Braden Lodge #168 welcomed two new members into the Fraternal Brotherhood of Freemasons at an Entered Apprentice Degree held Thurs, Sept 15, 2016! Shown in the front row (L to R) are our newest Brothers, Chris Hassinger of Apple Valley, and Eric Moen of Minneapolis. Behind them are our principle officers (L to R), Junior Warden Matt Gallagher; Senior Warden Jeff Koltveit, who did an excellent job serving as Worshipful Master for the evening's ritual; and Tim Grube, Braden Lodge's Worshipful Master for 2016. A nice crowd of 28 Brothers were present for this special evening, and those presenting the Degree Ritual and Lectures did an outstanding job!
Congratulations, Chris and Eric! -- Best wishes as you continue your journey for Masonic Light with the Fellow Craft Degree scheduled for Oct 20th at 7:30pm. Braden Lodge meets at the Arcana Masonic Center, 920 Lowry Ave NE in Minneapolis.
