To all our Brothers at Chico-Leland Stanford Lodge No. 111 and brother and sister members of concordant and appendent bodies we wish you all good tidings for the new year. We are looking forward to a productive year at our lodge and we hope to hear from members about what inspires them to be Freemasons. What do YOU want to do in lodge? Light that fire from within and come inspired to dine and socialize at a dinner or speak out and contribute at a stated meeting. Remember there are ONLY 12 nights out of 365 days to come be with YOUR brothers and socialize at Lodge. Today is the first chapter of those 365 pages, how will you write your life book this year?
This year also marks the 300th anniversary of "official" Freemasonry in the world. On St. John the Baptist Day in June of 1717 the United Grand Lodge of England was formed. What a journey it has been. Let's celebrate all that Freemasonry has done in this country and around the world.
