Past Grand Master Elmer Murphey provided a wonderful presentation on Masonry that was very informative for the uninitiated as to what Masonry is really all about. “Masonry is the only organization in the world, who’s primary requirement for membership is a mans character” stated Right Worshipful Murphey.
After the installation of officers, the traveling pins rotated through the stations and newly made Past Master Ken Knotts presented the newly installed Master Jadd Masso the Masters Book. After which Master Masso presented PM Ken Knotts with his Past Masters Apron.
Worshipful Master Masso then made remarks on the meaning of Masonry to him and how grateful he was to be given the opportunity to lead Hillcrest Masonic Lodge for this masonic year.
He also announced that he had the pleasure of having in attendance his grandfather Joe (Grumps) Fitzgerald who had served the fraternity for 60 years & announced that his first official act as Worshipful Master would be to present his grandfather with his 60 year service pin.
The Senior Deacon Eric Heir Assisted Brother Fitzgerald to the altar where he was met by WM Masso and PGM Elmer Murphey III. He was received with much praise for his service to the fraternity by both men, and then his grandson pinned the recognition of his achievement to his suits lapel.
After the ceremony was over, the lodge and our visitors retired to Fellowship Hall where a catered meal was prepared and waiting. Much fun was had socializing with our families and guest.
