It is an honor and a privilege to be elected to be Master of Binghamton No. 177.
I will try to do the best job I can;
and I will need all Brothers to help me.
Together we can make Binghamton No. 177 F. & A.M, BECOME the strongest lodge in the district.
If you know of a man that is interested in Masonry and if you think he is worthy, have him fill out a petition. Then submit it to our Secretary W. Bro. Alonzo LaBarr, with the correct fee.
If you know of a Bro. in need of Masonic aid, or sympathy, please contact either myself or one of our wardens.
And remember my Brothers, Masonry is not about rings & things;
It is about making good men better and bringing us closer to the Great Architect of the universe, as our Forefathers did before us.
May the God of your understanding bless you with good health, prosperity and long lives. God Bless the United States of America; and all Free Masons wherever they live.
R.W. Bro. Edward Wells
Master Binghamton Lodge #177 F&AM
