Patty and I attended the installation ceremony for Worshipful Master Al Niederhaus and the other officers of Plymouth Lodge yesterday afternoon.
It was a family affair, with daughter Emily (Grand Bethel Honored Queen) bringing in the top hat and gavel, daughter Jackie (Past Honored Queen) the Holy Bible, and son Danny (Master Counselor) presenting our Nation's flag. DeMolay members presented the Arch of Steel and Job's Daughters the Living Cross. It was fun and moving to watch the pride in the eyes of WB Al as his children participated in the ceremony.
It looks like a good year in the making for Plymouth Lodge, starting with a celebration of 125 years of Minnesota Masonry on January 19. Good luck, Worshipful Brother Al, and the officers and members of Plymouth Lodge!
