Pleasant Grove Table Lodge

According to Past Grand Master Phil Soderberg, I had the privilege of being the 20th consecutive Grand Master to attend the Pleasant Grove Table Lodge last night. We had a great time, and a great crowd of about 55 brothers and guests.

40, 45 and 60-year pins were awarded. It is such a pleasure to be present when that happens! Even more so when one of the 60-year member's grandson, a newly-initiated Entered Apprentice was seated right next to him!

While the table lodge was held at the golf club at Chatfield, the lodge meets in the oldest lodge hall in continuous use in Minnesota - having been completed in 1868!

Thank you, brothers, for a wonderful evening of good food and better fellowship!
