Yesterday was a perfect day!
We had our JRL family picnic and everyone had a great time. For those who could not attend, we missed you; and you missed a wonderful gathering of friends and brothers, sisters and children, family and friends. We had so much food and drinks, feeding off our hunger for fellowship and quenching our thirst for sharing time, talents and treasures. There were no strangers, only friends we have not met.
I have never seen anybody work as hard as our two Wardens – SW Iggy and JW Tom. They took care of everything to make sure everything moved smoothly before, during and after the picnic. They set the example by doing that encouraged everyone to do the same. It gave meaning to the saying, “Many hands make light work”. They even ordered the rain to fall so slightly so we could end the picnic sooner than later! But you know what, even in the rain, the some hardy souls carried on…
This letter is not complete without acknowledging with gratitude and mentioning the people who gave life to the party.
To the brothers and sisters who brought delicious food and drinks – thanks for the calories!
to the brothers from other Lodges who joined our fellowship – do join us again.(Bro. Sec pls have them sign the dotted line)
to WB Boy Iriberri for his irresistible charm and inexhaustible talent – he provided spontaneous hilarity that popped the buttons from your breaches while spicing them with serious challenges to walk the walk as Masons!
to Bros. Pete and Willie for their entertaining ballads and love songs.
to VW Mon and Bro. Dem who, like the celebrated auctioneers, wrote pledges in support of the InterLodge Golf Outing.
to RW Carlito who – like the photo journalist that he is – quietly took pictures for “You’re on Candid Camera”. Stand by!

to WB Luis for his words of encouragement to move forward with fortitude and determination.
to our loved ones, wives, significant others, our families – who give inspiration and encouragement as we strive to be better.
to the many un-named brothers and sisters who added their portion to make this day an unforgettable moment…THANK YOU!
To all of you, have a restful summer. Enjoy the break and let us prepare for that which is to come! To quote WB Boy, “Never abandon your mother Lodge. It is your family!” Feel free to share your thoughts.
