his labor last year. Though there were some challenges, he did a wonderful job. In the coming year we have a lot of wonderful events in the works in addition to our usual labors. I am sure with your help we will rise to each occasion and make them successful.

I shall endeavor to make this year fun, educational and enriching for ourselves, families and the community. On that note, I would like to involve the families more so please encourage them to come for the dinners. We can set a family price for the meal. Also, any Ashlar-Aspetuck Brother over 75 or a 50yr Mason shall eat for free!

I pray that all of us and our families have a happy and healthy year. So mote it be

Most Sincerely and Respectfully,

Scott David Shilinsky

Worshipful Master

Be a Mason in your actions as well as your words. Be the light!
