Worshipful Master 2019

Richard J. Barone

The Masters Message - March 2019



     We have successfully completed our Official Visit and I am happy to report that we received “Good” marks from the DDGM and DRI.  Again, I want to thank all the brothers who participated. I especially want to thank the district for the support every lodge showed us.  Now that we have completed the first of our requirements we can look forward to the opportunity to experience presentations, hold degrees for new brethren, enjoy our upcoming Craftsmen club events, and of course Grand Lodge. 

    This year our own MW John Ryan is running for Grand Secretary and during Grand Lodge, we will be showing the state what Livingston #11 is all about by hosting an amazing collation room.  I ask that all the brothers who can attend to please do so.  This will be a year you don’t want to miss!  Special thanks to our SW Mike Sciame for all the hard work he has put in thus far.

    It’s also time for us to build off our momentum.  We had a very successful Blood Drive.  I want to send out special thanks to our SD for all his hard work...thank you Phil.  Sitting in the East has its share of work and responsibilities. If not for the help I receive from all the brothers it would be overwhelming and unmanageable. So once again thank you all. 

    At our next meeting I will be giving a presentation.  I hope to impart light to the brethren with interesting information regarding our country and its Masonic founding.  I hope you all will attend.


Fraternally yours,

WM Richard J. Barone
