Last night, Mr. Kent Smith became known as Brother Entered Apprentice Kent Smith after going through Freemasonry’s Entered Apprentice Degree at Friendship Masonic Lodge No. 160. Brother Smith’s initiation marks a celebratory turning point in this year’s lodge leadership as the lodge looks forward to performing more degrees throughout the next few months of the year.

Many thanks to the brothers who witnessed the event!

The Wrecker

By | General News | No Comments

By: Charles Benvegar

I saw them tearing a building down, a group of men
in a busy town.

With a hefty blow and a lusty yell, They swung with zest, and the sidewall fell.

I asked the foremen, “are these men skilled? The kind you would hire, if you had to build?”

He looked at me, and laughed, “no, indeed! Unskilled labor is all I need. Why, they can wreck in a day or two, What has taken builders years to do.”

I asked myself, as I went my way, which of these roles have I tried to play?

Am I a builder with rule and square, measuring and constructing with skill and care?

Or am I the wrecker, who runs the town, content with the business of tearing down?
