Past Master Brother Bob Payne receives his 50 Year Service Pin and Award from 2020 Master John Adkins

 

Brother Bob Payne is a Past Master of Pewee Valley Lodge No. 829 and was awarded with a pin and free membership card from the Grand Lodge of Kentucky for having been a Kentucky Mason for 50 years.  Few Brothers ever earn this distinguished honor.  Its a testament to this Brothers and Freemasonry as a whole, for a life dedicated to serving others.  Congratulations Brother Bob!

Brothers, due to the ongoing concerns about the Corona virus, the Most Worshipful Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Kentucky, Brother Geary Laird has called to temporarily cease all Masonic activity (including Lodge meetings) throughout the state of Kentucky, through June 28th, 2020.  At which time, the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge will further assess the situation and make a judgement for future meetings and events.

During this time, we encourage you to keep a watchful eye over yourselves, your families, your Brothers, your friends and your neighbors.  If anyone needs any assistance, please contact any of our officers in the Lodge; we will be more than glad to help you (and our community) in any way we can.  God Bless!

Thank you and take care of yourselves!
