Last evening, Metro East Area Deputy Ken White and I attended the scholarship awards dinner at Garnet Lodge in White Bear Lake. Three scholarships were awarded, including one in honor of Willard McGuire, longtime teacher at North High School, President of the National Education Association and member of Garnet Lodge.
It is such an honor to meet our scholarship winners. These young people are so very talented and dedicated. It is exciting to be a part of sending them off on their educational careers!

Worshipful Master Joe Tebbe proudly told me that there are six brothers waiting to take their Fellowcraft Degree, and there are at least three more petitions for degrees pending. Congratulations, Garnet Lodge!
