Happy Birthday, Brother Fanning!

At the dinner preceding the degree work for Minneapolis Lodge No. 19 Wednesday, the Tyler of the Lodge was recognized for his upcoming birthday. Brother Donald Fanning turns 99 years young this week!

The photo shows the cake, and Worshipful Master Hulbert assisting Brother Fanning in cutting the cake with the Tyler's sword!

Serving as a most active tyler for his lodge is impressive in itself, but I also ran into Brother Don at Scottish Rite Thursday Night (he's a stalwart serving in the dining hall) AND at the Templar Lodge reconsecration program Saturday afternoon. Wow! What an active Mason, at ANY age!

Thank you, Brother Don, for an example to serve us all.
