The Stated Meeting of Monday, January 7, was the premiere of our 2013 Worshipful Master Bro. Robert Wagner, PM. Brother Wagner previously served as WM in 2004. Bro. Barry Wagner, PM, took the reigns as the new Secretary following the retirement of Bro. Severn Newberry after 28 years of service. This meeting also welcomed new Officers Brothers Bill Slabinski, Junior Master of Ceremonies; Jeff O’Donnell, Pursuivant; and Jim Byers, Junior Deacon. And with 2 Holdredges holding 2 offices, Donald Jr. as Senior Warden and Donald Sr. as Junior Warden, they will surely keep our Master on his toes.
A presentation on The Mystery of the Cable Tow was given by one of the Lodge’s favorite orators, Bro. Rev. Dr. Wm. Lewis, Chaplain. The poignant speech discussed the meaning of this Masonic symbol and how it relates to Brothers’ lives inside and outside of the Lodge.
