From the Secretaries Table (April, 2012)

Brethren all,

The year has begun with a rousing start, beginning with our Installation in January, our Sweethearts dinner in February, and our March celebration of Angela’s Birthday, the Installation of our Monterey Club Officers for 2012 and 50 year honors for Brothers John Lew and Dick Priest.
April will begin our Spring Reunion and welcome several new Brothers to the San Jose Valley.  I hope that many of you will attend the various degrees and support the quality ritual work our Officers are demonstrating.
Bros. Jim Arnold, Dick Meyers and myself attended the 2012 Leadership conference in San Diego and brought back some great ideas for us to try.  In addition, Admiral Sizemore congratulated us on the work we are attempting with the Senior Member Program.
I read a quotation from Mark Twain last evening that I would like to share:
“I like a thin book because it will steady a table,
A leather volume because it will strop a razor,
And a heavy book because it can be thrown at a cat.”
