On May 28, 2013, our Fellow Craft, Brother Nicholas "Nick" Mullen became Samuel Warren Hackett Lodge's newest Master Mason.  Brother Nick was obligated a Master Mason by Worshipful David Haslim, PM, who was also in the East for the second section with Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, in the West.  Worshipful Dennis Stahr, PM, delivered a fine lecture and Wor. Achenbach, PM, Treasurer, did a great delivery of the charge.

Our new Master Mason, Nick Mullen is congratulated by Worshipful David Haslim, PM who obligated Brother Nick.


Brother Nick receives congratulations from Worshipful William "JR" Knight, PM, Master.

And here is a Brother that, because of his work and commitments, we don't see enough of.  Worshipful Steve Laurvick, PM.  He can't always make it, but when help is needed, he is always there, for sure.  Thanks again Worshipful, see you soon.
