Introduction

The MWSA District #108 Leadership Team hopes that these bimonthly newsletters will help keep you up-to-date on what is happening within our great District. We are here to help support every Lodge within District #108. Through these newsletters, we hope to keep everyone in the loop as far as upcoming events, as well as provide a little bit of Masonic education or a topic for thought in each one.

MWSA January 2019 Meeting

Brothers,


The next MWSA meeting for District 108 will be held on Wednesday, January 9th at Brookshire Lodge (819 Purdy, Brookshire, TX). The District leadership is working hard to provide an enriching educational program for the meeting, as well as a presentation on our long-term goals as a District.


The MWSA meetings are open to all Master Masons, so please make an effort to attend. The MWSA is here as a support for the Lodges in District 108, but it cannot function without participation from everybody. The organization will not function with just one or two people putting in all of the effort to support the District. If you would like, there will be opportunities for Master Masons from any lodge to jump in and help with education, communications, and other leadership goals.

Sugar Land Lodge Creative Coastal Committee January Event

Brothers, if you're looking for an enjoyable weekend and would like to spend some time with your Brothers, please consider signing up for Sugar Land Lodge's Creative Coastal Committee January Event.
