On January 31, 2017, Golden Rule-Covington Lodge No. 109 welcomed two new Brothers to the family of Freemasonry. Bro. Mike Hamilton and Bro. Randy Herzog were initiated as Entered Apprentice Masons before a crowd of 31 Masons representing at least a dozen different Lodges.
To demonstrate that Freemasonry really is a family, Bro. Randy Herzog’s father is our own Bro. Jim Herzog.
Five of our Brothers from Elvin E. Helms Lodge No. 926 were in attendance at the Degree: Worshipful Bro. Buddy Wallace, Master, Worshipful Bro. Jim Herzog, Worshipful Bro. Ernie Stratton, Worshipful Bro. Ed Tanner, Senior Steward and Worshipful Bro. Dan Kemble, Secretary.
Congratulations to Worshipful Bro. Rob Himes and his corps of officers for some fine degree work! Welcome to Bro. Hamilton and Bro. Herzog! May your Masonic journey be rewarding to you and our Craft!
