Our new Worshipful Master, David Bryant, had this to say on our quarterly newsletter, Central Light:

To my brothers of Central Lodge #1. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the craft for electing me as your Worshipful Master for the year 2012.

I do hereby, solemnly and sincerely, promise and swear that I will represent each and every one of you to the best of my ability during my tenure as Master of Central Lodge #1. The Lodge will need everyone in order to prosper. My promise is leadership and guidance, but success does not come from me…it comes from us, and it is FOR US!!

My brothers, my mentor once told me that Masonry was for me, and that I would get out of it, whatever I put into it! That bit of advice has resonated in me throughout my Masonic life…and so I say to you, my brothers…Masonry is also ―for you‖ come get all the light you desire, and never let anyone, or anything steer you away from what is rightfully yours! Let’s have a great year and make Central Lodge #1…THE Lodge of the District, and one to be emulated by the entire Jurisdiction. See you the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each and every month this year!

Fraternally Yours!

Congratulations to Bro. Brian Sanchez, Phylaxis Society’s newly appointed Indiana Council Representative!   Leave a comment

Newly appointed Associate Editor for The Phylaxis magazine and Phylaxis Society Council Representative for Indiana, Bro. Brian Sanchez, standing with PM John Aaron and PM Brian Hogan.

Congratulations to our own Bro. Brian Sanchez, Indiana’s newly appointed Rep. for the Phylaxis Society! The Phylaxis Society is an international organization of Prince Hall Freemasons dedicated to studying the life of Prince Hall, and researching the history of Prince Hall Freemasonry. It was designed to educate Masons about Prince Hall Freemasonry.

Bro. Sanchez became involved with Phylaxis after being introduced to it by South Carolina’s Rep., Bro. Bruce Benjamin. Upon becoming a member, Sanchez quickly presented to Phylaxis President and Council of Representatives President, on how the Phylaxis Society can improve its image, brand identity, and extend its reach among the brethren. This led to his appointment as the Society’s first Social Media Administrator. His dedication to promoting not just the Phylaxis Society, but Prince Hall Masonry in general eventually led to his appointment as Editor of the Phylaxis Council of Representatives newsletter, Associate Editor of The Phylaxis magazine, and most recently as the official Phylaxis Council Representative for the State of Indiana.

As Indiana’s newly appointed Council Rep., Sanchez hopes to not only spread further light in Masonry within Central Lodge, Central District , and throughout our jurisdiction, but hopes to attract more bros. into the Society. Bro. Brian Sanchez is another example of proactive brothers making a difference for the benefit of the craft, and we are proud to call him a brother of Central Lodge #1!
