Lebanon Lodge Visit

Lebanon Lodge, formerly of Eagan and now meeting in Shakopee, has been around for 27 years and 404 stated communications. According to the charter members present last night, I had the very good fortune to be the first sitting Grand Master to visit Lebanon!

District Representative Dayton Berg presented Lebanon Lodge with their Lodge Recognition Program plaque last night. To the best of my recollection, it was the first Gold Lodge recognition that I've witnessed being presented. Congratulations to 2008 Master Joseph Vernet, the officers and members of Lebanon Lodge for this great distinction.

Two petitions were favorably balloted upon. Five new Entered Apprentices will be initiated next Wednesday. Two petitions for the One-Day Class January 16 were read. I guess it shouldn't have surprised me, considering the presentation that DR Dayton made to last year's officers.

Congratulations, Lebanon Lodge! Masonry is alive and well in the south metro area!
