SW Hackett Lodge, on February 26, 2013 saw Brother John Manson passed to the degree of Fellow Craft.  Brother Manson delivered a nearly flawless 1st degree proficiency.  Brother John was obligated by Worshipful David Haslim, PM.  Brother John Fitch, Senior Deacon delivered a nice, first time, "Middle Chamber" lecture and Worshipful Dennis Stahr, PM, was in the East for the second section and delivered the lecture of the Fellow Craft degree.  Worshipful Haslim gave a flawless Charge.  It was a great degree and a fun and important night.

Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, who was in the West for the second section poses with Brother Manson and with Brother John's friend, Brother Charles Caskey, Junior Deacon.

Worshipful Bob Smith, PM, Tiler, congratulates Brother Manson.

Worshipful Bob then, blesses the Master, Worshipful "JR" Knight, PM, as he reviews the material necessary for Brother Manson to prepare for being raised to the Sublime degree of Master Mason.

  The standard fare was presented and the stories began.

No, Brother Bob Salini, Junior Warden, is not in shock, it is actually a flaw in the picture.  Of course, when sitting with Worshipful Haslim and Worshipful Clint Black, who knows, it may be shock.

This time I caught Brother Scheeler, Marshal, in the middle of a blink.  I guess that is what happens when you take candid shots.  It doesn't matter though, all had a good time.

 As proof that is was a great degree and a good time, Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, Treasurer, give the double thumbs up... Wow..Never had a "double" before.
