Please join me in extending a heartfelt thanks to Eric Murphy for his two years of service as Worshipful Master of Union Lodge #45. Eric rose to the occasion and accepted the mantle of W.:M.: straight from Junior Warden and gave his all to the position, regularly stretching his cabletow beyond what many of us would have been capable of.
Brothers and their ladies recently honored Worshipful Brother Murphy for his term of service along with his family, and presented him with his Past Master’s apron. Please enjoy the following pictures of the dinner and presentation!
Be sure to congratulate Brother Dave VanBlarcom, who was recognized for his tireless service to our lodge as recipient of the 2018 Symbolic Lodge Award! Dave works assiduously as a Steward to keep our membership well fed, and a well fed lodge is a harmonious lodge. He is always quick to volunteer for any lodge activity and is frequently the first to arrive and last to leave; this recognition is long overdue. Congratulations, Dave!
