Masonic Sweetheart Award

My next presentation will be to a person who is involved in the work of the Grand Lodge, the Zuhrah Shrine and the Order of the Eastern Star.

Our Sweetheart of 2010 has been the editor of the Eastern Star Starlites, the Minnesota Mason from the Grand Lodge and most recently, the Zuhrah Arabian.

Bobbie Lampe has been most active in the Order of the Eastern Star including as Grand Organist in 2004-5. She has served as Worthy Matron of Granite Chapter several times. She has been an active supporter of Job’s Daughters and has served on the Board of the Minnesota Masonic Historical Society.

Bobbie plays a mean piano. Actually, it was at the Past Grand Master’s dinner last March when I knew Bobbie would be the Masonic Sweetheart this year. She found and played the Notre Dame Victory March for us!

I leave you with this Irish Blessing:

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you,
a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you. Faithful friends near you.
And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.”
