DEDICATION
 
To my home lodge, Athens #961, thank you for your support as I ride this train down the tracks.
To James and Barbara Curtis, thank you for all the advice, help, and support you have given.
To Past Grand Master John Linden, thank you for starting me on this journey by giving me my first appointment in Grand Lodge.
To Past Grand Masters George Richards and Frank Ford, thank you for all of your advice and help.
To all other Past Grand Masters, you have all pledged your support of me as I go on this journey.  I appreciate all your advice, guidance, and help.
To Pat Hollingsworth, thank you for entrusting me with Derrell's regalia.  I will humbly wear it with pride, in honor of Derrell.  This gift means more than you will ever know. 
 
To my Assembly President Loretta:
We have worked well together since being elected Wardens.  We share the same goals and have been able to discuss ideas and come to a decision that is agreed upon by both of us.  This year I pledge my continued support and look forward to seeing where our journey will take us.

ODD FELLOW VALEDICTION
 
I AM AN ODD FELLOW:
 
I believe in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man; I believe in Friendship, Love and Truth as basic guides to the ultimate destiny of all mankind; I believe my home, my church or temple, my lodge and my community deserve my best work, my modest pride, my earnest faith and my deepest loyalty, as I perform my duty "to visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan" and as I work with others to build a better world, because in spirit and in truth, I am and must always be, grateful to my Creator, faithful to my country and fraternal to my fellow-man;
 
I AM AN ODD FELLOW!
