During our Wednesday, February 16 Stated Meeting, newly raised Brother Nicholas Stephen Mendoza was introduced to the Brethren via a Ceremony of Introduction that was inaugurated that evening.

Bro. Carl L. Swope DDGM, who was visiting our Lodge, witnessed the newly instituted ceremony.


Brother Vincent Lawrence Vesce was raised on Wednesday, February 23 in a ceremony that was truly unique.

Brother Vesce suffered a recent accident and the Degree Work was adapted reflective to his physical limitations. The result was not only a Third Degree the likes of which few of us have ever witnessed, but one that was particularly meaningful for both the candidate as well as all those who witnessed it.
