From the Grand Master:
Well, another month has gone past, which means that we are now in the summer and dealing with hot temperatures. July started off with a bang with the United States celebrating its 239th birthday on the 4th. By the time this article is published, I will have attended the Executive Board meeting, W. & O. Homes Board meeting, and traveled to Harrison, Arkansas for the Mid-South Conclave. With that being said, the next major thing all Odd Fellows and Rebekahs in Texas should be preparing for is the Sovereign Grand Lodge Session that will be held in Fort Worth, Texas from August 17 thru August 21, 2015, at the Sheraton Hotel & Resort in downtown Fort Worth.
This will be my very first Sovereign Grand Lodge Session to attend since becoming an Odd Fellow in 1991. I'm looking forward to attending it for several reasons. One reason is because it has been since 1978 that the last Sovereign Grand Lodge Session was held in Texas, and I am going as the Grand Master of the state of Texas.
