Our meeting included the somber, an in-Lodge funeral ceremony for our late Brother George Le Suer. He was raised in November, 1963 and laid down his tools in March, this year.
And our meeting included happier news, the first reading of a petition for the degrees of Masonry.
We went light on other Lodge business in order to turn the Lodge over to Brother Ryan Stubbins (Centralia #63 and Little Falls #176). His topic was fascinating - how ancient astronomy is encoded into the symbolism of Masonry. We had a lively discussion on various aspects of his talk and look forward to his next visit.
What does the Hiramic legend have to do with ancient astronomy and the precession of the equinoxes?
Join us for a fascinating presentation by Brother Ryan Stubbins (Centralia #63 and Little Falls #176)!

VWB John Lawson, Kennewick #153, drove all the way to Longview to be our guest speaker. His topic: the Closing Charge. He went into great depth and we had an interesting discussion.
What is the Closing Charge? The Worshipful Master usually recites it as part of the closing of our meetings. It has an awful lot of Masonry in one paragraph.
