What is Freemasonry ?
FROM THE EAST
Thank you for your confidence and electing me as the 49th Worshipful Master of Cape Coral Lodge No.367. It is a great honor and privilege to be bestowed onto me. I will do my best to sever my home Lodge as your Worshipful Master for the year of 2018.
To our Junior Past Master W∴ Peacock, it was an honor serving the Lodge as Senior Warden during your year in the East. You left some big shoes to fill, and I will continue your legacy of better improving our Lodge. To my Brothers, during the Revolutionary War, it was Ill∴ Bro∴ Benjamin Franklin who said, “We must all hang together or most assuredly we will all hang separately.” My Brothers this is my fifth year within the organization I ask myself, “What does it mean to be a Freemason today?” I look around the world we live today and see us divided by unnecessary nonsense which we have allowed to influence us and rust out the chain of Brotherhood and get in the way of our egos and more especially our Historic purpose. I am asking you as YOUR Worshipful Master to become a pioneer on this renewal as we shall continue paving the path to greatness. Remember it’s not what your Lodge will do for you, but what can you do for your Lodge. Please Brothers contact me for any questions or concerns.

FROM THE WEST
This year, 2018, is going to be special.
First I will like to congratulate all the new elected and appointed Officers. This year the lodge will continue to receive all my support in all matters. We will make all of our goals a reality as we all strive towards making Cape Coral Lodge No. 367 a great Lodge. I’m very excited for 2018. With these principles being reinforced, we will make men better. We will be role models for the youth and we will be the pillars in the community that actually make a difference.
Sincerely and fraternally,
Bro∴ Felix Diaz, Senior Warden
Cape Coral Lodge No. 367 F.&.A.M.
FROM THE SOUTH
Greetings from the South!
As this new year begins, I would like to thank you for the confidence that you have shown in me by electing me as your Junior Warden. I am deeply humbled and honored to be selected to serve our Lodge for this year, and I look forward to an exciting year full of fellowship and brotherly love. I am very anxious for this upcoming year and to all the new opportunities will have to grow as men and masons, for the benefit of our lodge.
This year as your Junior Warden, I will strive to maintain the standards of great work that have been set by my predecessors. Also, I look forward to serving delicious meals and working closely with the different committees to make the Lodge an inviting and comfortable place to be. More especially, I look forward to continuing the fellowship with both our newer and our older brothers but most of all to urge every brother to get involved in Masonic Education. The ritual work and catechism are the keystones to our Masonic life. I would love to see new brothers become catechism instructors because I truly believe that teaching a class can be a rewarding experience.
Brothers our Lodge is going through many changes, and we need you. Please don't sit back and watch it go by. We ask you to come, get involved and to help as long as your cable- tow permits. We'd love to see you back to enjoy the great rewards of Freemasonry. Finally, If I can be of any assistance to any Brother, please do not hesitate and reach out to me. This would be a great year my Brothers and I'm looking forward to it. Fraternally,
R.W John Hardisson, Junior Warden
