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 . . .

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.

WM Kevin P. Wardally Adelphic Union Lodge #14
