2019 Pewee Valley Lodge WM Rob Henry with Lockport Lodge WM Steve Apple

 

On Thursday evening (1/17/19) the Brothers of Pewee Valley Lodge No. 829 managed to steal the traveling gavel from the Brothers at Lockport Lodge No. 772.  We had a fantastic dinner with the Brothers from Lockport and enjoyed the excellent installation of officers they had for the 2019 year.  Congratulations to those Brothers!

Visting Brother and Past Master Ron Burgess of Dallasburg Lodge No. 621 presented the Brothers of Pewee Valley Lodge No. 829 with a vintage trestle board from Dallasburg Lodge.  Unfortunately, Dallasburg Lodge had to close due to waning membership, so Bro. Burgess was able to save this trestle board and present this to Pewee Valley Lodge.  Its a great honor to be able to share in the history of another Lodge.  Dallasburg Lodge was in operation from 1895 to 2017.

Brothers from Pewee Valley Lodge No. 829 helped out local girl scout troop 458 by making a few donations to them to help with their latest projects of adding a flower garden and benches to one of Oldham County's local parks.  The brothers are always willing to support all of our local groups that work to preserve and improve our community!

Brothers, if its been a while since you've been to Lodge then you need to stop by for a visit!  We've had a lot of things going on this year.  We have had numerous guests and visitors, including the Grand Tyler from the Grand Lodge of Kentucky, Brother Dick Short.  We've also conferred the EA on one new candidate and will be conferring the EA degree on two more candidates on June 5th!  Check our calendar for more info.

One of the big changes the Lodge has undergone is a fantastic renovation project by the Lodge!  The Lodge has a fresh coat of paint, new carpet, new chairs and has been better organized.  A HUGE thanks goes out to Brothers Gene Crady and Bob Strange for taking charge of this project, and what a huge difference it has made.  If its been a while since you've been to Lodge, then now is the time to stop in for a visit!

Its been a great year for the Lodge, and with the installation of new officers for the coming 2018 year, it promises to be another great year!  Congratulations to all the Brothers who worked so hard during the previous year and to all the newly elected Brothers.  If you haven't been to Lodge in a while, pay us a visit and see what's going on.  As always, we meet the first and third Tuesday of every month, with dinner at 6:30 pm and the Lodge opening at 7:30 pm.
