The 2015 Omaha Scottish Rite Spring Outing at the Papillion Gun Club was a bit on the chilly side this year, but all in attendance were having a great time. The food was excellent and the service was even better.
There was a heated competition on the washer toss platforms. After many hard fought rounds the North Bend team earned their trophies.
There were many guys there to check out a little of what we Masons do. They were welcomed in and enjoyed good company, a little adult beverage, and the customary cigars. All in all a great night!
On Wednesday, May 20, Grand Master John Maxell sat in the dunk tank to raise money for the Omaha Home for Boys through the Omaha Gives campaign.

After speaking to the Offutt Masonic Lunch Bunch on May 13th MW John Maxell was taken to the historic Offutt Parade Grounds where he was shown street light poles that surround three block by four block parade grounds. In the picture you can see MW John pointing to the access plate which has a square and compass on it. Nothing is known about the what, why, or where from of the square and compass, but the square and compass is on each of the street light poles.
