What an honor and privilege it is to be elected Worshipful Master of Tampa Bay Lodge No. 252 F & AM for 2022. As a Mason, I extend my hand towards my Brothers, both Fraternal and otherwise, to offer help any way I can. I am here to serve. It is our duty, as Masons, to be charitable with all our efforts and help to make Good Men Better. This Time Honored Fraternity has withstood all the tests of time. As we continue to build new bonds and strengthen old ones, we do so with open arms and a welcoming smile.

Tampa Bay Lodge is indeed the Friendliest Lodge on Old Tampa Bay, a statement which I and many others would attest to. I invite you all to come in, have a chat, make a new friend and have a good laugh. With the assistance of the Elected and Appointed Officers, we will show you what the Fraternity is all about, an unwavering dedication to serve. During the ensuing year we hope to deliver engaging Masonic Education and  increase our efforts to have a successful 100 Year Anniversary in 2025.

Freemasonry continues to provide a way for men to be a better version of themselves. We are the Brothers, Fathers, Sons and Friends of this community. Arm in arm, we shall persevere through any obstacle the future may present, with integrity and honor. Thank You for the honor of serving as Worshipful Master of Tampa Bay Lodge No 252 and I look forward to seeing you at our Lodge. In the meantime, if you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me.

Humbly & Fraternally,

Rusty B. Valle, Worshipful Master
