Brother TJ Quinn, P.M. receiving the RW’s traveling gavel from the DDGM. Brother TJ was responsible for tracking the gavel’s progress within the First Masonic District throughout last year and was able to secure it in the final month claiming its victory.
A pleasure and an honor for the Officers, Members, and myself to be present for the recognition of 250 years of Membership in our Masonic Fraternity and service to Ephrata Lodge No. 665. Five 50 Year Members were presented their Emblems of Gold last evening. They appreciated the attendance from their Lodge and the District.
These evenings make me even more proud to be a Mason. Thank you to everyone who helped make this a very memorable evening.

All proceeds benefit the Children’s Dyslexia Center of Lancaster, and last year we raised over $2,000 for the cause!
