From The East


“As the sun rises in the East…”

Greetings Brothers

Thank all who were involved in our recent degrees and all who attended, especially our D.D.G.M., R⸫W⸫ Freddie Valasco! Without the tremendous support of the officers and brothers they would not have been as successful as we were.  The meals prepared by our Junior Warden, Darrell Cleveland, have been amazing!  My thanks to him as well as to his hard working staff.

I am asking every brother who has not already done so to consider how they would like to close out this year.  I have said in the past that if you have an idea, event, fundraiser, etc., do not hesitate to bring it before the Lodge.  Alternatively, maybe you are looking to attend more Lodge meetings, start your path as a lodge officer, or be an active degree team member.  There are many ways a brother can help the Lodge, themselves and other brothers.  Ultimately it is each our responsibility to address our own goals, identify ways to improve an help the Lodge be successful.

As a reminder we will be looking for 2019 officer nominations.  I look forward to seeing you in lodge!

Lastly to all my brothers, thank you for your service and support!


W⸫ Theodore Burke
Worshipful Master

  1. I want to give a special thank you to the degree teams that have done such a wonderful job this year. Your dedication and your wanting to learn and wanting to improve is what keeps this fraternity alive and our Lodge alive. A big thank you to all the other Brothers from the Albert J. Russell Lodge for coming out and helping when you need you and for all the lectures and charges as well. It takes team work and we should all be proud of what we accomplish here at Duval Lodge 159 and at the other Lodges as well. Worshipful Master Ted your year is almost over and you have done a fantastic job this year. Thank you to all of the officers you all have done a tremendous job and I know that the next year is going to be as great as this. Look forward to 2019. Blessing to all…
