Gourgas Chapter Rose Croix

2022-2023 Annual Report

To the Illustrious Deputy, Illustrious Deputy Representative, Illustrious Active, Illustrious Active Emeritus,
Illustrious Brothers, fellow Presiding Officers, Officers of the Gourgas Chapter of Rose Croix of Heredom,
and Knights of the East and West, all.

I am humbled and honored to have the privilege to serve our Valley. I would have never imagined that I
would have the opportunity of being elected Most Wise Master of Gourgas Chapter of Rose Croix of
Heredom. I would like to thank Illustrious Brother Joe Sanisteban and Illustrious Brother Frank Winans
for my introduction to Scottish Rite Masonry.

We are one of the stronger Valleys in the state and Northern Masonic Jurisdiction. It is all because of
you! Your participation in many aspects that make up our Valley is something that is always needed.
Your willingness to challenge yourself in various aspects of Masonry has been important to our Valley
and members. I ask that you continue to renew your commitment to yourself and Scottish Rite Masonry
this year and beyond. Without our brothers, we would not be the Premier Valley that we are.

To the officers of Gourgas Chapter. I am proud of the work that you do not only here but also
throughout our craft. We have a multitalented line of officers. The work you put in from directing
degrees, committees, acting, pitching in wherever needed, is how we will continue to excel. Once again,
thank you.

To the office staff- Dave Koss, Michael Kuniej, and Debbie Pasiewicz. I thank you for all your time,
dedication, hard work, patience, guidance, and creativity to keep our members, officers, and Board of
Directors engaged.

Lastly my brethren, thank you for all that you do. Continue to stay true to our tenets of Freemasonry, brotherly love, relief, and truth.
