Thank you to all who attended our Lodge Pancake Breakfast July 24! We had about 40 in attendance and it was a beautiful morning. Now that fall is here it means it's time to get back to work. I expect our proficient Entered Apprentices will be eager to be passed. Let us prepare ourselves for our labors ahead.
The Fall Equinox, arriving on Wednesday September 22nd, marks the first day of autumn and where the sun crosses the celestial equator from north to south. This is a time of transition where everything slows down, the leaves are changing and so are you! It's a time to shed what we no longer need.
Autumn means a harvest energy and reminds me to be grateful for all the abundance in life. Let us harvest the fruits of our labors and intentions that we have sewn all year and be grateful as we transition towards the colder months to come. *Interesting historical note: The French monarchy was abolished on September 21st, 1792 and the First French Republic was established the next day (1st day of Fall Equinox) on September 22nd, 1792.
I'm looking forward to seeing all the Brothers in Lodge! I wonder what fall dishes Brother Michael has on the menu? Here's to pumpkin spice and all things nice.
