FROM THE EAST:
Lodge News – December 2022
Worshipful Master’s Message
Civil War Lodge of Research No.1865 A.F. & A.M.
What a year this has been. It seems just yesterday that, I was
getting ready to move into the East. Being the Worshipful Master
of the Civil War Lodge of Research, has been one of the most
enjoyable times I have had in Masonry. Which is directly attributed
to the meetings that we have and social aspect of our Lodge.
I have heard a Past Master say the Civil War Lodge of Research
meetings, are like a nice family reunion. We get to come and see
friends, who we might not be able to see on a regular basis.
Especially for those who bring their family with them for our
meeting weekends. I like to think, that statement really does seem
to apply to our great Lodge.
I will miss my time sitting in the East, but I look forward to the
many great years that are ahead. I want to thank the officers of the
Civil War Lodge of Research for their support this year. I now look
forward to supporting the Lodge in what capacity, I need in the

Incoming Master’s Message
I first want to thank all the members of the Civil War Lodge of
Research No. 1865 for their continued support as I make my
journey through the chairs and to the East. I have received nothing
but kind words, graceful nudges in the right direction, and always
an open hand willing to help. It means the world to me this Lodge
is entrusting itself to my hands for the 2023 term…. even though my
Maryland ritual comes out from time to time.
I look forward to seeing you all at our stated communication in
Williamsburg, on Dec 3rd. Please see the itinerary for the weekend
in the Trestleboard or on the website for all the events, times, and
lodging details. If you are planning on attending, please RSVP to
the meeting, Fri Dinner, Sat Lunch, and Sat Dinner by text or email
to: 410-241-4100 or Hornet350@yahoo.com.
Sincerely & Fraternally,
Andrew Wilson Senior Warden
Everyone should be getting the 2023 Dues Cards with their new
member number on them (They were on the roster emailed out
also). You will need this number if you wish to sign in to the
Virginia Grand Lodge Grand View. The 1865-0xxx numbers will
only be for internal use. Your 2023 Dues are due to be mailed to
me by the end of the year if you do not want to be in arrears.
Congratulations to our own MW James Winfield Golladay, Jr.,
on his wonderful year as Grand Master of Masons in the
Commonwealth of Virginia.
