We had a very busy night by first presenting Brother Kevin Valentine our Junior Deacon with his LMIP and then presenting Worshipful Brother James Ragsdale with a gift from the 2016 Officers where he received a standing ovation from the Brothers. We had several request for the George Washington Bible starting with Washington-Henry Lodge No. 344 located in Mechanicsville, VA for the 13th of February 2017, George Washington Masonic National Memorial Association located in Alexandria, VA for the 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th of February 2017, and from the Scottish Rite Richmond Valley for 27th of February The lodge voted for and approved the travel of the George Washington Bible to these locations.
