Cataract / Minnehaha Joint Meeting

Last night, I attended the joint meeting between Cataract Lodge No. 2 and Minnehaha Lodge No. 165. What a great night! Over 60 brothers in attendance. A great steak dinner was followed by the joint stated communication and the presentation of the Bronze Lodge Recognition Program award to the Masters of each of the lodges.

Making these visits to lodges has been a real highlight of my year so far. Renewing old friendships and making new friends is just a treat.

And we said good bye to Worshipful Brother James Smail, who is returning to his native Australia later this month. (You can pick him out in the photo - first row, last one on the right. The only brother in a suit!) Jim has been Master of Cataract Lodge, Grand Orator for the Minnesota Grand Lodge and quite active in Scottish Rite during the past eight or so years. Good luck and Godspeed, Brother Jim!
