Meeting and MM Degree held January 6th

Washington Lodge held it's first meeting of the year Thursday night. Talk about starting the year off right? We held minimal business so that we could turn to conferring the Sublime Degree of Master Mason on brother Jesse Jones. The only mistake that we made was to forget to take his picture afterward. We're working to remedy that now. Thank You, to everyone who came out and especially to those of you who participated in the work. This W.M. is proud of and inspired by what took place. It's going to be a great year.

Next meeting we're going to present the schedule and budget for the year. Please mark these key dates and events on your calendars now.

School of Instruction for Washington Lodge - Saturday February 12th 9:00AM

Annual Past Master's Event - Saturday February 26th 9:00AM MM Degree - Dinner TBD

Look for more details to come on the Past Master's Event. Brother Dave Oshefsky and I are working on this event to include a visit from some brother masons from North Carolina. We hope to have them confer the MM degree using their ritual. Now that would be something to come out and see!

Also, your W.M. and S.W. attended the Beja Shrine Installation today. We got a chance to congratulate Past Master Gary Shriver of Washington Lodge on being installed as Potentate. The officer line or Divan of Beja is well represented by brothers of this lodge including our Secretary Charles Clarage and Chaplain Nicholas Brosig and many other brothers. Congratulations to all the officers of Beja Shrine.
