2017 Widow’s and Awards Dinner

Our Lodge held its annual dinner honoring our Widows and those receiving service awards on Saturday, August 12, 2017. Our late Master, Bro. Buddy Wallace, arranged for Boone County Judge Executive Gary Moore to issue a proclamation designating August 12 as “Ed Tanner Day” in Boone County, in honor of Bro. Ed’s service as our Lodge Secretary from 2009 through 2016. Amazingly, we were able to keep this a secret from Bro. Ed until the time of the presentation. Most Worshipful Past Grand Master and Right Worshipful Grand Treasurer Keith Dreier and State Senator John Schickel joined us on this special day to honor Bro. Ed, our widows and all others receiving awards. Our members, family and guests enjoyed a day of good food and good fellowship as we celebrated another year in the history of our Lodge.
