On Sunday, September the 26th, Pewee Valley Lodge No. 829 held it's annual Past Masters and Widows luncheon. This luncheon is a way to celebrate all of our Past Masters and widows of Brethren who have laid down their working tools and passed to the Great Architect of the Universe. It was also a day to recognize Brothers who have been members of the fraternity for an incredible length of time, offering their skills and services to the craft.

The Right Worshipful Grand Junior Warden Bro. Richard Short from the Grand Lodge of Kentucky showed up to present the service awards and give a quick speech honoring all of the past Masters, Widows, Veterans and service awards recipients.
