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!

Happy Fall Brethren –

Fall is my favorite time of year.  The summer heat and humidity abates.  The changing leaves provide us with nature’s own color palette.  On a melancholy note, the days do grow shorter and baseball season does wind down with the playoffs.  Soon, All Hallows’ Evening will bring us an abundance of ghouls and goblins to trick or treat at our doors.  Herndon Lodge has been invited to join the District 2 Lodges on their float for the Leesburg parade the evening of the 31st.  WB Greg Valker is the point man should you care to participate.   Read the full Herndon Oct2018 TB.
