Carol Schroeder is retiring from full time work at the Grand Lodge this week and we had a nice lunch with some of the Past Grand Masters and other officers that she has worked with. Carol have faithfully served 21 different Grand Masters! Carol will be working part time for the Grand Lodge from home inputting the old membership cards so we will still have her help. THANK YOU, Carol for a wonderful 21 years!

I had the honor of attending the 145th Anniversary dinner for Lincoln Lodge No. 19 on 25 June. This lodge was chartered in 1868, a most tumultuous time in our Nation’s history. I was also honored to award two 50 year pins. It was a great night to celebrate a great old Lodge!
On 25 June, I received Bro. David Lindsay of Lodge Coila St. Andrew No. 1334 in Scotland as a guest to the Grand Lodge offices. Bro. Lindsay is friends with WB Carlos Yandell and was in Nebraska to visit them and took time to come see the Grand Lodge offices and meet with the Grand Master.
Bro. Lindsay presented our Grand Lodge with a book concerning the history of his Lodge, a Masonic coin and lapel pin. We toured the building and talked about the many differences between Scottish Freemasonry and American Freemasonry. Trust me, we’ve drifted from the old ways a bit! It was fascinating to learn the differences not only in the work but in how Masonry is expressed in Scotland.
