On September 25th, 2012, Samuel Warren Hackett Lodge gained another Master Mason.  All were proud to be a part of the raising of Brother Scottie McLain.  Brother Scottie was obligated a Master Mason by Worshipful JR Knight, PM.  Wor. Brother Michael Allen, PM was again in the East for the second section with Wor. Brother Jim Achenbach, PM in the West.  Wor. Dennis Stahr, Master, delivered the lecture and Wor. Achenbach, PM, again did a flawless delivery of the charge.

Our new Master Mason, Scottie McLain is congratulated by Wor. JR Knight, PM who obligated Brother Scottie.

Michael Allen, PM who was in the East for the second section as they were in the raising of Brother Scottie's friend Brother Rick last week.  Brothers Jim and Michael contributed wonderfully to another fine degree.

And the celebration begins.  As all the Brothers congratulate our new Master Mason.

Wor. Achenback, aka King HoT seemed to really enjoy the pizza!

Wor. Dick Covert, PM, looking so serious as he again stopped a Brother at the gate.  Wor. Dick does such a great job and is always so willing to help.  Thank you Worshipful.

Wor. Steve Laurvick, PM, pouring over the information given at the celebration.

Wor. Dimiter Lyakov, PM, Secretary contemplating the pizza.  And even Wor. David Haslim, PM, Inspector of the 921st Masonic District was recruited to be a part of the degree and as always, when needed, he jumped right in.

Special thanks again to Wor. Christian Quimpo, PM, who again assisted and who is always graciously ready to help.  You are truly appreciated Chris.

Angel Salazar, one of our favorite visiting Brothers also came and graciously consented to be a part of the degree.  Brother Salazar is the Junior Warden of Heartland Lodge #576.  Thank you very much my Brother.

The most important part of each degree is to be sure that it has the "stamp of approval" and Brother Rick Derflinger indicated that we did a good job.
