Plymouth Lodge 125th Anniversary

Patty and I attended the Plymouth Lodge No. 160 125th Anniversary Dinner Sunday evening. It was a very nice evening. The Scottish Rite dining hall was decorated very nicely and the food was terrific.

After dinner, the Hiram Award was presented to Worshipful Brother Bob Armagost. His most impressive Masonic resume took several minutes to read - and, I'm told, was the abbreviated version! Congratulations, Brother Bob!

Dr. Phil McGlave of the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota gave a great talk on the history of the Mason's fight against cancer at the University of Minnesota, dating back over a half-century.

I then had the opportunity to make a few comments and to present a commemorative plaque to Worshipful Master Al Niederhaus and Plymouth Lodge.

As I come to the end of the year as Grand Master, events like this become even more memorable. Thank you, Plymouth Lodge, for allowing me to be part of this most special occasion.
