As the year 2019 is now a part of our history, I thank each of you for electing this administration as your representatives for the ensuing year. I especially thank you for electing me as Worshipful Master of True Level Lodge (#595). My mantra is...2020 One Dream, One Team! We will never be the True Level of yesterday, but we can be a better True Level for tomorrow.
As the Worshipful Master, I will ensure that the principles of Charity, Brotherly Love, and Truth will be adhered to. Charity, by being in partnership with organizations like Area In Need, and the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia. Brotherly Love, by visiting the sick & shut-in, and assisting those in need. Truth, by being transparent in all of our endeavors. Being heavily involved with the community, with things such as Voter Registration and Health Screenings, are also on the Trestle Board.
Upon being installed as the 9th Worshipful Master, I vowed to uphold this office, support and defend the Book of Laws, Constitution, and General Laws of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Georgia, and to exercise all of the rights and powers afforded me by the bylaws and trust given by this lodge.
In closing, we as Brothers must be resolved to be men of responsibility; leaders of our families; a blessing to our children; live an honorable life; fight for justice; demonstrate love; provide for your family; reconcile with our pasts; live with integrity; be faithful; and to leave a legacy!

Awake, sleeper and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. Therefore, be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:14-16
