Spring has sprung! The flowers and grass are growing and so is our lodge. We have conferred
first, second, and third degrees so far this year. We have petitions to receive and petitions to vote on. Our lodge Brothers
have been hard at work practicing the ritual.and conferring degrees. We are fortunate that we can do all of our own work in
house. We are also fortunate to have W;.B;. Jimmie Hannah, W:.B:. Bob Jeselnik, and R:.W:. Vernon Clark to conduct our Study
Clubs. and Monday nights and wednesday mornings. If you know a Brother that would like to improve his ritual prowess, invite
him to our Study Clubs.
