I am very pleased that the noble Brothers of Sequin-Level Lodge #140 have elected me to be their Senior Warden for the year 2021. I am looking forward to serving and ensuring that none shall leave dissatisfied, harmony being the strength and support of all societies, but more especially of ours.
The year of 2020 was a very challenging year due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Many of us would like to forget about the isolation and sanctions that were set upon us all. We held Stated Communications Zoom meetings when we could not meet in person. Later, when some of us could attend, we continued to televise our meetings for those Brothers who wanted to attend, but did not feel safe to do so in person. Furthermore, we are one of very few Lodges in Connecticut that were and are now certified to serve food at our meetings and events. Sequin-Level #140 proved again that it is still remains the greatest show on earth!
As our restrictions gradually decline, my focus will be on planning Table Lodge and other events that will rival those of the past. Our attendance at Blue Lodge Council Meetings will vastly improve; furthermore, communications to the Craft by social media, email and even US Mail will be optimal resulting in greater attendance at meals, meetings and events. I will assist our Worshipful Master in setting up degree teams and rehearsals so that our worthy candidates will have the finest Masonic experience possible. Our Brothers in the Pipeline will be proficient and will be motivated to help out at our many events, even after their service requirements have been fulfilled.
Thank you all so much for this opportunity to serve again as Senior Warden!
I wish you all the happiest and warmest greetings for this New Year!
– Brother Jon D. Faasen, Senior Warden 2021
