Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

To my Brothers, families and friends of Freemasonry …

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
Holiday Greetings to you and those you love!  This is always a time of great personal excitement and the anticipation of fun, happiness and joy we always have during this season of the year.
At Christmas we commemorate God’s love for us in the divine gift of His precious Son. We in turn show our appreciation in our benevolence, kindness and compassion, extolling the positive virtues taught by our fraternity. Beyond the celebrations and gift giving that is our tradition, let us remember those who are less fortunate and need our help and support throughout the year and especially at Christmas and the Holiday Season.
The annual PMANJ / Plaridel Lodge Christmas Party was another success this year. I would like to thank RW Drew Jardine – President PMANJ for hosting our event at Cincinnati Lodge Lodge #3. To the brethren who shared prices for the kids games. To Kuyang’s and Ateng’s for the food. To RW Phil Caliolio our emcee. To RW Ross Rosales for our sounds systems. Lastly Plaridel Lodge very own Santa Claus Bro. John Ocampo thank you very much.
Wishing you and your family a Blessed and Peaceful Holiday Season. We look forward to the New Year with hope, enthusiasm and the conviction that the Great Architect of the Universe will continue to guide and protect us in all our endeavors. Happy Christmas and Seasons Greetings.
Fraternally yours,
Ernest Quisumbing
Worshipful Master
