We were honored by a visit of our Brother Raymond Gray, Junior Warden
 of Gustavus A. Thompson Lodge #79.  Brothers honoring Brothers...It's great.

At refreshments after the raising, presentations are made.  Here, Wor. Laurvick
presents Bro. Eric with the Bible on which he was obligated.

Here are the by-laws and the study material...The journey has now just begun.

A little "mugging" from Wor. JR Knight, PM who prepared the food for the reception...
It was, by the way, really good.

It was a good degree, a good reception and the best part is that we have another
new Master Mason in our great Lodge.
