Notes From Grand Lodge

Some items of interest to the fraternity were the passing of several resolutions concerning membership. A deceased, life or 50 plus year member can now have an Endowed membership purchased at a fixed rate of $500. Also, Masons can now hold a membership in another grand jurisdiction (state).
The officers elected for the 2013 Grand Lodge were: Walter Rogers – Grand Master, Jerry L. Martin - Deputy Grand Master, Michael Wiggins- Grand Senior Warden, Archie Scott- Grand Treasurer, and Tommy D. Guest-Grand Secretary.
