Sunday afternoon, I attended a "Tri-Meeting" at the Owatonna lodge hall. I had never attended such an event before, and was pleased to discover that it was basically a meeting of the Job's Daughters Bethel, but that the Masonic Lodge and Eastern Star Chapter officers were also in attendance and at their stations. (Thus, "Tri" meeting!)
The meeting provided an opportunity for the Job's Daughters to see how their officer roster matches up (quite closely, in fact) with the officers of Eastern Star and Masonic Lodge.
I had a great time with the girls. I was invited to share a few words about the history of Freemasonry, and you don't have to ask me twice to do that! Three new petitions for Job's Daughters were read during the meeting! Looks like great things are happening in our youth program in Southeast Minnesota!
Thank you, girls, for the warm welcome and photo ops! Thank you, adults, Sisters and Brothers, who attended to make the afternoon especially meaningful for the girls.
