Carl W. Lewis, Michael Tucker, John Harrison, Loyal "Doc" Davis, Kent Nelson,
Denver Phelps, Robert Vilven, and current Master Clark Timothy Nichols.
Brother Denver Phelps announced the names of our Past Masters while our current Master, Tim Nichols, passed out roses to their wives. I gave a short talk about the history of the lodge, and American history since the lodge was founded. Bro. Greg Knott managed to record the whole thing and put it on YouTube. I thought he was kidding. I wish I'd practiced more now.
Of course, the only thing anyone is going to remember about the event was the surprise visit from Bro. George Washington. He gave a riveting account of his life, the Revolutionary War, and his Masonic affliation. It was a memorable talk punctuated by the presentation of the American flag--according to legend, General Washington presented the first flag to a Masonic Lodge, and to this day, you'll find one in every Masonic Lodge in the United States, and every meeting begins with the pledge.
Good time was had by all.
