On Wednesday evening, March 27, I attended the final School of Instruction hosted by Lancaster Lodge No. 54. While the quality of the work was excellent (Lancaster pulled off a word perfect opening!) the attendance was quite disappointing. Working on upping the attendance at the Lincoln SOI will definitely be a project for the upcoming officers. It is so important that we learn to do the work correctly both in word and floor work. It is our ritual that teaches us and ties us together.

On Tuesday March 26, I attended the 89th annual Past Masters Banquet honoring the most recent Past Master, WB Roy Walton, Jr. We had a great meal and the had some words from WB Walton. This was followed by a presentation of a new custodian apron to WB Roy Smith. WB Smith was also the entertainment for the evening giving us a very interesting walk through symbols used on head stones in Cass county cemeteries.
On Monday the 25th I attended the School of Instruction hosted by Nebraska Lodge No. 1. Once again the Lodge was packed with around 80 Brothers attending. The work was excellent and fellowship afterwards was excellent as well. It’s always good to attend these every year to brush up on the finer points of our work.
