I just returned home from lodge tonight. We had a first degree for Brother Senator Marcus Zavala. I want to welcome Brother Zavala to our lodge. I hope you have a great time in Masonry. Tonight Brother Paul Simonoff sat as master and opened and obligated for his first time in the East. Brother Paul did a very nice job and made our lodge proud. I want to thank Past Masters Sam Ward and Steve Steel for filling in on such shot notice. Tonight is another example of our lodge making me proud to belong to Cornerstone lodge #659 La Habra.
