Greetings Brethren and guests to Ephrata Lodge No. 665's website. What an amazing year! One month left as Master of the Lodge. It has been wonderful serving as Master of the lodge. A NASA expert, a four star General, six scholarships presented, 3rd place float in the largest Pennsylvania street parade, a Chief of Police, numerous men made Masons, and so much more. It has been an honor serving in such a rewarding position. Thank you to all who have made it happen as it was not all my doing. Thank you Brethren of Ephrata Lodge.
We wrapped up October with our annual Fall Banquet where we had over 70 people attend. The food was delicious and Our November stated meeting was simply fantastic. In honor of Veteran's Day, we had a wonderful guest speaker in the form of Four star General Tom Hobbins, who delivered a heart felt and inspiring message to all present, followed by presenting all Veterans with a token of appreciation for their service. December is our Open Installation of officers, where Jeff Yorty will be installed as our new Master, effective on Saint John's day next. We also have our ladies night planned for December 18th at Mount Hope where we will enjoy dinner and two interactive holiday stories. If interested in attending, please RSVP with me immediatly as seating is limited. Last, no degree work for December, but petitions came in last month so come out in January for our degree night(s) if you can. Degree nights are usually held the Thursday after our stated meetings and sometimes the Tuesday after our stated meetings. We have an excellent ritual team that performs fantastic work. Jeff has an exciting year set for us and I look forward to his programs and events. Please check out the calendar for upcoming dates and times.

Brethren, we only have 2 blood drives left this year. If you are able to donate blood, please select one of the dates below so that I may contact you for a time to register. Regarding the "Change For the Troops" program, we have over $700,000 in donations simply from your pocket change. Please continue to be generous with your spare change that goes to this great cause. The basket to make any donations will always be on the table right outside the lodge room near the Tyler as you enter.
We also are busy with several petitions coming in this year. That means we are busy with our "work". I invite all our members and any Master Masons to come out and see the excellent degree work we enjoy so much delivering and witnessing new brethren become members of Ephrata Lodge. If you haven't seen a degree in a while, I highly encourage you to come out to support the lodge and the new brother. The ritual work our great fraternity performs has such wonderful meanings behind it and if taken to heart will truly change how you live your lives. So come out and enjoy the brotherhood. See you at the next event.
