Message From The President

State President John Costa

We once again need to keep our thoughts and prayers with all of those affected by the wild fires in Shasta, Redding, and Weed. Again, when you see a firefighter or first responder take a moment and tell them thank you!

Grand Council was held on September 21st and 22nd. I would like to thank all of the Grand Council members for there complete cooperation during the meetings.We were able to get all business complete in a timely manner and a big thank you for all of the members in the audience. The Grand Lodge of California and the Western Foundation are doing well as of now. We are still getting info together from the tax lawyer regarding the building. I have had discussion with a realtor in San Francisco and another one has visited the building. We are actively addressing the issue the delegates requested at the convention.

After Grand Council on Saturday evening we held our Western Foundation 12th Humanitarian, Leadership Awards Gala on Saturday night. I have just three words: Phil, Robert and Vince. These three gentlemen are most deserving gentleman to be honored. Our humanitarian award went to our national recording secretary and president of the Privitera foundation. What a distinct honor to listen to Phil speak of his life, an amazing gentleman. Thank you Phil for everything you have done for the Order and for California.
