AS THE SUN RISES IN THE EAST……………
Greetings my Brethren,
It is my sincere hope that you all had a Happy Holidays!
What a journey it has been! It’s been a really tough year, but productive and we learned a lot. I sincerely hope that I have made you all proud, and that I have served you and this lodge well.
I want to thank you for what has been a truly great year, a 12-month journey I’m really proud of, and one that couldn’t have happened without your support.
Thank you again for this year; for the fellowship, for the hard work and dedication, for the new ideas that you all have comfortable enough to share with me, for correcting me when I was wrong and made mistakes, for believing in me, for being my friends, my brethren, and my lodge.
We should always remember, we will enjoy the next journey better if we meet, talk, share, smile and laugh together. Let’s make 2018 easier but less stressful, have more laughter, have more fellowship and have more brotherly love.
May the Blessing of Heaven rest upon us and all regular Masons!
Bro. Charlie C. Foronda
2017 Worshipful Master
Suisun Lodge No. 55
Installation of Officers

Starts at 2:00 pm
FOR THE GOOD OF THE LODGE……..
As we start the new year we find ourselves with a small dilemma. As most of you are aware that in November we nominated Bro. Ritchie Oblanca to be our next Worshipful Master. Bro. Ritchie graciously accepted the nomination. We departed that evening looking forward to a good year at the hands of another capable brother.
But we are sad to report that Bro. Ritchie has notified the Lodge that a rescheduling of his work hours has precluded his ability to fulfill his wishes of being Master of Suisun Lodge for the year 2018.
We are now faced with nominating another brother as Worshipful Master or continue with the very adept and responsible WM Charlie Foronda. This is not the first time Suisun Lodge has faced this situation. On January 9th, our stated meeting, we will decide who will be our next Worshipful Master. At this meeting we will nominate a Brother who we feel can best represent our Lodge in the coming year. Several Past Masters have also volunteered to step to the plate as well. So we may have several choices to pick from.
It is therefore important for all to mark your calendar for this important meeting. Show up, voice your opinion, vote, and chose your next Worshipful Master for 2018.

THIRD DEGREE ANNIVERSERY
WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER
Take your lodge number and double it. Add 5; multiply by 50, add your age (no cheating),
add the number of days in the year (for you slow thinkers it is 365), subtract 615. The
last two numbers of the result is your age and the others are your lodge number.
Joke of the Month
What do you do when you see a spaceman?
You park your car in it! Dah!
