History was made on August 22 when the Grand Lodge officers performed the Cornerstone Ceremony twice in one day for the Mid Plains Community College system. The first stone was done in the morning at the campus in McCook and the second stone was done in the afternoon at the campus in North Platte. There was a great crowd for both stones and the ceremony was well received. McCook Lodge # 135 held an outdoor Lodge the night before which the Grand Master and several Grand Lodge officers attended.
