Templar Lodge Rededication

Templar Lodge in St. Louis Park completed a revamping and redecorating of their lodge hall. Inspired by the lodge's name, the lodge hall has a castle look and feel, with coats of arms decorating the walls.

The Grand Lodge was invited to conduct a rededication ceremony, which we were pleased to do Saturday. A very nice crowd of brothers and guests were on hand to celebrate the refurbished facilities.

Shown in the photo is yours truly with John Magnuson Master of Paul Revere, Templar Lodge's predecessor 50 years ago when the lodge was built, after the previous building had burned. Next to PM John is WM Nicco Rocque and then PM Alan Betker, Master last year and project manager for this great improvement project.
