This year at the annual Grand Lodge Annual Communication at Grand Traverse Resort & Spa, Detroit Lodge No. 2 F&AM was given the honor of being Lodge of the Year! This award is not the first for our historic Lodge and it is not likely to be the last. Detroit Lodge No. 2 F&AM has a long and storied history of excellence.
The award is not based upon the caliber of men in the Lodge but upon the acumen the Lodge officers demonstrate in proficiency of our Degree work as well as other factors. All told the award reflects the accuracy and efficiency the Lodge works our Craft as well as the spirit the Lodge has for the Craft. The Big Bad Deuce is certainly not coming up short in any of those areas.
While our humble Lodge officers may downplay their involvement and the role each individual played in this achievement, it can certainly be said the guidance and leadership shown by each and as the whole of the Lodge, confidently rests upon their shoulders. To this end congratulations to our Worshipful Master in 2015 and his dedicated and competent line who worked and supported not only him but our Lodge, tirelessly and happily.
This is not just an award, nor just a plaque, it is inspiration for our Lodge going forward. It is fitting and should not be unexpected that as our historic Lodge presses even closer to our 200 year anniversary, we continue to demonstrate we are among the finest Lodges in our state and in the Union.
