William F. Skewes - 2014
It is with deep humility that I assume the role of
I also do this with a sincere dedication to the
masonic goals of
making good men better men and advancing education.
Over many centuries Freemasonry developed methods of
achieving these goals
through allegorical symbolism.
Much of modern
Freemasonry can trace the development of these goals to
Voltaire, Sir Isaac Newton, Ben Franklin, George
Washington and Thomas Paine - to name a few.
This tradition should
and can be continued.
At our lodge, it is important to involve as
many of the brothers of Idaho Springs Lodge #26
as possible in
pursuing these objectives.
Our methods we will include, among other things,
proper conduct of the work and floor work,
preparation of the
officers to do the former
and the mentoring of our newer members in
as well as the history of Freemasonry.
