Excelsior Lodge Visit

On Tuesday night, I had the privilege of attending the awards dinner for Excelsior Lodge No. 113. They are located in a very attractive building in downtown Excelsior. The lovely exterior of the building was more than matched by the warm reception I received inside the lodge building.

Brother Edwin Scheller (middle in photo) was recognized as a 50-year member of Minnesota Masonry, and Gerald Schoberg (second from right) received his 25-year pin. Congratulations to these two great Masons!

Also shown in the photo, from the left, are District Representative Dean Dorholt and Worshipful Master Steven Maslonka.

Attending these events where Masons are honored is one of the true privileges of being the Grand Master. Thanks to all who have invited me, and especially to the brothers at Excelsior Lodge.
