Ken Willis Installed as 160th Grand Master of Indiana

The Grand Lodge of Indiana F&AM has concluded its annual communication for 2010. Our new Worshipful Master for 2010-2011 is Most Worshipful Brother Kenneth E. Willis Jr. of Oakland City (located in the far southwest corner of the state, near Evansville).

MWBro. Willis was raised a Master Mason in 1986 in Oakland City Lodge #467, and served as Worshipful Master in 1993. He served the Evansville Valley of the Scottish Rite as Most Wise Master of Trinity Chapter of Rose Croix in 1999 and 2000, and was crowned an honorary 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Mason in 2002. He became a member of Hadi Shrine in 1986. He and his wife Paula are members of the Oakland City Chapter #451 OES.

Thanks to the many brethren who stopped by the Masonic Society table to say hello, pick up a brochure, or sign up for membership. Nathan, Jim and I appreciate it. It was great to see so many friends from across the state.

Props to Randy Zentz who has tremendous work on the Grand Lodge website (much of it hidden behind the Members Only area). And to Jim Daugherty who is about to unleash a flood of new videos, PowerPoint slides, and even a virtual Solomon's Temple online.

Congratulations to now Past Grand Master Charles F. Marlowe on what was a successful, but personally challenging year in the East. Alice and I extend our thoughts and prayers to Chuck and Marilyn.
