A Message from the Worshipful Master of Lodge No. 43

Veterans Day occurs on November 11 every year in the United States in honor of
the “eleventh hour of the eleventh month” of 1918 that signaled the end of World War One, also known as Armistice Day.

Lodge 43 Stated Meeting will take place on Wednesday November 11th, 2020. This being such as significant date, I would like to express a reverent Thank You, to all the Veterans of Lodge 43 on this 102nd Anniversary of Veterans Day.

P1070932The statue of the Masonic Worshipful Master was carved in 1996 during Nat Gilchrist P.M. year as Worshipful Master. The intent was to have it passed each year to the incoming Master to enjoy in his home for the his year, then pass it on. Years of travel hasn’t taken its toll on him too badly, although his gavel has since broken off.
