Exalted Ruler's Column

  by Jennifer Cory

Happy New Year to you all! I want to take a moment to reflect back on how amazing 2017 was. I started out as Exalted Ruler with an amazing group of officers and committee members. I'm always in awe at all the hard work that folks do. I had the opportunity to travel to our Ritual Competition in Ukiah, the State Conference in Palm Springs, Grand Lodge in Reno, Nevada, and the Mid-Term Convention in Sacramento. I have met so many amazing people along the way, many of whom I have formed lasting friendships with. I am thankful for all the wonderful members of this lodge who made my 2017 possible. I greatly appreciate the support, encouragement, and the opportunity to vent when need be. I with the help of my House Committee member Nelson Gomes got local Humboldt Cider on tap, which has made a lot of folks happy. Nelson is to be thanked one hundred percent for that accomplishment. So many changes, events, and fun times have taken place in the lodge during the past year. I'm so blessed and thankful for you all. "On this New Year I wish that you have a superb January, a dazzling February, a Peaceful March, an anxiety free April, a sensational May, and Joy that keeps going from June to November, and then round off with an upbeat December."
