St. Mark’s welcomes their newest Master Mason

On Monday, February 28th, at a Special Communication of St. Mark’s Lodge the members welcomed their newest Master Mason, Brother Jeremiah Allen.

Brother Allen joins other members of his family that were Masons and to commemorate the event, Wor. Richard Perry presented him with a ring and masonic working tools which had belonged to grandfathers on both sides of his family.

Be sure to take a moment and congratulate Bro. Allen when you see him next.
