From the East:

Brethren:

It has been an honor and a pleasure serving as your Worshipful Master in 2018. I can only hope that I lived up to the rich history that Westhampton has built over the last one hundred years. Many friends have been made during my journey through the chairs at Westhampton, and I want to thank each of you.

Driving while looking in the rear view mirror is never advisable. Although as I look back over the last twelve months, there are some things I would have done differently. I might have chosen different words while dealing with some of the challenges that presented themselves. I might have been more patient and a better listener before offering my opinion.

Masonry teaches us through her beautiful ritual to learn from our experiences. A goal for me going forward will be to emulate the quiet demeanor and confidence that most of you Brethren possess. Thank you for your encouragement, sound advice, and friendship.

Lastly and most importantly, I would like to thank Most Worshipful Alan Adkins. Along with his amazing secretarial and organizational skills, his weekly advice on how to carry myself with proper Masonic etiquette, was indispensable. Thank you Alan for all you invested in me.

God Bless you all and our great Fraternity.

Sincerely and fraternally yours,
William A Rice, Jr., Worshipful Master
