Oriental Lodge Table Lodge
Patty and I traveled to Cannon Falls Wednesday night for Oriental Lodge's annual table lodge. It was a great time! We were joined by Grand Lodge officers Deputy Grand Master John Gann - NO WAIT it's JOHN COOK!!! (Now I know how those brothers felt when they introduced ME by a different name!); Grand Orator Bill Callister, Area Deputy James McNeely and District Representative Gary Thomas.
The Heroes of '76 from the National Sojourners presented the colors and gave tribute to the Stars and Stripes.
Brother Earl Johnson received his 50-year certificate and pin from District Representative Gary.
The food and fellowship were outstanding. Thank you, Worshipful Master Paul Otte, WB Bill Callister and all the brothers of Oriental Lodge who made the evening so enjoyable.
