||During the Stated Communication held on November 28th, Howard Lodge No. 101 convened under the leadership of Worshipful Master John D. Everhart, Jr. and completed the weekly business facing the membership. The Table Lodge held a week prior was discussed in detail, with special thanks being given to all who helped organize this extraordinary event. Upcoming events for the Lodge were reviewed with the members, to include the 43rd Annual Mayor's Christmas Parade on December 4th, our annual holiday party on December 10th, and the election of Officers for the 2017 term on December 12th.
Additionally, one remarkable gentleman was received into Howard Lodge No. 101 by receiving the First Degree of Freemasonry, that of Entered Apprentice. Congratulations to our new Brother; the Members of Howard Lodge No. 101 recognize your initiation into Masonry and look forward to many more years of fun and fellowship within the Lodge. He will now begin to attend classes with our talented Lodge Instructors in preparation for the First Degree Examination to be scheduled in the future.
Following the Degree Work the Lodge was closed in peace and harmony, after which refreshment was provided in celebration of the new Entered Apprentice and continued growth of our membership.
