Lodge of Low Vale

Lodge of Low Vale

In the spirit of unity, members from both sides of the Mason-Dixon line came together to raise a new Master Mason on the hallowed ground of the Gettysburg Battlefield.  Over 300 were in attendance including members of Herndon Lodge and the Grand Master of PA.

Every Lodge need something representing a West gate…

Abe doing his very best to unite those around him.

Elm tree down!

A very old and very large elm tree on a neighboring property was presenting fall danger to all buildings near it.  A cooperative approach was taken to benefit all parties.   The Lodge supplied the access for the endeavor to proceed.

A crane was used to bring the tree down a piece at a time.

A worker in the tree shows just how large it really was.

One branch – larger than most trees in the area.

A high flying act.

The stump was left this tall because a chain link fence used to be on the property. The tree engulfed it.

Past Masters Night

Past Masters Night

Our October Stated started off with a Beehive meeting, than a fantastic dinner prepared by Brother Justin Matthews.   In the Social Hall, we recognised and thanked the members of the Eastern Star that have fed us so heartily all year long and were treated to a wonderful Founder’s Day Program presented by MW Brother James Litten.   In the Lodge, we recognised and honored the Past Masters of Herndon Lodge.  These men served our Fraternity well and continue to support our Lodge.

Once lost, now found

Once lost, now found

Brother David Harrison pondered all the updates that had been made to the Lodge this year while sitting in the Marshall’s chair. From his vantage point he looks directly at the Treasurer’s desk and he pondered why we he had to see the storage space behind the desk that was only partially hidden from view by a curtain. This thought lead to an idea – build a wall that includes a pocket door to block the view. This lead to action – Brother David built the wall! To literally crown the idea, he incorporated a back lit stained glass sign that has hung in Herndon Lodge since we met in the Ames building 50+ years ago. Well done Brother David!
