Thank you to everyone who attended the Comedy Night event at the Manchester Masonic Hall last night to support the Manchester Essex High School Robitics Team, 2084 Robots by the C and the Manchester Masons. As promised, it was a great night full of laughs and good times. Also, many thanks to Scamps Comedy Productions and specifically Dave Rattigan for a great set of comedy and his help in setting up and promoting the event. See you next year!
John T. Heard Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Ipswich, MA held its Regular Communication meeting last night and it was one of the most enjoyable and inspiring evenings yet for me as a relatively new member of this Fraternity. In addition to general business; Rt. Wor. Eric Frye Bergengren and his Suite were received for the purpose of conducting a Fraternal Visit to the Lodge; the members of the Lodge conducted a vote on Honorary Membership for a Past Master; there was a Masonic Memorial Service for Bro. Gerald W. Blaisdell; Rt. Wor. Bergengren presided in an emotional award presentation to a 25 year member of the Lodge who is being re-deployed to Kuwait for a year of duty, this presentation being conducted with the member’s father, a 50 year Mason, standing by his side; and finally attending members got to experience a flawless piece of work conducted by Wor. John D. Dolliver, performing the Second Section of Fellow Craft degree for a group of seven candidates. A special evening indeed!
