As we enter the new year the Lodge is preparing the Officer Line for our ancient and traditional degree work. The opening and closing of the Lodge is a paramount tenet in the Craft. It in of itself is the working tool for all the work which follows, for without the tool of the opening and closing of the Lodge the Brethren would be working in chambers without proper order.
