Brethren,

       I want to thank everyone who came out to enjoy Table Lodge. A special thanks to our Toastmaster RW. Keith Herman, WB. Martin Bogardus for his presentation and
Brother Jeff Pennell for providing us with some humor and entertainment. Our brothers from Elkins Lodge as well as the Grand Master and other distinguished guests had a great time.

       The week following our Table Lodge, we packed up and headed west to Gettysburg, PA to partake in WB. Harris’s long anticipated trip. We received a very warm welcome from the brothers of Good Samaritan Lodge in Gettysburg and were greeted by the District Deputy Grand Master of their district. The weekend provided a great opportunity for fellowship with our brothers who made the trip as well as time for us to spend with family and friends who came along.

       There were many interesting facts we found out along the tour of the battlefield, including how many of our brothers, from both sides participated in the war. As it says on the “Friend to Friend” monument, they truly were a “Brotherhood United”. The stories that our tour guide shared with us were astonishing as there was a country at war but the ties of our brotherhood were and still are stronger than any conflict.

Fraternally,
Eric
