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.
