With assistance from WB Jeffrey Marschall (Installing Master, Rochester Lodge), WB Brad Phelps (Installing Marshal, District 28 Representative), WB Neil Hanson (Installing Secretary, Austin Lodge), and WB Steve Neiswanger (Installing Chaplain, Austin Lodge), Stewartville Lodge installed its 2020 Officers on January 14th. We are all looking forward to a great year and hope to see you in Lodge!
Congratulations to Brother James Heydt on the Mason of the Year Award, WB Don Lyman on his 60 Year Pin, and WB Doug Brick who received the Hiram Award! We also wanted to thank WB Ed Gerwill for his year of service in the East.
This January we had the opportunity to install our incoming officers during a public installation on the 9th, and 10 days later, several brothers accompanied our newest brother, James, to The Grand Lodge of Minnesota’s One Day to Masonry event at the Minnesota Masonic Heritage Center in Bloomington.
