Welcome to our newly initiated Brother Steve G!
We had a great first degree this morning, with Brothers from Kelso #94, Longview #263, Castle Rock #62 and Centralia #63 helping out.
Brother Steve has already met with his coach and started on his proficiency. We'll have a second degree for him in no time!
Our Mother's Day event was a great success.
We had over 40 people attend, representing seven Lodges in two states. We had about four times the attendees as last year's event.
After introductions we enjoyed a light lunch, then our raffle drawings.
Each of the ladies got a modest gift bag, which included a packet of forget-me-not flowers.
We talked about the Masonic connection with forget-me-nots. For more on that see our MWPGM Cameron Bailey's excellent forget-me-not essay on his Emeth blog.
Then came a 50/50 draw (congratulations Mike C!) and lots of visiting.
What a great afternoon!
Check our calendar for our next events, especially our summer BBQ series!
The Cowlitz Freemasons Mother's Day event is tomorrow and we have a sold-out event!
If you're on our guest list we're looking forward to seeing you.
Remember to bring some extra cash - we have a few raffle drawings and a 50/50 draw.
See you tomorrow!
