My Brothers,

I want to thank all of you for the support you have given me during the trying times of the last few months. I have had some big shoes to step into and it has been rough a few times. With your continued support, I will do my best to be worthy of the confidence you have placed in me to be your new General Secretary.  Feel free to come by my office anytime if you have a question, need or just want to chat.
First off, please get your reservations in to the Secretary’s Office TODAY for the Grand Master’s Reception and Festive Board on August 12. This will be a very special catered affair and we need to get an accurate count as soon as possible. Check the flyer on page 7 for details and we’ll see you there.
Now to the big request. We are into August, and 140 Brothers have still not paid their dues for 2014. These were due and payable on Jan 1, and it puts a stain on the finances and ability of the Bodies to pay our bills when so much money is outstanding. If you haven’t yet paid your dues, please contact the Secretary’s Office immediately and do so. If you are in financial need or distress, contact me and we can work something out. Don’t risk being suspended by doing nothing. We’re here to help. Thank you.

Fraternally,   Hank Vlcek,  General Secretary
