Every year the incoming Master strikes a pin to commemorate their year. This year WM L. Kenneth Bray III has had a pin struck resembling the bust of President James Buchanan, Past Master of Lodge No. 43 within a wreath of acacia branches.
Brother James Buchanan served as Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 43 in 1822-1823. His portrait proudly hangs on the wall outside of the Lodge room for all to see. Now, the members can carry Brother James Buchanan with them to all Masonic functions!
