Hickman Lodge No. 256 and Bellevue Lodge No. 325 are the third and fourth Nebraska lodges in the last year to join the Society of Washington Lodges. Both lodges received a portrait of Washington wearing his Masonic apron as well as jewels for the Masters and Wardens from the George Washington Masonic National Memorial of Washington in his Masonic apron.
The lodges are now listed on a plaque outside a replica lodge room at the Memorial where Washington served as Master along with 47 other lodges from across the nation that are members of the Society.
Their donations help to inform tens of thousands of annual visitors about Washington and his membership in Freemasonry.
