Greetings Brethren, and visitors all! You will notice that as we add photos to the site now, four of them will appear on the front page as a visual indicator that new photos were added. This does not mean that only four photos were added, I just didn’t want to clog the front page with more than that. Simply click “(more…)” or “Read the rest of this entry” under the photos to see the whole album. Alternatively, you can also click the word/link “Photos” up at the top of the page to get to all of our photos and albums on the site at any time. Remember to click more or read the rest of the entry on those albums as well. Thanks!

Brotherhood Lodge No. 375 Installation a BIG SUCCESS
January 31, 2015:
The food: GREAT as always. Thanks to Greg and Carol Wagner who prepared a most delicious dinner of: Tossed salad with Italian Dressing; Home-Made Meatloaf with their delicious secret tomato sauce; smooth and creamy mashed potatoes with beef gravy; tasty green beans; warm rolls and butter; coffee and sweet or plain iced tea.
After a very social dinner with lots of conversation, all present retired to the Lodge Room.
Introduction of the Installation Team and distinguished visitors was offered by R.W. Robert ‘Slim’ Owen, who provided a brief explanation of the event to the assembled members and guests.
Then the Installation Team went to work, as practiced and polished as always, and Brotherhood Lodge No. 375 appreciates their proficiency. The Team: Installing Officer: R.W. Robert Owen; Installing Marshall: W:. Pete Raymond; Installing Chaplain: W:. Lucky Lee; Installing Musician: Bro. Seth Rye (Grand Musician of the Grand Lodge of Florida); Ladies Escort: W:.

Upon completion of the ceremonies and closing of the Lodge, dessert was served in the dining room: home baked chocolate cake with vanilla icing. Once again, delicious.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all in attendance, and officers and members of Brotherhood Lodge look forward to an active and enjoyable year in Freemasonry.
