On June 21, 2016, S.W. Hackett Lodge again celebrated its annual Past Master's night.  Brother Aleksei Sviridov was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason by the Past Masters and "old- timers" of the lodge.  Brother Sviridov was obligated by Worshipful David Haslim, PM.  Worshipful Michael Allen, PM, was in the East for the second section with Worshipful Jim Achenbach, PM, in the West.  The lecture was nicely presented by Worshipful Robert Salini, PM, and the charge was perfectly delivered from the heart by Worshipful James Achenbach, PM.  It was, an important evening of fellowship, ritual and fun.
