On 4 January 2014, Lady Ann and I plus several Grand Lodge officers attended the installation of WB Travis R. Bader to Worshipful Master of Mizpah Lodge No. 302. WB Travis has virtually grown up in Masonry and it was great to see him be installed as Master by his step-father WB Steve Barchus (who also raised him a Master Mason!) Good luck to WB Travis and his officers for a great 2014!

On 19 – 21 September, First Lady Ann and I attended the Annual Communications of the Grand Lodge of Iowa. The Grand Lodge of Iowa has always supported Nebraska well and we enjoyed our time with our Brethern to the east. Iowa also has one the best eduction programs and research Lodges I’ve ever come across. It’s worth checking out on their home page.
Met some old friends, made some new friends and got some good ideas for our jurisdiction.
On April 5, we attended the annual banquet at the Grand York Rite Annual Communication. It was a great night filled with good fellowship, a few laughs and nice meal!
Today I attended the seventy-eighth installation of officers for Sat-ra Temple No. 59 Daughters of the Nile. It was a beautiful ceremony and I wish Queen Angie Huebner the best of luck in her year as queen! (This year is also the 100th year of Daughters of the Nile!)
On March 14 – 16 I attended the annual communications of Kansas. It was good to see some old friends and make some new ones. The best part is learning new ideas of things we could do here in our jurisdiction. The week ended with installation of the officers. The Masonic Temple in Salina is a wonderful piece of architecture both inside and out. If you ever get a chance to stop by, it’s worth the time.
This afternoon I attended the Dr. Frederick Eiche Chapter Order of DeMolay installation held at East Lincoln Lodge 210. The new officers of Eiche Chapter looked ready to launch into their new positions and I want to congratulate them on the work they do. DeMolay, like the other Masonic youth groups, provides young people with the skills and experiences they will need to be successful. Good luck, Master Councilor Derek Sinkule!
