| Master's Message —
As we look toward 2019, I want to congratulate WB Nelson Saavedra on moving our Lodge forward. I also congratulate the newly installed officers. I am pleased to welcome so many new Brothers to their duties.
Our key initiatives this year will be; Respect, Masonic Light and Education, Masonic Charity and Fundraising.
I look forward to working hard to advance Matawan Lodge #192 and our wonderful Craft. I request and welcome every Brother’s recommendations to help me in making 2019 a pivotal year. To that end, I saw this poem and was reminded of my obligations. I hope it finds you well!

A Mason's hand is a hand that helps,
That lifts the fallen one,
That comes, in need, with a kindly deed
To him whose strength is gone.
A Mason's heart is a heart that loves
The best that is good and true
He stands the friend, his best to lend,
Under his banner blue.
A Mason's eye is an eye that smiles
And his a cheering voice;
He spreads the light, dispels the night
And makes the world rejoice.
Over the earth in stranger lands,
Where distant peoples dwell,
The eye, the grip, the life, the lip,
Of love unchanging tell.
