Brother Jim's email is below:

Vacation is going well.  I stopped by Ferndale #264, where my wife's Grandfather attended Lodge and met with the Master and Secretary.  We went for coffee and talked for a couple hours about railroading, the profession of the two men. 

They are fantastic men and it was a good visit.  The Chief of Police even stopped at our table to talk with the Master.  The Lodge and the police force have a great relationship and the Lodge owns the Police station. 

I attached some photos of their beautiful Lodge room and some neat pictures.  The building is very nice and costs them a thousand bucks a year to operate.   

See you all when I get back!
