Independence Day, July 4th will soon be upon us. In addition to the celebratory fireworks, it gives us all time to ponder about our beloved country. As Masons, we are proud that the Government of our country is really based on Masonic principles, especially one person, one vote. July 4th is truly more than a day for fireworks and barbecues, but a day for all of us to be Proud Americans.
I am proud and pleased to wish all our brethren and their family’s a hearty Happy Independence Day. My lovely wife Carla, Deputy Grand Master RW Charles Catapano and his charming lady Donna Brower, as well as the entire elected and appointed members of the Grand Line and their ladies, and all the District Deputies and Staff Officers and their ladies, join me in this greeting.
In addition, let us implore the Great Architect of the Universe to protect all the members of our Armed Forces as they are protecting us, wherever in the world they may be serving. May He bring them back home and out of harm’s way to their families and friends!
Sincerely and fraternally
Jeffrey M. Williamson
