Another fun and important evening on May 23rd 2017 as Brother Vaughn Franklin was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason.  Brother Franklin was obligated by Worshipful Dennis Stahr, Master.  Worshipful David Haslim, Senior Grand Deacon, was in the East for the second section and Worshipful Jim Achenbach was in the West for that section.  The third degree lecture was flawlessly delivered by Worshipful Bob Salini, PM, Junior Warden, and Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, delivered the charge.

Dennis Stahr, Master, congratulates Brother Franklin on his becoming a Master Mason.


Brother Paul Stephenson, Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, Tiler and Brother-in-law, Brother Ben Pulido, who was the Chaplain for the degree,
congratulate Brother Franklin on continuing his Masonic journey.

One more handshake for Brother Vaughn from Brother and Brother-in-law Ben Pulido.

And good friend and "driving force" Brother Paul Stevenson further congratulates Brother Vaughn.

Worshipful Bob Salini, PM, Junior Warden, who was not feeling well but wanted to keep his commitment to
deliver the lecture (which he did excellently as usual), congratulates Brother Vaughn.

And, can't go without a congratulations from a smiling, Worshipful "JR" Knight, PM, Organist.

The great group of Brothers that are always there to help make such an evening special.  Thank you Brethren!

Several of the other Brothers that are usually always here were out for family events, vacations or traveling that was planned
long before this degree was announced.  I just want to thank them also.  You were missed and we look forward to your return.

On to the refreshments....

Brother Vaughn thanks all for their help with his move to Master Mason.

Above and below show that all the Brothers enjoyed the degree and the refreshments.
