Masonry was very well represented during the Oldham County Day parade and celebration in Lagrange, Kentucky on July 16th, 2016!!!  Brothers were there from Fortitude Lodge #47, Pewee Valley Lodge #829 and the Shriners were there too!

Lots of things happening at the Lodge lately!  Last meeting we had a few visitors, discussed quite a bit of business and an Entered Apprentice degree coming up for our next meeting.  Please come out and show your support for this new brother-to-be and to assist the Lodge!

Part of an ongoing program by our 2016 Worshipful Master John Shaughnessy is to recognize brothers on a monthly basis who go above and beyond to assist the Lodge in varying degrees.  We were unable to present last month's award recipient with his award because he was unable to attend (he was most likely golfing :)  Pictured above are the last two months recipients, Brothers Jeff Meade PM and Jim Stephens PM.  Congratulations brothers for your hard work and unwavering support of the Lodge!

Our last Lodge meeting was a great night!!  We raised a new brother to the sublime degree of a Master Mason and had a house full of visitors to join in!  Several brothers from W.G. Simpson Lodge #472 showed up to claim the District #17 traveling gavel as well!

The Brothers from Pewee Valley Lodge No. 829 would like to thank all of those who showed up for, and participated in our Master Mason degree.  It meant a lot to the candidate and is a perfect example of brotherly love and affection.  Thank you!
