Freemasonry is dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God.


Brothers, first I would like to thank each of you for allowing me to serve as your Worshipful Master for the 2018 year.  As we continue to make history, thank you for placing me in the archives as the eighth Worshipful Master of Square Work Lodge #596.

As we continue to grow and promote our brand, I know that I have the trust and support of the members of this elite lodge. The highest honor of our lodge was entrusted to me by the craft, I am humbled and eternally grateful.

I would like to thank our Past Masters for their guidance and support in ensuring that the direction and morale continue to grow. They have taught us to be BROTHERS, hold ourselves accountable, always be transparent, and to stay consistent, and to always remember and practice our Masonic tools and virtues.

Senior and Junior Wardens, I am anxious to see what we can accomplish. We will have many challenges to face, but with our strong leadership and our skills sets, we will be a successful team, together we can take this lodge to the next level.  We have a lot to learn as we continue our masonic journey and I am thankful to the craft for electing you both to join me in leading this lodge.

 To the craft, I am only the figure head that you have entrusted to guide and enforce the decisions that we have agreed to do. I will hold each of you accountable as my Brother; as a Master Mason, and I expect you to hold me to the same standard. Let’s continue to improve our community and do what we do best, Good Work, True Work, Square Work!

Sincerely and Humbly,

Leslie B. Walker, Jr.
