We had the honor and privileged to receive R:. W:. Steve Fortier District Deputy Grand Master for the 19th Masonic District and his District Committeemen. It was good to hear the Grand master’s message and all the very informative committeemen. Thanks to all the Brothers who came out.



A great turnout last night for our Master Mason Degree! We had Brothers from ten different Lodges, five different districts, and two different states. We raised three Brothers. Congratulations to Brs. Lewellen, Hudson and Dellis. A special thanks to RWDDGM Joseph Severino,  R:. W:. Tony “The Irishman” Chavez and W:.
