Worshipful Master

Dear Past Masters and Brothers of Adelphic Union Lodge #14, It is with great honor and humility that I accept this sacred trust that you have so earnestly given to me, to be Worshipful Master and lead our historic Lodge in 2011 for its 148th year of Masonry. I know that working with each of you, in this great body, we will achieve all of the things we set our minds to accomplish.

KEVIN P. WARDALLY . . .

Freemasonry, above all else, is a spiritual society with unlimited opportunities for service, personal improvement and enjoyment. The Craft is so broad in its work and scope, you are bound to find an aspect that appeals to you. As Master, I will work to help each of you grow and reap the benefits of the Craft. The Master of a Lodge is not only its leader but its greatest SERVANT. As such, I shall endeavor to actually serve; not for the sake of glory and honor for myself, but, for my Lodge and Brethren - first, last and always.

am truly honored, grateful and mindful of the enormous responsibility before me. I promise you now, to do my best, give you all I have as a resource, a shoulder when necessary, a fist when prudent and your brother always.

Let the world see how Masons love one another is our mantra for 2011 and I know AUL#14 will live up to it. Fraternally yours,

WM Kevin P. Wardally Adelphic Union Lodge #14

As I stand in leadership of the Lodge that meant so much to my grandfather, who was raised in AUL#14 in 1951, I
