On Wednesday evening November 8, 2017 Lodge No. 43 held a Veteran’s program before their stated meeting to honor their Veterans. The program was lead by Bro. Toad Hoak of Ephrata Lodge No. 665 and the District Degree Officers. There were a total of 23 Veterans honored at the program with each being presented with a Grand Lodge Veterans Lapel emblem. The program ended with the Flag folding program performed by the Harrisburg Sojourners. This was a very special night for one Veteran present by the name of Randy Rice who would later receive all three degrees and become a member of Lodge No. 43. It was a great night for Freemasonry for Lodge No. 43 and the 1st Masonic District.
