We had another wonderful evening at Lodge this month. We passed Brother Jason Cummins to the Degree of Fellow Craft. Senior Deacon, Evan Fisher did another masterful job with the Middle Chamber Lecture.
Worshipful Brother Marston presents a Certificate of Appreciation to Brother Herbert Pence for his many years of work on the Philanthropic Committee.
We made a Philanthropic donation to Mattapan Tech Executive Director, Karrie Ann Jean, wife of our very own Inside Sentinel, Jacques Jean.
We always read the names of all our Brothers celebrating Masonic Anniversaries. Worshipful Brother Stoller was in Lodge, so we used the occasion to celebrate with a cake for dessert.
We finished off the evening with a casual, pizza dinner and a presentation by R.W. Eliott Chikofsky.
If you would like to join us in December when we will be conferring the Master Mason's Degree on Jason Cummins, please RSVP HERE.
